Mega Post 2010: The Wedding Shoebox!!

December 31, 2009  |  Southern Fete News

Happy New Year everyone!! I was planning on waiting to share this with you tomorrow but I couldn’t wait!!

I have been thinking, working on, tweaking this project for over 6 months now. It all started when I couldn’t wait to see what a wedding planner was going to do for her own wedding. My super creative, talented and supportive boyfriend Tyler thought I should turn that concept into a blog. I get plenty of excited giggles and squeals from friends just waiting to see what I’d do for my own wedding someday. Why not feature wedding planners from around the country? Ever since starting my own business I love hearing about women entreprenuers and their stories. I also love supporting their concepts anyway possible. Giving wedding planners a platform and brides the ultimate inspiration guide looked like a pretty fun project. And pair that with my love for inspiration boards? It was a no-brainer.

The Wedding Shoebox will be a place for wedding planners to submit photos of their ultimate wedding day. They’ll sift through what I like to think are shoeboxes of photos, experiences, weddings and inspiration and come up with one perfect concept. I’ll design up an inspiration board from their pictures and voila! Your sneak peak!!

On January 4 The Wedding Shoebox will launch to brides, weddings planners and other vendors across the nation. We’d love for you to share it with your friends, brides or vendors. Tweet it, blog it, etc. We want to start off with a bang!

I am so excited to see this project finally go from a crazy idea to reality. Thanks so much for the overwhelming response for Southern Fete and Butterscotch Press throughout the year. Y’all have propelled me forward and encouraged me to take on new challenges like this one!
