Our annual Do Good Together fundraising campaign has begun! During the month of August, when you choose Complete Weddings + Events for DJ, photography, lighting or photo booth, 3% of your purchase goes to an important cause, PLUS you’ll be entered to win FREE videographer services at your wedding or event!
Complete Weddings + Events has been in partnership with Global Partners in Hope (GPiH) for the last six years, and 3% of sales is donated to our Do Good Together initiative every August. This money has helped build 5 clean water wells in remote areas of Mali and Togo, West Africa. Last year alone, we raised $50,000 with the help of Complete staff, customers and wedding partners.
In 2017, we shifted our focus from water wells to raising money to build a medical center in Togo. The money raised was dedicated towards building 2 rooms: The Neonatal and Women’s Recovery room. To accomplish this goal, we invited our wedding partners nationwide to participate and will do the same this year.
This fall, we’re raising the bar and have set a goal to raise $75,000 for the Do Good Together initiative and hope to hit $50,000 of that by the end of August. This year’s money will go towards helping GPiH bring their $3.2 million Medical Center campaign to completion. Once all of the money has been raised, then the construction of the medical center will begin.
In addition to raising money for these campaigns, we have sent a Complete team to Togo the past 4 years. There, our teams met the families, women and children being impacted by these efforts. We personally got to see lives being changed from the wells providing clean water to thousands of people in the area.
Global Partners in Hope, Complete Weddings + Events, and the Wedding Industry will continue working together to provide sustainable growth in the area of Togo, West Africa. Thank you for joining us on this Do Good Together campaign!

Wedding planning can be extremely exhausting and stressful. For months, sometimes years, you put so much effort and time into planning this ONE day. So, you need to make sure you, of all people, have an amazing time on the day of your wedding! Here are four tips that if you can fully execute on your wedding day, we guarantee you’ll enjoy this amazing day like you’ve always imagined.
- Plan a fun, yet relaxing, morning
The morning of your wedding can be one of two things; either extremely fun and exciting, or nerve wracking and stressful. To be sure that your morning can be great, a little planning ahead will go a long way. First off, make sure any potentially stressful activities are taken care of or being taken care of by others. (For example: coffee runs, flower deliveries, luggage drop-offs – all things the bridal party, personal attendants or the parentals could help with!?) Plan on having a low-stress getting ready party or get-together, and just relax. Maybe even be pampered a bit?! It’s your wedding day after all! This should be one of the – if not THE – best days of your life, so let’s not cut corners here!
- Stop to take a breath
Your wedding day can come and go so quickly you might barely get a second to look around and appreciate everything that’s going on during this big day. It’s definitely worth it to take a moment away from the crowd and take it all in. After all, this is the day you’ve been thinking about, talking about, and planning for what seems like an eternity!
It can be easy to forget to any and all meals on your wedding day. You’re going to be busy, so eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner aren’t exactly the first things on your mind, but trust us, you’ll need to eat!! Your wedding day is such a unique event, you’ll want to be sure to have energy and to feel good all day. I mean, who wants to walk down the aisle hangry!?
After all the formalities are said and done and all there’s left to do is dance, then do just that! Take advantage of this huge party you planned for you and your spouse! When looking back on your wedding day years from now, do you think you’ll be disappointed you didn’t spend more time at the bar? Probably not. This is 100% YOUR night, take advantage, and just let loose!
Be proactive in making sure that you do everything you can to have a great wedding day! Then get out there, execute and enjoy – you deserve it!
