Hi, loves! While planning your wedding, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of selfishness, always wanting things to go perfectly. A few months ago, I read a blog post by Robyn Bomar of Mix Mingle Glow which focused on how she celebrated her birthday with 38 random acts of kindness. It inspired and reminded me about how simple acts of kindness can impact one person’s day – and how good it feels to do things for others without anything in return. Today we’re tying in the idea of random acts of kindness with a wedding twist: read on to see fifty wedding acts of kindness that can make your wedding more meaningful for all involved. This is a great way to step back and remember why you’re planning your wedding day in the first place and put love back into the equation. Enjoy!
