We seriously can’t think of a better way to wrap up this gorgeous week here at SMP than by sharing with all of you Abby’s guest post on Glamour! Be sure to check it out and see which SMP weddings were her absolute favorite this week. And if you didn’t know already, every Friday Glamour’s Save the Date blogger Kim selects her three favorite wedding dresses of the week. And can I just say, the girl’s got taste! Today, she’s chosen three dropped waist dresses, and she’s sharing one with us right here. Gorgeous, right? You can see the other two fabulous dresses right here.

And lastly, we have a lucky winner from our NY blog to announce!

Congrats Mara! From A Printable Press: It was hard to choose just one, but Mara’s entry won my heart over. She talked not only about amazing love but also about commitment (that not as pretty thing) reminding me that marriage is not just about that swooping feeling of love. The combination of love and commitment is why we readers are here. Thank you, Mara, for reminding me of something so important.

Have a pretty, pretty weekend! See you back here Monday morning. xoxo
