The NY Post is looking for local ladies who are recently engaged that opted for a smaller engagement ring, family heirloom or semi-precious stone alternative in effort to be more economically savvy in our crazy economic times. Or maybe, she just thinks big rocks are passe or wanted a colorful stone instead…whatever the case, the Post is looking for you!

I love this little treestump charm from Etsy seller OneElf. You can personalize it with 2 initials, one for you and one for your hunny. I got one for myself because, well, I just couldn’t help myself! Definitely check out some of the other charms she makes…they could make adorable gifts for your flower girls or bridesmaids.

These pics go to show, working balloons, garage doors, and law enforcement into ONE engagement session makes for exceptional photos.

Cara sent me her VERY cool save the dates over the weekend to share with you guys! Here’s what she had to say.
I was really inspired by a bunch of the real save-the-dates that you posted a few months ago. I hadn’t really thought much about mine before that but I realized that we could do something really fun with it and put a bit of our personalities into it, so I wanted to share what we came up with.
The inspiration for our card came from a McKinley-Roosevelt campaign poster from 1899 that we got from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the design work was done by my friend and talented Brooklyn-based graphic designer, Kelli Anderson (www.kellianderson.com).
