So, I realize I've never mentioned this on my blog before, but Mr. PBR and I got engaged back in July (on my birthday). The wedding is in April and my plans are slowly starting to come together. We finally got the save the dates out a few weeks back (and a few months late), we've paid for the venue and I've collected about a million teacups and saucers. Tonight my mom bought me invitations that I insisted were too expensive (bless her) and I've actually started to work on one of a million diy projects.

Anyway, it's safe to say that the this stuff is getting to me. I started out the whole process really anti-wedding and I still understand why I felt/feel that way. The amount most people spend on them is sickening and I don't want to be one of those brides. Our budget is $2,000 which is pretty unreasonable considering my mom just laid down 15% of that on invitations alone. But I'm still going to try to stick to my guns and win the battle against the wedding industry.
