I'm an old soul. I like to collect letters and love snail mail. So, even though there's this handy little thing called Pinterest, I still like to collect all things wedding the old fashioned way--in a file folder!
Y'all already know that I go to a TON of bridal shows for work and that I'm at the age where a lot of people I know are starting to get married, so what better way to keep things organized?
Spoiler Alert: No, Josh and I are not getting engaged anytime soon. Whenever it happens, though, I'll be well prepared and well versed in all things wedding.
This file folder has everything ranging from brochures I pick up from my favorite vendors at the bridal shows I work, to programs from weddings I've been to with certain elements starred for future reference.
I even have my parents enlisted to pick things up from the weddings THEY go to. My dad really gets into it--I love it! I get a full recap of things they liked and things they
hated didn't really love. One can never be too prepared.
This folder has come in handy when helping plan my friend's wedding too! Picking out songs is harder than it seems and it was beneficial to have some real life examples to go off of.
Josh's mom asked me not too long ago how long it would take me to plan my "hypothetical" wedding. In all confidence, six months, given the right vendors were available and thanks to my very real file folder. (this is after I get my braces off of course!)
What can I say? I'm a planner, it's what I do.
