This is a sponsored post in collaboration with MODE.
Posting has been extremely light around here over the last few weeks, and I assure you that I have some very good reasons. The happiest of those reasons, though, is that after a 3-year engagement and 9 1/2 years together, my fiance and I are getting married this summer!
You would think that after such a long engagement that we would have our minds made up about what our perfect wedding day looks like. And you would be wrong. In fact, I’m pretty sure our inability to truly make decisions is what contributed to us having such a lengthy engagement. After looking into the traditional ways in which couples usually go about planning and executing their big day, we settled on a complete DIY event right in our very own backyard. For us, getting married in the space we live in and have shared so many great memories in is perfect. Going the DIY route means that there are more plans, preparations, and projects than ever, and we’ve only got a little over a month to go.
In what is perhaps the most perfect timing ever, Woman Tribune has partnered with MODE to put together two unique collections of ideas and money-saving tips for wedding season.
