helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Okay friends, I know I've been MIA here on the blog for a while and I've not done a links + things type post in weeks and weeks! Things have been quite busy as I've been working towards the launch of my new paper company, Jessica Bishop Paperie! I'm planning an October launch so everything is crazy at my house at the moment. 🙂  This week, however I have some exciting and relevant things to share in the world of weddings so here goes:

My friend Susanna over at K.i.s.s. Wedding is hosting a Love in Photos contest that I would love to see a BSB reader win!! 🙂 All you have to do is choose a photo of you and your sweetie (or you can nominate a couple you know!) that best visually represents love and submit it on K.i.s.s. Wedding's facebook page! The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges (including little ol' me) and will win $200! Great to have a little extra cash when planning a wedding, amiright? You can get more details about the contest here.


Bridal Style CES329 – original price: $850, sale price: $249.99
Bridesmaid Style 84800 – original price: $139, sale price: $29.99

    Would it be okay to submit a photo with a watermark on the photo or would you require a photo without the watermark?

  • I want to ask… Is it okay if the couple doesn’t live in the USA??
