Hello lovelies,

I have been absolutely blown away by the responses to the Bridal Musings reader survey!

Thank you to all of you who took the time to share your thoughts with me, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

There were so many positive and really helpful, constructive comments that I need a little time to process them all.

Suffice to say I'm walking on air right now and thankful for all of your kind words. It makes all the late nights, early starts and being permanently attached to my laptop well worth it.

Three things that emerged from the survey are that lots of you…

1)  love DIY (I mean really love it! ) Who knew there were so many crafty brides out there?

2) want to see even more real weddings (fine by me, they're my favourite features)

3) are big fans of J.Crew Weddings!

I'll be sure to keep you posted on the changes that I'll be making to Bridal Musings as a result of your feedback.

Right so who's won that $100 J.Crew gift card you say?

Your entries have been counted and the winner, chosen at random using this fancy random number generator, is commenter number 68:

Lindsay Plaskett

Congratulations Lindsay! You'll receive an email from those stylish folks at J.Crew shortly.

Thanks again to all who took part and thanks to J.Crew for generously donating such an awesome prize.

If you haven't checked out  J.Crew Weddings yet, take a peek at my favourites from the collection, head on over to the website or connect with other real J.Crew brides on their Facebook page and Twitter.

Here's a sneak peek of some of the loveliness coming to a computer screen near you very soon.

And just as a heads up, things are super hectic at Bridal Musings HQ at the moment as Zee and I are packing up our San Francisco apartment and heading back to London (it's a long story!)

So just so you know, it'll be a somewhat reduced blogging schedule for the next few days. Sorry about that.

But remember you can always search through the archives in the side bar to your right >> for previous loveliness, find me on Lover.ly or check out the Bridal Musings Pinterest boards (I have nearly 100 boards. Yes, it's fair to say I'm addicted to pinning pretty things.)
