Little Black Book
March 21, 2008

Update: We are going to be adding new featured vendors to this post throughout the day! Just scroll down to see these gorgeous designers...

It's a little hard for me to contain my excitement about the Little Black Book. We set out to find our favorite three designers in each major bridal category, in each major city...and you know what, we've had incredible feedback from brides and vendors alike. It's developing into a beautiful resource for any bride, filled with stunning inspirations and brilliant wedding vendors.

Over the last few months, we've added new cities and states...we've got most of California covered, we've added great wedding cities like Charleston, Lake Tahoe, beautiful spots in South Carolina, North Carolina and a great selection in Florida. And really, that's not even cracking the surface! We are working hard on Canada, on Texas and on just about every other city that you've mentioned.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the vendors that we are loving. Verbena Flowers in Austin does absolutely beautiful work....


All of these gorgeous photos were taken by another one of our Little Black Book members, the oh-so-talented Steven Karlisch from Dallas. Check out both Steven and Verbena's sites today when you have a minute!

I am also madly in love with Mindy Rice's Florals, out in Los Angeles...

How amazing are these flowers? And the color palette? And let's be serious...the menus and the hanging lanterns are just about as incredible as they come. Check out Mindy's site for some serious inspiration!

Izzy Girl is one of my favorite Seattle Invitation Designers...


Her work is clever and yet refined. It's the perfect combination of creativity and elegance. Check out the Izzy Girl site for more great ideas!

And just look at these beauty shots featuring make-up done by MakeUp NV in New York...


Remember that the Little Black Book is a work in progress! We are constantly researching new vendors, new cities and new regions. We want to make sure that we can put our SMP stamp of approval on every listed vendors, knowing that they are doing innovative, beautiful work in their industry.

If you have a city or a vendor recommendation, we'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment or email me at abby at style me pretty dot com!
