Did you know that the vendor meals you order from your
caterer or reception venue are usually a cheap, soggy
turkey sandwich? That’s right. All of the hardworking
vendors you love that have been with you the entire day are
being served a stale sandwich. Often they don’t even
have a chair to sit their tired butts down on!
I just thought you should know.
(Hint: Order them a hot meal!)

Our ad looks incredible. Thank you so much Lynda! Lynda
Junge, the stylish genius behind Greenstar Creative, designed the ad for
us. She’s a rockstar. Check out her website full of
gorgeous handmade stationery and custom invitations! You may
remember her from a certain amazing piece of press she
received in the Fall…the Daily Candy Wedding Edition! We
can’t say enough about Greenstar Creative. Please,
please give Lynda a call before you settle on a boring
invitation from the book at your tuxedo shop.
I just found this fun “game” on the Tiffany
& Co. website today. I thought I’d share it, since
it’s the holiday season and you may be daydreaming
about gifts–sparkly gifts.
Build Your Own Celebration Ring!
I also wanted to let you know about a fun new trend has
started in engagement rings…and it’s easier on
the wallet than you might expect. Instead of choosing a
traditional engagement ring with one large stone, try an
eternity band! For your wedding ring, select another
complimentary or matching eternity band for a beautiful
set. Then, when you celebrate life’s big events
(first home, new baby, milestone birthday), you have an
automatic gift that he can’t mess up! Only kidding,
