Y’all, tell me, what is better than the weekend? Few things compare, except say, the weekend + close friends + ice cream + movies. That’s a winning combination! You know what I’ll be doing tomorrow and Sunday. Before you take off with your fantastic plans, let’s round-up the week!
We’ve had sooo many great things appear on the blog this week! First up was one of our favorites, the Southern Bride of the Month! Bride-to-be, Lauren met her fiance in kindergarten and is now planning her dream Texas wedding! (Really, y’all, she’s been collecting inspiration since high school!)
To hold us all over until V4 hits the stands, Marissa shared her favorite feature from V3, Something Blue by Jose Villa. She wanted to live in the blue and white gorgeousness from these spreads! Take a look and you’ll understand why.
Y’all know the South is steeped in tradition, so over the next few months, Marissa is going to give us all a history lesson! (We will admit, there are a few that we’re still curious about.) First up? The groom’s cake! Go to the original post to learn all about this yummy tradition.
Emily’s engaged! I can’t say it enough, I’m so excited! A few weeks ago, we asked you for your opinion on engagement rings. Now, Emily’s back to share her engagement story and ring hunt! Read all about it here.
Vendors, we issued you our first “Ultimate Southern” challenge this week! We want to know your most creative ideas for escort cards! We hope that brides everywhere will be executing these ideas soon enough! Go to the original post to get more details on how to submit.
Calling all Southern bride bloggers! We’re setting up a new page on the Southern Weddings blog for all you fellow bloggers. Tell us a little more about yourself and find out how to get on the page here!
We know there’s a ton to think about and do when you’re planning a wedding. I hope I can make it a little bit easier with my new How-To column! Read up on how to send your invitations here, where I gave you the basics on calligraphy, envelopes, mailing and stamps!
We know you can’t resist a photo booth! This week’s giveaway is going to help you make those silly photos even more fun! Say Cheese! Paper Props are the perfect addition to your wedding’s photo booth and you could win a specially made kit for Southern Weddings! Go to the original post to enter.
Something Borrowed NY is launching their site today! Something Borrowed is an online wedding shop that rents designer bridal accessories to brides at a fraction of the retail price. They’ve partnered with top designers to curate a special collection of veils, tiaras, headpieces and jewelry to “frost yourself” with for your special day. Any minor damages are covered (please, no red velvet cake fights!) and after you’re done, you just ship it back to them and they’ll clean and preserve it for the next savvy bride! Head to their new site www.somethingborrowedny.com to take a look around!
Vendors, did you hear the good news?? We’re adding more pages to V4 which means we’re extending our ad deadline so you can help us fill up the pages! Just fill out this little “get to know you” form and Whitney will set you up for V4 awesomesauce!
