a few of this week's FAVORITE THINGS...

It's Friday and that means a look at some of my FAVORITE blog posts from the week. Click on the blog name to visit the post.  Enjoy!

Loving the Aqua and Coral color palatte that DC's own garter guru Julianne Smith shares on THE GARTER GIRL.  I adore the matching Aqua Blue and Coral Orange garter from Julianne's new collection which will benefit the Pink Initiative. FYI-the Pink Initiative is a non-profit organization of wedding professionals dedicated to funding awareness, outreach, education and research for breast cancer.

FRESH LIME EVENTS shares advice about Creating Your Wedding Day Timeline. A must-read, especially if you do not have a planner.  Mitzvah moms should take a look as well.  This advice can be adapted for your celebration too.

OFFBEAT BRIDE shares how with a lot of creativity (and a little Dr. Suess), one fabulous couple pulled off their dream wedding on a $3000 budget.  The big lesson learned (regardless of the type of event you are planning-wedding, mitzvah, shower) from this is that a lot of creativity can go a long way-regardless of your budget.

Miss Cola shares her list of "Photos We Must Have!" on WEDDINGBEE.  I believe that no matter how amazing your photographer is, you should never assume that he or she will know exactly what you want, so this type of list is so important.  Again, mitzvah moms should take a look as well.  This advice can be adapted for your celebration too.


Enjoy!
