Welcome to the Wordarrangement blog. I write personalized poems (weddings, births, birthdays, celebrations and more) and I am a recent bride.
I was not a bridezilla ordering a puffy princess dress 18 months before the wedding. I was an untraditional, “alternative” bride. When we started to look at venues, I thought many halls were too “wedding-y.” My fiance and I planned a gathering that was meant to celebrate our love and bring our close family and friends together. It was be intimate and personal. We were crafting our new family’s traditions.
It seems that the “wedding industry” isn’t used to this. They want us to invite hundreds of people and spend our life savings. As important as this day will be, it is indeed one (important) day that marks the beginning of our married life together.
As someone who is a part of the wedding industry, I am appalled by how impersonal the industry is. My goal as both a wedding poet and bride, is to share a slightly different point of view with you.
I look forward to reading your tips and comments, too.
You are welcome to contact me with any questions:
Can we be friends? I’m on Facebook.com, Linkedin.com and Myspace.com.
