CREATIVE WRITING PROMPT DAYS
September 6 – Fight Procrastination Day
A little on the nose—but this is a great day to share with your audience just why you’re so important! Brides are notorious for procrastination. Give a few tips of how you, the knowledgeable wedding planner, can help fight wedding planning procrastination. Don’t forget to mention how you can be their support system or help with delegating tasks wherever possible. This will take some of the pressure off of the bride and make the process a little less daunting for her. You can offer encouragement and support, which is invaluable during times of procrastination.
September 7 – Beer Lover’s Day
This is a day to zero in on grooms and wedding planning. Write an article that gives insight into the best local brewing company in town. Highlight the top 5 favorites and maybe—if you’re super motivated—discuss what kind of catering options would pair nicely with each bottle. I could see this post doing a number on your SEO (in a very good way). Want to go one step further? Ask the brewmaster for an interview. Then repurpose the content for Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook. Huzzah!
September 10 – International Make-Up Day
Endless possibilities here! You could interview one of your favorite wedding makeup artists. Ask questions that really matter to brides: How much do wedding makeup artists cost? How do I pick a wedding makeup artist? How do you know if your makeup artist is good? Do you tip your makeup artist? Do makeup artists use the same makeup on everyone? These are all great questions to start with when interviewing a makeup artist. You could also give makeup product suggestions or even showcase past brides with a wedding day before-and-after effect so that your audience understands the importance of makeup application.
September 15 – Thank You Day
A bride has a lot of people to thank during her wedding planning process. From her parents to her bridesmaids, there are many people who contribute to making her special day perfect. This is a great day to remind brides to say “thank you.” Write a blog post that showcases a bride who decided to show her gratitude in a unique way, or suggest ways a bride can say thank you to the special people in her life. Whatever method she chooses, expressing gratitude is sure to make everyone feel appreciated.
September 16 – Tattoo Story Day
What better way to celebrate this day than by spotlighting a few of your past brides who have showed off their stunning tattoos on their wedding day? I mean, the wedding day is truly a wonderful opportunity for showing off all sorts of ink. So why not feature a few brides who took full advantage? Maybe you can showcase a bride with a detailed back tattoo in a strapless gown or a bride who had a delicate, small tattoo on her foot that peeked out from her open-toe shoes. Or a bride who wore a sleeveless dress that displayed her colorful arm tattoos perfectly. A bride who shows off her ink on her wedding day is telling the world that she is unique. She is proud of her individuality, and she wants others to see it too. Go ahead and write about it!
Social Media Idea Captions:
This bride had no shame in show-boating her ink on the big day. We love it when they’re not afraid to go all out with a little something extra. She is proud of her tattoos and wants to share them with the world. She is confident and beautiful, and her tattoos are a part of that.
One of the best things about weddings is that they are a celebration of love in all of its forms. Today, we’re excited to showcase a bride who wasn’t afraid to show off her tattoo on her big day. Her ink is a beautiful expression of her personality and we love how she incorporated it into her wedding look. Whether you have a tattoo or not, this bride is a great reminder that your wedding day is a chance to celebrate exactly who you are. Thanks for inspiring us, bride!
September 20 – Wife Appreciation Day
This is a day to honor your past clients! So go ahead and put together a list of some fun local gift ideas. This could include a spa day, a movie night, a special dinner, or even a list of local flower shops. You could have a lot of fun repurposing this content in a new and creative way. For example, you could turn it into a Facebook meme or an Instagram post. Just make sure it’s shareable so wives can share it with their husbands (hint, hint, hint).
September 22 – Girls’ Night In Day
This day was created to encourage women to gather up their besties, unwind, recharge, and catch up by having a relaxing night in. Which makes it the perfect day to share ideas with your audience on how to host a bridesmaids’ night-in. They could spend the night watching wedding movies, drinking wine, doing pedicures, and working on wedding tasks. How fun!

September 25 – Binge Day
Who doesn’t love a good movie binge? Go ahead and create a list of your favorite movies for couples to binge-watch together. You could create a movie marathon theme list that matches the interests of your ideal clients. For instance, if they love comedies, you could put together a list of the funniest movies ever made. Or if they’re into thrillers, you could compile a list of the most suspenseful films of all time. If you want to keep it wedding related, try Princess Bride or Father of the Bride. Just don’t snooze the groom.
September 30 – International Podcast Day
International Podcast Day is the perfect day to share your favorites with your brides! There are so many great wedding planning podcasts out there that it can be tough to choose just one. But on International Podcast Day, you can help your brides discover new ones by sharing your favorites. Wedding planning podcasts are a great way for brides to get inspired, learn new tips and tricks, and hear other brides’ stories. They can also provide fresh ideas, vendor recommendations, and wedding trends. So why not use this day as an opportunity to spread the wedding planning podcast love? Your brides will thank you for it!
Labor Day Weekend
Labor day weekend is often a busy time for weddings. This is the perfect opportunity to give your best advice on how to create a fun-filled Labor Day wedding weekend that both couple and guests can look forward to. You could suggest having a BBQ or picnic lunch on the Saturday before the wedding. This would give everyone a chance to meet and mingle, and it will give the bride a chance to relax before the big day. You could also suggest hosting a pool party on Sunday afternoon. This is a great way to beat the heat and have some fun with friends and family. I recommend pretending that it’s your wedding weekend and write about how you’d plan it out. This could be a valuable piece of content later on down the road—one you could share with a client who ends up getting married Labor Day weekend.
Back to School
Back-to-school season is here, and that means it’s time to celebrate our teachers! This September, let’s take a moment to especially appreciate the hardworking teachers who are also getting married soon. Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, but luckily there are ways to make the process easier. For example, give some tips on how enlisting the help of friends and family members to handle some of the details might help. Or give some tips on how they shouldn’t forget to take some time for themselves in the midst of all the planning—after all, they deserve it! As a wedding planner, you have the power to make a difference and ensure that everything runs smoothly on the big day. Be sure to use a call to action (CTA) at the end of the post that zeros in on how you can make the wedding planning process seamless and stress free.
