The Contest: SWS is now Southern Weddings!  In honor of our name change, we’re giving away 4 $25 iTunes gift cards to the best answers to:  Why do YOU love Southern Weddings? (either actual southern weddings or this blog/magazine) Just leave a comment here with your answer to WIN!

The Winners: SO, we loved so many of these comments that we decided to have TEN winners instead of 4!  The following people will win a $10 iTunes gift certificate

 

 
And the winners are……drum roll…… (in random order)

Amy M: Even though I’m not a "southern bride," (I’m getting married in Boston), I find the most inspiration from your blog! Southern weddings are so special because they reflect the true style of the individuals and their families – and THAT idea definitely crosses the Mason-Dixon line!

Desiree Webb: I love Southern Weddings because the south is about never forgetting where your from. Your wedding should be a reflection of the real you, not the dolled up, ready for photo’s you, but, the one that grew up bare-foot, swinging in the front yard, and laughing ’til you cried. At your wedding, you should share your "favorite things" like mom’s mac’n’cheese, apple pie, and the song that Uncle Sam sings at every reunion. Southern Weddings is like saying, "that’s where I come from…" :)

Kristin @ The Fairmount Bride: Because there is just something about the South. I can’t wait to take all our Northern friends and family, and have them see the beautiful oak trees with moss hanging from the branches, to have everyone that walks by them look them in the eye and say hello, and watch their faces as they realize everyone down there has a drawl. There is something so classic and proper about a southern wedding. And, well, lets be honest, it gives us a great reason to have a big ole’ bbq with ribs and biscuits for our rehearsal dinner!

Leanna: I love Southern Weddings because I honestly feel like a Southern Belle stuck in the Valley in California. Southern Weddings is giving me the inspiration to bring a little southern charm into my west coast ranch style wedding.

HappyAmy: I LOVE the Southern Weddings site because while I’m not from the south in any way, I’ve always loved the style of the south. I remember seeing the Ben Affleck movie "Forces of Nature" and couldn’t get that Savannah wedding out of my head! The moss, the trees, the house-love it all! You provide me with such great images of southern style and I can’t wait to incorporate your ideas into my California wedding!

Catie: I love Southern Weddings because y’all provide some wonderful inspiration and ideas for this California girl to intertwine her Mom’s heritage (Georgia Peach) and fiance’s hometowns (all over the South) into our California-based wedding.I love southern weddings to because of all that the South embodies: that opened-armed welcome home, sincere happiness of coming together, and of course the wonderful food! Congrats Southern Weddings!

 Abby Milz (Bride from our Southern Wedding of the Week 2 weeks ago!):  Because everything is better in the South! We know how to throw a party down south. A good celebration is all about the details and this is the best wedding blog to find inspiration. You search for amazing photographers that shoot amazing weddings which result in your amazing inspiration boards!

Emily:  I love southern weddings (lowercase lowercase) because to me, they epitomize exactly what a wedding should be: a gracious, welcoming celebration of all the people you love — and love itself! Add in great food, great music, and absolutely stunning built-in decor (hello gigantic old trees and stately mansions!) and you’ve got a winning combination. I love Southern Weddings (uppercase uppercase!) because of the absolutely beautiful and original content you publish every day. Your photos are gasp-inducing and always offer stylish wedding inspiration – southern or otherwise. Congratulations on your new name and best of luck from here on out!

KF: Because I prefer red clay to brown dirt, because I wear my Sunday’s best on Sundays AND Saturdays in the Fall (Go Dawgs!), because I understand the importance of William Faulkner yet appreciate the 24-hour availability of Waffle House, because I know this to be true: summer evenings in the South are sweet but even sweeter with mint juleps, while magnolias are beautiful there is nothing like honeysuckles, and the South will always welcome you home! Southern Weddings understands my point-of-view and they represent it. Simple, Stylish, and Strong…Southern Weddings.

Kelle: When you start with Southern Weddings, you end up with ceremony that celebrates your roots. This magazine brings every Southern gal’s dream wedding to life with hypnotizing photo montages and thoughtful articles. It’s just the thing to read while waiting for your sweet tea to cool.

Winners:  Email me [lara at swsmag dot com] to let me know the email address where you would like the gift card to be sent (we’re saving paper by emailing them) and you will have some new tunes in your inbox!

This has been my favorite contest so far because it showed all of us what we had always hoped for–brides from all over the country love southern weddings and no matter where they are planning their weddings, they want to incorporate that oh-so-southern goodness into their big day!  Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to tell us what you think of southern weddings and Southern Weddings.  We are so grateful for the outpouring of support and kind words.  Have a fabulous week filled with sweet tea, nights on the front porch with family, and–no matter where you are–southern warmth in your heart~   Happy planning!

  13. avatar papercupp reply

    This name is a very good choice – Southern Weddings – clean and simple. When my client got married she did it in Southern Comfort Style but we celebrated her wedding in Southern Comfort. the same way your magazine is about Southern Wedding Style – you celebrate Southern Weddings. The word style was redundant – I like this a lot! Great change!!! ; )

    I love Southern Weddings because they always seem to find the coolest wedding to feature with rockin’ details and personality. They not only feature, they give us a peak into the wedding day by giving us a story of how everything unfolded. How can you not love Southern Weddings?!

    As per the table decorations. Why not use various sizes of bowls with crystal cut style look. Use a large ones as a center pieces filled with flowers. Yet use matching smaller ones as salad dishes. Or fill with party favors for everyone to take something home.

    OOh– this is so exciting..Are we invited to these weddings!!

  7. avatar Lauren S. reply

    For Carrie’s evening wedding, the event would be held at 620 Loft and Garden on the top of Rockefeller Plaza. Invitations, place cards, and all paper products would be from Hello! Lucky designs. These letterpress items would feature a peacock feather motif and copperplate type. Overlooking St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the outdoor garden is well manicured and is accompanied by a lovely white interior space. Inside the space there would be lots of golden yellow lighting. The primary colors for the décor are aubergine, teal, and peacock green. The head table would be covered in a lush purple feather cloth over a patina-green lamour from BBJ linens. Other guest tables would have Eggplant lamour cloths. Centerpieces would be antique birdcages filled with pillar candles and accented with teal and canary-hued florals. Accents of polished and patina-covered copper would appear in the china and additional candleholders around the room. Sheer copper-hued fabric would be draped around the windows and finished with jewel-toned crystal bead tie-backs. There would be large, clear glass bulbs strung across the doorway to the garden. Outside would be copper lanterns decorated with jewel-toned crystals. There will be tented seating areas featuring the jewel colors. Seating consists of banquettes covered in pillows. These pillows will be both solid in color with copper cording and printed in a Moroccan style. The tables in these areas would be dark mahogany and mirror topped. To decorate said tables, there will be clusters of richly hued pillar candles giving off a soft glow. For entertainment there will be an orchestra playing big-band music. Carrie will wear a platinum Jenny Lee gown and teal Manolo’s. She would not wear a necklace, but would wear diamond earrings in the shape of a flower. Her hair is up in an oversized bun accented with a gray feather. Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha will wear a dress of their choice in a jewel tone. The flowers for the bouquet would all be in shades of deep purple and blue (hellebores, clematis, gladiolus, forget-me-nots, sweet peas, and violets). Her round bouquet would be tied with teal ribbon. The guests will dine on French cusine (Muscles, Coq Au Vin, Steak au poivre) and drink wine. Other bar-options will include bellinis, martinis, and a signature fresh blackberry gin fizz. The Italian cream cake will be covered in ivory butter cream. The cake will be accented with copper wire curls strung with aubergine, teal, and peacock green crystals. There will be an open bar, culminating with a champagne toast in the garden at midnight. Carrie and Big will make their get-away in Big’s famous Town Car. Guests will receive books of well-known love poems as favors, stuffed with a sterling silver bookmark.

    Two words to describe the Carries wedding would be simple yet elegant. Carrie would be married on a warm summer evening in New York City, possibly at Plaza Hotel. Surrounded by only her dearest friends and closest family. Carrie would want her girls to be beautiful and relaxed in their attire they would get to choose anything from Chanel. The sweet and intimate ceremony would be followed by a dinner by candlelight. The table décor would just be simple and beautiful candles. The main color of the event would have to be Royal blue to match her perfect shoes by Manolo Blahnik, but of course a girl can’t go with out pink! She would splash on the very smooth and creamy Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. Everything she would need for the special event would fit perfectly into He Miu Miu Matelasse luxe hobo in dusty rose. The sounds that would accompany them would be Michael Buble, his romantic sound would be perfect for this chic and sophisticated night. Cosmopolitans would be complemented French cuisine and the night would finish with champagne and a delicate but tasty cupcake. To remember this forever they would give their guests a bottle of bubbly with bottle designed by them personally. That is how Carrie and Big would live happily ever after.

  10. avatar Kelle reply

    Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding would not be planned by a wedding consultant.I’m sure her apartment is never seen the cover of any bride-to-be manual.Her wedding day would evolve out of daily inspiration, just like her editorials. Carrie would wake up one morning clueless about the day ahead of her. After a breakfast of day old Chinese food, the phone rings and it’s Samantha. She’s ranting and raving about her discovery of some new club on the upper East side. Charlotte rings in with some unrecognizable chatter regarding museum interns who don’t know how to use a level to hang paintings. After all that "girl talk", Carrie remembers that she’s meeting Miranda for lunch in Central Park.While waiting at a bench by the statue of the Dancing Maidens, Big shows up. He sits as they make fun of an older couple being married by what looks to be a judge. Playfully, Carrie asks Big what his dream wedding would be, since he’s had so much practice. Big admits that he never thought about it.He never thinks ahead about romantic things he tells her. As the bride and groom at the statue kiss, Big grabs Carrie’s hand and walks over to the judge. Next thing Carrie knows, she’s saying "I do" in Central Park.Big’s laying a big one on her when Samantha walks up, late and cranky. She’s pregnant.No bridesmaids, no favors. Just a beautiful view of Central Park in the Fall.Some tourists stop to take the only snapshots they have to remember the day. But they speak no English so Carrie and Big are left with no photos.

  11. avatar Andrea reply

    If I were designing Carrie’s wedding, the theme would be "I Love New York". Carrie is such a big fan of New York that her favorite city in the world has to be represented at the reception with beautiful black and white pics of New York framed on the walls (Time Square, Lady Liberty, and Central Park would be among the famous New York cites pictured). And Carrie would have wedding favors like little crystal empire state buildings or red apple candles. Because Carrie is such a chic city gal, I see her wedding colors being crisp, elegant black and white along with big apple red and touches of sassy sex and the city pink! Since Carrie is such a fashionista, the bridesmaids dresses have to be classic little black dresses — a sweet, full skirted one for Charlotte, a tight, slinky one for Samantha, and a stand out black dress with roses on it for Miranda because she would be the maid of honor. All the girls would probably wear a red apple necklace (like the one Carrie wore in an episode of sex and the city) which Carrie would give to them as a thank you for being part of the wedding party. I see Carrie in a gorgeous black and white wedding dress like the gown Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina and of course Carrie’s fave Manolo Blahniks in black to match. She should have a touch of color to her veil though by attaching it to a lovely vintage black hat with pink flowers and feathers. Since Carrie is marrying Mr. Big you know she’s gonna get a huge rock from him for her engagement ring! To match the bling on her hand Carrie will probably want a gorgeous necklace, maybe like the big beautiful pearl and diamond necklace that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffanys — A sure favorite movie of Carrie’s since its set in New York and the fashion is fab! The flowers of course will be very chic red and black with some sort of bling like the centerpeices made by The Flower Girl. And Carrie’s invitations would probably be something like Joceybella’s elegant black and white dahlia invitations. The cake would probably be in black and a light pink with a floral sort of design on it to match the invitations. The tables would be covered in black and white fabric with beautiful black and white china and there would be red chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The whole thing would take place somewhere ritzy and very New York like the Plaza and it would be an event to remember!

So, I avoided the lines and went to AT&T at 3pm to place an order for the new iPhone 3G.  I’m happy to wait a week considering all the craziness today….  Check this story out!

“I started the upgrade and it failed, so now my iBrick is stuck in “dial emergency number” mode when I turn it on. I get the same connection error in iTunes as listed above. My wedding is tomorrow and there are people flying in from around the world, they all have my wireless number which will go straight to voicemail without me knowing it or that a call was received. Steve Jobs, will you be my best man?”

I hope this bride has a smooth weekend sans iPhone service.  

This Apple gadget was the talk of the tweets on Twitter today!  Wedding pros were all abuzz over this morning’s 3G launch.  It has certainly aided many of us in the wedding biz…. and a few geeky grooms, too!  Check out this iProposal and this groom’s iVows.  Any of you fabulous photographers have iPhone wedding pics?  Get ready… we’re having an photo contest soon.  Have a great weekend!

    Hrm. Not to be judgmental at all – but I’m not sure I would have done a major software upgrade the night before my wedding. Good call on waiting a week! ;)

    I got my lovely iPhone bright and early Friday morning- couldn’t be happier with it so far!! I’m betting it will come in handy as I plan my wedding- with all the fun new apps out, there has to be some kind of budgeter… Someone needs to get on a wedding budgeter app, stat!

    Surprisingly we had no problems at all with our iPhone at the wedding this weekend or the day we got it. Perhaps it was because I was fifth in line? I’m such a dork!!! -David
