The ladies of Mélangerie sent me this wonderfully modern beach invite and program they designed for a couple getting married in St. Maarten (umm, jealous??) I love how they captured the essence of a beach wedding without going overboard.
LANA & STEVE’S BEACH WEDDING PAPERIE
Lana & Steve were married on a beach in St. Maarten during the Spring of 2009. Their invitation was inspired by the sea, but also reflected the couple’s modern taste and the formality of their wedding ceremony. Each wedding event is indicated on a separate card joined together by a coordinating band. When assembled, Lana & Steve’s invitation references the ocean’s tide.
We also created programs fashioned as fans, a sea shell inspired guest book, and wavy, calligraphic escort cards & table numbers to accent the day’s festivities.

There are so many stationery companies out there today, but Bella Figura is really one of my favorites…I love what the company stands for, and how they really embrace new designers. Soooo, I was super happy when they wanted to host a contest here on Brooklyn Bride. One reader will be winning a $100 certificate for anything on the Bella Figura site…it could be invitations, coasters, save the dates, you name it! Just hop over to their site, pick your favorite design, and leave it in the comments below. The winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
[Dewdrop, above, is definitely my favorite, but maybe I’m biased since its inspired by Brooklyn Bride ]

Wow, you guys are such romantics…I’m going to remember all your tips because they’re so great! I’m happy to announce that #32 Megan is the winner of the Jimmyjane blindfold and candle! Congrats Megan…please email me your mailing address!
#32 – Megan
He works nights and I deliver newspapers (at 3AM) and I go to college full time and we own a business together, which when we’re not doing our other jobs– we are doing that. So any time we are together or able to talk to each other is so very special. We do a lot of “free” things, like go to parks, cook (he just watches — we don’t want any fires!), borrow DVD’s from friends to watch (while cuddling of course ), etc. But, my favorite thing of all is listening to him talk– even if we can’t be face-to-face. I love his voice.
I met up with the makers of Whimsy & Spice at a holiday fair at Christmas, and have no idea how I forgot to write about them! [thank goodness for Etsy!] Whimsy & Spice is a delicious company out of Brooklyn that makes sweets all with a dash of spice…chocolate gingersnaps, cardamom marshmallows….they’re all dee-lish, and you can work with them to create favors for your guests, or pop a few cookies into OOT bags. Your guests will love you.
