Friday Finds 8.12.11

August 12th, 2011

For those of you who obsess over the wedding world like I do, you probably have heard of Mindy Weiss. She is the one behind a ton of celebrity weddings & parties. Fergie and Josh Duhamel, Heidi Klum & Seal, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are just a few of her clients. She knows her stuff. Today’s find is her eStore. Not only does she have amazing wedding items, but quite a few adorable items for a 1-year-old’s birthday (for those of you married and already getting the “so when are you having kids?” questions), jewelry, home accessories, etc. You really do need to check out her store. Not only are the pieces super cute, but reasonably priced! Here are just a few of the things I fell in love with:

What a wonderful shower gift!! Placing a sixpence in your shoes is a time honored tradition for many familes. Who doesn’t need a little extra luck when starting out on a journey like marriage?

How adorable are these books? Little kids love gifts and what a perfect way to make them feel special for your big day!


Friday Finds 3.4.11 (Late!)

March 8th, 2011

Holy crap. I can’t believe I missed it! I know exactly why though. I had an extremely crazy end of last week and an even crazier weekend. Ok, excuses over. Here’s my most recent find for you. In my searches for good attendant gifts, I have found that finding a good gift for the groomsman can be tricky. Brides can get their bridesmaids jewelry, clutches, etc. Easy! But what in the world do you get the groomsman? I thought about just telling Joey he was on his own, but then I felt bad. I found this neat site that has a ton of good ideas. It’s called Groom Stand. They have a ton of different ideas for personalizing a great gift to your groomsman. And they are surprisingly reasonably priced! Oh and just a note, you don’t have to get all of the guys the same gift. You can change it up and get each one something that is suiting to their personality. Just as long as you keep all the gifts in the same price range, no one will feel shafted. Now get to shopping boys!
