We’ve been engaged for almost six months, and so far, we’ve learned our fair share about what it takes to plan a wedding! As we near the six month mark, I thought I’d share a piece on what we’ve learned and offer some advice to couples planning a wedding.
Last week, I attended the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism Members ‘Tourism Experiences’ Workshop at Broughton Country Estate. The event brought together some of the best of the best in the tourism industry in the Bay, and it was a great opportunity to meet people who are excited about tourism in our city. The workshop was facilitated by Shaun van Eck a.k.a. The Tourism Coach, and during the workshop, he posed the following question to us: “What attracts visitors to Nelson Mandela Bay?” After a brief discussion, some of the delegates shared what they think attracts holidaymakers to the bay, and it made me realise how much Nelson Mandela Bay natives love their city!
Not too long ago, I wrote a blog post on helpful online wedding planning tools you can use to help you plan your big day, featuring local wedding magazine Majestic Weddings. A few days later, I received an email from Petra Palframan, the editor of Majestic Weddings, thanking me for featuring the magazine in my blog post. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from her, and even more surprised when she asked if we could do a collaboration! I jumped at the opportunity to work with her because I’m a huge fan of her publication, as well as her website and mobile app! A week later, we were sitting in Seattle Coffee, drinking the best coffee in town and discussing our new project – The Blogging Bride Diaries.
Those who know me know that I love online shopping. There is nothing quite like the thrill of a good online sale, skipping queues and the delivery man arriving with your purchase. Online shopping is a must if you’d rather spend your weekend in bed or on the beach than queuing in the shops. I’d like to believe that I am a seasoned online shopper, so I’m going to impart my online shopping knowledge to you.
