Monday Morning Mentions {Vol. 8}

Goooooood Morning!! It’s been a while, right? I have some exciting things to share with you all, so do scroll, read, review & enjoy. Happy Monday!

#1 – In lieu of Mother’s Day yesterday, I stumbled upon this beautiful article that I had to share. It’s titled “An Open Letter to My Future Daughter: 10 Things I Will Tell [Her] about Love & Marriage”. It’s a great read and includes interesting tidbits such as “If he loves you he’ll want the best for you – even if it means he loses.” Powerful words right? Click the link to read more. I think you’ll enjoy and possibly share with your daughter(s)!

#2 – I’m so excited to also share this next piece of information. Earlier this month, I received news that I’d won a local radio contest for women that give back to the community. If you live in the DMV area, you are probably familiar with Majic 102.3. I was recently named Phenomenal Woman of the Month, for the month of May and will be going into the station this week for an interview. I’ll be sure to update you on when the interview airs. For now, check out the feature on their website.

#3 –   In wedding design news – have you heard about the new interactive wedding save-the-dates? Apparently, they are one of the top trends for 2012. How cute is this ” lottery scratch-off” save-the-date. I’ve seen crossword puzzles, tic tac toe and other similar activities on wedding announcements. You can find more interactive invite ideas on Check it out!

#4 – Do you want more of YesWeWed? Do you wish we’d publish posts more frequently? Well, you may soon be getting just that. I’m currently looking for support to help me grow the blog. If you know a dynamic college student that may be interested in joining the YesWeWed team please have them check out the ad. I’ve received some great applications already but wanted to make sure I shared this opportunity with readers as well.  ♥

#5 – Last but certainly not least, I have a video feature for you. This fairy-tale wedding took place in Paris, France and is nothing less than amazing. The bride is a famous actress in Nigeria and the groom is an international media consultant. Relish in the beauty of their wedding day as you enjoy the video!

Until next time,
