Here’s my obligatory PLEASE VOTE FOR MY SXSW PANEL link!
I think back to 2007 very fondly. Not only did I finish my master’s degree, but I got married and found yoga. I’ve been reminiscing a lot about all the ups and downs of that year as I talk to people about my thesis work that I want to present at SXSW.
This was a great infographic by Wedding Paper Divas I found with fun stats about wedding planning. I loved the section about how much time brides spend planning and how 74% have thought, “Let’s just elope.” It’s such a stressful experience for a day that’s supposed to be so fun and joyful.
I think all the women I met through The Knot (whether it was for my thesis research or when I was asking silly questions for my own wedding) can all agree that getting hitched at the drive-thru chapel in Vegas would’ve saved a lot of tears! But we made friends in the process as we went through the details and the pageantry and prepared for the big day.
