Weekly Round-Up

by in Main on

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! I hope y’all have finished your Christmas shopping, wrapped all the presents, and spread some peace on Earth. If you’ve been a little busy with the holiday excitement or need a pick-me-up from packed malls and crazy traffic, you’ve come to the right place. (P.S. Did anyone know that Tuesday was National Bah Humbug day?)

Before we continue with the Round-Up, take a couple of minutes to look at this super-cool stop motion wedding video from photographers Bayly & Moore in New Zealand. I’ve never seen a stop motion wedding video until Marissa passed this along. I love stop motion because each frame is significant and part of a story. My favorite part? The groom and his groomsmen dancing about 2 minutes in. You know you love fun groomsmen, too.



On to the blog!

This week, Emily’s bunting romance continues with her Handmade Find. We can’t blame her though, because Pretty Swell’s take on bunting is well, pretty swell. (Too corny?) Their fabric flower garlands and cake toppers are too cute and totally customizable. Just look at their color selection!

Katharine’s bling spotlight for the week was inspired by Jessica Simpson’s nontraditional engagement ring. Head to the post to take a look at all the sparkle, Katharine’s favorites, and weigh in on the nontraditional ring.

That’s it for this week! Have a Southern Christmas y’all! What’s that? You want us to sing it to you? Okay…

Weekly Round-Up

Howdy and happy Friday! I’m here to round up another week at Southern Weddings. It’s been one filled with pretty pictures, awesome finds, and if you tuned into our office Christmas party, lots of presents, candy and Christmas finery! A little song for you all…

But take a look at what we wrangled up for the blog this week:

Emily brought even more Southern charm to her blog with her Paper Pick of the Week, YEE-HAW Industries! Emily’s favorites are the giant postcard signs with cute Southern phrases. Perfect as a card or photo prop? Yes, indeed.

You know we love contests and giveaways! A quick rundown of the goods:

Whitney’s love of history also comes with a Bleu Garters giveaway! To celebrate the tradition (and of course receive what we’re giving away!) head to the Bleu Garters shop, pick out your favorite garter and then go here to tell us why you love it and what your dream garter design would be.

We’re giving away color story items from SW V3! The awesomeness is just too much for this post, so go here to see what we’re offering. All you have to do is leave us a comment telling us your favorite feature in V3. Trust me, just looking at the post will make you very happy. Here’s a little preview:

We’ve extended our Mega Photo Contest! It’s just that mega. Send in your fab photos with SW V3 by January 1 to Whitney. We’ll post the finalists on the blog for you to vote on. The winner will receive a $50 ITunes gift card, an ad on the blog, or a Mini Instax camera.

If you’re in the triangle area and you want a break from drinking hot cocoa and wrapping Christmas gifts this weekend (that’s what I’m doing, at least), Tre Bella in Durham is having a big sample sale this Saturday and Sunday. READ: gowns that are 60 to 80 percent off of retail price for designers like Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston, Lela Rose and MORE. Check out Tre Bella’s blog for a preview.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

Get it? Round-up? Because we’re Southern Weddings?

Anyway, happy Friday from our brand new blog, y’all! We have a ton of new features, including personal blogs for Lara, Emily and Katharine! If you need a new SW orientation, you can check out this post…or keep reading this one because we’ll be rounding up the highlights of this week!

Lara rounded up some inspiring photographs that will fill anyone with warm fuzzies and happiness. Go here to feel the love.

Emily featured an adorable Handmade Find from Potter and Butler. Bonus: There’s a giveaway involved! Head to the original post and leave a comment letting us know which of their items you would prefer to win.

Katharine brought a little bling (okay, a lot of bling) to the blog with her post on engagement rings! Not only do you get to see her favorite celebrity e-rings, but you get to see hers. (Side note: kudos to Katharine for still looking cute when she’s freezing.)

We’re giving away customized couple prints from Swiss Cottage Designs! Again, head to the original post and leave a comment with three words that describe you + your sweetie before midnight on Monday.

But wait, there’s more! We’re also giving away the Lo Boheme piece from Green Wedding Shoes’ V3 photoshoot! Leave a comment on this post to enter!

Lara’s heading off to Watercolor for the Making Things Happen Reunion! But wait, there’s more! MTH 2011 is live! Lara will be heading to Tampa, Charlotte, Atlanta and New York City in January to fire you up. They’re looking for one more city to add to the tour, so go to Lara’s blog and leave a comment letting her know where you want to make things happen.

Before we leave you to celebrate the start of the weekend, we have one more giveaway to send your way! This one is from Lauren Kinsey Photography and Shelby Peaden Events. They’re teaming up to bring wedding-awesome to one lucky couple for their 2011 wedding. Want more details? Of course you do! Take a look at Lauren’s blog or Shelby’s blog.

Happy weekend, all!
