Traveler’s Joy was one of the awesome sponsors who made possible the NYC engagement shoot giveaway last fall, and they’re a great resource for anyone looking for an alternative to the traditional wedding registry.

Traveler’s Joy allows members to register for any portion of their honeymoon, from flights and hotel stays, to snorkeling trips and spa treatments, and they have the lowest service fee of any full service honeymoon registry. And, when you register with them before April 15, you’re automatically entered to win a 7-night all-inclusive vacation to Jungle Bay Resort & Spa in Dominica! So if you’re already stocked up on pots and pans, Traveler’s Joy may be the perfect registry option for you.

As much as I absolutely love veils, lately I’m finding myself drawn to pretty headbands and flower headpieces, like these lovelies by Krystle of Feathers & Frills. She calls them confections, which sounds so perfect for such sweet and charming pieces. Here are just a few of the pretties you’ll find in her Etsy shop.

Hop over to Feathers & Frills’ shop to see all of the other bridal adornments that Krystle has listed – there’s plenty more where these came from. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll have the hardest time choosing just one!

Brion Hopkins pretty much summed up everything I think you should know about him in these two sentences:

“I shoot film and digital, and I will travel anywhere to shoot a wedding (including Cuba, I would go to Cuba for free actually). Also, I love chocolate chip cookies.”

He left out the part about how he also takes freaking awesome photos, but I think they speak for themselves…

I couldn’t resist including one of Brion’s polaroids:

Want more? Go check out his blog and his website, and then sign him up quick, because now that the word is out I’m pretty sure he’s going to be all booked up in no time…

Today, I’m excited to have a chance to highlight one of Snippet & Ink’s long-time sponsors, and an awesome company: Brilliant Earth. They make beautiful engagement rings (and wedding bands, and earrings, etc.), you can work with them to create a custom ring, and they’re known for excellent customer service. All of these things are reason enough to buy your wedding jewelry from them. But the thing I love most about Brilliant Earth is their commitment to ethical diamonds, cruelty-free jewelry, and eco-friendly precious metals. Here are a few of the gorgeous rings they offer…
{These two custom designed rings feature ethical sapphires.}
{Brilliant Earth offers both contemporary and vintage-inspired styles, all of them conflict-free.}

Brilliant Earth also donates 5% of their profits to communities impacted by the diamond trade. Learn more about their mission here, and spend some time looking through the beautiful pieces in their online store. Even if you already have your engagement ring and wedding band, it’s a great place to find classic diamond earrings, or maybe a Tahitian-pearl pendant, to wear on your wedding day.
