On the 11th Day of Joy – Be You
It’s Christmas eve and our 11th Day of Joy! If your merry making has begun, I wish you lots of fun. But, don’t forget our gift today!
On the eleventh day of Christmas, Mango Muse Events gave to me…
The Gift of You
Here’s the thing, there are so many ways to bring joy to your wedding planning, but one of the best ways is just being you. It’s so easy to get swept up in Pinterest, Instagram and all the weddings blogs or what your mother/sister/best friend is telling you to do. But, wedding planing is way more joyful when you are doing it your way and your wedding will be way more joyful if it’s what you want. If you noticed, a bunch of our gifts in the 12 Days of Joy were about finding ways to bring you into the planning (color, song, gifts, flowers, drinks, photos) because when it’s something you like or something that brings a smile to your face, that is joyful. It’s going to make you happy which makes everything else happy.
Your wedding is about you and your partner, so keep it that way. I’m not saying to ignore your guests, but you don’t have to pick something just because it’s trendy, or it matches or is what someone tells you to do. You are special and the two of you together is even more so. Celebrate that and all the things that make up who you are separately and together. Do your wedding your way, in whatever way that means for you and I promise there will be joy all around.
