The Princess Bride... I so love this movie. But that's not why I posted the clip.
For those of you who don't know yet, I'm getting MARRIED!!! My fiance is a wonderful man who loves God and loves me and I cannot express how blessed I feel when I am with him.

We've set the date for June of this year, but haven't signed a contract with the church or anything like that, so I guess I have to say that the date isn't set in stone yet. So far, I've purchased my dress and chosen my color scheme, picked out bridemaids dresses, and decided what I'm going to give as bridemaids' gifts. Which means I've got a long way to go of this thing is going to come together before June. Eek!

I have never been the kind of girl who dreamt endlessly about her wedding. (I was more concerned with the groom!) Since meeting Matt and getting more involved with him, I've started thinking more about the big event and how I'd like it to come together and look, but my ideas changed and I never wrote anything down, so I never really got a complete picture in my head. So now I've got to put this thing together and to be honest, I feel like I' have no idea what I'm doing! My budget is tiny, and I'm thankful for that, because I wouldn't know what to do with anything bigger.

Point in case, I've got a little less than 6 months to plan a simple, beautiful, meaningful and frugal wedding, without losing my mind. HELP!!! :-)

Use your blog to ponder ideas and get feed back from those of us who've been there! Also, network with other brides on The Knot to find the best local deals!!!!!!

I would most definitely look on the knot.com . Also, to save a lot of money, get married at a park, you then just need the pastor and chairs.. you could even do your reception at the park (but I think you'd have to get permission from the park for this, but it is like $200 or so I think)... Let me know if I can help. I planned my wedding in 4 months. :)
