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!

Well lookie lookie, it’s Springtime…the time after all of those who got engaged over the Winter holidays venture out to begin the adventure that is wedding planning. How are all of those bridal shows treating you? As a bride, I found the big box bridal shows are quite helpful for locating vendors such as bakeries, caterers, rentals, etc., but all of the wedding style bits and bobs leave me saying, “not so much.” I want my wedding to express who my fiance and I are as a couple and as individuals. I want an “authentically you wedding do” as my tagline reads. So, what’s a couple to do when you prefer a wedding with personalized touches? Well, that’s what the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show is all about!
On March 18th, 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 create that one of a kind “authentically you wedding do!” This is our biggest and best year yet with over 440 Etsy shops! We are talking everything from bespoke couture gowns, rustic woodland details, and one of a kind bridal jewelry.The Etsy Virtual Bridal Show has got you covered.
So, how’s about a little sneak peek? Don’t forget to mark your calendars for March 18th!

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!

Are you dreading the idea of lugging a 25-pound dress on your wedding day? Don’t like dresses at all? Favor a more masculine look on your special day? Well, for those of you who would much rather skip the dress, but still retain that “bridal” look, I’ve got some great bridal pantsuit inspiration as well as straight off the runway finds I know you’ll love.
From Vera Wang to Roberto Cavalli, white/ivory pantsuits are a super chic way to be authentically you on your wedding day. Stay true to you and enjoy every moment feeling relaxed and comfortable in your wedding ensemble.
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!
