NotWedding pics

Oh my god, I’ve literally been DYING to see the pictures from the NotWedding last month, and they finally ended up in my mailbox!  Our Labor of Love did a great job capturing each different flavor from the event, from formal to picnic…if I ever swooned, it would be now.  Check out all the talented vendors involved at the NotWedding blog.

Introducing The B-List

This past weekend, Anne of From I Will to I Do and I co-hosted a bridal blogger event here in Brooklyn…to explain a little bit, it was a small get together meant to really introduce ourselves in person to our favorite bloggers, talk about blogging and weddings, share tips and ideas that have helped our blogs, and provide overall support.  Afterwards, we held a vendor meet and greet, since many of us had written about these people but had never met them in person.  The event was a smashing success, and hopefully, the B-List can grow into an event we host all over the US, and maybe spark some offshoot events in lots of cities so we can get to know more people in the industry.  We’re so incredibly grateful for all the bloggers who traveled as far out as the west coast to attend, and of course, to our sponsors who made this all possible.  I’ll cover some stuff here, and the rest will be on the B List blog (pictures will be up shortly).

NY Mag Wedding recap

This year was my third round of the NY Magazine Wedding Event, and it could possibly be the best one yet!  More vendors, BETTER vendors, but space to walk around…all add up to a successful event.  Here are some of my favorites from last night….

Yummy truffles from Taste Caterers….I loved the way they presented them.

Lots of gorgeous gowns as you walked in…

Mel Barlow talking to a bride on the left, Crave Catering display on the right.  Veggies never looked so good!

Yummy mini milkshakes from Mary Giuliani Catering….

Karen Cunningham‘s completely coordinated table!  That church shot is one of my favorites.

Happiness abounds at Jenny Ebert‘s table, designed by Barb at Hatch Creative.  Those flowers were crazy cool.

Beautiful arrangement from the geniuses over at Takashimaya…so good to reconnect with my old middle school buddy Peter who is now their Creative Director!

The NotWedding

This spring, The NotWedding is back in Atlanta, and it’s going to be an even bigger party than before. On Sunday April 5th, talent from the likes of Our Labor of Love, Joy Thigpen, Ashley Baber, Jacob’s Reverie and many more will be filling W Atlanta Buckhead to create an unforgettable night for our guests.

So you may wonder- what exactly is The NotWedding?… Simply put, it’s a big, fake wedding that shows off some of the city’s most talented vendors in action. Guests can partake in a cocktail hour, an all-out ceremony full of surprises, and a reception that you’re sure to write home about.

Check out for more information and to purchase your tickets to the event. Tickets are $25, and admission includes a gift bag {the first 100 receive a super-deluxe bag}… food, drinks and dancing… a raffle ticket… and quite possibly the most fun you’ll ever have.

I’m so beyond jealous that I can’t make this event…it just sounds so damn cool! But hey, I’ll be in Atlanta soon enough for a little vacay in May, hurray! Any recommendations of things to do down there would be much appreciated. 1st on the list, hitting the Aquarium!
