Macy’s Wedding shop & giveaway!

You may know Macy’s mostly for its great wedding registry, but you may not be as familiar with the Wedding Shop on Macys.com! It’s your one-stop shop for outfitting your entire wedding party, from jewelry to shoes to bridesmaids dresses, tuxedos and even gifts!  All in a range of colors & price points, you’ll be buying off the rack vs having to order directly through a designer, so it’s super easy and will save you lots of time.

There is also a fun tool called “My Bridal Party” which allows you to pull together head-to-toe looks that you can share with your bridal party, who can then comment on & rate their favorite look.  It makes it the best way to communicate your vision with your family and friends, and makes it incredibly easy to buy the entire look in one shot.

What’s better is that when you sign up for Macy’s Registry Star Rewards Program, you can earn Rewards when you shop from most areas of the Wedding Shop, AND when you receive gifts from your registry! (not valid on Beauty or Fragrances)

For a chance to win this KitchenAid 2-slice digital toaster and 14-cup coffee maker, simply leave a comment below with a link to an item from Macys.com you’d add to your registry….you can enter once a day. For the perfect get-up-and-go morning, the KitchenAid 2-slice digital toaster’s digital controls and extra-wide slots make it easy to toast, warm and defrost all kinds of bagels and breads, coupled with the KitchenAid coffee maker’s 24-hour programmable features so you can wake up to the enticing aroma of your favorite brew.   Winner will be announced on Wednesday, April 18, so you’ve got a full week to enter!  Good luck!

The 5-Year Engagement sweepstakes

When Chad and I got engaged, we ended up having a pretty lengthy engagement…2 1/2 years!  It wasn’t because we couldn’t get our stuff together, we essentially had our wedding planned within 6 months….it was because I didn’t want to get married in an odd-year.  You see, we got engaged towards the end of 2006, and could have gotten married in 2007 if we wanted to, but I have this thing with odd numbers, so we held off til Spring of 2008!  Maybe its a silly reason, but hey, we ended up having ALL even numbers for our anniversary date…04/26/08, so I’m pretty happy about that!

That leads me to the premise of a film coming out on April 27 called The 5-Year Engagement starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel….if you haven’t seen the previews yet, you absolutely must!  The characters, Tom & Violet, get engaged a year after meeting, and through a series of crazy events, their wedding gets postponed multiple times over 5 years…its from the producers of Bridesmaids, so its pretty much guaranteed to be hilarious.

A bunch of blogs today are getting in on the fun…each participating blog below is featuring a different save the date that Tom & Violet sent out over their 5 year engagement….simply collect 4 of the dates (seen on the STD card) and enter them at the sweepstakes page for a chance to win $1000 Amazon giftcard!

Borrowed & Bleu
The Broke-Ass Bride
Offbeat Bride
Green Wedding Shoes
Wedding Chicks
The Brides Cafe
Rock n Roll Bride
