Sharing the joy of planning

The other day I received a call that I have been hoping to receive for a while now.  BM Philly just got engaged!!!  I am beyond excited for her and so happy that I get to be a part of her big day just as she is going to be a part of mine!

She has been such a great sounding board during my planning so far and I can't wait to do the same for her. As awesome as this news is, it was not the first friend to get engaged during our engagement (which is to be expected in 25 months), MOH Navy got engaged back in February and was married in September.

Even though all of my friends are excited about the wedding, I find that having other brides-to-be (especially when they are my 2 best friends) to talk to about all the details is much more fun.  Thankfully the boards provide that for us all.

I can not wait to stand by both of my wonderful friends at each of their weddings!  Love you girls!

Were you lucky enough to share your engagement/wedding planning time with other friends?

I COMPLETELY agree about the blog thing. I find that friends aren't quite as interested as I am because they are not getting married. It is frustrating because I want to share, vent, get advice etc. It has been great to find a community to validate me!
Plus, I love reading about your wedding and all the other lovely ladies too!
