Wrap It Up Pretty + Bloggers Challenge II by Copy Cat Chic!
September 16, 2011
Wow, I can't believe it's Friday again already! What a pretty week its been here at SMP! We are super excited to bring you our second Blogger's Challenge and if you missed it last week, you can see the first one right here. Basically, we've asked our favorite bloggers to create a super fabulous buying guide based on a popular SMP wedding so you can pick and choose the details that are just right for your own big day. And now it's Reichal Broussard's turn of Copy Cat Chic! Don't you just love her blog?! Her challenge was to create a buying guide for this gorgeous Austin wedding by The Nichols. Remember that one? It had us swooning for days!

1. A gorgeous pre-made centerpiece from Esty seller Naturodesign using a vintage cheese box is just like the original.
2. Fun and colorful straws with flag toppers make any drink a party.Etsy seller HeyYoYo has a variety of designs and colors to choose from.
3. A brightly striped tie from Sarar just like the grooms adds some cheer to formal attire.
4. These adorable mini chalkboards from Wisteria would make fun table numbers.
5. Glittery Christian Louboutin pumps inspired by the bride's original pair, but with the addition of just hint of color!
6. The handy-work on this gorgeous sash from Esty seller Sol Bijou is just so beautiful and I love the splash of pink, coral and aqua to tie it in with the wedding decor.
7. Vintage looking teal glass vases make perfect vessels for bright florals. Here are a few choices from Amazon: Turquoise Glass Bottle, Turquoise Vintage Glass Bottle and Vintage Turquoise Colored Bottle.
8. Mason jars make cocktail hour a little more casual and fun.
9. I absolutely love the Bow Monde from JCrew bridesmaid dresses they chose because they make the perfect neutral backdrop for all of the fun accent colors surrounding them.
10. Confetti streamers from Etsy seller Pip Squeak and Bean would be such a fun way to decorate and add color to your reception space.
11. These adorable ribbon pennant toppers from BHLDN would look smashing on appetizers or even on the wedding cake.
12. A gorgeous flower girl's dress from Zappos to match the bridesmaid's dress.

Now THAT's a buying guide! A big thanks to Reichel for sharing her talents and taking part of our 2nd Blogger's Challenge! Be sure to check out what else she had to say about the challenge right here on her fabulous blog. And don't forget to check back next week to see who's up for the next challenge!
