We’re excited to share details of a brand new pop-up wedding event, Locally Grown Love!

We will be crafting the weekend away for Christmas and decorating for the holidays, so I thought I’d share some ideas for ornaments from our DIY library. Everything is cuter in miniature size. How seriously adorable would be a photo transfer in a mini canvas as an ornament?

We’re throwing our very first Daughters of Simone trunk show and we’d love to see your shining faces there! We know, we know. Why should you go to a bridal event if you aren’t a bride? We’ve got you covered. There’s a little something for everyone:

-Friends, come say hello… FREE champagne, sweet bites and hugs
-Brides, view select Daughters of Simone gowns in person and talk to us about scheduling a fitting!
-Shoppers, RGB is a design-inspired clothing boutique that houses thoughtfully curated clean + functional pieces. If you aren’t in the market for a bridal dress, you’ll be in the right place to score a killer party dress.

The year is officially coming to a close, and we’re becoming a bit wistful over all of the amazing weddings we’ve featured this year! We hope you’ve enjoyed our round-ups of our favorite moments from this year as much as we have, but we’re not quite done yet — we thought we’d compile the most popular songs from the weddings we’ve featured in 2011. Some are everlasting favorites, while others are definitely newcomers to the scene. What songs did you play or will play at your wedding? We’d love to know!
