I don’t even want to think about how many readers we have lost over the months we haven’t been blogging. It hurts to think about it. Though our stats do say we still have a regular flow of readers, I think it’s probably to check if we have posted something new. Shame on us! Two months of no updates! Shocking!!!
There is a valid reason though! Promise!! No lame excuses here- we have a fully valid reason, which once you hear, you will forgive us for being so quiet.
So you know how most wedding blogs are born when a bride needs a place to put down her ideas, organize her thoughts , look for inspiration? The bride keeps blogging post wedding because it just such a fun and addictive thing to do.Keyword here is ‘most’. Unlike most wedding blogs, The Unreal Bride wasn’t born like that. We wanted to tell people what we do (engagement sessions, bridal photography etc etc) and thought a blog would be the best way to do that. One thing led to another and before we knew it, we were blogging full time with no wedding on the near horizon. Merrily being non- bridal -wedding bloggers. Till one day one of us decided it was time to get married.
What planning an unreal wedding should’ve meant- lots of research(read more time spent on Pinterest), more wedding planning related posts, weekly updates , sharing inspiration, discussing outfits and basically a lot more blogging!!!! What planning an unreal wedding actually meant- absolutely no time to do the above, trying to balance work and wedding planning, using the fiancé as a punching bag, becoming a gardener, fighting everyone and everything that came in the way, denial, lots of last minute drama and of course being the complete bridezilla. If this is not a valid reason enough for being AWOL, I don’t know what is.
I won’t lie-it was the.most.stressful.time in my entire life but, here it is- the big BUT – but, it led up to the most amazing, wonderful and memorable moments in my life. So, I guess it was all worth it. Maybe. No, no !! I jest- it was completely worth it. My heart has never been full of so much love and life as it was during those five days. I intend on sharing the planning phases and the decision-making stages with all of you-step by step. Before I do that though, I just wanted to say we are still here! Alive and ready to get back to being regular bloggers! Do I hear a Yay ?!?
Since no blog post is really complete without some photos in it, I am attaching an article published today in TimesLife talking about our love for Photo booths. I have got to say- being featured in a national paper has quite a different high as compared to being featured in a local paper. The phone hasn’t stopped buzzing today with calls and messages from all over the country- Bombay, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Nagpur are a few examples!!!Got to admit that we are pretty chuffed! Thank you for the love and we will be back with The Unreal Diaries very soon where you can see where we went right (and wrong) while planning a wedding!
