May Weddings! -- UWIB Blog Hop!

The Unique Women in Business blog hop for May revolves around weddings.  Woo Hoo!!  Just right up my alley this month.  Please take the time to visit each person's blog and comment.  We spend so much time trying to ensure we get these blogs just perfect for you.

Today's brides have the ability to shop all over the world for their special dream ideas.  No longer are they limited to what they are able to make themselves or find locally.   Such inspiration when you search the web.  Searching Etsy alone gives the bride unlimited ideas in ways to make her special day unique.

I searched the UWIBteam on Etsy for wedding ideas and found some lovely items.  Erin's famous Carrie necklaces for bridesmaids are universal.

Then what about those 'do it yourself brides' here's some awesome yo-yos from the I Love YoYo shop.

Glitzy Events has Save the Date cards all the way through to your invitations and thank you notes.

 LM Creations has been making fabulous clutches, with many perfect for that special day; what about a nice set for the bridesmaids??

The recent Royal Wedding brought a spotlight to the fascinator and look what I found at Audrey Garden Lady's shop.

Now don't forget about the beloved pet.  The brides are now including their dogs in the wedding scheme in some manner.  They should be well dressed and who better than Suzanne at Crazy for Collars to dress them.

Just searching through Etsy with the uwibteam tag will bring many ideas for the inquisitive bride.  Now, I want to unveil my latest bridal necklace.  This would be great for the bride or the mother of the bride.

I am excited to see how this one goes over with the brides.  Now, let's all take a minute to hop to each blog on this list and leave a comment.  Let them know you read their blog and give them some input.  It is fun to see what everyone comes up with for this blog hop.

Contact me if you would like to join this inventive group of women.  We love to add new people to our group.  We learn from each other and support each and every person in this group.  Just love women supporting women!!
