Southern Weddings

Happy Saturday! Anyone have fun plans for Memorial Day weekend? Early summer is one of the best times of year to really get out and enjoy the South, and between all the SW gals, we’ll be spending the weekend gardening (Lara), sitting on the beach in a monogrammed swimsuit (Kristin), traveling (Emily, Marissa, and Morgan), cooking out (Nicole), and hosting friends (me). It’s gearing up to be a great weekend for all! We’d love to hear about what you’re up to too, but first, let’s take a look back at the week on Southern Weddings.

There is no shortage of errands when it comes to wedding planning! Whether you’re strolling through the flea market in search of the perfect antique silver vases, carrying your past issues of Southern Weddings to a meeting with your planner, or packing up swimsuits for a bachelorette getaway weekend, a roomy, versatile tote is about as necessary to a bride as something old/new/borrowed/blue. That’s why we’re thrilled that Vera Bradley is giving away one of their new extra-large Laser Cut Totes to an SW reader! This chic black and white bag includes a small pocket inside, and at 19 ½” x 13 ¼” x 6 ½”, it has plenty of room to fit everything you could possibly need for vendor meetings, crafting sessions, and everything in between.
