The Sunday R&R

What a week!  As well as running French Wedding Style, this week has mainly been about juggling with my other job (not a full time blogger as yet and also work 28 hours a week), our house renovations continuing and decision making time.

So how do you make decisions?  For your wedding planning and finding a venue, do you follow your head or your heart?  Do you make lists with pros and cons or go with gut instinct?  I would love to know how you are making life and wedding decisions, what has worked and your tips.

Not to mention what a week with fabulous content on French Wedding Style!  Catch up on everything in the Sunday R&R: on Monday we were off to Paris with a Cherry Blossom tree wedding around Notre Dame. With their family in attendance and assistance from Wedding Light Events, the bridal party took full advantage wonderous backdrops in the city of love, all captured by Brant Smith Photography.  See full wedding in Paris.
