Welcome to Brooklyn Bride’s new look! Its been a year in the making, but its finally here, and I couldn’t be happier! In addition to a facelift, we’ve enlarged image sizes and added a gallery feature, so its now infinitely easier to search through your favorite posts topically. The galleries are still a work in progress, but they’ll gradually get filled up as the weeks go by, with current AND new images you haven’t seen on the blog before…its all in an effort to make Brooklyn Bride your go-to place for modern inspiration. So take a look around, and please let me know if there are any glitches you notice. Hope you enjoy!
Huge thanks to Joy Cho of Oh Joy! for the new design, and to Jonathan Poole who has been patiently worked with me on the coding!
[Photogs, if you’ve got some amazing modern wedding content you want included in the galleries, contact me!]
Hey ladies, please email me with your addresses so we can send out your books!
I’ve received some pretty kick-ass card swap cards the past few weeks, from simple to elaborate, and I’ve loved them all! For those of you who participated, I hope you enjoyed making and receiving them! This year I opted to design my card on the computer since I had no time to hand make over 200 cards, and thanks to Bryn of Paperfinger (thanks Bryn!), I had some awesome calligraphy to go with it!
I’ll be taking a little Xmas break from blogging but will return refreshed Jan 3. Enjoy every single moment this holiday, and thanks so much for all your support the past year! See you in 2011!
PS. For those of you in the card swap, if you noticed the little bar code at the back of the postcard, scan it with your computers camera or download a QR reader to your phone and you’ll see the recipe for the recipe swap!
Congrats ladies! Please send me your addresses so we can send your books out! I’m going to keep it a little surprise who gets the autographed copy…
Can you believe its already that time again? I’m having trouble coming to grips that the year is already almost over and that thanksgiving is next week! But maybe a little holiday card swap will make the transition a bit easier…this year we’re going to do the optional recipe swap as well if you’re interested in getting some good cookie or cake recipes to try out.
In true card swap tradition, I asked a talented designer to design the logo for this years card swap, so thank you to Ellie Snow of Mint Design blog and Hello Tenfold!
Here are the rules:
Send an email to me at brooklynbride [at] gmail [dot] com with Holiday Card Swap in the subject line by November 25 [day before Thanksgiving].

Anytown NY 12345
– By December 1, I will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to 5 people to send cards to.
– Your cards must be handmade [think Gocco, glitter, Photoshop, cut + paste, sewing, etc….] Make something that’s easy to do multiples of. You’ll be sending 1 card to each person on your list, and add in a special holiday greeting!
– If you’re feeling EXTRA up to the challenge, include a tried and true holiday cookie recipe! And if you can, please email me the recipe in addition to including it with your card so I can gather them all together in one easy place.
– Send out your cards by December 15 at the latest!
Wait patiently by your mailbox! The swap is open to our international audience, so pay special attention to postage. Please don’t disappoint your partners if you know you won’t be able to send out cards on time, or at all.
