Pinkpolka is Getting Married!

So I'm getting married! It's kinda a weird thing for me and my partner (now Financé), Terence, because we're not really interested in making a big deal about it. Since we've been together 6 years this weekend I thought this would be an appropriate time to share the news.

I'm definitely not your typical bride, and being in the wedding industry makes me a lot more critical of what I would want for a wedding. I was hoping to slip away for a chic Palm Springs wedding, but Terence insisted we have a wedding in Edmonton so all our family and friends could share the day with us. The compromise is a small cocktail party for approximately 75 - 100 guests. We also decided to spend a few weeks in Europe this summer so we aren't going to set the big day until sometime in August 2011.

Now that I am on the other side of the table, I think it will be an interesting journey for me to fully understand what all the couples that come to see me are going through. I think planning this wedding will be a great opportunity for me to get out and meet all the exciting vendors Edmonton has to offer. I'm going to journal  my experiences, stresses, and revelations as I go through this process–and of course, I'll share with you all the best local vendors I come across. We aren't going to start looking for venues until later this spring so I'll post more of the exciting details as they come! Of course, the major requirement for my wedding is the stationery has to be absolutely fabulous!
