Moms make the best bridesmaids. We’re used to dealing with complicated tasks with plenty of distractions around, which is why we are so good at planning and executing things. We also know the best wedding elements and can help the bride prepare for her special day like no one else.
Whether you are helping a close friend or a sister with her wedding, being able to help the bride realize her dream wedding is the most rewarding part of the experience. To help you excel further in your role as bridesmaid, here are the tools you can use to help you.
WeddingHappy is a comprehensive wedding checklist that helps with planning different kinds of weddings. The app acts as a personal assistant that reminds you of important tasks you still need to complete. With WeddingHappy at your side, you can help the bride plan her special day in a more organized way.
The app itself allows the wedding checklist to be shared with others, including with the groom, the bride’s mother, and other people involved in the planning. There is a reminder for everything so you really don’t need to worry about missing deadlines or forgetting about important parts of the ceremony.
Our Wishing Well
Ourwishingwell.com is another great tool to use when planning a wedding. The site acts as a digital registry. Using this site, you can help the bride decide on her list of items and assist her in completing – and sharing – her digital registry with others.
Since Ourwishingwell.com is a digital registry, sharing the completed registry with others is as easy as forwarding a link via email or messaging apps. Close relatives and valued guests can then open the registry and send gifts to the bride easily.
Our Wishing Well helps make the whole process of creating a registry a lot easier to complete. There is no need to spend hours at a retail store or wasting money trying to get the list completed. In fact, creating a registry can actually be fun.
As the name suggests, myPantone is all about colors. Choosing a color scheme for a wedding may seem like a straightforward task at first, but it gets quite complicated once you start to think about elements of the special day. This is where myPantone comes in handy.
The app can scan any item you like and determine its exact color. It can also generate a color palette based on one or two colors you choose. Helping the bride with her color scheme gets a lot simpler with this tool at your fingertips.
Another complicated challenge to deal with when planning a wedding is organizing invitations. This too is a challenge you can solve using a digital tool, and the tool we’re talking about is Paperless Post. The main feature of Paperless Post is digital invites that you can send via email, but the site also offers prints and physical invites at great prices.
So, are you ready to be a kickass bridesmaid? Now that you have these tools in hand, there is nothing you can’t do for the bride.
Life is full of beautiful moments. Weddings, baby's first birthday, graduations, and other precious milestones. These are events that you want to share with those you love.

Today I took my sweet mother to the mall to TRY to pick out some dresses for the day of my youngest brother, Shaun's upcoming wedding Saturday the 17th. WOW! I am SO unprepared because I cannot find ANYTHING to wear! The color scheme is tangerine, watermelon pink and lime green. I don't look good in any of those colors, so I bought BLACK! I know you aren't supposed to wear black to a wedding, are you? It may be selfish, but I LOVE how I look in black. At least my skirt has the colors in it, and I found it on sale!
Onn the down side, I had to bring my three year old son, Braxton with me (and I did put him in a stroller this time) But......oh, my! He was terrible! He was screaming, howling, saying very naughty phrases out loud. It is IMPOSSIBLE to shop with Braxton. There has never been a kid like him on Earth!!!!! If so, I have NEVER seen one! I love him very much, but OUCH!
Anyway, I have not had the Internet for about a week, so I have been scarce on my blogging.................................................................................But I'll get back into the swing of things yet!
