…So Grab A Cup-A-Joe & Let’s Get Some Ideas Flowing!
For some reason, drinking coffee helps me focus and get creative. It motivates me. Perhaps I drink a bit too much of it and need to cut down. For now, however, I continue to enjoy it…even more so that I recently broke out our espresso machine! Frothing is fabulous. Even saying the word “froth” is fun! Go on. Say it. “Froth!”.
Let’s take a look at what’s brewing around the wedding industry and froth up some ideas, shall we?

Here’s what’s up…
Bliss Weddings Market: Shares with us ways to go paperless when it comes to favor and gift styling. Using fabric, enjoy the Japanese art of Furoshiki wrapping! Seriously way cool. Thanks to this idea, I can finally put my old bridesmaid sashes to good use!
Isn’t She Lovely: Shares with us her gorgeous wedding band she’s decided upon…in the shape of a horseshoe! I don’t think a wedding band can get much more unique, do you? I think this is a great idea for brides who want to show off “feeling lucky” to be marrying the man they love.
The Blissful Bride: Makes us laugh with hilarious but harmless pranks for friends and family to play at your wedding…ooooh too much fun!
Perfect Bound: Inspires us to coordinate our wedding food with our wedding colors. I’m especially loving the jewel-toned wedding palette…yum!
Sonia Roselli Esthetique: Sonia invites girls over for a bachelorette party, in her brand new Chicago shop! A perfect way to have a little fun or get dolled up before that night on the town. Let Sonia help you customize 2 of your own personal flavored & colored glosses, do your makeup via airbrushing techniques, apply temporary individual lashes and get glam, currently starting at under $100! For a little extra fee, you can get your hair styled too. Ooooh la la!
Snippet & Ink: Popular for her inspiration boards, Kathryn is also the queen of sharing discounts and cool giveaways from around the web! She also shared with her readers about my very first giveaway, a chance to win a signed copy of the book, “Intimate Weddings” by author Christina Friedrichsen! If you haven’t entered yet, you have until March 4th. If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Snippet & Ink yet, do so now! Thanks, Kathryn!
ABCD Design: Introduces the idea of hosting a house-cooling party instead of a house-warming party since she’s moving out of her house soon. I love it. Be sure to check out her ideas to see her plans for this awesome party idea!
Truly Engaging: Offers an extremely affordable but adorable idea for DIY wedding or shower favors. Simply print out tiny pictures of you and your soon-to-be husband or wife and cut them into circles to apply to the bottom of Hershey Kisses! For the favor tags, write: “What’s Under A Kiss” – how sweet is that? So creative.
Bubbly Bride: Caroline realized that while everyone is a not cake person, most of us do love Rice Krispy Treats! What’s the next best thing? Rice Krispy Treat wedding cakes…feast your eyes over a few of the ones she’s featured…so yummy and well, “krispy”! Save a piece for me, please.
Prima Donna Bride: Features a Marie Antoinette Inspired Party, a fabulous idea for your bachelorette party or bridal shower! Without a wig, I bet you could just tease that hair up and hairspray the heck out of it…maybe stick some pink bows in there. Your man might think you look like Marge Simpson, but your girls will think you look ultra fab!
Tickled Pink: Offers brides loads of truly affordable wedding dress ideas…each one of them absolutely gorgeous!!! Save your dough, yo. After you’re married, you might want to use that extra money to decorate your house with, if you’re anything like my sister (or a million other brides, for that matter…). I mean, you could actually just save your money too…
