Before the wedding, Jane of the Australian magazine, Wedding Style Guide, emailed me about, what else, wedding stuff, and we got to talking about the presence of international wedding magazines over here. I’ve happened to see issues of Wedding Style Guide at local bodega’s and the occasional Barnes and Noble, but for those of you who don’t know the magazine, its incredibly insightful, with great images in a compact size. They’ve got lot of goodies on their website AND their new blog too. Jane was nice enough to send me a bunch of their latest issues [all the way from Australia!] to give away to you guys, so you know the drill….leave a comment below and 5 will be picked at random to receive the 2 issues. Contest ends Friday so get those comments in!

Could it be true? Have I actually stuck with something for an entire year?
My first blog sort of fizzled out, but I’m happy to say that Brooklyn Bride has made it to her 1st birthday! I think the question I get most from people is whether or not I’ll continue the blog after I’m married…my response is always if there is cool stuff to post, I’ll be here posting it! I’ve been obsessed with weddings since I can remember, so I see no point in stopping now. Anyway, I’m having far too much fun meeting people and finding the best there is out there for modern weddings.
Thanks so much for sticking with me this past year…couldn’t have done it without you! As a fun thank you, I’m holding a little contest…leave a comment below with what you like about Brooklyn Bride, what you would change, what you would add or like to see more of, whatever you want! Next Wednesday, I’ll pick a winner to receive a specially designed hairpiece by Myra Kim of Twigs and Honey*! She’s so wonderful and has designed this amazing hairband just for Brooklyn Bride’s birthday! Thanks Myra!
