Friday’s Favorites: Candlelight and Red Velvet Beauties from the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team

Sorry for the late post folks, it’s been a wacky sort of day. However, I think you will find it worth the wait.

Call me old fashioned, but I still love the unity candle ceremony. It brings two families together with active participation from both sides and who can resist the warm romantic glow of candlelight? This week I featured candlelit decor and to add to it, here are some super gorgeous unity candle sets and holders from the best of Etsy. There are a few beauties in that treasury from members of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team: Forest Candle Studio, Henna Swirls, Pure Beauty Art, and Shabulous Chandeliers.

Speaking of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team, today’s other treasury features swoon worthy red velvet creations and vintage finds all from members of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team.

Enjoy the Etsy goodness, have a great weekend, and don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for the latest and greatest from the team!

Saturday’s Latest: A Fab New Etsy Find For the Stretched Lobed Bride: Arksendeavors and Weekly Team Roundup

I am super duper excited to show you that even us stretched lobed brides can find gorgeous bridal ear wear. I’m currently at 1/2″ and working toward 1″ all due to Arksendeavors. When I first got engaged, I knew that my selection of ear jewelry would be just about nil. I searched high and low for a pair of wedding worthy plugs via my go to shops and none had anything that could stand up to my Mom’s triple strand of pearls. I had resigned myself to naked ears on my wedding day, that is until I came across Arksendeavors.

Arksendeavors is run by Amanda, who started experimenting with resin to create special occasion plugs for those of us with modified lobes. When I took a peek at Amanda’s shop, I was so excited and relieved that someone out there was thinking of us non-conformist brides. In fact, I am actually stretching my ears further, because I now know I can find beautiful plugs that will complement my Mom’s pearls.

From pearls, to crystals and cameos, Arksendeavors has your lobes covered!

Here’s the latest and greatest from the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team. Enjoy your weekend!
