My Weddingbee Bibliography

In an attempt to be helpful and share my infinite wedding-planning knowledge with brides who haven’t yet reached The Other Side, I decided to put together a list of sources for all sorts of wedding-y things that I discovered when I was planning. Consider this my Weddingbee dissertation. Actually, consider this my bibliography.

Vendors: If you’re not in the Chicagoland area, this probably won’t be helpful.

Bridesmaids’ Dresses: I wanted non-conventional, non-matching dresses, and since I don’t do a lot of clothes shopping online, I didn’t know where to look. Here are the dresses they chose. Here are some shops that had a lot of good options:

  • David’s Bridal
  • Shabby Apple
  • ASOS
  • eShakti
  • Lulu’s (No one actually bought their dress here, but I recommend checking it out!)
  • 6PM (ditto)

Bulk Candy: For a price comparison, check out my original post.

  • Candy Warehouse
  • Oh Nuts
  • Bulk Candy Store
  • Candy Favorites
  • Amazon
  • Candy Direct
  • Candy Crate

    The cake looks so delicious and cute. It is the perfect wedding cake i believe, with it’s its simplicity and smooth texture, it adds elegance to the marriage.

    What a great post! I’m sure it will be really helpful for other brides-to-be in your area, and also just with planning and organization for anyone. I am in love with your cake and candy buffet!
