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!

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.

Once upon a time, I went to beauty school. I love hair, nails, and makeup and have managed to keep up with what’s trending in the beauty world and the number one trend my trusted nail artists folk are seeing, “ring nails.” The “ring nail” manicure is basically one style of polish on all but both of your ring fingers. Typically, it’s an ornate design, overlay, pop of glitter, etc. that makes your ring fingers stand out from the rest of your mani.
Of course, like any beauty or fashion trend, the “ring nail” manicure has made it’s way in to the world of bridal. The most popular choice for brides is a french manicure with a striking bit of nail art on the ring fingers. Many brides choose to express the color palette of their wedding with their “ring nail” polish and art. Others, choose something that is close to their heart or something for that proverbial, “something blue.” If you are digging this trend, whatever your ring nail choice, have fun with it! Here are a few bits of “ring nail” mani inspiration to get your creativity flowing.
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!

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!

Happy Wedding Wednesday! What have you done for your wedding today? Me, I’m working on flowers made from the pages of “Pride and Prejudice” and watercolor painting them in a gradient blue from navy to sky. I’m really happy with how they are turning out. I’m one of those “don’t reveal too much” kind of brides, so you’ll have to wait until after June 8th to see them. 🙂
Today, I have some red and blush inspiration based on one swoon worthy gown by Jillian from their 2013 Sterlizia Collection. Gowns with print are fast becoming a trend and I have a feeling that we will see more of them at Spring Bridal Market. I love that so many designers are embracing what many brides want: a gown beyond the typical and this gown is anything but ordinary!
Take a peek and let me know if you have any requests for next Wedding Wednesday.

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!
