Friday’s Favorites: Etsy Finds: Geektastic Nuptials and Boho Beachiness

Welcome to another week of Friday’s Favorites, where I round up the week’s posts with great Etsy Finds. This week for Monday’s Finding we had geeky wedding details and Etsy has plenty of wedding geekery. Then, we had a boho beach inspiration on Wedding Wednesday and I found some gorgeous beachy bits and bobs, including a gorgeous bridal gown. I hope you like this week’s finds and enjoy your weekend!

Monday’s Finding: Time for a round of Something Blue

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a “Something Blue” set and given that it’s engagement season, timing for a new round of “Something Blue” couldn’t be better. First, a little history on the “Something Blue” saying.

The tradition of a bride carrying, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”), comes from an Old English saying. These items were carried by a bride to ensure good luck in her marriage. In America, the sixpence is often substituted for a penny, but there are places you can simply order a sixpence from if you wish to hold strongly to the tradition. “Something old represents the link with the bride’s family and the past. Many brides choose to wear a piece of antique family jewelry or a mother’s or grandmother’s wedding gown. Something new represents good fortune and success in the bride’s new life. The wedding gown is often chosen as the new item. Something borrowed is to remind the bride that friends and family will be there for her when help is needed.” -http://daytorememberblog.blogspot.com/2008/03/history-about-something-old-something.html

I hope you enjoy these bits of “Something Blue.” How do you plan on honoring the tradition?

Friday’s Favorites: This Week’s Roundup Etsy Style

Happy Birthday to Me! I woke up to breakfast in bed, prezzies, and most of all a very sweet voice mail from my kiddo who’s at his grandma’s until Sunday. He and I have been playing a bit of phone tag today, so hopefully we’ll be able to chat in person.

I’ve got some great Etsy treasures that go along with this week’s posts. We are fast approaching the holiday season and I encourage you to support individually owned businesses and artisans not just with your wedding shopping, but with your holiday purchases as well. Handcrafted and quality vintage presents abound at sites like Etsy and Wedzu and I’m sure you will find fabulous wedding details you just won’t find anywhere else. Take care and have a great weekend.
