Meet Jennifer Dene: 20 Fun Facts

20 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I love getting to know random fun facts about people, whether they are friends, clients or folks I follow online. So I thought I would spill the beans on some of the things that inspire me (and potentially annoy my husband!) so that you can get to know me a little better!

Meet Jennifer Dene: Founder of Mind Body Bride

On Music

  • I workout to rap, EDM, and Andrew Lloyd Webber soundtracks. Why not?!
  • I listen to reggae when I am in the kitchen or driving to the beach.
  • My dream is to see Celine Dion in concert. So, if your bachelorette party is in Vegas…
  • I never know the words to any song. But that doesn’t stop me from singing.
  • Our first dance was to a reggae song by The Green. It was individual, upbeat and totally perfect.

On Inspiration

  • My best ideas come when I am out walking, than goodness for the Evernote app.
  • I love the mornings. You will catch me at my best at 6:30am. Don’t expect me to be the life of the party after 9pm.
  • My desk, fridge and dining room table are covered with Post It notes quotes. Bite sized inspiration.
  • I think that we should never stop learning. I always assume that there is another way to do what I do, or think how I think.
  • Pinterest has turned the wedding planning world on it’s head. I loved being able to share my vision with our suppliers.

On Food

  • I would eat avocados at every meal if I could.
  • I like chocolate in the morning and cereal at night*
  • But, I have overcome a pretty stellar cereal addiction (no joke), so I try to minimise nightly forays into brightly coloured boxes!
  • My husband and I bonded over a love of food (and the smell of old books). All the MBB recipes are as delicious as they are healthy.
  • The food at our reception was our number one priority and our chef shined by showcasing local, Australian produce – think caramelised Bangalow pork belly, coconut prawns and macadamia & lemon crumbed haloumi.

On Random Facts

  • I am not ashamed to admit that I adore Nicholas Sparks’ novels.
  • I wanted to become a lawyer when I was younger, simply to own a briefcase.
  • I deplore when people litter from their car windows.
  • If I could be in a movie it would have to be an action flick, with terrific fight scenes.
  • There was a whale migration during our beachfront wedding ceremony. Totally awesome!

Bridal Bootcamp: The Strapless Dress Workout

Today’s wedding workout has three main benefits: to tone your arms, to improve your cardio, and to make you feel like a total badass.

Why Brides Need To Rethink Weight Loss

I don’t want to be another health expert who stands here and says: “living at your ideal weight is easy”. Because for many women the ability to create a body and life that they love seems needlessly complicated, and even unattainable. I get it. For many years I struggled with low self-esteem, eating disorders, and…

Healthy Date Ideas On A Wedding Budget

Stuck in another date rut? Wedding planning killing your love life? I get it. While getting takeout from your local spot and watching movies on Netflix is fun, sometimes you need to bust out of that comfort zone.
