Roundup: Popular Mother of the Bride Blog Posts

*While my husband is on vacation this month, I’ll be taking a blogging break. Hope this post provides you with lots of help, Mother of the Bride. You can also use the blog’s search feature as well as the drop down feature in the Archives to find posts you’re interested in. Will be back on August 7th. See you then!

Mother of the Bride, when I take a look at analytics for my blog visitors, I can tell which posts have proven to be most popular—which ones are clicked on most often as a result of Google searches or of blog links I’ve posted on social media. Very interesting to see what MOBs, brides, and others involved in the wedding planning process are seeking information on.

And what better time than a blogging break to share a round-up of some of the posts clicked on the most over the past few weeks, right? I invite you to drop in from time to time this month and spend a few minutes checking out the popular Mother of the Bride Blog posts listed below.

Wedding Planning Tip: Post-Wedding Inventory

Mother of the Bride, one of the smartest things you can do in the days following your daughter’s wedding is to take inventory of all the décor and supplies you have left. If you are planning to save items for another daughter’s wedding or for friends or family members’ use, a list of available items will be a lifesaver.

If you make a detailed list, you won’t have to waste time looking for things and unpacking them in order to get a count. When it comes time for your next daughter’s wedding or when a friend asks to borrow something, you’ll know exactly what you have left and how many of each item. What a huge help and timesaver.

To take inventory, simply make your list as you go through the leftover supplies when you’re preparing to store them after the wedding. When you and your helpers packed up everything as you left the reception, things most likely got disorganized. Instead of storing them like that, group like items together and take a count as you go.

Make note of how many white rose garlands you have left. Jot down the number of crystal candle bases you have available. Write down everything. You never know what might be useful to someone later.

Yes, MOB, there are a few duties to attend to after the wedding and taking inventory is one of them. Give yourself a few days reprieve and then dive in. Don’t neglect it. It will end up being a blessing to you and to others as well.
