As you jump full steam ahead into holiday shopping, I want to give a shout out to some of my favorite small businesses. I know a lot of these women and men personally and I have the utmost respect for them as entrepreneurs. It’s not easy … I know from experience it takes a lot of personal sacrifice to get a business off the ground, but the rewards are so worth it. Just like you, I can’t resist an incredible Black Friday deal from the big box stores, but I always set aside some of my gifting dollars for Small Business Saturday, to support the smaller shops as well. And usually, on Christmas day, the handmade personalized gifts are the ones that are talked about the most.
Bouquet Sound & Fairytale Hair and Makeup – These two popular Disneyland wedding vendors have a joint special – book Bouquet Sound for your DJ/MC services, and get free bridal hair and makeup ($300 value) with Fairytale Hair and Makeup!
