Hey friends! It’s time for our weekly “hump-day Update” that we have decided to start until our May 1st launch. It’s going to be so hard to save some of the beauty we’ve collected until then, but we know that it will be worth the wait, and a great way to celebrate the start of wedding season!
This is the start of a dream for MiMi and I. We are avid wedding blog readers and lovers of all things unique, new, fun, and beautiful in the wedding industry. After all, as we’ve mentioned before, we work in the industry ourselves. One day we were having a meeting at my house and realized we both wanted to have a blog of our own. The only problem was we felt if we wanted to do it right we couldn’t do it alone. To make a long story short, we decided TOGETHER we could make it something truly special, and so that’s what we decided to do.
I let my husband in on this right away, and he has been completely supportive of this new adventure I’ve decided to take on with my partner in crime. With this said, my hubs has a gift when it comes to making me think things through. He’s a question person. It’s actually one of the many things I love about him. He’s the guy you want with you when you’re hanging out with new friends because there are never going to be any crazy awkward silences. Anyway, we were sitting at the kitchen table, drinking some wine, and having our nightly kitchen talk between kid interruptions…and he asks me…”So what is your mission statement?” “Why exactly are you guys doing this?” Again, I have to remind you…he totally supports this. He just really wanted me to think about our objectives and not lose sight of them. He’s pretty awesome like that.
My response was something like this…
We want to do this to help brides find their own style! We want to show them beautiful and unique things so they can get an idea of what THEY really want for their wedding day. We want them to know that if there is something they really want to have on the most important day of their life, they should have it! It’s a once in a life time event, and it’s THEIR event. Not their mother-in-laws. Not even their own mothers. (And even though we love and respect those ladies)… If a bride wants to have a canary yellow veil, that’s what she should have! (Sorry “Aunt Margaret”.)
We also want to give them information. We want to give them DIY ideas that can save them money, general information on special products that they may not even know existed, and most importantly we want to inspire them.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want you to know your dream day is attainable and it will be beautiful no matter how big or how small. We want to celebrate your wedding day no matter what the style…Daisies in glass on a rustic backyard table, A courthouse wedding with brunch to follow, or a glam wedding so great there’s no photos without bling in them. We LOVE it all. We celebrate it all. And we are so incredibly excited to share it with you.
Chrissy and MiMi
