Congrats, you're engaged!
It's so exciting ... and also overwhelming. There's so much to do, so much to think about, and so many people to try to make happy. If your head is spinning, don't worry ... that feeling is totally normal!
Most brides and grooms have never planned a large scale event or party before, but we're expected to be able to throw together a wedding like it's not a big deal. But it IS a big deal! IT'S A SUPER BIG DEAL!
I remember the stress of wedding planning and the feeling of being completely lost, especially because I was planning a "destination wedding" at a magical theme park. I spent hundreds of dollars on books and binders and magazines, and spent hours pouring through everything, trying to put a plan together. But what I really wished was for someone to come along and tell me, "Here's what you do first," and "Now do this next." I needed a plan!
Since my time with planning a wedding, I've spoken with countless brides who expressed the same feeling of overwhelm and frustration, which is why I created this course. This course is especially for brides and grooms who are just recently engaged and don't know where to start with wedding planning. I want to help you!
In this course I provide videos, printables, checklists, and additional resources to help guide you through the wild world of wedding planning. This course is like your favorite wedding blogs, magazines, books, and TV shows all rolled into one, but you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars and dozens of hours trying to piece it all together.
"Practically Perfect Wedding Planning is the no nonsense approach through the essential parts of event planning from choosing a date to the small details that may be overlooked when overwhelmed by putting on such a big event. If you're struggling or don't even know where to begin, this easy to follow course will take the guess work out of wedding planning so you can fast forward to 'happily ever after.'"
This Fairy Tale Life
Mindy started her blog in 2011 to document her wedding and the planning process. Frustrated with the lack of information about weddings at Disneyland on the Internet, she started sharing what she learned hoping to help others. Several years later she is known as a Disneyland expert in the Disney weddings community, and also runs the biggest community dedicated to Disneyland weddings online. The best part about blogging and social media is connecting with like-minded people all over the world, people you might not otherwise ever meet. It has been an honor to help so many people plan their weddings.
With over five years of blogging and community-building experience, Mindy launched Joy Social in 2015 to help wedding professionals market to brides and grooms via the ever-changing and fast paced platforms of social media. Mindy offers one-on-one consulting sessions in-person or via Skype, as well as hosting the occasional meet-up and free webinars. Before starting Joy Social, Mindy worked as a Virtual Assistant and Social Media Consultant specializing in the wedding industry.
Mindy lives in Los Angeles, CA with her writer husband and destructive but oh-so-adorable cat. She loves Disneyland, cupcakes, Hello Kitty, white wine, wine in general, and yoga.
"Mindy's course was extremely helpful and full of resources and information on how to calculate a budget. It was very well rounded and a great step-by-step guide on planning a wedding on any budget. Definitely check this out if you feel lost in the planning process!"
"This course is a great choice for anyone who has recently gotten engaged and feels confused or lost in wedding planning. I would also recommend it for anyone who doesn't have much patience to read a book but does well with video learning. Mindy is relatable and down to earth, and truly wants you to have the best wedding at a budget you can afford!"
