My blog started out as a way to write down what happened during our engagement period. Mathew and I had an 17 month engagement, and I started my first blog post on January 6, 2011 with the intent that only family would be reading.
Our wedding was planned to be a little bit vintage with a modern flair, and thus, the name The Vintage Modern Bride was born.
I spent many a blog post talking about random wedding things: wedding nightmares, roles and responsibilities to think of before getting married, the best (and only) way to have a cake tasting, picking out bridesmaid dresses, and even my last words as a “miss”.
After we got married, I spent much of my time with Mathew and put blogging aside. To me, it was the the best thing I did. My marriage definitely takes precedence over my blog, and I’m so glad to have taken the time out early on to really “live life” with Mathew. After a break in 2012, I came back in July to blog full force. It was then that I changed the blog to The Vintage Modern Wife, got my signature blog design, and the rest of history…well, it’s still being written 😉
