Your Daughter's Milestone in Dresses

I've been mentioning in my blogs a lot about preserving memorabilia as a way to keep memories alive through the years. It may seem like a lot of trouble to keep all your baby’s firsts, but nothing can match the warmth you will feel when you look at these a few years from now. Their first tooth, a lock of hair, baby shoes, Christening gowns, etc., are all guaranteed to bring back many memories that will forever enshrine those special moments time.

I even keep photos of my daughter in her beautiful dresses as part of our trip down to memory lane. The actual dresses are tucked safely in a memory box. Here is what I have managed to keep all these years.

Free Online Tools for Your Wedding

The secret to planning my wedding years ago was to make full use of bridal magazines and free wedding checklists. I bought a binder to keep everything organized and to keep track of things that have been done and haven’t been done like the guest list, fitting for the bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses, and dress rehearsals. I’d also do random cutouts of pictures I like to show my supplier. Just think, I had to bring that every time I went to talk to my former fiance, now husband, or the caterer, seamstress, or florist. Boy, those were the days.

Today, we have android phones and laptops. Indeed, technology has made it easier to plan a wedding. Here are just a few free online tools to help a soon to be married couple with their wedding. And because they are free, this will make the happy couple truly happy.
