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]

Eliza! Congrats, you’re getting a FREE website worth $50 and another $50 to put towards invitations!! Send me your email address and I’ll put you in touch with Nearlyweds…..
thanks to everyone who entered! More contests to come this month!
Wedding websites are a great way to get info out to your guests, keep everyone up to date, and for petes sake, save a couple of trees! Nearlyweds is one of the FEW wedsites I would personally use because their templates are so cool and hip. Best part is, if you really love your template, chances are theres an invitation that matches! In fact, they’ve just partnered with Wedding Paper Divas for a line of invites and websites….so in honor of that partnership, Nearlyweds is offering one lucky Brooklyn Bride reader a FREE website (worth $50, thats 2 years online kids!!) and $50 towards its corresponding invitations. All you’ve got to do is comment below with what your favorite website template is, and a randomly selected comment will win! Contest is open until midnite on Sunday, and the winner will be announced Monday. Good luck!!

I think generally, [and this could be a BIG generalization] engaged couples want to do some DIY for their wedding…whether to cut some costs or add a personalized touch to the affair. The DIY Wedding, a book by Kelly Bare, can really help with that! Its got great tips on how to make lots of wedding day items, from custom cufflinks, to your own invitations!
Sooooo, here comes another contest! Leave a comment below with what you’re thinking about DIY-ing for your wedding, or if you’re married, what you’ve already DIY’d, and a randomly selected winner will be announced this Friday for a copy of the book. Good luck!!
