The Road to Mrs. – My Wedding is Two Weeks Away!

Nae shares her final words with Triple B before her trip down the aisle.

My Road to Mrs. will come to an end in a mere two weeks and wow…..What a journey this has been! Planning for our special day has been exciting, overwhelming, fun and exhausting. Every couple’s experience with wedding planning is different but here are a few things that really made our process work well for us:

1.     Hiring a wedding planner is so worth it!

I cannot fathom what this process would have been like without a planner. From thinking through the tiniest of details to working with vendors, our wedding planner has been a much needed guide through this entire process. This here wedding planning thang is a thriving business and without the guidance of someone who can navigate that world, it is so easy to get swept up in a litany of unnecessary details.

2.     Tradition is great but personalization is king.

One of the things that I am most proud of is the way in which Mr. DrummerBoy and I have managed to add our own personal touches to various aspects of our wedding day. From the invitations to the bridal party to our guest seating, our day will be a complete reflection of us and our relationship — this makes me smile.

3.     Stay focused on the “end game”.

All of the planning in the world should not take away from why you are planning in the first place. During the stress of wedding planning it is easy to get caught up in petty arguments, bridal party drama or family expectations. It’s important for you and your fiancé to remember that the day is ultimately about you. Anticipating our post-wedding life as husband and wife is beyond exciting and never felt more real than when we applied for our marriage license.

No Turning Back: Nae & Mr. DrummerBoy Make it Official!

It’s official! I am looking forward to the next chapter in our life and growing together as we face all of the lessons and blessings that await us!

Thank you Bridgette and Triple B readers for all of your encouragement and allowing me to share this journey with you!

    Nae, it has been an absolute pleasure to have you as part of the Triple B family for the past few months. Your candidness, creativity and humor were a welcome addition to my editorial line-up. (Not to mention you consistently submitted clean copy.) I wish you and Mr. DrummerBoy the best life has to offer — health, happiness and all the laughter you can stand. Looking forward to sharing the big day in Tie the Knot Tuesday!

  2. I’d like to thank you for allowing us to share your journey. You have dropped many jewels with the Triple B family. I’m sure I speak for most when I say “I HOPE THE TWO OF YOU ENJOY THE BIG DAY.” I also hope everyday after the wedding is far more enjoyable. I’m also looking forward to your Tie the Knot Tuesday story. Take care, cuz.
