Why did I not think of this before? Instead of a traditional guestbook, I’m going to be Gocco-ing cards with images of industrial cranes and anchors in honor of our Brooklyn Navy Yard wedding, but we have no idea what we’re going to have people put them in, but the Carrie bicycle basket works PERFECTLY since it comes in white AND green.

Violet emailed me yesterday with her new Signature line of invitations for Chewing the Cud…all amazingly creative and gorgeous! Each and every one has a personality of its own.

Laurie of lalalaurie emailed me last night with her new collection of boutonnieres and I fell in love! I’ve totall been seeing a trend of whimsical bouts incorporating feathers and such, and I love how men AND women can wear these. That double deer one is mine!

My first blog sort of fizzled out, but I’m happy to say that Brooklyn Bride has made it to her 1st birthday! I think the question I get most from people is whether or not I’ll continue the blog after I’m married…my response is always if there is cool stuff to post, I’ll be here posting it! I’ve been obsessed with weddings since I can remember, so I see no point in stopping now. Anyway, I’m having far too much fun meeting people and finding the best there is out there for modern weddings.
Thanks so much for sticking with me this past year…couldn’t have done it without you! As a fun thank you, I’m holding a little contest…leave a comment below with what you like about Brooklyn Bride, what you would change, what you would add or like to see more of, whatever you want! Next Wednesday, I’ll pick a winner to receive a specially designed hairpiece by Myra Kim of Twigs and Honey*! She’s so wonderful and has designed this amazing hairband just for Brooklyn Bride’s birthday! Thanks Myra!
