{{Goodbye M&M's and Kit Kats}}
The battle of the bridal budge...
It's like saying goodbye to a best friend who's moving out of the country!!! (not quite that dramatic but...) I have been trying to lose these last stubborn 10-15lbs and I just cannot seem to do it!!! I keep falling off the wagon and then getting back on again only to find that hidden box of chocolate brownies or yellow cake in the back of the cupboard a few days later....

Some of the things that I love:
*Chocolate anything! (M&M's and Kit Kat’s are on top of that list)
*Waking up for breakfast (or going out to try a new brunch menu if I feel like sleeping in past 8am)
*Chinese Food
*Burger King (just happens to be my favorite fast food restaurant)
*Sushi and sushi rolls (pack on the special sauces please!)
*Not to mention I work in a restaurant as a server…(OMG this is going to be hardier than I thought!!!)

So as you can probably tell, being in the food industry, I just love food and I love to eat....

{{Will You Be My Bridesmaid??}}
My first and probably ONLY DIY!!!! Ok...I'll be honest...I am not the craftiest person around...I mean I was a brownie AND a girl scout but I must admit that my mom helped me with most of my school projects...I, however, will say that WBC and PW (Project Wedding) has inspired me beyond what I could have ever imagined...I decided to embark on this task on making my own "Will You Be My Bridesmaid" cards after viewing another PW bride's bio... In each design I wanted to personalized each card for the same personality that she portrays and also tell her why she is so important to me!!! Mine are very different yet the only similarity is the dress design on the front...I will be putting rhinestones on the dress to give it some bling...I found a poem off the internet, tweaked the words so that they were more personalized for each of my dear friends whom I asked and VOILA!!! I am pretty darn proud of myself considering how LONG it took to make these!!!

Its true what they say, patience is a virtue!!!!

This is how the inside will read....
10. You look great in (color of bridesmaids' dress)...
9. Someone has to help me go to the bathroom in a ball gown...
8. I know you will plan a great bachelorette party...
7. I will give you a great bridesmaids gift...
6. I want the people at my wedding to see how beautiful my friends are...
5. These wedding favors and invitations won't make themselves...
4. You get to have the best seat in the house at the ceremony...
3. I need someone to pretend to want to catch the bouquet...
2. My fiancé asked for some hot girls to be in the wedding party...
And the number one reason you should be my bridesmaid is...

Because you are one of my best friends and I love you!!! Will you be my bridesmaid?

Pink {{Hello ladies of WBC}}
  
{{Hello ladies of WBC}}
I am so thrilled to be a part of this creative, exciting, and wonderful community...There is so much that I have learned about weddings and so many ideas that I have stumbled upon because of you wonderful people.. Now, about me and mine, I've made several posts on here since I joined WBC but I just wanted to take a second to say HI and introduce myself... My name is Anica and my FI's name Is Amory (AJ for short)...We have been together for 2 years and engaged for almost 2 months now...We have a gorgeous little boy together who just turned one year old in October and we also each have child(ren) from a previous relationship...As stated before, we are paying for the entire wedding ourselves so I anticipate on trying my hand at this thing they call DIY...I am far from being crafty but I am definitely going to give it my best shot...The areas that are of most importance to me is the reception decoration, the CAKE, my dress, his tux, the reception menu, and the honeymoon...

Happy wedding planning to the newly engaged and congrats to those who have already gotten married!!!

I've been going back and forth on doing this style for a cardbox or the one with the stacked boxes... I truly am in love with both of them but for some reason I keep coming back to the profile pic.. I think it will be displayed nicely with some of our engagement pictures and also have a small light encased in the box to give the shadow effect...

I found this picture and this is exactly how I want my tables setup...I'm torn though cause I also want to alternate each centerpiece for the tables...If I'm not able to do this for the actual tables (I think the reception site has round tables) I will definitely be doing the second picture for the Head Table and still alternate the table centerpiece for the remaining tables ...

{{Ask A Question}}
MIA FI
So my FI has done some research and by that I mean he leaves little notes and/ or text messages for random websites for me to go and research but as far as actually sitting down with me and telling me "this is what I want" I have yet to get that from him...The only thing that we have completely agreed on was the colors...I showed him a picture of what it would look like and he was on board from the jump...He keeps telling me that he wants the wedding to be all about me and what ever I want is what he agrees upon...on my wedding day, I'm not marrying myself...I'm marrying my best friend..I want and need his insight on even the littlest things like the candy for the candy buffet or ideas for the kids corner...how can I get him to be more present in the planning process...clearly he has no idea what we go through!!!!

On this day, I will be marrying my best friend and gaining a partner in life and for life, but I will also be gaining so much more; a new family, new friends, and new memories…Not only do we want this day to be about love and our marriage, but we also want it to be a celebration full of memories…
