A RESOURCEFUL BRIDE!

Great news from one of my favorite blogs! The girls at Elizabeth Ann Designs have really put togethr a wonderful resource guide for brides called Elizabeth Anne Designs Library. Wait until you see all the fabulous vendors in their list of Who's Who in the wedding industry!! No matter where you are, they have a listing for you. And, if you don't see what you need- just send them an email and ask- they will find a vendor in your town too! This is a great idea- wish I had thought of it! Read what they have to say below and then click on the link to find out more!!

We are incredibly excited to announce our new project, The EAD Library. After months of development and research, we are launching a new resource for brides tomorrow, Tuesday July 22nd. The Library is filled with hundreds of useful links, from photographers to shops to stationers. Our goal is a simple, comprehensive list of vendors. The Library will help every bride, no matter her location, find the vendors and inspiration she needs for a beautiful event.

CANDID EYE CANDY CONTEST!

Inspired Goodness and Canditto are having a contest all this month and I wanted to tell all of you New England brides about it!! The rules are below, so enter away and good luck!

Submit your wackiest, crazy, funny candid wedding-event related shots to Inspired
Goodness
for a chance to win a free Canditto kiosk for your upcoming wedding!
We all know that sometimes the photos you remember most from weddings are not the ones the professional
photographers took, but rather the snapshots your friends and family snuck during the fun ‘behind the scenes’
times. To celebrate those silly moments, Inspired Goodness and Canditto are excited to announce the first ever
Candid Eye Candy Contest to give one lucky bride-to-be free rental of a Canditto kiosk for the night of her
wedding. With this new device, the grand-prize-winner can collect copies of all of her guests’ digital photos onsite,
and receive a CD-rom at the end of the evening. The prize is open to anyone in the New England area (MA,
CT, VT, RI, NH, ME).
Contest Details:
Your mission is to provide Inspired Goodness with your very best candid pictures from any wedding-related event
(showers, bachelorette parties, past weddings, etc.) We’re looking for fun, quirky, crazy and silly pictures. All
submission must have been taken by friends or family members (no professional photographer pix, please) and
should include a short description of the photo details.
How winners will be chosen:
Inspired Goodness and Canditto will select the top 3 finalists, revealed on Monday, July 28, 2008 and Inspired
Goodness’ readers will have a chance to vote for your favorite at that time. The winner will be announced by
Inspired Goodness on Thursday, July 31st, 2008 and Inspired Goodness will post a link so you can view all the

WIRED FOR WEDDINGS!

Calling all brides in need of advice and ideas! Wedding Wire is a wonderful resource for all things wedding. You can find vendors, get advice from other brides and vendors, read reviews of vendors and see pictures of their work. For all of you who frequent the Knot boards, many of the vendors you ask each other about are rated on Wedding Wire. Oh, and Martha Stewart has parntered with them, so you know it must be good! Read on ladies- and don't forget to read about me from some of my past clients!




WHOLLY MATRIMONY!

I discovered this blog through Christine Tremoulet's blog today and wanted to share! It's so much fun to read and there are contests and stuff for all of you brides out there! Christine has taken over from the original blogger and you can get the whole story from Christine's blog. Enjoy!

PICTURE PERFECT!

This is the greatest idea!!! Laura, over at Picture It Yourself emailed me about her awesome company that will send you digital cameras for your wedding, then she will upload the photos on the web for your guests to order- AND, you get a CD of all the photos!! This is a fabulous idea instead of diposable cameras for all of those candid moments and if you are on a tight budget, imagine how much fun you can have making your own album from all of the guest shots! Visit Laura and let her know you heard about her from me- there is a discount if you do!!
