Wedding Fever!

     In honor of my new job as a part-time wedding coordinator and my sister getting engaged, I set to work creating a wedding planner. I remembered the headache of planning my own wedding - bits of paper here, email addresses there, what was that website again? Right, the process of planning a wedding is not as glamorous as J-Lo makes it seem. Since the majority of my relatives live in Singapore, and I am closer to my family than he is, my hubby and I decided to have our wedding there, halfway around the world. Thankfully my dear uncle helped a ton by visiting all the vendors I could only view from the screen of my laptop. In the end it all went off without a hitch.....LOL..... I got hitched without a hitch....I crack myself up.
     Anyhoo....I was checking out Etsy and realized there really wasn't a proper variety of handmade wedding planners for sale. A bride needs more than one or two choices! I set to work. I LUUUURVV pretty paper, so it was really just a good excuse for me to indulge in embossed, embellished, em-everything-ed card stock and scrapbook paper. And don't even get me started on the stickers! It took a while, but after scouring the internet for updated sample budgets and lists and thinking in the shower and in bed (where my true genius flows), I produced a wedding planner that will be helpful at keeping brides organized. I made a demo and showed it to my sister, and we headed to the store to find papers for her own planner. Hers should be completed by this weekend, but I've made a few others in between. Check them out at my Etsy store, AnnelynDesigns, but for now, here are a few pictures! The next round of planners will be in formal black and white prints with touches of purple or tiffany blue, and after that, girly pinks, yellows, and greens!
