Today, we’re sharing some new websites we think you should know about. My BFF, Nicki Clendening, owner of Scout Designs NYC, has found a new way to spread her exquisite taste and collectible items with her new shop, Beetle.

Ever since I’ve known Nicki she has always had an eye for objects, and she is an avid traveller and collector. So, Beetle is now a place you can go to shop her finds. The above is a sample of some of my favorites.

Since I’m on my last week of no carbs for lent, this amazing Zucchini Pasta recipe from Thebault For Two is at the top of my list. The author of this relatable and approachable cooking blog is the sister of one of my favorite fun brides, and I’m loving following along for some of the family recipes.

We just celebrated  with Hampden Clothing for their 10 year anniversary.  Hampden is a fashion forward hot spot here in Charleston, and she happens to carry one of my most favorite designers- Co. While in the store recently, I spotted this sequined stunner by Co, and thought it could be the most amazing top for a mother of a bride, or with fabulous white formal pants for a bride’s friday night ensemble.

Hope you check out some of our newest favorites on the scene.

We’re all about spreading the love at Soirée (it’s pretty much the point of what we do…!) so we thought we would share a few of our favorite wedding sites with you to inspire you for the week ahead. We know when it it comes to planning your wedding you can never have enough ideas, and wanted to shoutout a few of our picks. Enjoy!

Style me Pretty

Style me Pretty was created by Abby Larson in 2007 and is a beautiful source of inspiration for any stylish bride. We especially love the destination weddings section since beyond wedding inspiration it also serves as an ongoing list of places to add to our travel list!

The Bride's Cafe

Janie over at The Bride’s Cafe is a dear friend of mine and constantly serving up beautiful imagery and fabulous inspiration. Her floral gallery is to die for… check it out!

Charleston Weddings

Charleston Weddings Magazine is a staple here in the Lowcountry for any bride planning a wedding in this beautiful city. You would be in good company if you chose to have a destination wedding here, with more than 4,000 weddings in Charleston county last year alone.

Martha Stewart Weddings

You can’t go wrong with Martha. The entertaining guru has all of your big day necessities covered, but we especially love the etiquette advice such as “How to say no to a family member that wants to speak at the ceremony.” Important stuff!

Mindy Weiss

My girl Mindy Weiss is a event planner based in L.A. and has created some pretty incredible events since starting her company in 1992. Her clients run the gamut, but you may have heard of a few (Heidi Klum, Ellen Degeneres & Portia Rossi, Jessica Simpson, etc.) and we love checking out her blog for wedding trends and inspiration.

Brides Magazine

Brides magazine has always been a favorite and their website is chock full of gorgeous ideas and so nicely organized for easy searches. We love the fashion angle of this chic site… a great place to check out all the latest from Bridal Fashion Week!

Ritzy Bee Blog


Maria and Kelly do a beautiful job at Ritzy Bee, their D.C. based event planning company and their blog is an excellent combination of ideas both from own events and fabulous finds from other sites.
