Rubber Stamp Love - EmilieFriday

DIY-ing your own invitations or save-the-dates? Here's a simple way to get the classy look of calligraphy without breaking the bank. EmilieFriday customizes hand-calligraphy stamps by use of red rubber and laser cuts, and if you're in a hurry, she can send you a free proof within 3-7 business days. At only $30-40, these stamps are a fantastic steal. Plus, it prevents you from having to re-write your return address 200 times.

I like the butterfly one especially - it's perfect for a casual garden wedding.

Silver Tweet!

This is the cutest necklace! It's two lovebirds sitting on a branch - how sweet and adorable without being nauseating =p I generally don't like jewelry. (In fact, I wear only two pieces of jewelry everyday - my engagement ring and my wedding band.) But for these little birdies, I might make an exception! For only $20, this is quite the steal and a sweet bridesmaid gift for your gals. Go pick it up via PiperBlue on Etsy.

Free Wedding Widgets!

Yes, I know - does a bride really need to have a countdown clock until the day of her wedding? NO - she is probably already stressed out and/or excited and literally counting down the hours she has left to finish her planning. BUT sometimes the groom needs to feel the bride's sense of urgency and for those times...this free wedding widget is super helpful if planted on his facebook/blog.

For myself...I've created the "Anniversary Counter" to remind my hubby *hint hint* =)
