Google+ Southern Weddings V5: Southern Surcees + Giveaway! - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

When it comes to sourcing fun props and additions for the magazine, our Southern Surcees section is definitely one of our favorites to collect. We love pulling our favorite Southern finds, whether they’re doggie bow ties or mini pies! You bet we got our hands on as many monograms as possible (Marissa was dying over them!) and did not scrimp on anything sweet tea-inspired!

P.S. You can buy Southern Weddings V5 right here for more goodies!

Y’all, we could not get over how adorable these custom grits bags were! Do you notice any familiar names on these guys? They’re Lara’s + Emily Ley’s little girl and boy, respectively.

We had a very special guest model our doggie bow ties for this issue. Photographer Nancy Ray’s great dane, Winston looks mighty dapper!

The monogrammed bridesmaid shirts below are one of our favorite additions to the surcees feature. Who doesn’t love a crisp oversized shirt with a bright pink monogram? We about died when the lovely ladies at Shop Memento sent us samples in our own monograms!

Oh my, that’s a lot of Southern goodness. All of these items have made our prop closet look mighty cute, but now it’s time for another V5 giveaway!

Enter to win the item of your choice by commenting below with your favorite find! Is it A) The Butter My Butt and Call Me A Biscuit book, B) the pink bow clutch, C) the engraved iced tea spoons D) The “Bless Your Heart” pendants, the E) Lilly Pulitzer iPhone 4/4S case in Delta Zeta or F) the state tea towels in North Carolina or Dallas, Texas?

Be sure to enter before April 5. Good luck, y’all!

    My favorite find definitely has to be the “Butter My Butt & Call Me a Biscuit” book. I used that saying over Christmas to my future in-laws who are from MD, and they thought I was a crazy southerner & had no idea what I was talking about. I would love to add this book to my collection & learn some more wonderfully southern phrases!

  3. avatar Nancy Ray reply

    Am I allowed to enter, even though I took the photos? If so, I adore the NC Tea Towel! ;)

  4. avatar Carrie reply

    Pink Bow Clutch – The pink in the clutch is one of my wedding colors and would be great to have when I get married on June 8 in Richmond!

  7. avatar Desiree reply

  8. avatar Jess reply

    I love the iced tea spoons!

  9. avatar Madelyn reply

    I am loving the Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit book!

    I’m a South Carolina girl going to a college where not many people are from the South, and over the past four years, I’ve only grown prouder to be a G.R.I.T.S.! I occasionally get strange looks when I say y’all, and I’m known to say “bless your heart” on many occasions. I’d be such a fun time getting to leaf through this book full of more fab Southern phrases!

  10. avatar Katie C. reply

    We’ve just moved from NC to OK and miss the southeast terribly! Having the NC tea towel would be such a sweet reminder of our family back home.

  11. avatar Jessica B reply

    I’m a Southern girl who can’t live without her make-your-teeth-hurt sweet tea, so I’d have to say the engraved iced tea spoons are my absolute fav!!
