Wedding Wednesday Sale & Myrtle Beach Love

Already half way through the 12 Days of Christmas Sale! Phew! Let me tell you, this has been one busy week.  Ornament orders are off the chain right now and I’m pumping them out as fast as I can.

But in honor of this week’s “Wedding Wednesday”, today’s sale is for all the brides-to-be out there….get 20 FREE small save the date magnets when you buy 100!

These can be customized with your favorite picture (maybe one of those awesome engagement photos??) and include your name and date or wedding location. If you already have your Save the Dates picked out well…these make great Out of Town bag gifts too!

Sale is good until midnight…when the Day 7 sale will be revealed.  Woohoo…this is so much fun. It’s kind of been like playing Secret Santa! =)

On to today’s Real Wedding feature…

Our beautiful oceanside couple today, Kristen and Michael were married over the summer in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the intimate Island Vista Resort. The lovely Brooke Christl was there to photograph all their love and precious moments.

I adore the intimate beach ceremony set-up and fun beachy-themed decor intertwined throughout their wedding day.  One of the sweetest things Kristen and Mike did was paid a beautiful tribute to Kristen’s brother Ricky who introduced these two to one another when he and Mike were great friends throughout high school. After Ricky passed away in 2000, Kristen and Mike lost touch for 8 years. They later found each other through the infamous Facebook, and started dating. Ricky’s presence was very much felt throughout the wedding day.

They had the awesome steel band, Pantasia Steel Bandthere to keep the party jammin’ into the night.

Such a fun beach-themed cake and flip-flop escort card holders!

Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone!

Keep Calm and Cyber On…

We no longer fret when Black Friday is over because not only do we have Small Business Saturday now, we of course have Cyber Monday!

But wait- before we talk Cyber Monday, did anyone actually go out Friday? It was C-R-A-Z-Y! Oh yes…your girl Mel was out there. It’s been tradition for my sister and I to go out and bare the cold, the crazies, even after many years of coming home disappointed by the lack of any real deals.  But we can’t remember a time it was so bad!  Now that so many stores open up at midnight its so much easier for peeps to stay awake and dive into the shops, than to go to sleep and wake your butt up at 4am to go shopping.

AND I was pleasantly surprised when I happened to be one of the first 50 people in line to purchase something from Rack Room Shoes and receive a door buster gift. My gift? Drum roll please….

A freakin’ YEAR’s worth of shoes! Can you believe it?! I was in total shock and then immediately went into “Oh shizzle” mode because after my sister pretty much “announced” my winnings to the very crowded, prize demanding mob around us, I did my best to place my voucher back in my purse as inconspicuously as I could before walking back to the car and then prayed we didn’t get jumped!

So you can imagine after that was our first stop in the run, it gave us the energy we needed to forge ahead and scope out the rest of the late night shopping scene.

Our First Christmas Ornament

Okay- back to Cyber Monday! In case you havent been following along, I launched my first “12 Days of Christmas” sale last Friday.  Each day I’m sharing a new deal, discount, and freebies to my new Etsy shop, Oceanside Designs!
