JOY! that is what this crazy wedding industry is about - creating joy, celebrating joy, and making memories that bring back joy later on in life. Our team embraces the journey of creating South Sound Wedding and Event Magazine as well as the South Sound Wedding Shows and our joy seeps into everything we present.

This season of planning your big day should be a joyful one. If it isn’t, take a moment to ask why. Is it becoming too stressful? Are the demands and needs of the families becoming too much? Are the pieces not coming together as you had hoped? Then consider how you can whatever is stealing your joy and refocus on why you are getting married and what excites you about your wedding. Like Marie Kondo says in organizing your home, “If it doesn’t

spark joy, get rid of it!” Are 10 bridesmaids stealing your joy? Ditch ’em. It’s your wedding. As a couple, decide what brings you joy and stick with that!


We hope you find joy in the planning of your wedding. Our team is delighted to showcase the absolute best vendors of the south sound region at our annual South Sound Wedding Shows ( so join us! We have filled the pages of the magazine with fabulous vendor highlights and inspiration and will continue to share throughout the year on our website at as well as our social media pages.


Let us help you create joyful memories to take with you in your lifetime of happiness. We wish you joy on your

journey and many blessings to you as you plan your big day!
