Affiliate Disclaimer NewThings Remembered Champagne FlutesChoosing what to give your bridal brigade as a thank you for standing by your side (and making sure you were nice and toasty during your bachelor/ette bash) is no small decision. You want to make sure it’s something meaningful, but preferably that they’d actually use, too. You don’t want to spend a bajillion dollars, but you don’t want to go Dollar Store cheap, either. Ideally, it would be a worthwhile keepsake with a low cheese factor that would stir up fond memories of you each time they put it to use.

Things Remembered Personalized Gifts for the NewlywedsThere are a million and a half options out there, but we love our homies at Things Remembered for their decades-long (we’re talking like 40 years here, y’all) reputation as a go-to for unique keepsakes and stylish one-of-a-kind gifts. From gifts for your girls to baubles for the boys to awesome trinkets for the ‘rents, Things Remembered has a huge variety of options for everyone you need to give a little somethin’ somethin’ to as a thanks. While we still remember them as a store in the mall where we could get Grandpa Joe an engraved pen, we’re loving them now for personalized colorful tumblers, gold-stamped journals and sleek flasks (stay tuned for giveaway!).

There’s a helluva lot to be said for convenience, too, and with over 600 stores nationwide and in Canada, and the option to buy online and pick up in the store later, Things Remembered pretty much has that on lock. And they tend to have some pretty killer deals:

    How ’bout a whole new perspective on your wedding day … like, literally? Autographer, who makes rad hands-free cameras that are mountable, clippable and wearable and operate on a long-life battery, is having a huge contest. Like, huge y’all. Like, help-you-with-your-photography huge (and there might be a trip in there, too).

    See, Autographer’s little cameras can film all day and use sensors and algorithms to determine when to take photos — that is, when they’re not recording for time-lapse purposes, because they can totally do that. I, for one, would LOVE to see one of your weddings filmed in time-lapse from, say, your partner’s perspective? OMG. OR: Have y’all seen that wedding video with the whiskey bottle being passed around? You could totally do that with Autographer, too. And I’ll totally stand behind you on that decision. Any which way you cut it, Autographer is a great way to incorporate a new view on your wedding day. You can totally have all the fun with this.

    One amazing couple (so, it should totally be a BAB, #duh) will win 3 Autographer cameras to use on your wedding day, £500 (~ $794 USD) toward the wedding photographer of their choosing + (YOU GUYS) a 3-night mini-moon in Paris with transportation to the city and accommodation at a 5-star hotel included int he prize package.

    The contest is open internationally and is SUPER easy to enter: Follow Autographer on Instagram and Twitter. Upload your fave couple selfie — make sure it’s totally representative of y’all! — tag @Autographer and add #InTheNameOfLove. Srsly, how easy is that?

    For all the entry details, head over to the contest page on Autographer’s blog. Winner will be announced Christmas Day (Dec. 25) via Autographer’s social channels.

    Get on it, BABs and happy snapping!

    Let's talk wedding flowers. They can be super pricey, but they're so pretty and damn, they smell good. But paying a florist -- or floral designer -- can often cost considerably more than a pretty penny. And DIYing can be one huge asspain. Which is why I'm super in love with our partner, Bloominous. As a less-than-stellar DIY-er, and a broke-ass, Bloominous is the kind…

    We're big into food here at The Broke-Ass Bride. If you follow Dana's other blog, LaRueBlog, then you've seen the slew of Korean food she's been cooking up. And myself? Well, I cook every night -- but some nights that "cooking" is just mac & cheese. Most nights, however, I try to get a little creative and a lot delicious. And that usually involves a…

    While it's the raddest to now have the capabilities to "thumb" through hundreds of photos with a click of a button, rather than with your actual thumb which could wind up calloused and sore after such a thing, an unfortunate byproduct is that said photos -- once shared on ALL the social media -- then languish on your hard drive for the rest of time. Insert…
