What I’m Grateful For…
Posted by Margaret. Filed under Things we heart

I’m not sure how many people know the humble origins of Project Wedding. My husband (then fiance) Joe and I were talking about completely random things really late at night. Back then we were in full fledge wedding planning mode and both extremely excited and stressed out at the same time. Out of nowhere we got the idea to start a website where people could help each other plan their weddings. We envisioned a place where people can share their honest opinion and recommend to each other only the BEST wedding vendors, and share tips and picture inspiration with each other to help plan the wedding of their dreams. We were super excited about it and started dreaming up the details of Project Wedding the very next morning!

Three years later and I couldn’t have even DREAMED that our little wedding site would grow so much. From the first day with less than 10 visitors (including me, Joe, my two sisters, and my childhood best friend Kristen, our friend and co-founder Srini, and Srini’s mom)… to about 1 million monthly unique visitors today. The entire purpose and reason we started Project Wedding was to help people, and seeing people keep coming to our little website makes me hope that we did indeed reach our goal – to help people plan the event that marks the beginning of the rest of their lives. Stuff like this touches my heart.

Whitney Smith makes the most adorable cupcake stands ever. I bought one for my sister Kathy who makes handcrafted desserts for weddings and bridal showers. There are lots of new cute designs in her shop now! Hmm… my sister’s birthday IS coming up in a few months…

Sweet Tarts
Posted by Jeannie. Filed under bridal shower, Wedding Cakes

If you are a fruity sort of goddess – and live for things like fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, take a look at this sweet little project – the tart table! I think this is so adorable and a yummy idea for a shower or party. Could the tart table takeover the mini cupcake trend? Not sure, but tarts and pies are wonderful alternative idea.

Homemade Honeymoon Suite
Posted by Kate. Filed under Things we heart

Yes, you read that right.  If you haven’t seen this amazing DIY wedding featured around the web… well.. do check it out, it’s quite extraordinary.

My favorite part, however… is the homemade honeymoon suite… a canvas bell tent that they put on a cliff overlooking the sea.  How utterly romantic.
