Hi everyone! With Anne‘s wedding upstate, and my birthday yesterday, I’m exhausted! So I’m hoping you’ll humor me today by taking this little survey…since last year I’m sure some things have changed with you, and they’ll DEFINITELY be changing here at Brooklyn Bride. I’ll leave the survey up until Wednesday to give everyone a chance to take it.
Click Here to take survey – survey is now closed.
One random survey taker will win a fabulous prize from goosegrease….2 custom dolls! You can see mine above…[how spot on is Chad??!?!] If you’re getting married, its a great chance to get a custom caketopper, or if you’re not married, maybe get you and a friend done as a gift? Whatever you want! Winner will be notified on Thursday. Thanks to Michelle at goosegrease for donating!

Many of our friends and family won’t be able to make it to our wedding next year. I would use the credit to create a gallery of wedding pics to share with those across the country. I would also print little books of wedding photos for those who can’t travel such as my grandmother.
I would make one of the PhotoShow DVDs. I would love to share our proposal story, etc. with our wedding guests, but can’t afford to ask a photographer to do it. This would get my on my way! I could also get some photo thank you cards, to share our amazing wedding photos!
I would use this money to create a beautiful wedding present for my new husband!
I am making a photobook of our college days and giving it to each one of my bridesmaids as a way to ask them to be in my wedding. I made one for my friends wedding last month and she loved it! Memories are the best gift.
This. Wedding. Is. Freaking. Awesome.
We were truly lucky that all the people we worked with were so amazing, professional and friendly. They truly helped us create a day that felt like it was our own. We got married at this fabulous house overlooking the Hudson Valley called Osborn Castle (aka Cat Rock). We had a family style dinner catered by Fresh Company. Our florist, Denise Fasanello made beautiful clusters of flowers and greens along the tables. Our photographer, Jeff Tisman got me (typically camera-shy) to come out of my shell for the day. Both our rabbi and dj are friends. I embroidered the talis for our chuppah. Our invitations were from Bird and Banner. All of the pieces fit into place that day but nothing was as great the joy and the energy of our friends and family. Every day should be so filled with love!
There were so many great real weddings these past 2 weeks…thanks to everyone that sent in!
UPDATE: Brett’s dress, for those of you asking, is by Monique Lhuillier, and is for sale if anyone is interested (size 2)
