Here’s wishing you all a great LONG weekend. Here are a few great things you should know, do or put on your calendar.

Did you know Monique Lhuillier has launched two new bridesmaid collections?

The 2nd collection, Monique Lhuillier Bridesmaids, will retail for $225-$330 and will be available for purchase in full-service bridal salons worldwide in January 2011.  Yippie!!

Sunday 10/10 – If you are getting married today. CONGRATULATIONS!  The national forecast is predicting that the skies will be filled with fluffy clouds, everyone will arrive on time and love will be in the air.  Ok, so not a national forecast, but I do wish you all the best on this extremely special numerical day.

Sat. 10/23 – Check out the vegan-friendly party at NYC VegFest in Union Square Park, with free Tai Chi and yoga classes, samples and celeb speakers. Pick up some great vegan friendly ideas and recipes for your rehearsal dinner and for life after. The Tai Chi and yoga classes are a great way to unwind especially if you’re getting married on the 24th.

Now through October 25th TheKnot.com and The Empire State Building will be launching the “Wedding with a View” contest. Do you want to marry, renew your vows, or affirm your commitment at the world’s most romantic building, the Empire State Building, on Valentine’s Day?

Now through November, Divine Chocolate, the Fair Trade chocolate brand co-owned by cocoa farmers in Ghana, will earmark a percentage of sales from each bar sold to support Fair Trade awareness activities at Rock the Vote (RTV) events.

Throughout the fall, Divine Chocolate will visit various events across the country, including Rock the Vote events, and ask young people for their thoughts on democracy and Fair Trade.  Via an online contest at www.divinechocolateusa.com, Divine will also ask the public to submit their best ideas for spreading the word about Fair Trade.

Why am I posting this, because Divine Chocolate  is a great gift item for your wedding and they are one of the few companies that actually works with the coco growers and helps them to build their businesses.  I highly recommend them as a company and love their…free trade and justice for all.

So that’s it for today…I’m feeling love in the air.  Is it fall, or is it because I LOVE WHAT I DO?  Perhaps a bit of both.  Have a wonderful, safe and fun weekend.
