THE DAFFODILS are coming up, the trees are thinking very seriously about budding, and my crab grass is becoming quite lusciously green. With the sap rising and the angle of the sun changing noticeably, and shirtsleeve weather an occasional reality instead of a memory, one is reminded that "in the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love."Quiet Waters Park is stealing a jump on those thoughts with its second Bridal Celebration Open House March 23.The open house will provide information on bridal clothes, catering, flowers, horse and buggy or limousine service, music, photography, equipment and local accommodations for wedding parties and guests.

For some people, choosing the bridal party can be one of the toughest decisions in wedding planning -- but not for me. I knew my bridal party even before the question was popped. My bridesmaids are my go-to people, my best friends and my family. I didn't have any questions or doubts in my head. The one issue with our bridal party is that it will be uneven. I wasn't crazy about this, but it is what it is. My fiancé has fewer groomsmen than I have bridesmaids, but we decided that we are OK with this.

One of my bridesmaids recently asked me for my bridal shower guest list. Who knew that would be so hard for me? I found myself researching etiquette and trends on who from the wedding invite list also gets an invite to the bridal shower. Well, the research didn't help! In most cases the shower is only for women, which was my preference anyway, so that part was easy. But from what I was reading half of the people say it's proper to invite everyone (at least all women) from the wedding list to the shower, while the other half say that's complete old school and it's okay to invite who ever you want.

My mom's dream (and only request) for the wedding was that we go to “Say Yes to the Dress” in New York City to try on dresses. A fan of the show myself, I was super excited to go along with this request! For those of you who don't know the show (#SYTTD), it's a reality program on TLC based on the experience of brides as they shop for their perfect dress at Kleinfeld Bridal in the heart of NYC. The store is larger than life, featuring some of the most unique consultants you'll ever encounter (just check out the show to see what I mean)
