As we all know, planning a wedding can get slightly stressful and somewhat overwhelming at times. When things get a bit crazy in our lives, it can be quite beneficial to our state-of-mind to have a reminder of the little things that make us happy each day.
I saw the idea for a ‘What Made Me Happy Today’ book on Kata Golda’s blog and thought it would be a perfect little venture to help a bride/groom keep their sanity while planning their wedding! While it will serve as a place to record the happy things, it will also be a great item to hold on to and look back on in the years to come to remember what made you happy during your engagement and wedding planning adventures.
A book like this is a place for a quick glance at the things that make you smile. With your wedding planning underway in addition to your normal routine … you’re a very busy person! Rather than sitting down and writing a journal entry that’s a page or two long to remember it all, you can use this book to jot down the happy memories that you want to hold on to. Your book can simply be a small notebook that you carry around with you. However, if you’re into DIY projects … here are some great ideas for dressing up or making your own book!

Now you’re ready to go! Record the things that make you happy each day :) It can be a thought, word, song, person, experience etc. It may be something to do with your wedding , or something completely unrelated. You could even add pictures or snippets from your day – almost like a mini scrap book! Let go of your wedding planning stress and have fun documenting the little things during your engagement that make you happy!
