Hello, and welcome to the QCWeddings Blog! My name is Jen, and I am a brand new member of the QCWeddings.com family!
Here is a little bit about me...I am a Quad Cities bride to be, and I am engaged to the fantastic and supportive love of my life, Aaron. We were engaged in August of 2008 and will be married in September of 2010. We both grew up in the QCA, and most of our family and friends also live here. We love the incredible amount of opportunities that the QCA provides while still giving us the feeling that we are in a network of families! We are smack dab in the middle of our wedding planning process, so that means some things have been decided upon and other ideas are still rolling around in our heads. There are so many great choices to consider when you are planning a wedding!
That leads me to explain what I am doing here. I'm joining the QCWeddings.com family because not only do I love to plan for our wedding, but I also love to do research on all wedding trends, inspiration, and local vendors who will inevitably help us all to have the most fantastic wedding day possible. I had been researching and planning ever since we were engaged and loved it so much that I eventually created my own blog about my wedding experiences and other related news about weddings and the QCA. When I saw that QCWeddings.com was adding a blog to their fantastic site, I knew that I wanted to be a part of the action.
The great thing about a blog is that it is a dynamic space. It can change and be updated as quickly as our ideas flow. It can hold the voices of many people rather than the viewpoints of a few. It can hold as much information as we can pack into it, and the information can be organized so that it is user friendly in depth and breadth as we find answers and inspiration.
The QCWeddings.com blog can serve our area so well in that it is going to be a place where brides, grooms, families, friends, guests, and vendors can come to interact and find credible and comprehensive information about wedding planning. As an extention of QCWeddings.com, this will be a positive place where all are welcome, questions are invited, information is exchanged, and members and vendors become friends and family.
I have so many ideas for items of interest that will be featured in the future, but this blog is not just about what I want to see. We are inviting all QCWeddings.com members to have a home here on the blog. Are you a couple that would like to feature items from your wedding planning processes? Have you created unique or practical do-it-yourself projects? Are you working to stay inside a certain budget? Are you a newlywed couple that would like to share your vendor experiences and details from your wedding day? This is where you do it. Frequently, we will be featuring real brides and grooms and others involved in wedding planning in the QCA on this blog. Your wedding details could be featured! In doing so, we know that your story will inspire others who are planning a wedding! If this is something that interests you, or if you have any ideas of what you would like to see on upcoming posts, please shoot me an email at email@example.com!
