Brenda's Wedding Blog | Fresh Ideas for Creative Weddings

wedding blog + planning guide for creative weddings | inspiration for DIY Brides

Brenda's Wedding Blog is your online resource for planning your dream elegant wedding. Helping you find the "wow" in weddings.

This and That . . . plus, a "french inspired" favorite

Today's "This and That..." starts off with two favorite items {ceramic Paris signs} from the etsy shop Paris Chic Boutique. After seeing the movie "Julie and Julia" the other night, my mind has been on all things parisian. These shabby chic Eiffel Tower signs are so cute and would make a lovely addition to a bridal shower package. And, if you'd like to use them for party favors, you can contact Paris Chic Boutique for special pricing.

This Week's Favorite . . .
shop for these signs and more at Paris Chic Boutique

And, now onto a mega list of wedding sales, discounts and giveaways.
And, please check back as Eye Candy Friday is coming up later this morning.
