Holiday Blogging Break Plus Wedding Planning Help

7980406309_3524c3f3bd*Since the readership of the Mother of the Bride Blog is ever-changing, here is an updated encore post I hope will be helpful to those of you who weren’t MOBs when I originally posted it last December.

Mother of the Bride, I’m taking a holiday blogging break until the first of the year, but I have a little gift for you—a gift of help! Allow me to point you in the right direction to find some great ideas and tips. Maybe at some point over the holidays, you’ll have a little time to wear your MOB hat. The chances may not be good, but you never know!

Three great sources of help are right here on my website. Glance over to the right sidebar and scan down until you see the Favorite Posts section. There you will find links to some important or super-helpful posts here on the Mother of the Bride Blog. Also, if you would like info or help on a certain topic, just use the search feature right under my picture on the header. It will pull up all kinds of help in an instant. You can check my Archives as well (the last item on the right sidebar.) Click on each year and then click on each month. When you click on the month, then you will see a list of the post titles. I bet you will spot some posts that will be especially helpful to you at this stage in your Mother of the Bride journey.

Another great source of helpful ideas can be found on my Pinterest page. I have eighteen wedding-related boards filled with terrific ideas for you. When you go over to check it out, be sure to follow me while you’re there so you won’t miss out on great new pins I post each week.

How’s that for some MOB help this holiday season? Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

Mother of the Bride, Enjoy December!

Mother of the Bride, as December dawns, are you feeling a sense of panic rising? If so, that’s not surprising. The month of December, in all its holiday flurry, is enough spark a sense of panic in any woman, let alone one who is trying to help her daughter plan a wedding.

Why not give yourself (and your daughter!) a break and agree to put as much wedding planning as possible on hold this month? I realize there may be a few things that are time-sensitive that may require your attention, but everything else can wait. Now is the time to enjoy the holidays with your family, and you don’t want to miss opportunities for quiet moments of reflection and worship either.

So Mother of the Bride, enjoy December. I will be posting here the first half of the month, but I’ll be taking a blogging break the last half of the month. You take a break, too—beginning now, okay?!
