Great Find: Mixteka Music
categories: entertainment, Giveaways and Contests

In the wedding world, there seems to be 3 types of couples when it comes to music at their wedding and once you know which type you are, your chances of changing your mind are pretty slim. There are the band lovers, die-hard DJ fans, and the DIY’ers and while we are huge fans of the band or DJ route, we know that one way for couples to save on their wedding expenses (and truly customize their entertainment) is to handle the music on their own.

If you identify with the DIY music crowd, then Mixteka is a wedding music solution that you’ll want to know about.

Giveaway_Mixteka_wedding music

So what is it? Simply put, Mixteka is a wedding music solution that allows you to invite friends to recommend music, create your own completely custom wedding music list, and play your music selections (and pre-recorded announcements if you choose to use them) at your wedding with just the click of a button on Mixteka’s device. This is such a great option because it frees up your phone and other mobile devices for selfies and videos!

devicepackaging

I received a demo of the product and it was really easy to use, had all kinds of custom options, and was a great way to streamline the music/entertainment process. If you’re a DIY kind of couple and don’t want any glitches, dead iPods, or empty “airtime”, then Mixteka is a music solution that will keep your guests dancing all night!

Are you engaged to be married in Arizona? Then enter our giveaway! Mixteka is offering one engaged couple a complete, all-inclusive wedding package valued at $149. Complete our quick submission form {http://phoenixbrideandgroom.com/giveaways_newsletter.php} by April 30, 2015 to be entered to win.

categories: bridal fashions, Giveaways and Contests

Your wedding is the perfect excuse to shop for new jewelry and as your source for all things wedding, we’re especially delighted to share Amelia Rose Design with you. We were first introduced to their Catherine earrings and necklaces which hooked us immediately but once we saw all the other pieces on the sites, we were instant fans.

Here’s the Catherine necklace and earrings in Green Amethyst with gold; each necklace is hand-wrapped with round freshwater pearls and a faceted semi-precious stone, in 14k gold-filled or sterling silver, adjusting 16-18″ for a perfect fit!

Amelia Rose also has many designs that are perfect for bridesmaid, MOB, or MOG gifts. The gold and silver options make it easy to choose pieces for your besties and since silver is coming back in a big way for weddings, this is a really nice feature!

Great Find: It’s Really the Little Things (plus a giveaway!)
categories: favor and gift ideas, health and beauty

When our Publisher met Deborah DeBrino, co- owner of It’s Really the Little Things, at a local bridal show, she knew we had to share Deb’s company with you. Our Publisher was impressed first and foremost with the quality of the products but also with Deb herself who is enthusiastic, professional, and super talented.

So what does It’s Really the Little Things make and why do we like them so much? They make custom getting ready shirts and wraps for weddings (and beyond). You’ve undoubtedly heard the advice to wear a shirt that has buttons so you don’t have to pull a shirt over your head once your makeup and hair are done, right? Well, this shirt is meant for exactly that and since it’s customizable, it also makes a fabulous gift!

Deb tells us why she prefers white for the getting ready shirts: I feature my Getting Ready Shirt in white for several reasons: it’s reflective of the special day for a bride and it looks and feels cool and crisp while getting ready. It’s also easier to clean tough stains, like makeup and food, than shirts with color so a bride can use it long after the wedding day.

That being said, I am happy to offer other shirt colors, such as Light Blue, Mediterranean Blue, Navy, Gray, and Black on request.

Phoenix Bride and Groom_Arizona_Wedding magazine_custom  getting ready shirt_Bridesmaid gift_flower girl gift_Its Really the Little Things (1)

Besides the bride, Deb also makes shirts for the Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, same sex couples, and girls/guys weekends

The company also make kids shirts (adorable for flower girls and ring bearers), soffee shorts, and a wedding emergency kit that many of their brides have found to be very useful.

Deb tells us about the newest products at It’s Really the Little Things (so new they aren’t even on the website yet!): I just started carrying “I Love the Spa” wraps for men and women- 32” Microfiber with a soft terry lining or terry Velour for women and 24” wrap-around-the-waist terry Velour for the men.

I’m also introducing colorful totes.  The totes have an inside pocket and are plastic lined and come in 20 colors (of course they can be embroidered).

I frequently make a “Honeymoon Kit” with 2 Spa Wraps or Spa Robes that are rolled up and tucked into one of these adorable and functional totes.

We love a gift or product that’s both useful and fun so we partnered with It’s Really the Little Things to give away a Honeymoon Kit”, which includes 2 Spa Wraps and a tote(valued at over $135.00, including tax and shipping).  Visit our November e-newsletter to enter!
