Wedding 2.0

Last night was a trip down "it is barely a memory" lane.

My friend's daughter is getting married. (obviously this friend much be MUCH older than me...right?? Right? Well, she's actually a few months younger than me. Ug. I so don't want to think about that!) Her budget is even tighter than ours ever was, she started planning a few weeks ago, and she's getting married at the end of March. As in this March. As in a month and a half from now. Wow.

Interestingly, before she ever even talked to me, two of her colors are the same as ours (she was supposed to be at the wedding but got super sick the day before) so we have already handed over everything we had left that might work for her in those colors.

Last night I introduced her to Vistaprint and she picked out what she's pretty sure will be her invitations, and by the time I'm done helping her, it will create a consistent theme for the whole thing. Already have coupons for craft stores cut out and I'm ready to try to find the perfect stamp to match the theme.

Can you imagine trying to plan a wedding these days without a computer? Well, she's done an amazing job so far! Doing all she has with a full time job and 3 kids under 5 just blows my mind.

So by the time she, future hubby and the kids left last night, we all knew that we were in this journey for the long haul, and were excited to be there. We are here to help however we can. And in our own way, we will even be walking her down the aisle - she will be wearing Kandi's wedding shoes and my veil.

Let's plan a wedding.
