You've been PurpleBerried.

To all our Brides, It is with a very heavy heart that I write this letter. We regret having to announce that has run into unforeseen problems beyond our control and will not be available for any events after Dec. 12, 2012.

Every bride's worst nightmare. This is the e-mail I received at the end of the day, addressed to myself along with four other brides, and our wedding planner. Notice the date the message was sent is two days after the facility became "unavailable" for events.

I would like to point out that when I received this e-mail, I was 9641.5 miles away, on the other side of the planet, in Sydney, Australia. I had limited access to the Internet and phone. Needless to say, after I finished reading this e-mail, I burst into tears. I somehow picked myself up and made myself go to sleep, determined to deal with the problem beginning the next day...and that's exactly what I did. 

I have decided to chronicle this up and down journey of wedding planning as a means of communication, and of reflection. I want to offer other brides who are going through the same trials and tribulations as I am, a place to come, a place to relate, to comment, and to laugh. I also want this blog to serve as a means for myself to remain sane, to vent, to cheer and to get excited, and more importantly, I want it to serve as a means to remember--especially when that big day has finally come and gone.
