Weddings, weddings, weddings!


Good thing I love weddings, because basically from now until October I will be going to at least one wedding reception each weekend, and sometimes two! I work at a golf club which is host to these receptions and so I show up, help with last minute setting up, coordinate with the caterer and musicians, as well as tend bar. It is a fun job for me because I get to see how each bride has such different taste in decorations, formalwear and the cakes can be an event in themselves. So, if you find me slacking on the ol' Nitty.Gritty. blog on Friday and Saturday nights- most likely it's because I'm off watching the bridal party dancing up a storm or trying to keep the groomsmen from having too much fun! If you love looking at wedding stuff as much as I do you can click over to www.emilystreet.com for some couture veils; I also love thumbing through Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine for great design ideas- I look at how I can turn "wedding stuff" into "other stuff"...like party favors for a kids birthday or how I can talk my hubby into dressing in 60's or 70's vintage clothing along with me and the kids on location for a funky family photo. See the retro layout in the current Weddings issue for the effect I'm going for. And of course, if we ever do the "flashback family shoot" I will post photos here first! Now, I'm off to get ready for a wedding reception. How lucky am I?!

I love wedding stuff too. I'm not getting married anytime soon, so I'm too chicken to buy Martha Stewart or InStyle Weddings.
