Autographer

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!

    My mother used to wear watches a lot, and she had a rather extensive collection (including this rad vintage-looking Mickey Mouse one she picked up when I was a kidlet in Disneyworld). I always admired the way they looked on her -- and mind you, this was before the advent of cellphones-as-clocks. There's something very classic and put together about a man or a woman…

    We know that invitations are one of the first elements of your wedding that convey the look and feel guests can expect on the big day. We also know that wedding invitations can be super pricey. And holy bananas, are there options! Foil, letterpress, embossed, pocket, flat, square, shapes, laser cut ... where do you even begin to begin? Made with PicMonkey Well, you can…

    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…

    Remember the Hourglass Angel giveaway we did in June? Welp, you must because you guys made it so popular the lovely folks over there wanted to do a redux. That's love, y'all. As we discussed last time, good support on your wedding day is pretty necessary -- strapless bras are all well and good, but they won't necessarily hold you in when you're getting down…

    Upcycling and being a Broke-Ass go hand-in-hand. Add some hot color, fun designs, eco-friendliness and an Etsy seller? Looks like we've got a BAB match made in heaven with Topaz and Opal. Kim, the mastermind behind Topaz and Opal, has a history of teaching, but a passion for making these super fun, bright baubles. Her decoupage skillz give bright new life to regular items (check…

    When I was planning my first wedding, I had a very specific idea in mind for my shoes: I desperately wanted peep-toe, kitten-heel slingback pumps in turquoise and white polka dot. I'll go ahead and let you Google that to see what you come up with ... ... ... A whole lot of nothing, right? Yeah, that's what I got too, and not much has…
