Nordstrom Weddings

Nordstrom has recently launched a wedding shop featured online and in many of their stores. Before you think, “Nordstrom, I can’t afford that,” I highly encourage you to take a peek at their site. There are many affordable options available from dresses under $200 to jewelry for under $50. In addition, they have a great “mothers” section. Take a look here and use their locator to find a Nordstrom Wedding Shop near you.

Well, it’s done…Now go forth and donate!

Here is the video of me shaving my head. I’ve done it, so now you can go forth and donate. If you do, please email me at partiesbykristen@hotmail.com so that I can direct Wish Upon a Wedding to send an honor card to my mom. Thanks everyone! http://wishuponawedding.org/how-to-help/make-a-contribution/

Wish Upon a Wedding: In honor of my mother

Yesterday I found out that my mother’s clinical trial for her liver cancer did not work as expected and that she has started on chemotherapy. For those who know me, you know how close I am to my mom and that she is more than my mom, she is my best friend and confidante. My mother is experiencing a battle with a third type of cancer in less than a year. First it was endometrial cancer, then gallbladder cancer, and now liver cancer as a result of the gallbladder cancer. This is a very serious sort of cancer and we are praying and believing that she will be healed. My father fought a battle with bladder cancer five years ago and was not expected to live, but he beat the odds and I hope that my mom will do the same with her cancer.

My mom and I believe in a very special charity called Wish Upon a Wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding provides weddings and vow renewals for people facing terminal illness or or other life changing circumstances regardless of religious affiliation or sexual orientation. My challenge to you dear readers is this: I will shave my head if you all make donations to Wish Upon a Wedding in honor of my mother, Ema Sherman. Every little bit counts and this will really touch my mom in a special way.

To donate to Wish Upon a Wedding, please go here: http://wishuponawedding.org/how-to-help/make-a-contribution/. In the Paypal notes section, please put “In honor of Ema Sherman” and then email me at partiesbykristen@hotmail.com so that I can inform Wish Upon a Wedding so they can send her an honor card. Thanks so much everyone and I will be posting pictures of my haircut in the next day or so.

Nordstrom Mother of the Bride Design Contest

I recently sent in a few entries for Nordstrom’s Wedding Shop’s Mother of the Bride Design Contest. Entrants had to create a head to toe look with dresses from Nordstrom’s Wedding Shop. The entries are still being judged (wish me luck), but I thought that I would share my sets over the next day or two:
