And this wedding sign is a great way to help show guests their way to the wedding - isn't it cute?
And these parking and loo signs!

Here's an idea that I wanted to share that's on the pricer-but-fabulous side of the album spectrum. Our wedding photographer shared this link when I asked her about our album options and I fell in love immediately. I really want to save up and create one of the family history books. Their new accordion books could work well for wedding or honeymoon photos, as you can see in the samples below from their blog. Check out their site - I promise you won't be disappointed.

As this weekend of visiting family came to a close, we took a detour on Saturday before coming back to DC. We visited West Chester, PA to exchange a wedding gift at Simon Pearce - an artist known for his handmade glass and pottery.
This is the glass bowl we had received (the smaller of the two). While it was nice, we had received so many bowls, that we decided to exchange it for something we'd get a bit more use out of.
We exchanged the bowl for four hammered metal chargers and a spoon rest. So we can only have two people over for dinner : ) which is just perfect for now anyway in our teeny tiny place!

The winner of the Sea Horse Necklace is: LEXI
Yay! Congrats! Please email me here to collect your prize.
To see the list of all your and my favorite beaches, go here.
If I were to do our wedding day all over again (and we happened to have unlimited wedding funds), I would wear these for our ceremony - instead of the incredibly uncomfortable pair of white heels I wore and took off immediately after we finished at the church. ($149)
And how about this cute Paisley Purse from Cath Kidston? It'd be cute for bridesmaids or even for the bride! (£10.00)
We begin with TWO prizes! How cool is that? You have a chance to win one of two necklaces designed by Courtney Anne Designs. Both are sterling silver 16" necklaces. The first, "White Sand Dollar," has a black freshwater pearl, white opal swarovski crystal, and sand dollar charm. The second, "Silver Seahorse," has a white freshwater coin pearl, black diamond swarovski crystal, and sea horse charm. Both are just beachy and oh-so-cute!
Necklace # 1 - "White Sand Dollar"
Necklace # 2 - "Silver Seahorse"
The first will be given away here at my Big Fat Italian wedding, the other at just Beachy in the city. You're invited to enter both to double your chances of winning. You don't have to enter both, but one name will be drawn from my Big Fat Italian wedding's comments, the other from Beachy's comments.
So, for your chance to win: leave a comment noting your favorite product in Courtney's Etsy shop and also include what your favorite beach is - it can be anywhere in the world. We just want to hear the beachy spots you all love to visit!
You have until Thursday, November 20th to post comments. Winners will be announced on Friday, November 21st. Thank you to Courtney for this amazing giveaway! : )
