Helping small businesses and purchasing local is what drives the great state of Maryland. The following companies were born and bred in the black eyed susan state and are OH SO GOOD for every wedding. So I think a true Baltimore wedding should have a little bit of the following somewhere...
1. Made in Woodsborow, Md, the Rosebud Perfume Company has a fantastic lip balm that all would love! Crazy thing is...you can find this at these retail stores too: Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Anthropoligie, American Apparel, South Moon Under, Blue Mercury and more!
2. Ok Ladies, this one is AMAZING. Have you heard of Mouth Party Caramels? If not, prepare yourself for a new addiction. And for my Maryland brides...they make an Old Bay Caramel. Don't scrunch your nose...it won't make your mouth burn or make you sneeze...i promise. Its just really good. Best of all it started in BALTIMORE!
3. Did you know we have a fantastic salad dressing being made in our backyard? Tessamae's All Natural Dressing started in Essex, MD!
So if you're considering a backyard wedding and need a unqiue and special dressing...i'd go with Tessamae's. And how cute is the logo?? You can find this product online or at Whole Foods, COSTCO (my fav), Safeway, Kroger, The Fresh Market and Marianos.
