A Call For URL’s


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

As you might have noticed, I am less then excellent about updating my blog roll. Blogging is a joy for me, but I tend to squeeze in my writing to small quiet moments in my busy days, so blog rolls and small details sometimes get overlooked. But! In the next few weeks, I want to start putting together a compendium of practical wedding brides and grooms*… a practical reader, if you will. So, all you budget savvy, crafty, and chic bloggers, if you’d like to be included, please leave me your URL in the comments.

Go team practical! (Now lets go save some money).

*un-engaged folks are of course welcome.

    I have two. One is my typical every day blog and I occasionally put wedding stuff and the other is my wedding blog, which I must admit is rather neglected. It’s the place for the guests to see whats going on preparations wise.

    Oh! I found a lovely dress (that I totally wish I could cancel my Melissa Sweet and get instead. Stupid all sales final) that I thought you might like if you haven’t already seen it.

    Beautiful dress

    Meg, you are my new friend. I’m recently engaged and am getting married in Oct (yes, Oct ’08; yes, a 4 month engagement). I am a practical gal at heart (and luckily so is my fiancee) so our wedding is going to be practical. I can’t believe how nutso everyone is getting about what we’ve decided to cut out or do our own way. We’re not going non-traditional, we’re just going logical. In other words, we’re not doing it just because it’s always done that way.
    So I think I’m just going to sit and read your blog for a while and remember I am NOT crazy. Everyone else is crazy.

    Thanks again!
