Planning a Wedding, Blogger Style

This past weekend, some of my law school friends and I had an impromptu Girls Weekend.  One of my friends, a non-blogger, is in the thick of planning her April wedding and brought along a wedding magazine to browse for ideas.  We were sitting on the bed in the hotel and she pulled out her mag — I didn’t even let her turn 3 pages before I couldn’t hold it in anymore.

“You really should check out Pinterest for wedding ideas,” I said.

“What’s that?” she said.

And then I proceeded to rock her world.

Then she was lamenting the fact that she wanted an invitation with Chinese paper lanterns in her wedding colors but was having a hard time finding them.  I worked my Google search magic and voila! The perfect invites were discovered.

Since we were already online, I casually mentioned a friend Kathryn’s blog, Snippet and Ink, for wedding inspiration. And then, I suggested Lover.ly, a virtual wedding idea binder.  And then, because let’s face it, once we social media freaks get on a roll, we can’t stop, I also brought up Dress Rush (soon to be Tailored), a daily deals site for brides and bridesmaids.

And now that it’s 2 days later and she’s back home in New York, I’ve decided to take a deep breath and to stop bombarding her with wedding site after wedding site, because after all not everyone lives online, and somehow they get along just fine. I know!? An eye-opening exercise in self-restraint.

Is there a 12-step program for people like me?
