SGO Sunday: Bridechilla to the rescue
Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope your weekend was fabulous and you are spending your Sunday doing something that will benefit you in the days to come. Whether that means wedding planning, catching up with old friends, prepping for the holiday season, or simply relaxing and giving your mind a break from reality, it's important to live a life of balance. My Sunday morning was spent meeting with one of my couples at their wedding venue, Lalumondiere Mill & Rivergardens (insert one billion heart-eye emojis here):
Claire and Aaron are so fun to work with not only because of their eye for detail and excitement when it comes to the tiniest moving parts in their October wedding, but more so because of their attitude when it comes to approaching the wedding planning process. They're both overjoyed with their relationship and upcoming celebration, but they've stayed very mellow throughout the process, with a "come what may" attitude that I adore. Claire credits Bridechilla, a fantastic podcast that should be (in my opinion), a sort of Bible for every Bride (and Groom) during their wedding planning process.
Aren't they the cutest!?
After meeting with Claire, Aaron and Claire's mom (who has been a huge part of the planning process and so supportive all along the way), I listened to Bridechilla on my car ride home and immediately remembered why I'm glad to have recommended this podcast to brides in the past. Bridechilla's Founder and Host Aleica tackles a different topic each week: everything from seating arrangements to bridesmaids making the wedding day about them and everything in between. My favorite episode thus far is this one : PRACTICING MINDFULNESS AND SELF-CARE WHILE PLANNING YOUR WEDDING.
Aleica's guest is Tracy, Bridechilla/CPC-I (Clinical professional counselor Intern) from Las Vegas. Without rattling on any longer before you dive into the super helpful blog post and Interview, I'll leave you with this: Anyone can learn a lot from the knowledge Tracy shares about taking care of yourself when you're planning a wedding or going through any stressful time in your life. From Tracy's own experience as a counselor, person who has attended counseling herself and Bride in the midst of wedding planning, you don't even have to be getting married to be reminded of some fine-tuning tips to increase your mindset, confidence and approach to your overall well-being.
