Vendor Pick: Songi Bridal

When walking through Old Town Pasadena by Violet's Cakes, across the street I see white. I see sparkle. I see wedding dresses. The bridal salon is called Songi. I found that it's not just a bridal store, Songi is a dress designer. The dresses are gorgeous, classic, and not too expensive. The dresses can be found not only in california, but also in Nevada, New York, and Ohio. Take a look.  

Vendor Pick: Event Essentials

I am a sucker for anything sparkly. I ran across these beautiful invitations that are custom made and just had to share my find. The Event Essentials is a coordination company, but they also specialize in custom stationary. They make everything from invitations and save the dates to menus, programs, and table numbers. Here are some of their designs.

Recommendation: Wedding Magazines

I'll be honest, after coordinating weddings for a few years I learned my lesson and don't buy the traditional magazines that many brides do like The Knot or Brides. I have found several magazines that I LOVE!!!

So, if you're looking for a magazine with a ton of ads and few real weddings or actual advice then don't proceed. But, if you're looking for a magazine with tons of photos of real weddings and inspiration created by top wedding professionals and lots and lots of photos and less ads, then take a look.
