SW Holiday Sale + Ornament Swap

by in Main, News on

Good morning, belles! Hope you had the happiest Thanksgiving and are enjoying a slice of leftover pecan pie with your coffee this morning! We’re ready to welcome the Christmas season with open arms, and we know many of you are out shopping the holiday sales to check off the names on your shopping lists. We wanted to remind you can can stay cozy in your pajamas and visit the Southern Weddings Shop and snag deals up to 50% off!

Hurry on over to pick your favorites, especially if you are shopping for a bride, newlywed, or bridesmaid this holiday season! If I could marry KPW all over again, I would snag that amazing Bride Bundle faster than butter melts on a biscuit. It’s everything a bride-to-be needs to plan for her big day and beyond!

And for readers near and far, I’m excited to announce that we’ll be hosting the annual Southern Weddings Ornament Swap for the eighth year in a row! As someone who loves getting “real” mail, I can personally vouch for how much fun it is to participate. We had an amazing swap last year and would love for y’all to participate this time around.

Here’s how it will work (please read carefully!):

1. By Monday, December 5: Email [email protected] with “2016 Ornament Swap” in the subject line. Include your name, mailing address, email address, website/blog address, and Instagram handle.
2. By Wednesday, December 7: I will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to five people to send ornaments to. Yep, that means you’ll be sending up to five ornaments, and you’ll be receiving up to five in return!
3. By Wednesday, December 14: Be sure to send out your ornaments no later than this date! Then, all that’s left to do is wait for the holiday goodness to roll in.

Your ornaments can be homemade or store-bought, and we suggest that you make them as Southern as possible :)

If you have any questions, leave a comment on this post or email me at [email protected]–we can’t wait to see the ornaments y’all share this year!

    How much should we $ spend per ornament , or is is there a min./max. price range?

  3. avatar Carol reply

    How much should we spend $ for each ornament? Is ther a minimum or maximum?

    • avatar Kristin reply

      Carol, there is no minimum or maximum but I would say nothing too expensive. A lot of people get crafty and make ornaments! Feel free to email me: [email protected] if you have any further questions.

In the Southern Weddings office, we all have different approaches to the holidays.

Emily prefers to give Thanksgiving its due, not decking the halls for Christmas a day sooner than Black Friday. Lisa prefers to get all of her holiday shopping done in November, so she can focus on spending time with loved ones in December. I prefer to celebrate the holidays as soon as possible—they only come once a year, and don’t last that long!

No matter how we approach our yuletide celebrations, we all agree on two things:

1. We love a good deal, but Black Friday sales are much too stressful for us, and we’d prefer to spend that day with our families.
2. When it comes to gift giving, the more meaningful, useful, and beautiful, the better.

I’m guessing y’all would agree on those two points, too! This year, we’re taking them to heart and running our annual holiday sale for an entire WEEK! Today through Monday, November 28, you can take up to 50% off select products in the Southern Weddings Shop.

We even went ahead and combined our most popular items into one AMAZING gift bundle! The bundle is the ultimate gift for any Southern bride, and includes the Southern Weddings Planner, the new Welcome Home Guestbook in natural linen, a Marriage Certificate in gold foil, Southern Weddings Volume 9, The Wedding Day Journal, and a Vows Booklet Set in blue. The whole bundle is valued at over $150, but is on sale for $99 for this week only! Find the Ultimate Southern Bride Bundle here.

Whether you’re searching for a sweet gift for your bridesmaids, the bride in your life, or your favorite newlywed couple, you can find prints, journals, and even our Project Life collection up to 50% off for the next week.

Head to the Southern Weddings Shop to explore all of the deals. No coupon code needed, and no Black Friday rush required :)

Surcee: A Southern term for a little gift given unexpectedly to the ones you love. There are few things more satisfying than finding the perfect gift for someone–especially if you’re anything like me and gifting is one of your love languages! That’s why the Surcees feature in our annual magazine is a favorite all around, both for us to put together and for you to read (or so we hear :)). This year for V8, we did something a little different and invited a few stylish, in-the-know, Southern tastemakers to share their suggestions with us–thanks so much to Mandy Kellogg Rye of Waiting on Martha for helping us out with our surcees for newlyweds page!

P.S. We’re giving away a few of these items–see below for details!

Clockwise from top left: Y’allsome tee, endearment mug, Pleased as Punch paper coasters, Short Stack cookbooks, mini pineapple bowl and gold spoon, gingham sheet set, “Home” embroidery, original salted caramels, monogrammed napkin rings, One Line a Day memory book, Pick a Pickle recipe deck, beeswax celebration candles, commemorative cork holder, wooden pie carrier, gardenia blossoms soap

And now for the giveaway! To enter, leave a comment below and let us know which of the FOLLOWING items you’d like to win:

Y’allsome tee (in medium)
Wooden pie carrier
