If you adore details and the latest trends in weddings, then you will go bananas for Style Me Pretty’s Style Circle. Far more intimate and interactive than most of the bustling online communities for brides, Style Circle allows you to explore creative options for your wedding inspiration. In addition to maintaining a blog of your inspiring ideas, you can also create storyboards and interact with other Style Circle members on the forums for feedback and assistance. Here are some of the things I am loving from the community members:
From member Brancoprata’s blog:
I loved the softness of this palate crated by Lauren Renee:
This is a clip, the original inspiration board can be found here. With the innovative technology behind the Style Circle’s inspiration board creator, it credits the photographer, in this case the talented Carla Ten Eyck, as well as tags the individual images with a description and color breakdown. (Genius!)
There is so much to explore and participate in at the Style Circle, so if you haven’t had an opportunity to do so yet, check it out!
It is no secret that I am a geek. I love gadgets—I just can’t help it. When I was introduced to Canditto, I was super excited for brides who wanted to get the best, fun and candid moments from their wedding.
So what exactly is Canditto? Well it is no secret that with the influx of digital cameras (whether they are point and shoots or SLRs), your guests will be on the prowl getting shots of them with you, of you, or of other moments that you may not see through out the course of your day. While your fabulous wedding photographer (because I know you have chosen a fabulous wedding photographer after taking my impeccable advice) will document your day from their eyes, you also want to see what it is like from the eyes of family and friends. So now you can see the pictures of your college roommates reuniting and laughing over dinner or your grandmother lovingly holding a newborn family member moments before the prelude.
Simply plug Canditto into an outlet in a convenient area during your reception, and your guests can slip in their media cards from their digital cameras to download their images of your wedding for you to retrieve later. You will receive two thumb drives to download all of the images. What’s great is that Canditto will only download copies of your guests’ cards from the last 8 hours, to ensure that you get the pictures you want. So no more digital cameras on tables with the hopes of catching great pictures. Speaking of which…
Canditto is now having a fabulous program: if you bought disposable cameras (see these many reasons as to why disposable cameras will not do your wedding any justice) for your wedding to collect your guests’ pictures, Canditto will buy them back from you when you use their machine and apply it to your rental!
