  1. I love the Duck Egg Blue Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero. It would match the color of the pacific ocean off the coast of big sur just perfectly - it's one of those colors that I've loved, and have had the hardest time trying to describe. Duck Egg Blue is just perfect.

  2. What a lovely giveaway, thank you! I love the ivory ruffled silk carina bolero. She makes gorgeous pieces!

  3. a. I have a long list of favorite wedding blogs but I am very fond of Once Wed and Ruffled.

    b. French Vanilla Bridal Wrap! Absolutely beautiful. I call my wedding dress my Mexican cupcake because it's a body hugging confection of small intricate layers and ruffles. The French Vanilla Bridal Wrap would be the perfect topping... literally.

    We're getting married June 26th.

  4. a. I use Wedding Wire for our wedding website. I do NOT recommend paying the slightest attention to their Wedding Checklist (shudder), but all the website features, especially the RSVP tool, are very good for a free source.
    b. I am in love with Rococco Bridal Wrap!

    Thanks!

  5. I LOVE the Regal Yellow Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap. My bridesmaids dresses are this same color and I am getting married outside at a Botanic Garden so it would be the perfect pop of color.
    I am just getting started so I have not chosen a wedding tool yet but looking through all of these comments will help me decide I am sure. I do peruse through tons of blogs everyday though.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh wow - I LOVE the Dusky Blush Garden of Eden Capelet and the Ivory Ruffled Silk Bolero. These are amazing!

    1) Some of the blogs I frequently search for inspiration are 100 Layer Cake, Once Wed, Ruffled, Green Wedding Shoes, Dandelion and Grey - just to name a few.

    2) I love everything but named my favs above.

    We are getting married May 29, 2010.

  7. I have been using The Knot for most of my planning and tools. I like the free wedding website you can create and the forums can be helpful as well.

    I adore the victorian inspired silk bolero , though all of them are just so lovely.

    We're getting married July 10th (Yay!)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love the Fallen Angel White Ruffled Bolero! So pretty. I'm getting married April 10- yes, a week from Saturday!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Beautiful stuff! Hard to choose - love the duck egg blue shrug (oooh, but with cap sleeves for me? :D). Also the champagne shrug. Just lovely, lovely

    Have been bopping back and forth between Off Beat Bride and the Knot. We're getting married 9/25/10 - hooray!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Bonzie’s shop is simply gorgeous! I love the Champagne Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero, but then the Golden Yellow Raw Silk Venetian Ruffled Shoulder Wrap would completely match my wedding and my shoes! Amazing.

    We're getting married June 19th!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Beautiful! I don't have a planning site/tool yet. I have a blog through wordpress (completely unrelated) and thought that might be an easy tool for tagging and keeping track of vendors, and I actually do find that useful.

    I love all of the Bonzie things. It looks like there's a custom item in there (Reserved for Billie Lorraine) that is gorgeous. Apparently, I enjoy Billie Lorraine's style as much as Bonzie's.

    ReplyDelete
  12. i love bonzie! i am using a wordpress blog in lieu of a wedding website and i actually blogged about bonzie shrugs awhile back :) http://stevenlara.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/cold-shoulder/ i love them all but i really want a pop of bright pink for mine!

    ReplyDelete
  13. a) We are using Wordpress for our wedding website and Google docs to keep track of everything from to-do lists to the budget.

    b) The ivory carina bolero is gorgeous! But then again, all bonzie shrugs are!

    c) Our date is June 5th!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. In addition to the gorgeous giveaway bolero, I also love the Coral Raw Silk Venetian Ruffled Shoulder Wrap. That coral color is so hard to find, and it happens to be one of my wedding colors. I would be thrilled to wear either of these beauties on my wedding day - what a perfect finishing touch!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sunflower Carina Bolero is my fave. I look at 100 layer cake, etsy wedding, ruffled, snippet and ink...the list goes on. We are getting married March 6, 2011.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have LA-oved Bonzie's work since I laid eyes on it. My favorite piece today is the Golden Yellow Raw Silk Venetian Ruffled Shoulder Wrap. I love how you can wear this to your wedding, and then it's your little secret weapon for any other event to take your outfit from great to unforgetable. And it might just be the little thing you wear again and again to remember the feeling of your wedding day.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero. It would look terrific with my dress! We are getting married September 17, 2011.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am smitten with the Duck Egg Blue bolero. I'm attending a wedding in August in the UK and have the *perfect* dress to wear it w/. Hint, hint! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I tried to use some wedding planners but it didn't really work for me. The best input I got that didn't make me shudder was from Offbeat Bride. I also love A Practical Wedding and 2000DollarWedding

    I love the Duck Egg Blue Bolero, and the Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves, although I might order a different color from the ivory for some color. Maybe red.

    ReplyDelete
  20. A) Google Reader has been an immense help during wedding planning! I've been able to track too many wedding-related blogs to think of and I love how easily I can tag posts for inspiration (Flowers, Shoes, Ceremony Readings, Cocktails, etc.). Plus Google docs is helping me keep track of all the details from guest addresses to seating arrangements!
    B) I love the Dusky Blush Garden of Eden Capelet. It's a perfect blend of romance and fashion - definitely right up my alley!

    Our date is July 17, 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'd go for the Duck Egg Blue Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero - I'm wearing a simple and casual knee-length dress, so it would offset that perfectly.

    The date? May 2011, depending on when I start school again.

    ReplyDelete
  22. a. I'm using theknot for some things and my own google docs spreadsheet for organizing other parts :)

    b. I absolutely lovelovelove the Victorian inspired bolero with corsage trio! I've had my eye on it for a while...

    Getting married October 17, 2010! It's coming up quick!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fabulous giveaway! I am in L-O-V-E with the duck egg blue ruffled silk carina bolero...*heart* It would be the perfect accessory for my September 4th wedding on the lake where we met!

    P.S. I'm using The Knot for my wedding website but in all honesty, I use the wedding blogosphere for all my ideas / planning.

    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I love the Champagne Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero! Simply gorgeous! I have been having such a grand time planning my June wedding. I can't believe how fast time has gone! Some of my fave wedding websites that inspire me are: Once Wed, Style Me Pretty and Martha Stewart's website. I am **crossing** my fingers that I win. It'd be like icing on top of the cake for me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The Regal Yellow Dupioni Silk Wrap is AMAZING - I love the pop of colour and the textured silk. Bonzie also used to make similar wraps in teal and the most intense scarlet colour, which were equally beautiful.

    My wedding is in March next year in a restored heritage building - all exposed beams, overstuffed Chesterfields and chandeliers - so this decadent style is perfect for me. Thanks for highlighting Bonzie's work!

    For wedding planning, I have an Excel spreadsheet - but I refer to Offbeat Bride and A Practical Wedding daily for advice and the restoration of sanity. Favourite wedding blogs are Once Wed, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled and the delightfully snarky East Side Bride.

  27. The ethereal wrap is gorgeous! I never though about a bridal shrug before. It be perfect for the windy weather we have in sf. Our wedding date is August 7, 2010!

    The best wedding website/planning tool I been using is weddingwire.com. It has a dashboard of all things I need to help plan, checklists, vendors reviews, wedding events, and etc.

    The ivory Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero is just as prety!

    Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  28. Champagne Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero
    My favorite! Have a little jacket would be perfect. I love everything vintage and everything simple. This would be the perfect addition to a simple dress!
    My date is not until September 9, 2011 but hopefully by the end of 2010 we'll be vacationing and wedding plans will be finished and I'll have a great Champagne Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero hanging in the closet:)
    Thanks much! Casey

  30. 1) I use google for all my wedding tools, and am subscribed to numerous wedding blogs..but i'm a big weddingbee fan for inspiration and diy tutorials!
    2) love the ethereal wrap and also the french vanilla! awesome giveaway, indeed!

    our date is 7/31/10 :)

  32. Our wedding date is May 8, 2010 and would love to wear this amazing bolero. I also love the Black Fallen Angel bolero. Good luck everyone!

  33. Think I am in love with the Regal Yellow Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap. Yellow is my favorite wedding color--bright, bold, beautiful, and cheerful--everything I hope my wedding will be!

    Our (very, veeeery) tentative date is Aug 26, 2011.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I look at Once Wed all the time!

    Our stroll down the aisle is June 6th :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been using Martha Stewarts wedding planner. I think it's been pretty useful, and I would recommend it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I absolutely love the Aubergine Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero!! It has been on my favorites on Etsy forever now. I would love to have it not only for our second reception in my husbands home town so that it feels a bit different from our wedding day . . . but also, it would be great to wear with a sweet dress or top all year long. The color is amazing and shape is perfect!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. StyleMePretty is one of my favorite wedding websites/blogs . .. full of inspiration and ideas. I would totally recommend it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the victorian inspired silk shrug the best, it's very pretty!
    My wedding is June 26, 2010 : )

    ReplyDelete
  39. a) What wedding website/planning tool have I NOT checked out? Seriously, my list of blogs in Google Reader is long; everything from Style Me Pretty to 2000DollarWedding. I use the Knot for picture inspirations, and my wedding website is built from mywedding.com. Also, I highly recommend honeyfund.com for a honeymoon registry. However, to all those brides who feel a little lost and overwhelmed by the big (and yes, sometimes bad) bridal industry, or by the pressure from family to do this or do that, please, please read the blog A Practical Wedding. Meg is just wonderful and provides a voice of rational sincerity during what can be a stressful planning process. Yes, go there now, go on!

    b) They are all beautiful. What I wouldn't give to be such a talented seamstress. I do favor the Regal Yellow Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap though.

    c)See above =). Have any wraps in chartreuse/green? Might have to order me one of those beauties!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is such a wonderful giveaway :)

    a) weddingbee.com is my favorite place for inspiration, ideas, and enthusiasm. I also visit youtube frequently to get ideas.

    b) Oh wow, I LOVE the ivory Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero! Elegant and rustic and funky...first time I've used those three adjectives in a single sentence!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't use one wedding website as such, but i have gained lots of inspiration from Snippet & Ink, Green Wedding Shoes & 100 layer cake, to name only a few!

    I adore the Rich Poppy Red Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap
    Red is my favourite signature colour & it would add a gorgeous burst of colour to my outfit... mmm... with red shoes....

    ReplyDelete
  42. We use MyWedding for our website, and I love it! It's completely free and is very customizable. It matches our paper products perfectly, but it so happens the site also sells matching invites, STDs, Thank You Cards, etc as well for most of the page templates.

    With respect to the gorgeous creations in Bonzie's shop, I love the "Ivory Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves" the most! She's PERFECT - she would complement my gown perfectly, but would also be fun to wear after the wedding for a night on the town!

  43. LOVE THE etheral wrap!! How absolutely beautiful and perfect for my strapless gown. It is gorgeous and amazing!!

    I follow I Do Budget wedddings and love the input, contests and design ideas for ladies such as myself on a tight budget! I also love Google Docs for Weddings. Great planning and budgeting tools!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I Used wedding wire for my website. Mainly because I like the style options and the flash into.

    I absolutely love the sunflower yellow bolero. I have been eying it for quite a while! Everything she makes is just gorgeous.

    We are getting married June 5th. Can't wait!

  46. I love all the pieces, but especially like the ivory boleros and the corsets.
    I use ourweddingday.com and theknot.com
    Thank you for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  47. a. I too read a lot of the bridal blogs out there, and have used Wedding Wire for reviews, but I have found that the Real Simple Weddings magazine was a great investment. It's basically a planner that I can write in, with useful pull out worksheets. I still like to hold things in my hands :)

    b. My favorite item is the Black Fallen angel Ruffled Bridal Bolero. I probably wouldn't wear black for my wedding, but rather, rock it out with a fancy dress or a silk tank top and jeans! I think it's gorgeous and versatile!

    Our wedding is Oct. 9th, 2010.
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the Black Fallen Angel Ruffled Bridal Bolero, especially in black because it would work both for the wedding and for years after on special occasions!

    ReplyDelete
  49. oh wow. everything she makes is breath-taking! i'm in love with the signature bridal skirt. so beautiful!

    as far as wedding sites, i have several. the knot, wedding channel, style me pretty. no one site is multi-faceted enough so i get ideas from several.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Exciting!!! I would love the IVORY Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves-- it would look amazing with my dress (wedding June 11, 2010!) Also, I use a variety of blogs to help with wedding planning- mostly weddingbee.com and bestdestinationwedding.com (theforum.) Love them both and would highly recommend them! Thanks so much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. OMG I just the French Vanilla Bridal Wrap--- I love that as well! Beautiful!

    Every bride should be using this website to help stay organized AND it's free!

    Favorite bonzie bolero: Ivory Ruffled Silk Carina (it would go perfectly over my dress for my fall wedding!)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just adore these. The Ethereal Light Baroque Wrap would be perfect over my dress for our August wedding. For planning I'm using the Knot, I have found it okay, but not amazing. Its certainly good for general stuff. I've also found my love for excel has been invaluable in the planning process. Awesome giveaway. thanks! ~LeeLa

    ReplyDelete
  54. Woweeee! What a great site! I was looking for a little bolero to spice up my super plain dress for my August 2010 wedding. I have not been using any websites or planning tools as it will be a very simple and small wedding. I do LOVE the Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves and I think it is a perfect solution to my dilemma. I don't have a colour picked out so I am not picky! However, I am a big fan of red and deep purple...... mmmmm, I can picture it now with a rockin pair of shoes!

    THanks so much for all of your beautiful designs!

  55. I love using Google reader to keep up with different wedding blogs and I can tag the ones I want to keep.
    I'm looking for a bolero - these are great!

  57. a- google docs, yo! shared spreadsheets with the hubby to be, shared ceremony document with the JP, and so much more. and i can access it anywhere!

    b. love the Dusky Blush Garden of Eden Capelet! this piece would be great in case our 5pm wedding is on the cooler side- gives a hint of color and sass, and could keep my shoulders warm.

    ReplyDelete
  58. a) I use weddingwire.com, I find it very useful especially because of the budget tool and the customizable website. . .it has nice templates!
    b) <3 the Ruffled Silk Courtesan Bolero :)
    btw. our wedding is on 09/11/10!

    ReplyDelete
  59. These are all stunning, and each so unique! Hmm. I don't have a dress yet, so I'm just oing to throw out my fave-without-any-bridal-context shrug: Coral Raw Silk Venetian Ruffled Shoulder Wrap.

    And I've been using google documents (now with wedding templates) to plan. So far, so good, especially the ability to share information with my partner and integrate mail merge and RSVP functions into our website and emails.

    Also, we're just about a year out: April 3, 2011

    ReplyDelete
  60. These are gorgeous! I am planning to have green accessories with my (white) dress and this would be a great way to add a fun bit of colour!

    The website my partner and I are using is weddingmapper.com. All our guests are coming from out of town to our celebration (in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) and this website provides a way to create a google map with custom points of interest (where we are having the ceremony/reception, our favorite restaurants, options for accommodation). It was fun to put together and (we hope) gets people interested in visiting us and our city for more than just the main event!

    (As an aside, friends of ours also liked mywedding.com for its simplicity.)

  61. I too have been drooling over Bonzie for a good long while -- her Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves in red would be my dream accessory!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow, so many pretty things!

    a) Google docs has been a lifesaver because my fiance and I are currently both living in Europe (we're from Canada) and in different countries, so it has allowed us to be very organized. Also, we're using www.mywedding.com for the RSVPs and to provide all other necessary info to our guests - eco-friendly and affordable!

    b) I'd have to go for the Victorian Inspired Silk Bridal Bolero

    Nov 6th, 2010 is our date!

    b) Among everything else in Bonzie's shop, I am head over heels in love with the Ethereal Wrap, which would be the perfect statement accessory for my dress!

  71. The lovely ladies of Bonzie are brillantly talented, I have been lusting after their work for ages. I had recently decided that the Duck Egg Blue Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero would look perfect with my red Chameleon Convertible Gown. So, I couldn't believe this fortuitous give-away! How absolutely phenomenal!!! Both items I can wear again and again after the Big Day.

    My daily dose of sanity comes from Off-beat Bride, A Practical Wedding, and 2000 Dollar Budget Wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I am a big fan of bonzie's etsy shop. My church isn't big on bare shoulders, and her ruffled boleros are just the ticket for covering up but still looking great on your wedding day! I'd have to say my favorite thing in bonzie's shop,though, is the Gold Masquerade Bonzie Corset. The mix of fabrics and the beading is amazing. Of the boleros it's a hard choice, but I am definitely a fan of the Ivory Fallen Angel Ruffled Bridal Bolero.

    ReplyDelete
  73. (a) I post wedding planning progress on my blog (http://lauradowns.blogspot.com/) and I use a planner book that I bought at Chapter's.

    I also look at various wedding blogs/sites daily like Ruffled blog, Style me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake and Green Wedding shoes.

    (b) Everything in their shop is gorgeous and so romantic! I love the signature Bridal skirt and Masquerade corset too.

    Lovely giveaway!

    Getting married August 6th, 2010. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love them all. I have been considering wearing one but I have to stop adding to my to do list with only 2 months to go.

    I did use theknot and weddingchannel at first until i just started using Google. Although not a wedding site, i created an account just for the wedding, I search for inspiration on google images, i use the google docs and share the calendar with my fiance. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  83. The Rich Poppy Red Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap is gorgeous and will be the perfect pop of color for my July 3rd wedding!

    My favorite wedding tool is Google Documents. It's made sharing information with my family, bridesmaids and planner so easy and stress free.

    Our wedding is July 3rd in Chicago.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I am using The Wedding Channel & a Real Simple planning guide to organize. I have my wedding site through The Wedding Channel after not liking the designs on The Knot and myweddings.com.

    The shrug is gorgeous and would compliment my white, black, and silver November 28, 2010 wedding wonderfully!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  89. What a lucky find! I have been working at bridal boutiques for almost four years, and these shrugs/boleros look stunning! I will definitely need to refer my brides to this shop!

    So far, my favorite wedding blog is http://www.stylemepretty.com. It has a vast amount of resources that I just can't get enough of! I am addicted to the DIY and Bridal Inspiration sections -- so much fun!

    I'm looking for a gown that covers my shoulders, so any one of these boleros would help transition a strapless gown into a more modest ensemble. Thanks for sharing!

  94. I'm using the hell out of Excel and Google Docs, but as far as web sites for planning/inspiration, Practical Wedding, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake and of course good ol' Etsy.

    June 5th is our date, and it's getting close!

  95. (a) I'm using mywedding.com...I like it. They have a ton of designs and it's easy to use. I used some of their pre-designed pages and also added my own pages. It's free, and I had the option of adding a password so only invited guests could view our website (yay privacy!).

    (b) I love the Black Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero. Gorgeous!

  98. All of Bonzie's boleros look absolutely romantic and glamorous. My favorite would have to be the "Rich Poppy Red Dupioni Raw Silk Wrap" as it reminds me so much of the red Lela Rose bridesmaid dresses my bridal party will wear.

    One wedding website tool that has been invaluable to me is Martha Stewart Wedding's "My Budget" tool. It has helped to keep me very sane!

  99. a) For local resources, I use the Knot. For inspiration and ideas I love Style Me Pretty.

    b) Everything in bonzie's shop is to die for. If I had to choose something, the French Vanilla Bridal Wrap would be my pick. It's stunning and so unique.

    We're getting married September 25, 2010 :)

  101. Le sigh... these boleros are so romantic. It's hard to choose just one, but if I must I would choose the Victorian Inspired Silk Bolero with Corsage Trio in Silver. My bridesmaids are wearing fuchsia and the boys are wearing grey. With my hot pink shoes and this silver shrug I would tie them all together!

  102. I use the Google wedding documents and they are a life-saver! They keep me super-organized... I dunno what I'd do without them!

    I adore Bonzie's boleros, especially the Ivory Ruffled Silk Carina Bolero with Capped Sleeves. I've gone back and forth about purchasing one for my wedding, but I haven't found room in my budget for one. I'm convinced it would amazing with my ivory gown... and it would be a great conversation-starter!
