Wedding By Color - Great Blog Post

We just love all those bride-to-be's out there who are reviewing YourCover. We think using a YourCover personalized magazine cover as a wedding favor or table centerpiece for a wedding is really unique. It gives the guests an opportunity to get to know a bit more about you. It breaks the ice at the table as people read the cover and compare how they know you. Other fun uses for a personalized wedding magazine cover are to put one in the rooms of overnight guests at the hotel or to give them out at the bridal shower.

Once again, thanks so much to bridetobe0309 who wrote about YourCover in her blog. Below is a snippet from her posting, click on "read more" at the end to continue reading.

YourCover and Squidoo

We have been working on creating another site at Squidoo. Squidoo is this cool site that allows anyone to make a 'lens'. The lens is basically a one-page website about a particular subject or interest. For example if you are hugely into scrapbooking or Star Wars, you can create a lens about those subjects with photos, content and links.

We created a lens "How to Make Someone Feel Like a Celebrity" that has lots of fun ideas. Of course YourCover is listed but we also have suggestions about limousines and hair stylists and red carpets. Squidoo is really fun and we think our lens is pretty great too. Check it out: How To Make Someone Feel Like a Celebrity.
