1. New Issue of Modern Bride Magazine.
I got this new issue on Monday (I believe) and proceeded to read it yesterday while I wasted time until my doctor appointment. While the cover promised ways to save money and "Dresses under $900" I wasn't impressed. The magazine had "Get the Ring You Want" articles. And the dresses were uninspiring to say the least. However, it did have a section on money management which was nice. My favorite part of the magazine is the real weddings. But I do like pictures and wedding porn and the magazine does offer that. However, after reading all the back entries of A Practical Wedding, I was a bit jaded.
2. Speaking of a Practical Wedding.
For a week, after work I would browse the website, found myself reading it more than just looking at pictures and loving her sense of writing and style. I also felt proud of doing my wedding the way I am. Which if you missed it.. is DIY. (With the exception of my bouquet now, I am getting it made.) I also loved something she said about how you should work with vendors who are so talented and underpaid that you think if I had the money I'd shove another $1000 at them. This is how I feel about my photographer.
3. Betsy Johnson
I have always loved her designs. Loved them since I was 14 and saw her in an issue of Vogue. So, when I was trolling Style and found a collection from her new line of wedding inspired funness, I flipped. Let me show you some Betsy!
Knee socks are back! YAY!
