Some News

Happy Monday, all.

Just a quick note to let you know that today is a good, good day.

This morning, I received word that trendsetting wedding is among Bridetide’s list of the top 100 wedding blogs of 2010, again this year. Two years in a row – I am delighted!

Also, as mentioned, 2010 will bring many additions to the blog. Today, the list of venues has been posted. So Cal and Chicago brides-to-be may find this list especially helpful now, if you are pondering venues. Shortly, I will be adding NYC, San Francisco and other big city venues as well. These venues comprise the beautiful, the unique, the modern and the chic. To follow: look for more freebies + downloads on the blog this year as well!

Great Save-the-Dates For the Travel Bound + Concert Going Couple

I spotted these fun save the dates by Marit Hanson Weddings [another great Twitter find!]…

Are you + your fiance frequent concert goers? These concert ticket save-the-dates are a great way to make a fun statement…

Or are you having a destination wedding? Or do you + your fiance share a love for travel that you’d like to express via the save-the-dates?

These modern boarding pass save-the-dates are great [I think that is evident by the fact I seriously was just about to write "save the greats"]. I have seen tickets before but the detail of these is impressive…

Save-the-dates are often the first thing your guests will see – so make sure these reflect you as a couple. I think it is a great opportunity to have a little fun + veer from the norm.

Check out the Marit Hanson Weddings blog, Etsy Page+ Flickr photostream for more images + information.

Happy to Announce…

The blog redesign is done. I hope you like it. I made it extra colorful to reflect my personality + city life…and since I always love vibrant decor – and pops of color- at an event. I will be posting at least 2-3 times each day for a week , so you have extra eye candy since the blog had some downtime while redesigning. I apologize for the downtime, I did everything myself with the hosting help of my husband and the transition from typepad wasn’t as smooth as one would have liked. Also during this time, I had two out of town trips, a reunion, someone close to me admitted to the hospital and later ICU, out of town company, and a lot of work due for work. But alas, I am excited for the forthcoming posts…I will definitely be playing catch up with some great things – so look out. Have a lovely day wonderful readers and enjoy!

And lastly, I have the typepad site that was originally forwarded here to www.trendsettingwedding.com redirected but to save load time, please update all links here directly: http:// www.trendsettingwedding.com. Feel free to take one of the small logos, if you’d like! They are located at the bottom of the right sidebar.

Inspirational Words of Wisdom – no. 4

This errs more on the side of everyday advice + ettiquette than inspiration…but I thought I would share something I've learned to live by with you. It is very wedding appropriate as it can be applied to wedding planning (and relationships with vendors, etc).

"Don't assume people always know something you know. Whether it is something a person is doing wrong, something he or she should be doing, or even something that you know is a faux pas. It takes a stronger and smarter person to speak up and be honest than it does to sit on the sidelines not saying a word. By speaking up [in a nice way, of course], you are truly helping that person." – me

A colleague said to me, when talking about her colleague, "I can't believe she does that…" But if her colleague doesn't know what she is doing wrong, you can't really hold it against her, can you? And as a friendly side note, tweeting about it, putting it as your facebook status, etc. doesn't count as talking. :) You should find that when you open up and are honest, there is far less venting that you need to do.

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender
with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the
striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your
life you will have been all of these.
