Wedding Wednesday {Kayla}

Today Kayla will be sharing a very important part of wedding planning with you! I have been emailing Kayla back and forth for a while and discovered that she is planning a wedding with a similar "country chic" style as mine. I hope that you enjoy this whether you are reminiscing on your wedding day, planning one currently or dreaming of a future one.

Hi ladies!  I'm Kayla and I blog over at Keeping Up With Kayla.  I'm so excited to be here with you today sharing some "wedding" talk.  First up, a little about me.  I got engaged on November 10, 2012 when the love of my life got down on one knee and gave me the surprise of my life!  You can read our full story here.

So, ever since I have been planning our wedding and hoping to make it everything we want it to be.  We will be getting married on October 12, 2013.  Yes, that's an eleven month engagement.  Sometimes I think that's too long and then other times I think it's not long enough.  Too much time on my hands, can be dangerous. :)  It allows time for me to change my mind, LOL.

So, today I want to talk about one of my favorite parts of wedding planning thus far- asking my girls.

I have always wanted a "simple" wedding, but when it came to who I wanted in my wedding I had to step outside the "simple" mindset.  There are six ladies who will stand by my side on my big day.  Each and every one of them means the world to me and I can't describe how excited I am to have them there with me.

A few are childhood school friends, and a few are members of Brian's family.  But in the end they are all my "sisters".  Since we all live miles apart (boo!) I had to send out a mass e-mail to ask everyone at once!  All said yes, and the game faces were put on.

I picked out their bridesmaid dresses before I even found mine!  They are THAT important to me!

So, my advice to any newly engaged brides, be sure you ask who YOU want and not who others thing you should.  These are the girls who will be beside you to witness the greatest day of your life...

and to help you with your dress when you have to pee! ;)

You can head over to my wedding website to check out our bridal party! Thanks for having me, Samantha!
