Bridesmaids gifts with purpose

So, you say you wanna get your girls something pretty, something affordable, something shiny maybe??? Now how about all of that plus charitable and good for other women? Can't be done? .... oh yes, yes we can!

Check out The Breast Cancer Site Store which is chock full of goodies at totally reasonable prices and all of your purchases provide mammograms to women in need. Want some evidence??? Good call counselor ...

Exhibit A - how about some pearls for your girls???

Exhibit B - ring-a-ding, ding?

Exhibit C - maybe you're into heavy metal?

You know I've made my case.

Oh and if your not into the jewelry thing, they have clothes, home products, bags, accessories ... let's face it, they have everything. So what are you waiting for?? Go buy yourself something pretty and help out women in need ... has there ever been a better idea? Answer = nope!

How fabulous are these?? Both from Dogeared. You know your girl loves a tree accent on pretty much anything ... and these are just darling. Someone page the Big Guy and let him know I need a little bit of this in my world. Stat.

Wedding Task: Florist


Yep, thats right folks .. we booked our florist! The super cool, super creative, super floral dude that is .....

The brains behind these beautiful blooms ...

For more for his work check his site or SMP where he has been featured a number of times.

James made us an offer we just could not refuse .. including a chuppah, high and low centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres,  flowers for cocktail hour, even arrangements for the bathrooms! And for a price that actually worked in our budget, right from the start, no haggling or arguing! I know, its unheard of!

You know your girl is always ready to hussle in this wedding game  .. but to tell you the truth, when everything goes nice and smoothly lie it did with James ... it such a relief! And it def makes these countless wedding decisions soo much easier!

One more thing to check off that long list of wedding to-dos! ... I love it when a plan comes together.
