Etsy Virtual Bridal Show: EPIC Day 9: Bouquets and Bouquet Alternatives (1 of 5)

Welcome back to the Second Annual Etsy Virtual Bridal Show! Here is part one of five (yes, FIVE!) posts on bouquets and florals, including DIY tutorials and bespoke fabulous creations from the likes of Hopscotch Couture. Speaking of Hopscotch Couture, you may recognize the name from earlier categories. In this category, they feature two amazing bouquets that are not to be missed. In addition, Hopscotch Couture has generously donated this gorgeous necklace for one very lucky winner.

To enter, visit Hopscotch Couture and post a comment telling us what your favorite item is (mine is the spiral bouquet, just breathtaking and one of a kind). For extra entries, like Hopscotch Couture and Belle Memorie on Facebook and post a comment telling us which one or both you liked.

I began the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show last year to support individual artisans and vendors and to provide couples with alternatives to the mass produced wedding finds out there is traditional stores. The bridal world is evolving and growing away from the expected and moving toward individual craftsmanship and DIY touches. What’s great about Etsy is that you too can have a handmade look to your wedding without sacrificing your fingerprints to your hot glue gun.

In addition to helping individually owned shops, I wanted to bring awareness to my chosen charity: Wish Upon A Wedding. “Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.”

Please note that donations are not required to view or for vendors participate in the show. This is my labor of love to bring awareness to Wish Upon A Wedding and my belief in supporting small businesses and individual artisans. If you feel led to help Wish Upon A Wedding accomplish their mission, please see Wish Upon A Wedding’s donation page.
