A Bicoastal Bride

Ever since my engagement several months ago in April, I've enjoyed perusing the funny, helpful and heartwarming stories of blogging brides across the country. Now, with only seven months left until my big day, I've graduated to full-swing planning mode, and am eager to share my own best advice, tips and lessons learned with brides-to-be everywhere.

My name is Heather, and I'm a busy bride-to-be living in the Washington, D.C., area while planning a June 2010 wedding in my much-missed hometown of Thousand Oaks, California. A passionate writer, I have experience in journalism and communications.

Just a few months ago, the prospect of planning a wedding on a tight (and self-funded) budget from the other side of the country initially scared me as much as it excited me. But with a little time, organization, and the support of a wonderfully engaged and involved fiancé, I am learning to focus on the things that matter, forget about those that don't, and, most importantly, savor what has become the most fun and enjoyable time of my life.

As much as I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you, I'm equally eager to receive your feedback, ideas and suggestions. Are you planning a long-distance or destination wedding? What are the biggest challenges you have faced? What topics are you interested in hearing more about?

Feel free to shoot me a message, and check back soon for more!
