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!

Friday’s Favorites: Two Hundred Years of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy

Well, today marks the end of Pride and Prejudice week. I hope you have found the posts enjoyable and inspiring. On June 8th, I will be marrying Mr. Wondermous in our Pride and Prejudice inspired wedding. Only 5 months to go and I am SO looking forward to it. It should be a great time with the closest of our family and friends and I’m having a ball DIYing the majority of all of our wedding details. Have a great weekend and happy planning!
