Minted, the fabulous online stationery shop, is hosting a new contest that I’m happy to be a part of! They’re looking for 3 couples to be the inspiration for their latest design challenge…the pre-wedding card. This could be anything from an engagement party or bridal shower, to the rehearsal dinner, etc. (Any wedding related party that happens before the wedding). To enter, please send the following information by January 19th to email@example.com:
Bride’s and groom’s names
Location of wedding – venue, city, and state
Date of upcoming wedding
E-mail address where you can be reached
Wedding theme (if you have one)
A photograph (or more if you’d like!) that can help provide a little personality for the designers – this should be a photo of you and your fiancé.
Something special about your relationship – for example, how you met, what makes your relationship special, what you have in common, or what you like doing together
Why you should be one of the 3 couples chosen -be creative, anything goes!
Surprise! After months and months of work, Bklynbrideonline.com is finally up and running, and I can’t wait for you to explore! Let me walk you through some of the new features….
First up and most obvious, the facelift. I felt like the blog was getting a little clogged with links, so with the help of my designers, Lucia and Henny of d*lsh, we cleaned up the front page so that its easier to navigate.
The Vendors have their own page now, with bios, graphics and contact information so its nicer to look at and gives each vendor the attention they deserve. They are all incredibly talented and most importantly, fit within the modern aesthetic that I hope Brooklyn Bride embodies. A great part of the new page is that you can leave a comment for any of the vendors – if you’ve worked with someone and love their work, leave them a testimonial!
Deals and Events also have their own page, so if you’re ever looking for something going on, check there for the latest. There are lots of fun things happening this month in the world of bridal, so definitely check it out.
If you need to contact me with a real wedding or questions, I can still be reached at brooklynbride [at] gmail.com, or you can go to Contact Me and fill out the form.
I’m so excited [and exhausted!] and hope you are too! Take a few minutes to look around and let me know what you think…the old site will eventually be taken down since all the posts have been transferred over here, so please change your bookmarks.
I love so much about this wedding, its hard not to smile! His suit, her hair, the slightly creepy but lovable dolls….perfection!
