Unique Weddings Week

Continuing on with our second day of Unique Weddings Week, this next one was sent to me by the lovely and talented Suzi Q of Q Weddings. I have to say, I fell in love with this wedding the minute I saw it. It's the perfect combination of fun and yet totally elegant...

Unique Wedding Week

I am absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of our Unique Weddings Week. We've enlisted the help of our Little Black Book members, along with our loyal readers, to help us come up with some of the most innovative, personality-filled affairs. They are budgets large and small (and everything in between), they are quirky and they are sophisticated, they are fun, they are filled with unique touches and they aren't afraid to cross the...

Spring Inspiration

We had one fleeting day of Spring in Boston yesterday...you know, that perfect 70 degree weather, not a cloud in the sky. Notice the word fleeting, as the temperature is dropping as we speak and the clouds are moving in for a rainy weekend. But, even if we only felt it for a minute, Spring is definitely on it's way!

I thought that I would kick-off your weekend with some seriously beautiful Spring inspiration from Rosenow Floral Design in...

Unique Wedding Week

I wanted to post a few more fun pictures from today's sneak peak at our upcoming Unique Weddings Week. This tea inspired wedding, captured by Boutwell Studio, is the perfect example of the types of weddings that we will be featuring. The couple focused on the elements that meant a lot to them, keeping things simple so that the guests could really see the personalities of the pair...

Thank you so much to...

Unique Wedding Week

Starting next week, we will be diving head first into a full week (or more) of brilliantly unique, personality filled real weddings. These aren't your standard, traditional affairs...instead, we are focusing on those weddings where the couple really infused their personalities into their big day, designing a style that was uniquely their own.

We've recruited our Little Black Book members, along with our readers, to send us...

Ask Abby

Our last question for today comes from Lauren...

Q4: I have found a really cool, yet unexpected (at least compared to the usual country club weddings) site for my wedding. It's the Oklahoma City Farmer's Market. The building has beautiful, if rough around the edges, architecture. Huge, paned windows, an enormous wood floor...it's a beautiful space. It does have its quirks. One that has me pausing are the murals...

Ask Abby

Our third question is from Valerie who is looking for a little color palette help...

Q3:Sadly I am at a complete LOSS about weddings. I was one of those girls who never thought about getting married and now that I am engaged, I have become obsessed. I am getting married in July at a winery in Calistoga CA. The ceremony is outside, then a formal dinner inside. I am wearing a gorgeous Jenny Lee gown with ivory over blush -- so it is a pearly color of white. No idea what colors to...

Ask Abby

Here is the second question of the day, and one that I am pretty sure a lot of brides are struggling with!

Question number two comes from Leasa...

Q2: Help!!! My best friend and maid of honor has informed me that she will be seven months pregnant by the time my wedding rolls around in October of this year. There is no way I would even consider taking my vows without her by my side, but I want her to look cute and stylish for the wedding (not dumpy). I also want her to...

I'm actually traveling back to Boston today, after a great vacation with my family. But, I wanted to leave you with a reader inspiration board that is sure to get the creativity (and the motivation) flowing!

This gorgeous board is designed by Rebecca who is looking to create a magazine-worthy wedding for "waaaay under $10,000!" Here is the inspiration...

Wedding Invitations by Chewing the Cud, II

So, in an effort to really reach out to all of our brides, I am going to start offering a "Look for Less" style feature on many of our posts. Today, Viola from...
