Friday Favors + a Long Distance Proposal


Happy Friday my lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for some Halloween fun this weekend! A few of my favorites from around the web…

• Love this ombre feather hairpiece from Mignonne Handmade – and her entire Fall collection actually :)

• Project Runway fave Christian Siriano designed this beautiful dress for Tammy (photo by Galaxie Andrews)

• Remember this beautiful vintage dress from the 500 Days of Summer shoot I styled last year? Well, I’m excited to announce that Mill Crest Vintage (where the gorgeous dress was borrowed from) is now a Featured Vendor of GWS! Check out all their lovely vintage dresses.

• Also new to our Featured Vendor listings are the super cute photography duo of Troy Grover Photographers! Love this Fall engagement session I spotted on their blog.

Attention invitation designers – have you entered Minted’s latest contest? You have a few days left to enter and I’m excited to be selected as one of the judges. Can’t wait to see all the entries!

Vermont Brides: Have you heard of The Vermont Wedding Affair ? It’s this Saturday Oct 29 at The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne Vermont and it looks pretty rad. Check out all the details here.

I love proposals! I shared this cute one yesterday and here is another sent from reader Carol. Carol’s been a big fan of the site for sometime now and just got engaged. Her fiancé Jason is a musician and wrote a lovely song for her and had videographers InFocus Cinema help create this beautiful video. I have to say, I just love the song! Congrats you two lovebirds!!

See you all back on Monday!
