It sounds so cliche, but traveling really takes it out of you. I'm sure you've all heard the phrase, "I need a vacation from my vacation," but boy, that couldn't be more true for this NOLA bride! Australia was a blast, though, and we were able to see and do a lot of things on our bucket list- Sydney and the Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, the Australian Zoo, Surfer's Paradise, etc. Overall, if you are ever able to, I highly recommend making the trip Down Under- it is well worth it! Back to the grind.....I will be posting my next Wedding Wednesday (a venue review about the Irish Cultural Museum off of Conti Street), but before I delve into the juice, I wanted to share a little something with you.
During my vacation, I decided that I want to expand on my blog a bit and share more of what I would like to see or have been searching for as a bride-to-be in the NOLA area. I will still be posting reviews and my experiences, however, I'm going to host a series of tips and advice that have helped me (or would have, if I could find them) along the way. I'm going to be sharing everything with you from time of year considerations, timelines, and the budget you can expect in NOLA, to the DIY projects I have been working on (shout out to my DIY Brides!) and even Second Line planning. Since I'm new to this entire process (wedding planning, New Orleans, blogging...), I have many questions that are typical of most brides, but also questions that are unique to only NOLA brides. My hope for this series is to help all of you sweet NOLA ladies (and myself) navigate your way to an amazing wedding day.
Let's do this together!
So stay tuned for my first ever Blog Series, coming soon! I'm going to start this series from the very beginning (as in, from the moment after saying yes), so if you have any specific questions you would like answered, or topics you want discussed, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or post in the comments section below! I can also always be reached on my Instagram at @newlynolabride!
Also, I JUST launched my official @NewlyNOLABride Twitter account, so all of you Twitterific users out there- be sure to follow me for NOLA wedding updates, bridal information, pictures, inspiration and more!
That's it for now. My Wedding Wednesday Venue Review is on it's way!
