Hooray! It’s Friday. It’s all sparkly and fall-ish out. And someone won our bunting giveaway. We ended up choosing a random winner using Random.org because you were all deserving and all had good ideas. So much easier to let the internet do the work for us! And the winner is:
Hooray, Jessica! We’ll send you an email to get your mailing address. We hope these little flags en-cuteify your sweet little cabin. How beautiful it must be to watch the leaves change from your window.
And hope the rest of you have scary weekends. Maybe some of you are heading to the Ace Halloween party? Amanda will be there representing.
This is a super quick post to tell you to GO TO SAIPUA’s BLOG RIGHT NOW and enter the giveaway for a pretty floral delivery tomorrow. It’s open to you peeps in Manhattan and Brooklyn. And look what you might get:
We couldn’t count the ways we love Sarah and her way with petals. She’s like a floral magician.
Also, it sounds like this is going to be a weekly occurrence so set up some sort of recurring alarm on your calendar and enter every Thursday!
Remember over the summer when we did that extra excellent photography giveaway with Jen Rau? The engagement shoot just happened and now we get to share the pics. Aren’t they so super cute?
Congrats again, Brittney and Brandon. We can’t wait to see your wedding!

We have another installment of the guest column by East Side Bride today. Hooray! This one is something all brides can relate to. And ESB has the perfect solution, as always. Here we go:
I’ve attached a photo of my wedding dress. Do you have suggestions on what to wear in my hair? I’m over the birdcage, I’m over the tulle. Everyone has flowers. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? I’ve effed myself with this situation, my dress is cream and I’m just not finding anything right now.
(That is not me in the picture, btw.)
Dear That Is Not Me,
I think you should go with a good old-fashioned veil. I think, in fact, the good old-fashioned veil is about to come back with a VENGEANCE. (You heard it here first).
How bout this silk tulle version with lace trim by Twigs & Honey? It’s tulle that doesn’t scream T-U-L-L-E, if you know what I mean. And I think it’ll give just the right touch of softness to the lace badassery that is your dress.
p.s. Myra is happy to do custom orders if you give her enough lead time, so by all means get the veil in cream.
