Even though we weren't part of Bridget and Sonya's original blogging workshop, we were keen to be part of a local 30 day challenge and lucky enough that it was opened to the public (even if only a few of us actually did it!).
I started blogging in 2010, and have always just written whatever tickles my fancy. Initially it was challenging to write to specific topics, especially with some of the subjects - too hard even for the hosts ;), but by the end I was looking forward to seeing what was up for the day.
I'm stoked to have completed all 30 days, a big achievement with a lot of other things to juggle, and some of the topics came with very tight deadlines.
A big part of our job is relieving stress! Planning an event (especially a wedding!) is stressful and one call to us can take care of your music, sound system, and lighting. We program the music, set up on the day, and collect it all after the wedding - stress free!
If you're looking to relieve more wedding stress, here are some tips:
- Remember to eat. It will be a busy day and it can be easy to forget simple things like food and drink for you!
- Plan and book as much as you can, as soon as you can. We already have bookings into 2014, and have had bookings two years out.
- Put at least as much energy into your relationship as your wedding. It's easy to be excited about the big day, but it's actually about all of the days after that :)

We'd like to change location! We're getting too big for our current space, so we're on the look out for the perfect workshop to move our operations. We're looking forward to it! A sparkly new workshop with plenty of room for the 0800 crew, jukeboxes, tools, and the occasional project car :)
