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!

I can’t believe I haven’t written about the invitations by Wedding Paper Divas yet! They’re an online store that sells any and all of your paper needs [invites, thank yous, rehearsal dinner invites, etc] by many amazing designers. My favorites include ones by Good on Paper and Paper + Cup….but there are seriously so many to choose from so you’ll never have a problem finding something for any taste. The “diva’s” parent company, Tiny Prints, is offering Brooklyn Bride readers a chance to win a $50 gift certificate for purchases at either store! Just leave a comment below with why you’d like to win the certificate, or with what style is your favorite! Winner will be posted on Monday! Good luck! [please no anonymous posts]
