Wrapping it up for the Week!

Hello friends! It’s time to say goodbye to another week…they are flying by these days, I swear! Krista and I have been extremely busy, and while I don’t want to give too much away, we want to prepare you for some big changes coming to East Coast Bride! First off, we are working with a fabulous logo designer, Jamie of Fresh Lavender Designs, to create a custom logo for ECB. We are also working with developers to revamp our vendor guide and to give ECB and brand new custom look! We ordered adorable new business cards from Minted {if you haven’t seen them yet, be sure to check them out on facebook…they are seriously super cute} and we may have a few other tricks up our sleeves so promise to stick with us, okay?
