GSS Featured Vendor :: Rabbit Stop :: Handmade Men’s Neckties

It’s not new news that many Brides & Grooms are opting for suits instead of tuxes.  Opting for suits instead of tuxes, it allows the bride & groom a little more freedom to show off their personal style.  However, brides, we know how hard it can be to coordinate your wedding’s colors and find that necktie to match your Pomegranate bridesmaids dresses.  With that said, we would love to introduce you to a lil’ shop on Etsy named Rabbit Stop.  (We are so in LOVE with these Etsy shops!)  Rabbit Stop has every color and almost every design imaginable!  They offer handmade neck ties, scarves, and custom labeling.  And they are VERY affordable!  Most neck ties on their web shop are only $17.95!  WOW!  Who knew you could get a handmade neck tie for such a great price!!!  Stop by their store (by clicking here) and show them some love!

GSS Featured Vendor :: Trendy Knitting

Seriously. We can’t get enough of Etsy.  It’s pathetic, we know.  Pa-thet-ic.  We’re obsessed.  (Is there an Etsy Anonymous group somewhere???) But there’s so much greatness on there to be discovered!  Take Trendy Knitting for example… She makes the most gorgeous bridal bolero’s and shrugs.  AND at reasonable prices!  So, if you’re getting married in the fall, winter, or early spring, it would be great to have one of her items on hand.  You don’t have to wear it during the wedding, but it sure would keep you a lot warmer getting to and from the ceremony and reception.  She also does custom orders, so she might just be able to match your colors.  These could make great bridesmaid gifts as well!  Sigh… We’re hopelessly in love! 

And, for good measure, here’s a more casual design… to show that Trendy Knitting is WAY more than just bridal bolero’s and shrugs!  We’re talking seriously cute stuff here!
