MOB: HERE COMES THE BRIDE…And other “Side Notes”


Like I promised last week in my post: I’m introducing you to the person responsible for making me a Mother Of the Bride-again! Here is the beautiful BTB Kiersten… 


The Beautiful Bride

Kiersten and I have been busy working on “our” wedding to do list. Maybe I should say MY wedding list. With Kiersten living out of town- and all of our wedding planning being long distance- I hit the panic button. Seriously, my list was 3 typed pages long. And in true “Debbie” fashion I used bullet points and check marks, highlights and underlining.

(Side Note: regarding the fabulous “bullet point”. This has got to be the most incredible invention known in typography. )

The Amazing Bullet Point

This is the BULLET POINT. Commonly used when typing a list.

  • Allows you to list everything without worrying about what number’s next
  • My personal favorite.
  • Easy to mark off with a simple “slash” i.e. /


Oops...wrong SLASH!

And I don't mean this SLASH...


Then I emailed this MOB masterpiece to Kiersten. Every few days I call her  and make her compare notes. Then I run to my list to mark something off. What a sense of accomplishment achieved with a simple stroke of the pen!

Side Note:  Look for Deb’s soon to be published “Extremely Long Check Lists for The Perfect Wedding…And Other Ways to Irritate The Bride To Be”



 BUT I still feel like there are so many loose ends.

At My Wits End

Loose Ends = Wit's End


So this week I came up with a brilliant idea-An Inspiration Board. (Note to self: add this to the “to-do” list.)

Kiersten and I have started this week emailing pictures back and forth. We are busy putting our wedding ideas into picture form so that we can visualize how we want the wedding to look and feel.

For example, here are some bridal bouquet ideas we are considering:

P.S. Here’s just some of the colors that we are going to use: Sterling and Ice Blue.
