For a while it has been on my heart to re-brand Mr. & Mrs. to include more focus on the importance of not only celebrating the wedding day, but also having a meaningful wedding planning experience. I will be sharing the visual side of this change later this week (you can already see it taking shape on the website!), but today I want to chat about one addition that came from this new mindset.
As a wedding planner I was seeing too many brides getting swept up in the stress and overwhelm of having the perfect wedding all while maintaining an unhealthy lifestyle both physically and emotionally. They were not only pushing their friends and family away, but their fiancés as well. Running on no sleep, ditching personal care, and harboring a deep level comparison – it was heartbreaking.
Thus was born the idea of Abundant Engagements. My lovelies, I am so excited about this! In total there will be three components. Every month we will be rolling out a new topic to think on that I see as a sticking point during an engagement. There will be a vendor collaboration with someone whose business values pair with the theme of the month, and lastly there will be a challenge to complete in conjunction with the theme. My hope is to provide an opportunity for a dialogue regarding these pressure areas of wedding planning and to connect brides through the experience. The challenges will be an easy task that will fill up your heart with the possibly winning a little prize. At the start of the month the topic will be announced and together we will be able to have a conversation together!
So without further ado, let’s chat about April! This month includes a partnership with an amazing biz owner and topic I am really excited about. I would love to have you join the party, so be sure to catch the announcement and conversation with me over on Instagram tomorrow, April 11th at 9am CST!
