I’ve been trying to get this post up all day to let you all know ASAP, but other obligations (work) prevented me from doing so.
I want to help everyone find the best things for their weddings, and what better way to GET these things than contests? We all would like a chance at getting free stuff!
Style Me Pretty is having a contest for gorgeous cake stands from Raise the Cake. All you have to do is pick out which one is favorite from their collection and post a comment on Style Me Pretty’s post telling them which one it is!

Next, we have the Savvy Steal Giveaway from One Wed for a Simple Human steel bar rectangular step can. Yeah, I know, it’s a trash can, but if you know your housewares, you know that Simple Human is the best of the best. This trash can is worth $200! So why not enter to win it?

A very dear friend of mine (best) has been obsessing over Peach and Teal colors for the past few weeks. Every so often I get an email of a photo or link with the words “Remind me I want this for my wedding that isn’t happening for another 10 years.”

Well, I know this time span isn’t true, and I absolutely adore her, so I made a Inspiration Board to tickle her fancy. She has always talked of a beach wedding, and these colors are perfect for the beach.

Along the way, I realized how fresh and crisp the two colors are together. The combination exudes class, intimacy, and a very easygoing vibe. Peach and teal (or orange and aqua/turquoise for bolder color choices) would work wonderfully as a color palette for any season. Adding in neutrals, such as white or tan, could easily set the tone from playful to more elegant.

And I did eat a peach while searching for all of this inspiration. How could you not?

We’re sending a photo with our Thank You notes (per my mother’s insisting), and we can’t decide which one we want to send.
Which photo would you choose? Should it be more traditional or more artistic and fun?
Please leave a comment with your response! Your opinion is greatly appreciated!

(Some are from our Post Wedding shoot, which I haven’t posted yet! Keep an eye out for more pictures later in the week!)

I randomly found Lulu’s the other day, and their dresses are just adorable AND affordable! Some of them are cheap and they’re not even on sale!

For more stylish dresses, go to ModCloth. They have a huge selection of dresses, and their prices are pretty decent!
