Mission Accomplished


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

A few reasons why you practical wedding readers (or “Team Practical” as I call you in my head) are awesome:

  1. You just are, obviously. You leave the best comments, and send me the most supportive emails. You’re positive and helpful, and give such constructive tips and feedback. Half the time the comments here are better then my posts.
  2. Thus far you’ve raised $135 for Dianne & Chuck’s $10,000 wedding in reverse. Can we make it $200? Lets see!
  3. You brought The Engaged Guy out of his slumber. I told you, peer pressure works. Check out his post on the subject here.* And please disregard him calling me famous (it made me blush).

Go, go, Team Practical!

*Ohdearjesus. While you are over there, please listen to the podcast of the post. The auto voice reading the post is so awful-hilarious, it made me actually cry a little bit from the laughing. Perhaps we should start the podcast nonsense here?

    I just wanted to say that I am already married (been hitched for five years) but have been cruising wedding blogs on behalf of my best friend. I LOVE your blog!!! I truly wish that it had been around when I was planning. It is so hard to keep yourself grounded and remember that $4K spent on matching menus and programs is a “want” and not a necessity. My mantra when I was getting married was at the end of the day no matter what happened with the flowers, cake, band, etc. I would end up married and ready to start a life with my favorite person in the whole world. Our wedding was really fun but pales in comparison to the past five years.
