Timeless Paper … October 29, 2009

jacki allen’s Kentucky Bride is doing a TON of photo shoots for our upcoming issues … and we can’t wait to show you the spreads, but you’ll have to wait just a tad longer.

Some of the shoots are about … shoes, boutonnieres, flower girls dresses, traditional vs. rock star hair and make up, etc …

One of the photo shoots that will be in the April 2010 issue is about TABLE SCAPES … i’m so excited!  I don’t want to give out all the details or tell you too much, but one of the products we used for a table designed by yours truly were these amazing name cards from Timeless Paper.  She was so excited that she already posted about it on her blog … HERE on October 18th … how fun! 

Here are a few of the designs she offers …


timeless paper - butterfly

timeless paper - leaf


timeless paper - snowflake

Don’t you just LOVE them?  What are you’re favorite designs?  There are so many ways that you can use them … how would you?  i’d love to hear all your thoughts …

celebrate with paper …

Busy, Busy, Busy … October 19, 2009

Okay, I’m getting ready to break the number one rule of blogging … “So sorry I haven’t blogged in a while”!  I know, you’re not suppose to apologize and you’re just suppose to get right back on your blog and do the next post, but since it’s been almost one month {i can’t believe it} – I feel the need to say … SORRY!

So, just a quick post on what we’ve been doing and then the blogging will resume back to normal.

Kentucky Bride Magazine – We are moving fast and furious for our January 2010 issue.  We have done four photo shoots so far this issue … shoes {the photos are AMAZING}, fitness, treats, and make-up.  We have a few more photo shoots to do, but will give details later.  On Wednesday, we will be shooting some great table-scapes for our April 2010 issue on a private horse farm in KY!  I’m hoping to post a “behind the scene” photo from this shoot – I can’t wait!  Don’t forget … follow us on facebook @ Kentucky Bride Magazine  – follow us on twitter @kybridemag – pick up your current issue ONLINE, Joseph-Beth, Barnes & Noble, Borders and starting in Jan 2010, we will be in Walmart, Target, Walgreens and more throughout the whole state of KY!

Kentucky Bride Bridal Show – We have been super busy getting all of our advertising ready for our next bridal show on Sunday, January 10, 2010 at the Lexington Convention Center.  We will be on TV, radio, billboards and all over the internet  – so make sure to look for us!  We have also been getting all of the AMAZING wedding professionals in Central Kentucky signed up and posted online.  To view wedding professionals that you will be able to meet at the show, please visit us online at www.kybride.com … And for all you wedding professionals that would like to be in the show, please feel free to contact me to get all the info!

jacki, wedding planning – WOW – what a fall we have had and it’s still going … our last wedding of the year is on November 8th!  we’ve been working with our 2010 brides, who are mostly out-of-state brides who have decided to have Kentucky weddings and we are so THRILLED!  We have visited venues to see their renovations/updates and even visited a few new venues that will be available for 2010 {look for their vendor spotlights in the coming months}.  We have been creating, building and making available some wonderful items for weddings … it’s all under wraps for right now, but will be giving details and photos in the near future … these are going to be FABULOUS!  Make sure you follow us on facebook @ jacki allen’s Kentucky Bride!
