Treat your tootsies (and your bridesmaids’ tootsies) to style and comfort with J*Flops! J*Flops personally designs each pair of flip flops with a distinct style that fits the customer’s personality.

Budget Idea for Dresses: Think Prom

by Azure

As a mom, I hate that kids’ clothes look so adult these days. As a short shopper on a budget, I love it! It’s one of the few benefits of being short, kids’ clothes and shoes cost less than adult clothes and shoes. I’ve found a few places where the smallest adult size and largest kid size are identical, except for pricing. Even if they aren’t short, your bridesmaids can take advantage of a similar “youth discount.” Instead of looking for bridesmaids’ dresses in bridal...

Always a Blogsmaid: Spice Up Outdoor Wedding with Parasols for Your Bridesmaids

by Azure

About Always a Blogsmaid I've been wild about parasols for some time. They are a bridesmaids' (and a bride's) best friend. Not only are they flirty, potentially colorful and fun, but at an outdoor ceremony they serve as both decor and bridal party flowers... and (sometimes) cheaper, too! I went nuts for these personalized parasols at Tange Designs. Parasol bargains abound at Pearl River Market, where you can go solid or patterned, paper or silk. And the look is lovely, especially...

Always a Blogsmaid: Long Distance Maid of Honor

About Always a Blogsmaid The Question: I'm living abroad and my wedding will be in Seattle. My closest friend from growing up lives in Atlanta, but I have several other close friends who live in the Seattle area that I wanted in my wedding party as well. Knowing that I'm going to need help, should I ask one of those girls to be my MOH (Maid of Honor), even though I'm much closer with my friend in Atlanta? I don't want them to be angry with me for having someone else and then them...

Happy Monday Savvy Scoopers. Here in Chicago, this weekend had all the typical spring weather, sunny and warm one minute, cold and rainy the next.

Here’s an idea to lessen the threat of an impending cold front. Why not get your bridesmaids gorgeous pashima scarves to wear over their dresses. If you’re one of those...

by Azure

Maybe because it’s Passover, and I’m not allowed to eat certain things, but I’m drooling over these lingerie cupcakes from Two Parts Sugar. Have you ever seen anything more perfect for a bridal shower? Wedding cakes tend to be beautiful, classic, and classy, but a bridal shower cake (or cupcake) has room to be a little more original, and a little more personal. Let’s see, if I were designing cupcakes to represent me, I’d put tiny cups of coffee on top of each one. If I were...

by Azure

Special Feature by Zirconique Jewelry can be the perfect gift for your bridesmaids – you know they will love it and re-use it. If you’re concerned about the cost, you should consider getting cubic zirconia, an inexpensive alternative to traditional diamonds. There are many grades of cubic zirconia.

Good bridesmaids don’t need jewelry to be happy… But it doesn’t hurt.

by Azure

I always think jewelry is a smart bridesmaid gift. You know your girls will get use out of it, and it gives you some leeway with your bridesmaids' dresses: You can choose different styles to suit each one's figure best, and then use the jewelry to unify their look. And let's face it: A bride who makes sure each of her besties gets a pearl necklace on her wedding day is going to be a popular woman for years to come. I love the bridesmaid collection at Anna Bellagio. It's got...

Bridesmaids’ Luncheon: Giving Back to the Girls Who Give to You

by Azure

It’s an occupational hazard that I look at almost everything in terms of weddings! A friend was showing me these dishes at Rosanna Inc the other day and I said “They would be perfect for a bridesmaid’s luncheon.” She had zero idea what I was talking about. So, if you’re similarly baffled, here’s the scoop: A bridesmaid’s lunch is a bridal shower in reverse. You take your bridesmaids (and any other important women in the wedding party) out to a nice old-fashioned...

Glow on your big day with Carey & Co.’s tantalizing scrubs

The gals at Carey & Co. were nice enough to send us Savvy Scoopers a sample of their INGREDIENTS Ultra-Moisturizing Citrus and Spice scrub, and after using it once, I was hooked (the scrub is still being held hostage in my shower at home!). With the sweet orange essential oil, ground cinnamon, and crushed cloves, I was treated to the aroma-therapeutic effects I’ve only experienced at a pricey spa- I felt more awake and rejuvenated than I have in a long time. Truly a pampering...

by Azure

You’ve probably given some thought to your bridesmaids’ gifts, or at least put it on your list of things to think about, but what about your littlest attendants? Do yourself a favor, get them a dual-purpose gift, something they’ll love and something to keep them busy at your reception. This is especially important if they’ll be the only kids at your wedding. I love Land of Nod’s “I’m not bored anymore art jar.” It has everything you need to keep a child busy at an...

Bridal Shower Games: Think outside the Toilet Paper Roll

by Azure

As you may have noticed, I’ve been thinking about bridal showers lately. Maybe it’s because I recently co-hosted a baby shower. Much to my chagrin, the other hostesses insisted on a game involving adult men, diapers, and baby bottles filled with beer. Luckily, the canapés needed restocking at just that moment. I don’t like games. I’m not a good sport. If anyone had come near me with a roll of toilet paper at my bridal shower I would have run screaming from the room. But, I...
