Stress Free Planning Must Haves from Color Pop Events

Welcome to our new series where top wedding pros share their favorite handmade picks for your wedding day from Etsy! This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a very small commission in sales that supports my family and lets me continue to share gorgeous weddings and inspiration with you!

My picks all have the theme of mindfulness and stress relief. My book is very much about how to take a mindful and thoughtful approach to the wedding planning process, so I wanted to highlight items that can support that type of approach. And of course everything’s colorful because it wouldn’t be a Color Pop pick without that element.

There’s a gorgeous journal and some colorful pens in order to journal and answer the prompts in the book that I suggest completing at different points in the planning process. I’ve included suggestions for daily mindfulness and affirmation cards that someone can use to start each day, center themselves, and bring a positive mindset to the day. And I also wanted to highlight some other stress relief tools, like a scented candle, bath bomb, stress relief toy, a mug for some calming tea, and some crystals.
