A WEDDING BLOG PARTY is coming!


If you have been following my blog for any time, you probably already know that I collect wedding memorabilia. Since June is the month of our wedding anniversary and also the month many brides walk down the aisle, I felt it would be an appropriate time for me to try out my wings and hostess a blog party about weddings!

I'm hoping you will join me on Friday, June 25th with a special post of your choosing. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. Anything bridal and romantic goes.......your own personal pictures, stories, collections, something you google, whatever.  Gowns from the sublime to the "what were they thinking" category, florals, receptions, wedding jewelry, wedding destinations, customs, funny anecdotes, great wedding movies and music....you get the idea.



Now I've never played hostess to a worldwide blog party before but I've sure joined in on a ton of them and I've wanted to do this party for a long time. I'm giving you 3 + weeks to think and plan (try using blogger's pre-scheduler ~ it is great), a nifty little sidebar button to help spread the word (that I will NOT tell you how long it took me to make), and I'm also going to have another little GIVEAWAY, too. I think those are the main ingredients but if you think of anything else that I should add, just let me know!



I'll be getting MY special post ready, and will put up a link the night before the party so that you can all join in with me. As a special little incentive to help spread the word, I'll throw your name into my bridal basket for the surprise giveaway if you add the above button to your blog with a link back to me,  http://angelicaccents.blogspot.com , either on your sidebar or as a special blog post!! Just copy and paste. How's that for bribery?!?!

Email me with any questions or suggestions.....

Big Hugs,

I would love to be part of your party! Our wedding anniversary is in June also. I have something adorable that I purchased at a thrift store that will be perfect for a post!!

See you then, Sherry

Well, Stephanie, I posted it but I will need you to send me every single step of the way how to do every thing that will need to be done as I do not know how to do these linky things, at all.

What a wonderful idea ... I can hardly wait.

Have a beautiful week.

Hiya Steph! Thank you so much for your sweet note~ I will try to get back in the swing of things.
I would really like to participate in this party but we will be out of town. Lemme think about it and see if I can figure out the post date do-hickey!

Loved your pink post, great idea of the mosaics of all your pinks!
Too bad I missed out on the give away! Poo!! LOL!

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Stephanie,
Oh what a fun party and great idea. Count me in sweetie. I would love it. You will be a fabulous hostess and this post is already a great indication of that.
Looking forward to all the wonderful posts, stories, pics and more.
Happy Anniversary to you a little early. You will be celebrating all month long.

Thank you for stopping by, I was just about to come here and say hi and hope you have a great week.
We are back to our normal routine this week and I missed my guy so much today as he went back to work. Ryan is really sick with the worst case of pink eye ever. He had to go to the ER yesterday and today to the doctor. Started out with a upper respitory infection that went into his eye and is highly contagious. They said it is viral. I just made a care package to send over to his house. He has to be off work till Friday.
I will be busy trying to help. You know, what mom's just have to do.

Have a good week dear one and see you again soon.
Love ya, Celestina Marie

Great party idea, Stephanie! Please enter me in your giveaway. I posted your beautiful bride button here: http://foodasart-beth.blogspot.com.

Beth Leintz said...

Oh my- I love vintage wedding stuff- I used to collect it through out the year, and then in May, I'd do a wedding display at my booth at the antique mall. I didn't do one this year, and just a few days ago, I ran across a bunch of pictures and invitations I'd set aside- perfect for the party.

(Our 25th wedding annive is Jun 28, and my parents 50th is Jun 26)

Sue Mattson said...

Count me in, too! I'd love to join a wedding blog party and share my wedding experiences. Just to share a bit of my wedding party, it was held in a spacious open field close to a crystal clear river (great for swimming). My father had negotiated with a San Diego tent rental company to set up a huge tent so we can relax and enjoy the food without melting from the summer heat.

Because of my father's good communication skills, another tent rental Sacramento company offered us a different tent that we turned into a ladies lounge complete with couch and carpet.

Anyway, I can't wait to join the blog party and to read everything about weddings. I'm positive you will always be a great hostess. Keep it up!
