Becoming an Unabriged Bride

Throughout the month (give or take a little bit) that I've been blogging, I've come across a lot of great ideas, inspirations, and topics. One that I found particularly interesting was The Unabridged Bride workshop. It happened back in July, and I read many great things about it on other blogs. I specifically remember someone saying something about it being so wonderful that they wished they'd had it earlier in their wedding planning. After reading that, I decided that it had to be something valuable and something I needed to do.

Well, today, I got home from work and was doing my usual Internet routine of checking things - Gmail, Facebook, Google Reader, My Blog Stats, and Twitter {{and yes, in that order}}. While on Twitter, I noticed a post from @mckinneyos. It said, "Nashville Brides should check out Only available in Nashville and the only workshop of its kind!!" When I saw it, alarm bells went off in my head!! I got so excited. :) I totally want to do this. After checking out the website - The Unabridged Bride, I knew it was going to be worth it - my time and money.

But first...

What does every future bride have to do?? ... Ask the fiance! I mean, I wasn't going to sign up for something that involved him on Day 3 without asking him if he would join me. {{See? I'm a considerate wife-to-be!!}} And do you know what he said [via facebook, of course]??? "Sure babe, i will do it for you if you want me to."

So, now, do you know what I'll be doing tomorrow? Besides putting my paycheck into the bank? I will be registering for the workshop! The workshop I've heard so much about! Can you tell I'm excited? Yes, I know my wedding is 23 months away. But, I like to do as much as I can in advance because, eventually - if I'm being totally honest, I'll procrastinate in some way. That's just how it goes. You can ask my late night and all nighter papers that were left until the day before they were due. :)

After my extremely long and overly verbose post, I'm going to become an Unabridged Bride in September. I'm going to register tomorrow...which will also land me entries into three different contests.

If you are interested in also becoming an Unabridged Bride, please check out their website! The dates for the workshop are September 10th (7-9), 17th (7-9), and 23rd (7-9:30). It's at the Aloft Hotel in Franklin, TN.

Hope to see you there!


  1. I went and loved it! Definitely a worthwhile event!

  2. It truly is one of the best things ever. I so wish I had it early in the process! Liza rocks.
