A great new article written by guest writer, Melanie Farkas! She compiled some really great bridesmaid gift ideas for our readers...creative ones and very simple ones that take no time at all.

My Website Success Story
After countless emails of questions about me, the website and how it all works I finally got around to building an "about me" page of sorts. Learn all about my website success story and how I quit my day job and do this instead. Who knows, maybe one of you will be inspired to do something similar!

Featured Article: Big News!

Big news around here? Time to share my first personal first son was born! He was born in September so he is already five months old, I can't believe it has taken so long to announce! Don't worry, DIY weddings will still continue on as it has been for the last 2...going on 3 years! Already there have been jokes about creating a "do it yourself baby" site...hmmm, there might be something to that!

Okay, but back to is a GREAT time to get yourself to the stores at the end of this week. Valentine's Day stuff will be on clearance and much of it would make for great decorations or crafting materials for favor boxes, etc. Last year I scored some votive holders for 50 cents each.

Reader Tip: Online Bridesmaid Dress Creator

Kerianne wrote in this excellent reader website suggestion last week:

The website has a place for brides to design their own bridesmaid dresses (choose neckline, skirt style, etc) and then purchase them (for a very reasonable price). They don't have traditional bridal dresses, but they do make dresses in white and ivory that might be perfect for some brides.

That is a great site, thanks! I played around with it and it is pretty addictive! Super affordable too.
