Recently {Pretties with a side of caffeine, a morning walk + a concert}

Since coming back from vacation last weekend, I've had lots to catch up on in the shop. Luckily, I've had some beautiful and peaceful mornings to work in my craft room with a side of caffeine.
 These pretty bridal caps are going out to Texas for a photo shoot with Marilyn Duvall Photography.

My little love bug and I took a morning stroll through the neighborhood while daddy was at work.

This past Saturday, my mother in love, step father in love, husband and I went to see Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves at the Angels Stadium for the No Shoes Nation Tour. It was SO much fun (after we stopped baking in the sun)! We sang and danced the night away. Then, afterwards we had Lucille's BBQ (YUUMM) at about midnight. No biggie. :)

I started Unit 4 of my Wedding and Event Planning Course a couple days ago. This is the last unit before my virtual internship and I'm pretty excited to start some projects and apply what I've learned so far.
I just finished the lesson about "How to Beat Wedding Stress." With weddings that I've helped with, have coordinated and definitely my own, there are mounds of different stresses that a bride will encounter.
Wedding coordinators are supposed to alleviate as much stress as possible which means, that "stress" is now upon the planner. I know so many people think that being a wedding/event planner sounds like so much fun along with playing with lots of "pretty" details and perks. Although there are rewards, it's a pretty high stress job and knowing how to handle it, is essential
Sometimes, you may even be like a therapist. Brides have a lot on their plate and working side by side with them will bring up issues whether it's related to family, finances, the bridal party, decor decisions, etc. Being the "voice of reason" and/or the "listener" is certainly a part of the job title as well.
Here's to wearing multiple hats! 

Are you a bride or have been a bride? If so, what has caused the most stress and how did you handle it?

Have a beautiful week my friends!
