…At The Sweet Unfolding!

I love pretty things and even more so, pretty things that are Eco-friendly!  After visiting, I was inspired to shop green by shopping local at Etsy,  and came across these lovely banners from Etsy seller TheSweetUnfolding.  Check out the ones they already have available, or get one personalized with your own phrase and choice of colors!

Welcome Banner:

Just look at the exquisite details…

Hang at weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays or any occasion!  After the event, save your banner as a keepsake to hang in your home, or to reuse for another event.

It’s just lovely!

What’s really cool about this Etsy seller?  Not only do they create beautiful banners, but they also give 5% of their profits to www.Kiva.orgto help bring to life the entrepreneurial dreams of people in developing countries”.

…For The Cure!

Yes, you read it correctly!  Breast Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner – so in honor of being smart about our boobies and helping others, I thought I’d share some thoughts on how to truly “think pink” when planning the bachelorette party.


Head on over to the Wishpot Wedding Blog now to find the hottest invitations, decorations, favors and gifts for your party!  Each item featured either helps spread breast cancer awareness or the company donates a percentage towards helping find the Cure.  To get this party started and help in the fight against breast cancer, click HERE!


 Happy planning!

…You’re A Smart Girl.  Be A Smart Bride Too!

Maria from When In Rome is a smart bride.  She’s breaking in her wedding shoes!  Maybe you already know to do this.  Whether you do or you don’t, here’s a reminder and a “how-to”…

Also, just in case, it’s always smart to bring a second pair of wedding shoes or a pair of fun flip flops.  There’s nothing worse than being in pain on your wedding day.  Happy feet make a happy bride!  Do you have any advice on how to stay comfortable on your wedding day?  If so, we’d love to hear!

Glamorous Feather Wreaths – The Look For Less!

with 4 comments

…Can You Guess Which Costs Less?  Don’t Scroll Down Until You’re Done Guessing!

 These fabulous feather wreaths would work great at a Halloween Party or Halloween Wedding, a Glamorous Vintage Hollywood Style Wedding, a Black, Red & White Wedding, or a Goth Wedding.  Both are very similar, so no matter your budget, you can achieve the almost the same look!  Now guess which one costs less:

 Can’t guess?  Here’s a hint:  One of these wreaths was featured in a recent Halloween decor post.  Missed it?  Okay fine, I’ll tell you.  The black one is from Pottery Barn, however the black and red wreath from Target, costs less!  But they’re both cool, aren’t they? 

Just goes to show, if you keep your eyes peeled, you can find the look for less in many things for your wedding!  Happy hunting!
