My Annual WEDDING BLOG PARTY is coming!!

~ Click HERE to join the party already in progress ~

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

I'm hoping you will join me on Friday, June 10th 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 and legends, funny anecdotes, great wedding movies and get the idea.

How about an "If I were to get married all over again, here's what I'd do......".

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!

Here is the sidebar button ~ Just right click and "Save As" to your computer, then add as a gadget on your sidebar with the following link back to me :

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, , either on your sidebar or as a special blog post!! Additional entries can be earned by being/becoming a follower. And another entry if you link up and party with us! How's that for bribery?!?!

Click HERE to visit last year's party and giveaway if you need further inspiration. 
Email me with any questions or suggestions.....

Big Hugs,

Great idea!
I will post some pics from my nephew's wedding last summer. His wife had a completely "green" wedding. No waste!
This will be so much fun to see what others (and YOU) share!

Hi Stephanie, I plan to join in on the wedding blog party. Looking forward to it. I just found a gorgeous 60's or 70's wedding cake topper that I plan to incorporate in a fresh floral arrangement for the wedding party here in September. And I plan to use some old honeycomb bells too. Love those! I am a follower now. So sorry, thought I already was and I am putting the badge on my sidebar. See you soon and have a wonderful week. ~ Lynn

Oh, Grrrrr that I came back to blogging a week too late for this event! I love weddings, my daughter is a new-mom-therefore-retired wedding planner, and I have all kinds of wedding stuff! Well, I'll just start planning for next year! :-) In the meantime, I did post pictures of my daughter's wedding from a year ago this past week if you want to take a peek.
