This December I will be attending the wedding of Victor Stopeck to Rachel Goodman. They are both stateside transplants to the island of St. Thomas, USVI so I get to take a trip to see the ceremony. Rachel is ever so sweet and yesterday she sent me links to three very cool sites she found for us less traditional brides:
http://www.weddingbee.com/ for ideas and blogs. It's good to hear from outside-of-the-box brides.
http://offbeatbride.com/ for more ideas and blogs. There was an actual costume party wedding on here.
http://www.etsy.com for cool handmade bridal accessories and bridal party gifts.
Etsy has been a bevy of uber gift ideas for my girls. I would have never thought to look here but I have found so many things that hit on their style. Their personalities are so different but I am sure they will all like the beautiful pieces I have found there. It has given me reason to pause in thinking that I would by them the standard jewlery to go with their dresses. Why not give them something they will wear always!!!!
