There are so many beautiful brides to be for the 2016 wedding season!! Some of you became engaged over the holidays and many of you have been planning for months!! I love weddings, I whole heartedly believe in the beauty of marriage, and I am beyond excited for all of you to experience this joyful season of life!!
Wedding planning is oh so much fun, but it is also a lot of work!! I started thinking a few months ago of a way to help not only my upcoming #BridesOfAHP, but all upcoming brides during this special time of being engaged! Since blogging has been such a foundation for my business (and something that I absolutely love doing), I decided to create a blog series specifically for future brides!! My hopes were to put together a series full of love, encouragement, and tips for future brides!!
I am so excited to announce AHP’s “For The Blushing Bride” series!! This series will run the entire month of January and beginning of February. Every Tuesday, there will be another guest blogger sharing their expertise in the wedding industry! I am so blessed to have these lovely ladies contributing to this blog and cannot wait for y’all to connect with them! Below you will find an introduction of each gest blogger, as well as their blog title and the date that they will be featured!!
I cannot wait to have you all follow along with this series! If you are a bride to be- Congratulations, we are so excited for you! If you know someone that is engaged- we would be so happy to welcome those brides so spread the word!
