Top Ten Blogger Brides Posts of 2009

I was recently perusing Get Married and came across an article reviewing the top ten Blogger Bride posts of the year. As you may or may not be aware, I am a Featured Blogger Bride on their blog. After viewing the article, I was shocked and thrilled to see that one of my posts came in 5th! See the complete list of top ten Blogger Bride posts here.

The Blogger Bride post of mine that was listed in the top ten was called This Is YOUR Wedding: Do Things Your Way, and it received such a great response that it inspired a series I started called Going Against the Grain. This was the first post in the series in which I wrote to remind brides that their wedding is a special celebration of the union between them and their future husband, and it's important to remember to do what makes you and your groom happy when planning your wedding. I found that when families get involved and begin to share (or in some cases, demand) their opinions and ideas be included in your wedding, that it can be really easy to succumb to the pressure and lose sight of the vision that you and your groom had for your wedding. So this post served as a reminder for myself, and hopefully other brides out there, to remain true to yourselves and do things your way, even if they include some unconventional ideas!

And finally, congrats to all the ladies who made the top ten this year! I'm looking forward to more great posts from them and everyone else in the New Year!

Cant wait to check it out! :) And its so true...families always try to invite their friends and people they know and it becomes a crazy guest list of 200 ppl...ppl you dont even know! Even if your parents are paying for it or helping to pay for it...do what you feel represents you.

  4. Yea for us! Top 10 of 2009 :) Fun stuff...you have posted many a wonderful read though...not just the one. Anyway, I totally agree with you on your suggestions to do things your way. I always tell my friends, as long as you are not being horrificly tacky or offending a close personally family member or friend, then throw etiquette and what's expected of you out the window and do whatever the eff you want!

  5. Congrats - that's so exciting!
