helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank



Holy cow, y'all. It's SEPTEMBER. How did this happen? Hope you all had a most excellent summer… E and I returned from our vacay to the beach and are trying to settle back in to our apartment here in NYC. As we head into the fall I have to say I'm pretty excited for autumn in NYC, college football season, the return of my favorite TV shows and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Anywho, let's check out some of my favorite links from this week:


Y'all know how much I love me some LearnVest, so I couldn't be more excited to attend LearnVest Live! They are hosting two events this year– one in LA (Sept 24) & one in NYC (Oct 1)! All the details are here.  And as an EXCLUSIVE offer for BSB readers, anyone who wants to attend will get the “member only” pricing which is $25 per ticket. Sign up here for NYC and here for LA. I'll be attending the NYC event so I hope to see some BSB readers there!
