As some of you may already be aware, Rebecca and I were both members of the W-day metropolis that is the You And Your Wedding forum. In fact, it was how we “met” and a huge part of our planning journey towards achieving the big day of our dreams. There’s nothing quite like logging on to the interweb and gaining advice from like-minded future brides, especially when you are experiencing a particularly stressful time, are stuck for inspiration or could just do with some general advice and are concerned about boring your non-bridey friends to death….
The You and Your Wedding Forum was where I shared my original wedding report “You Rock My World” and to be completely truthful, had it not been as popular as it was, Rock My Wedding may not be here today. It was a combination of the amazing feedback and support from the YAYW ladies on my decisions to do it my way and the realisation that the UK would benefit from a daily dose of on-line pretty that brought these blue polka dot pages to you gorgeous lot.
A wee while ago Rebecca and I were asked by the YAYW team if we would like to participate in a live webchat, discussing the various ways you can put a great big personal stamp on your wedding day. Of course we were both honoured and Tuesday from 1pm until 2pm sees us Blog Queens pulling out all the stops to give you valuable advice, inspirational ideas and the confidence to do it any which way you ruddy well please.
So lovelies, get your questions at the ready and do come join us for some lunchtime fun!
It’s a whole two years since I wrote the first thread of the O’Shea Big Day on YAYW, and after I’d finished I don’t mind admitting I was a bit bereft, the forum gave me such a sense of community and I had spent such a considerable amount of time ( um, possibly whilst I should have been working )…. admiring everyone’s beautifully styled soirees and deliberating over the diverse W-day related discussion topics.
And although we are not and don’t pretend to be anything like YAYW in terms of size or clout in this constantly evolving industry, I do think we are well on the way to hosting a community with just as much integrity and individuality.
Yup. It’s definitely you talented folk that make this place super duper.
Oh and if there happens to be any of the original BBB’s reading today then lots of love and kisses to you all from team RMW!
