Wedding Wednesday: Gold and Dusty Purple Woodland Inspiration

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is inspired by a gorgeous bouquet by Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team Member, Amore Bride.

Isn’t that gorgeous?! It’s such a beautiful fall color combo with the muted gold and dusty purple, that I wanted to borrow the combo and use it for a spring woodland inspiration board just for you all. I hope you enjoy it and that it’s come to you a bit early since tomorrow I will be waiting for the conversion of this blog to my own domain at bellememorie.com!

Stay tuned for more Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team goodness starting on Monday, March 18th where we will be presenting the Third Annual Etsy Virtual Bridal Show!

Monday’s Finding: Ten Fab DIYs

Well, it’s Monday and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have my kiddo back from his Grandma’s house. He had a great time up in the mountains and even helped build a snow fort on the lake. My little snow beast is on the right.

I spent my weekend working on one of my favorite DIY wedding projects: my paper flowers made from pages of Pride and Prejudice. So, since I’m in the DIY spirit, I thought I’d show you some recent DIY finds via Pinterest. My personal fave are the recycled tin cans…gorgeous! Enjoy and I’d love to know if you are doing any DIY projects for your own fete.

Wedding Wednesday: Purple and Lavender Glam

Today, I have one glamtastic bit of purple and lavender inspiration for you. When I came across this lavender gown, I knew I had to put a board together for it. Monochromatic decor is very on-trend for weddings this year (see the Winter edition of The Knot) and if you are a fan of purple, then this monochromatic glam inspiration is perfect for you.

In addition, I have some great lavender and purple bits and bobs from the participants of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show to get you started on all of that wedding shopping. Speaking of the show, this year’s show will debut here on the Belle Memorie blog on Monday, March 18th. This year it’s bigger and better than ever with over 440 shops and LOTS of custom and one of a kind finds to help you make your wedding just as beautiful as your love. So, mark your calendars and enjoy your day!

Tip or Trend Tuesday: Trend: Lavish Florals for Hair and More

Today’s trend comes from Bride Tide’s 2013 trend list…lavish florals. From breathtaking floral headpieces to swoonworthy tablescapes, this trend can be summed up in two words, “eye candy.” So, today I bring you enough floral eye candy to make your eyes glaze over in a stupor of georgeousness (yes, I just went the made up word route). I know you are going to find a great deal of inspiration in these luxe floral creations. Enjoy and by all means…indulge yourself!

Friday’s Favorites: “I Do Garlands” and “All a Flutter Over Red and Blush”

It’s Friday and that means it’s time to do your best TGIF happy dance! ‘Twas a longish week for me as I am not only working to provide you with the normal fabulous content I present to you (I’m modest…yep), but I’m finishing up the final details of this blog’s heart and soul: The Etsy Virtual Bridal Show!

Yes, dear readers, it’s that time of year. The time where the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team takes over the blog for two weeks as we present our best handmade wedding creations and super fab vintage wedding finds to help you bring that one of a kind “authentically you wedding do!” This is our third year and I couldn’t be prouder of this little project. From just 100 shops that I personally invited, to last year’s team creation, and this year’s 440 shops, I know that you will hit the bridal mother load when it comes to finding everything from original couture gown creations to unique ever so trendy garlands to spruce up your event space. March 18th is the day to mark on your calendar for the beginning of the show!

So, this week’s favorites are a treasury of fabulous on trend garlands from many Etsy vendors as well as a treasury all a flutter with a blush and red butterfly theme. Enjoy the treasuries and most of all, remember that this wedding planning stuff, it supposed to be fun!

Tip or Trend Tuesday: Trend: Garlands

Bridal Guide’s 2013 trend list is out and one trend I not only love myself, but am seeing more and more of as of late: garlands. Garlands are great for decor and signage such as identifying the guest book table to a lovely backdrop for your sweetheart table. What I love about them is the texture, dimension and flexibility of display as opposed to your typical sign. They can adorn the chuppah, decorate the staircase, hang from chandeliers, or mark the aisle. Today, I have some of my favorite garlands via Pinterest and I hope you enjoy!
