Little Black Dress

Were you a bridesmaid in a wedding and have no intention on wearing the dress any more?

Did you go to your company’s New Year’s Eve gala and don’t think you’ll wear that long, sparkling gown again?

While browsing Pinterest this morning I discovered a company called  Newlymaid. This interesting company offers a solution to those who have participated in weddings or other special occasions and have no use for their dresses any longer.

Newlymaid allows you to browse and purchase a new little black dress at the manufacturer price that can be used for ANY occasion whether it be for work, a casual outing or a date. The really cool part about Newlymaid is that along with your new dress, they send along a prepaid mailer for one dress to be donated to the charity,Clothes4Souls, or recycled which means to repurpose the fabric for the creation of other products. Not only are you giving to charity, you are getting a hot little black dress that you can use over and over again.

A few requirements and exceptions are: the dress must be in good condition with no pulls, tears, stains or other blemishes. All zippers and clasps must be in good working order. Also, they do not accept bridal gowns, flower girl or quinceanera dresses. So look through your closets and see what dresses you may have that you’ll never wear again and replace it with that little black dress.


Let’s get this party started!

Dinner is wrapping up.

The DJ is still playing easy listening tunes.

You’re ready to get up and dance when finally you hear…

The Wobble…

(Check out this cute video of the entire bridal party participating)

The Cupid Shuffle… 

The Cha Cha Slide…

(This video provides the lyrics/dance steps)

These are just a few commonly played songs amongst  many others to get the party started at your wedding reception.

What songs did you or would you play at your wedding reception to get the crowd on the dance floor?

Happy Planning!

Do you have family members or friends that can’t make it to your big day?

What do you do?

No matter what date you choose for your wedding, the reality is that you can’t accommodate everyone. Everyone will not be able to make it.

Normally, these unfortunate guests would have to wait for photos or video to come back which could take weeks, sometimes months. Due to advancements in technology and the world-wide web, this is no longer the only option. You can now live stream your wedding on the internet!

Live streaming, also referred to as web casting, will allow everyone to be able to “attend” no matter what the situation. It is a perfect option for international or destination weddings so those who can’t make can still be a part of your day.

There are several ways to accomplish live streaming and below are a few links to companies that offer this service (you are by no means limited to what is listed here):

I Do Stream Packages start at $199

Marry Me Live Contact the company directly for package information

UStream Free

Webcast My Wedding  Packages starting at $189

Most of these companies provide services that range from full-service event live streaming to do-it-yourself options putting the power to wedding web cast within the hands of the customer.

Feel free to browse each one and see which suits your needs best if this is an option for you. After committing to a service, check out this post courtesy of Offbeat Bride for some live streaming tips to help avoid any mishaps.

Happy streaming!
