2016 Publication Partnership Intro- Bridal Wars

Bridal Wars (Nationwide): Bridal Wars is a team competition event touring the country!  Teams of 3 compete in our one-of-a kind challenges, win great prizes and have a blast doing it! One lucky team in each event will win $1000 cash!! The challenges are a little bit physical (you might break a sweat!!), part hilarious (you’ll die laughing at your friends!!) and a whole lot of fun!

Of course, our favorite part to share is how they give back! Bridal Wars is a proud supporter of K9s For Warriors! K9s For Warriors connects Vet’s suffering from PTSD with Rescue Dogs (now trained service pets) around the nation.

This year we will be media sponsoring them at all of their events, check out their site for full event listings! Next stop will be Waco, TX on 2/6/16!

Repeat Roses- Using Wedding Flowers to Give Back!

Black Sheep Bride was recently sought out by a super amazing podcaster (Kira Hug) in NYC, with Bridal Rebellion. The goal of Bridal Rebellion is to feature disruptive wedding industry leaders and how they are changing the industry for good. Not only are we extremely excited to be a part of their October line up, we were also excited to have founded Repeat Roses on BR’s website. Repeat Roses is a NYC/St.Augustine initiative, gaining great speed through donating leftover wedding day flowers to nursing homes, hospitals, Ronald McDonald Houses, and the like, across the nation (thanks to their growing network of volunteers). I had the pleasure of grabbing lunch with Laura Parliament, partner of Repeat Roses, the other day in Jacksonville and I am so excited for the future of our business friendship! Check them out!

Fun Fact: The couple picking up the flowers in the top right  photos below (pinkish shirts), were the first volunteers to collect, and now their wedding day is right around the corner in October… Guess what they are doing with their flowers? Donating them to Repeat Roses!

Engagement Film with a Lot of TOM’S Love!

 

Its pretty amazing that couples are finding enough value in using their wedding budgets to give back that they would dedicate their entire wedding theme to TOM’S! Just imagine all the children they served through purchasing products that give back. Be on the look out for the full wedding showcase soon!

Special Thanks to Ashley and Todd Films in Northern Florida for sharing their beautiful story.
