 Happy Monday, BABs! I hope your Halloweekend was wonderful and amazing and so wildly full of fun and candy. For today’s Get Inspired styleboard, I thought I’d get a jump on the holiday season and the soon-to-be abundance of greens and reds and holly jolly that will surround us everywhere we go. Jade is a really striking color of green that will pop in photos, but is a little softer in shade than kelly green, making it a little easier for a variety of skin tones to pull off. Taupe as a neutral would look amazing here and there to tone down the high-energy jade, and ivory isn’t as stark as white so it blends well with the other two.

    Happy Friday, everyone! I’ll be traveling to Charlotte, N.C., in the morning for a meeting with some of our partners and to see a friend, and Dana and Paul are officially on the second leg of their epic honeymoon tour, chilling in a great hotel in Seoul. But I’d never take off without leaving you with some great deals and discounts to help you kick your weekend off right. From Anthro to Tradesy and a super awesome deal on wedding dresses for those of you in the Southern California area, this Ten for the Weekend has got the goods to make your wallet happy.

    Ten for the Weekend: Stock up on Essentials and Wedding Gown Sale Alert for SoCal Brides

    1. I know I know, Halloween isn’t even here yet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stock up on Thanksgiving cookware. Sur la Table is having a sale on various essentials — from roasting pans to immersion blenders to spiral slicers.

    2. Man, there are few things better than a good dress sale, but one of those few things is a discount on already well-priced items. Boohoo.com is knocking 15% off their dresses until 10/19.

    3. You know what costs a lot? Wedding stationery. You know who’s taking $40 off orders of $99+ for new customers? Wedding Paper Divas, that’s who (when you enter WPD40 at checkout until 10/28).

    Wedding Paper Divas Enchanting Forever Invitations

    I’m loving these “Enchanting Forever” invites.

    4. Discounts on discounts are a great thing, y’all. BCBG is taking an extra 30% off final sale items. Now that doesn’t suck.

    5. Designer shoes and accessories and getting to feel like one of the cool kids? That’s how Cole Haan rolls with their 30% off Friends and Family deal until 10/21.

    6. Need to stock up on basics? Anthropologie is having a 30% sale off select sweaters, tees and pants for a limited time.

    7. Guys, have you checked out Dessy’s sale section? They just added three different styles of twist wrap dresses, as well as a whole gang of accessories. Go on, get on it!

    8. Call all beer lovers! Craft Beer Club is skimming $10 bucks off when you gift a membership of 3 months or more this holiday season (until 12/31) when you use code iSave5.

    9. Do you guys know Tradesy? You should. It’s like, the greatest consignment store / thrift shop, ever. Like, serious designer duds, but previously worn / used (gently), and therefor cheaper than normal. And right now Tradesy is having an accessory sale. So you know, do it.

    10. SoCal Brides, this one’s just for you! Unique Vintage’s real, actual brick-and-mortar store in Burbank is having a real life sample sale this Sunday. Check out our Pinterest board for a sampling of the gowns on sale!

    Photo courtesy of bridesmaiddressaleca Dear Heather, I need to find navy, knee-length, one-shoulder bridesmaid dresses. The catch - under $100 and something that stores carry. My maid of honor lives out of state and wants to try it on before she buys, and I totally agree! I've heard too many horror stories of online dresses not fitting right! Help me, please!

    Brides Against Breast Cancer is an amazing charity that we've partnered with--they accept new and used gown donations, which they then send on roadshows across the country to sell to brides like you for an average price of $600! They also do "Run and Renew" 5K events as fundraisers, and every year, they raise around a million dollars for those impacted by cancer. Incredible, no?…

    50Peach.com | Atlanta Bridal Boutiques - A Peachy Review

    Many of my 50Peach.com readers have asked me what Atlanta bridal boutiques I've visited and/or especially "Did you go to the one on TV???".   It's worth mentioning that there are TONS of bridal boutiques in Atlanta and that these are the five that I personally chose to visit. And of course, that all opinions expressed here are my own. Alfred Angelo - Dunwoody, GA -…

    I found my dress! If there is one part of planning a wedding that makes it feel real, I'd say that is up there. I had never even been dress shopping with anyone before (and I've been in quite a few weddings), so it was definitely a little overwhelming. Having seen far too many episodes of Say Yes the Dress, I planned my entourage very…
