More Than One Song?

While at the gym last night, I heard Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, and it instantly made me think of my wedding. My husband and I danced the very last dance of the night to this song, with a few close friends who were still around. It was so nice. My husband and I have so many songs that we consider to be "our songs", I hear one almost every day. I love it. In addition to our first dance (A Little Trip to Heaven by Tom Waits), we also have memories to go along with Hey Jude by The Beatles, When You Say Nothing At All by Allison Krauss, and Anything You Want by Roy Orbison. Do you and your guy have one than one song?

News

Make sure you stop by Vintage Glam and check out their Flea Market!

What is it: Free local wedding classifieds. You can browse by state and by city. There are no fees, and there is no subscription required. Users also have the option to state whether their items can be shipped or are available for pick up as well.

Why: to help brides cut their wedding costs, newlyweds recoup some of their wedding budget, and to get in the spirit of recycling, reusing and reducing.

How it works: choose your category, your area then start describing what you’re selling. It will ask you if you’re willing to will internationally, ship to the U.S only or if it’s only available for pick up (great for heavy or fragile items such as vases). You can upload up to 4 pictures no larger than 600×600pixels. There is also the option to publish your email address to the public or let users email you through a contact form that is visible on your ad page (recommended). This option keeps your email address anonymous.

Stop by the new and improved Elizabeth Anne Designs! There are new fantastic features like a community and bulletin boards!

{Event}: The New York Wedding Workshop

"How To" Series: How to Hire a Photographer and Videographer


SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 2009
10 AM – 12:30 PMGINA - Gallery of International Na├»ve Art 454 Columbus Avenue at 82nd StreetNew York, NY 10024 $50 (click to purchase tickets)


Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of wedding photographers and videographers in New York? Are you wondering how to tell one from the other without calling and meeting each one? Who is right for your wedding and what should you be looking for? Join us for a step-by-step seminar that will take you through the research and selection process for two of the most important vendors you will hire for your wedding day. Learn about film vs. digital, black and white vs. color, flash vs. natural light, candid vs. photojournalistic, discs vs. prints and all the other “buzz words” you are flooded with as you pour over photo and video websites. Also, get tips on negotiating contracts specifically with photographers and videographers to get the best value and to actually walk away with the images you want. This course is well-suited for novice planners as well as brides and grooms. Light refreshments will be served.

Snow and Ice

Lots of snow here in Ohio (and ice)! I am running a bit behind today. We are putting the finishing touches on the new Lucky Me, and moving Lucky Baby's blog to its own domain! I am hoping the redirect will update soon - the new domain is www.eluckybaby.com . In the meantime, here are a few beautiful dresses from Amsale. I love their new campaign in Martha Stewart Weddings.

Ties

While many brides are now choosing to monogram their dress, what about the groom? I love these monogrammed ties via m. writes. I think it would be a wonderful memory for the groom to reach for a tie for a date, and remember his wedding!

Lady in Red

Don't you just love Claire's hair and makeup? It is so soft, romantic, and natural. I think this would be a lovely look for a spring or summer wedding. Which celebrity sported your favorite look at the SAG awards?

Holiday Thank Yous

I really love sending snail mail thank yous. For the holidays, I used these notecards (complete with kraft envelopes and wrap around labels). I wanted them to coordinate with our holiday cards, so I used the same polkadot and pinecone motif. I added the beautiful "thank you" via Martha Stewart's website.

A Daisy Wedding

Daisies are not just for a child's birthday party. This lovely wedding is my inspiration board come to life, but in a very glamorous way!

Lucky Baby's Birthday

I have to say that my husband is very thoughtful. I am surprised more often than not with flowers when it is his turn to go to the grocery store. I noticed that he often brings home daisies. I completely agree with him. They are sweet, cheerful, and easy to take care of. This seemed like a perfect theme to use for Lucky Baby's first birthday party this spring. (I really cannot believe it has been almost a year already.) I chose daisies for a motif and navy and yellow for our colors. Yes, I am a bit obsessive. Yes, she won't remember. However, I want it to be special, and there will always be pictures. The invitation is also in the works of course. I will share them after they are completed. Here is a quick inspiration board I put together for the party. I feel so hip considering that I picked one of the chic color combinations for 2009 according to Kathryn!
