Becoming The Nguyens

We finally did it! We got married.  We became "The Nguyens." The wedding was beautiful. It was just a time to be in front of those closest to us and actually come together as a family.  A time to celebrate being together. On the day of our wedding while I was getting my hair and… Continue reading Becoming The Nguyens

It’s Getting Close

Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnnn!! This wedding is like 2 weeks away.  Holy Crap! Just about everything is ready and put into place.  I still have a few details to take care of, but hey, my motto has been: "I have time."  I'm pretty sure I can use that line until the day of the wedding.

Quang and I were never really into the idea of having a wedding.  Or even getting married.  In all honesty, we have basically been… Continue reading The Non Proposal

Please say yes to a dress

Appointments complete! For today at least.  And what a day it was. Dress shopping was pretty stressful and tiring.  Dress after dress.  Detail after detail.  So many options.  No wonder I put it off for so long.  There were so many nice dresses and I can see how easy it can be to get swept… Continue reading Please say yes to a dress

Dress Shopping Begins…then Ends

So, I'll admit that I guess I'm a tad late on the whole wedding dress shopping thing. This wedding is happening soon (like in 4 months) and I do not have a dress.   I only just recently picked my colors.  I finally decided to browse some wedding boutiques in the same area with my… Continue reading Dress Shopping Begins…then Ends

The Confirmation

Before I start getting into this story let me just go ahead and say that I'm just not that into weddings.  Well, let me rephrase. I am into weddings. Yay for happiness! Just not the one I have to plan.   When it comes to my own wedding that I actually have to do work… Continue reading The Confirmation
