How many of you have that one childhood best friend? You know, the one that you’ve known for a good majority of your life. The one that no matter where life takes the two of you (even across the country) you can still meet up again years later and pick up without skipping a beat as if the distance never existed. The one that’s been there through it all, your go-to gal, the Mary-Kate to your Ashley, your teammate, your neighbor, your classmate, your friend. I have one of those and, though she may still run from bees and has a knack for bringing up some of my most embarrassing moments for the world to hear, she’s always going to be that friend. Meet Kelly.
(Kel, I apologize in advance for the awkward adolescence of both of us here… Whoops!)
She and I met ages ago and though life did, indeed, take me across the country, we have entirely too many memories to count. With everything from township sports games and in-class shenanigans to birthday parties, sleepovers and pulling all-nighters, first boyfriends, and so much more, I am happy to say that she and I (along with a great group of wonderful friends) will be embarking on yet another momentous adventure together – her wedding!
Say hello to your newest bridesmaid!
I am so incredibly proud of all that she has accomplished in life since the days of our wee elementary school selves and I cannot wait to stand by her side as she starts a new chapter in her life with amazingly sweet fiancé, Mark.
As happy as this time may be for her, it is also kind of bitter-sweet. Having lost her mother a few years back and, then, her grandmother just prior to getting engaged, the thought of seeing her walk down the aisle without these two amazing women being there is a hard one to grasp. While many brides-to-be have their mothers and grandmothers at their sides through every step of wedding planning, she does not. But she has never, once, drawn pity to herself. Kelly is an incredibly strong woman who helps to bring new life into this world on a daily basis through her work as a maternity nurse. She knows firsthand just how precious life is and that, despite them not being here in person, she has two miraculous guardian angels by her side at all times.
Being a bridesmaid for someone is an incredible honor in and of itself but being her bridesmaid is far greater. The lot of us, including her Maid of Honor who rounds out our little elementary school crew, want to do everything in our power to make this time an absolute dream come true for her. From the engagement party and color schemes to dress fittings and flower choices, we want nothing more than to watch her live out her fairytale with her real-life Prince Charming.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to add a bit of pizzazz to the fun by way of partnering with MY M&M’S on her behalf.
“MY M&M’S offers a unique opportunity to add a level of personalization and customization to chocolate and gifts. MY M&M’S is an exclusive online custom printing solution for personalizing an event or occasion.”
Let’s face it; just about everyone loves a good ol’ handful of chocolate from time to time. However, when trying to figure out an elegant way to tie candies into a classy event such as an engagement party, a bridal shower, or even a wedding, things can get a bit tricky. You want something to match the décor, to compliment the color scheme, to honor the couple. Everyday candy off of a store shelf just isn’t going to cut it. Well, that’s where MY M&M’S comes in.
With MY M&M’S, it’s all about personalization. The same great taste that we all know and love can be customized to go with your event – birthday parties, graduations, baby showers, and yes!, even weddings! By bringing a new level of personalization to one of the world’s greatest chocolate candies, magical moments can now be even more special.
As we gear up for all of the fun that is to come and begin our planning for the lucky bride-to-be’s upcoming bridal shower, we want to make the event as memorable as ever. And, now, with MY M&M’S, we can do exactly that.
The ordering process is quite simple:
- Choose your colors
- Choose and customize your images/text
- Choose your packaging
With twenty-five vibrant colors to choose from, they are sure to match just about any event that you have coming up. For each order, you can print up to two images via photos and/or clipart and pair them with up to two customized messages to help celebrate your special occasion. They offer plenty of options in regard to packaging with, both, customized gift packages and bulk bag options.
You can customize and purchase your very own MY M&M’S directly from their website at www.MYMMS.com. Prices start as low as $6.99.
Since most of our bunch is quite crafty, I opted to go with the latter so that we can soon put them on display as we see fit. Just look at the great goodies that will soon be arriving…
For our MY M&M’S, I chose to put extra meaning behind each image and phrase used. From using images that honor the bride-to-be’s mother and grandmother to the wording that ties in the couple’s love for all things Disney, these MY M&M’S are truly one of a kind. I cannot wait to be able to present them to her as well as all of the family and friends that will surround her on her special day.
Be sure to keep up with the M&M’S brand and their remarkable MY M&M’S collection via social media on their Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest pages. There, you can stay up to date on all of the latest news, new product releases, special promotions, giveaways, sale prices, and more!
Also, be sure to follow along here as I update you on the arrival of my own MY M&M’S and let you know, first hand, just how incredible they actually are. I already know that they’re sure to taste amazing but seeing how wonderful the printing turns out is certainly something that I am quite excited about. After all, who wouldn’t be excited about this lot?
