Ahh, another year older…after a while you don’t even notice! I’m swamped today with work and birthday festivities, so no posts today. However, as my birthday wish, I was hoping you’d all do me a favor…I’d like to get a better idea of my demographic and who’s checking out the ole Brooklyn Bride. If you have a moment, I’d appreciate if you could take 2 minutes to complete this short survey I’ve compiled…don’t worry, its completely painless. I’d really just like to make this a better place for modern brides everywhere.
See you all on Monday, have a great weekend!

The simplicity of Simple Silhouettes really caught my attention when searching for bridesmaids dresses…there are tons of fabrics to choose from, and lots of different styles to accommodate any body type, including maternity. If you’re an understated bride, you could even find your gown here! They’re main location is in Soho, but you can find their dresses nationwide at various retailers. I was there yesterday with some of my bridesmaids getting final sizes and styles decided…[hi michelle!]
UPDATE: from now until November 15 you can get 15% off instead of the usual 10% on everything in the store! its not posted on their website yet, but check in a couple of days for more details.

I picked up the latest issue of Living Etc. and fell in love with this room….the greys and purples with a hint of crystal would make such a beautifully modern wedding palette….

I was tagged by Rhonda over at Our Wedding Plus for the Green Challenge:
*We recycle! There are bins in the apartment for paper, plastic, etc….its such an easy thing to do!
*When we go grocery shopping, we bring along our reusable Trader Joe’s tote bags…it actually makes carrying groceries a lot less strenuous when you can carry them over your shoulder!
*I got rid of my beautiful green VW Beetle after grad school, so now we use Zipcar to get around if we ever need to get out of the city. Otherwise, its public transportation all the way.
Since everyone I know has already been tagged, let open it up to readers…what do you do to lessen your impact on the environment?

Many of you have probably seen the Wedding Day Survival kits floating around the internet, but you may have not seen the Bridesmaids version yet…a very thoughtful gift considering that your pantyhose may not be the ONLY one to get a run!
