Friday’s Favorites: Virtual Bridal Show Sneak Peek…Floral Headpieces and Gowns!

Happy Friday! What will you be up to this weekend? Me, I’ll be snuggled up on the couch in front of the fireplace with Mr. Wondermous. The kiddo is up the mountain at Grandma’s and will be frolicking in the snow and skipping across Grandma’s frozen lake. I’m looking forward to nearly three days without stepping on a Lego…lol.

Today I have two treasuries for you. Both are sneek peeks in to what the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team will be presenting as part of our annual show here on the Belle Memorie blog, beginning March 18th. I am just so proud of all the amazing vintage finds and one of a kind handmade creations our talented team has to offer you this year. Check out these swoon worthy gowns and fabulous floral headpieces! Stay tuned for the show on the 18th and next week will present more peeks in to what the team has been up to. Have a great weekend!

Monday’s Finding: Tablescape Inspiration

Today I thought I would post some of my favorite tablescapes I have pinned as of late. I’ve got just about every style of wedding represented: glam, classic, goth, shabby chic, vintage, modern, etc. We are talking some major inspiration for your own reception decor. For those of us (like myself) on a tight budget, you can use these ideas and pick one or two details to focus on, find ways to DIY, substitute more expensive materials with budget friendly ones, or borrow the color scheme and still come off with a gorgeous tablescape your guests will love. So without further ado…EYE CANDY!

Wedding Wednesday: Boho Beautiful Emerald and Mint Inspiration

Today’s Wedding Wednesday brings together two trending colors: the newly announced emerald by Pantone and mint, which made it’s premiere on the runways of Bridal Market. The two together make a gorgeous palette for any style of fete. I came across this gorgeous boho inspired mint gown and just had to base a board around it. Then, using the gorgeous emerald for the maids and in a natural woodsy setting, we end up with one beautiful bit of inspiration. I hope you like it as much as I do.
