Wanna-Be Wedding Planner

Hey Wanna-be’s! As promised, I’m following up with another wedding blog!

Hoping this one gets more feedback, I felt like my last one fell a little short! I get it, people don’t like realizing they’re Bridezilla’s.

And it’s hard hearing real life examples.

And sometimes I ramble too much.

Whaaattttt.

Oh well. I thought it was fun, AND I got to show off my wedding pictures. Win for this wanna-be. 

This week I’m tackling saving some cash on the wedding and reception. It’s a huge issue, and let me tell you, it’s hard to save and have things look like the fairy-tale wedding you’ve always dreamed about!

Coming from my own experiences, I’ve put together a few of the top ways to cut some corners on that final wedding bill:

  1. Determine Your Budget
  2. Shop Around
  3. Don’t Give Into the Wedding Industry
  4. DIY
  5. Skimp on what you can, Go Big on what you want

Hope you find it helpful!

Wanna-be Wedding Connoisseur

Hello, everyone! It’s been practically forever since my last blog, and I know you’ve all been begging for another wanna-be chronicle! Actually, I’m not sure any of you have even noticed, but I like to pretend I have fans writing me, pleading for another post, and sending me their own ideas for future blogs.

Wanna-be Blog Star, right here.

I have had a couple of incredibly busy months! Between a promotion at work, wedding planning, battling first trimester exhaustion (surprise!!), and life, I have had zero time to do anything “meaningful,” like laundry or blogging.

Not that I’d classify blogging in the same category as laundry, but life was nuts, a few things had to take the back burner. Sorry to my now husband, who’s had to scrounge for clean clothes for weeks (months). His legs aren’t broken and he knows how to do laundry, but… I digress.

Since getting engaged and planning the wedding, which was absolutely amazing, by the way (I’m biased, but really), I have had the Wanna-be Wedding Connoisseur/Planner/Extraordinaire bug.

Does everyone feel this way? It’s so weird going from constant planning and lists, to totally done. Only Thank You cards to send and leftover centerpiece junk to get rid of. Talk about a total let down!

Wanna-be Cake Boss

Hey guys! As I said in my last post, I started this blog for fun only, and I’m sticking to it! It’s been a little while since my last post, but life is busy and “writing for fun” shouldn’t be forced. So here we are, a couple weeks after my 1st post, with post #2… Wannabe Cake Boss!

Let me start by saying… I love love LOVE to bake.

Baking is one of those things I would say I’m better than okay at, but I’m definitely still considered to be a home-baker.  Although, I am a total Wannabe Baking Boss, which brings us to this week’s fail.

A Wanna-be Bibster

Before I get into the actual blog, I want to preface it. This is not a How To Blog.

I’m a wanna-be just like you, and trust me, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. I’m still trying to figure that out myself! This blog is simply to share what worked for me and what didn’t. After that, you’re on your own, kid. 

On to the post!

A few months ago, I had one of my earth shattering ideas. BABY BIBS. Baby bibs with animal faces on them, to be more specific.

Before I continue, let me tell you something about myself. When I get an idea in my head, there’s no stopping me. I get 100 percent invested, usually within 10 minutes or so of coming up with the idea, to the point where I’m planning out business names, setting aside money in a saving account for potential expenses, and researching competitors.

This happens almost once a month… Total Wanna-Be entrepreneur. *Sigh*

Back to the bibs- and my potential company, Bibster. (Yeah… my non-existent company has a name…).
