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!

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!

Friday’s Favorites: Jane Austen Inspired and Plum and Gray Dark Romance

Today’s Friday’s favorites via Etsy touch on the Jane Austen inspired theme of my own wedding, which was posted on Monday and the Dark Romance theme that was Wedding Wednesday. Two beautiful treasuries full of fabulous Etsy creations and finds. Please don’t forget that the best way to find unique wedding details is to utilize sites like Etsy to connect you with independent artisans and vintage purveyors.
