Friday’s Favorites: “I Do Garlands” and “All a Flutter Over Red and Blush”

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!

Wedding Wednesday: Black and White Butterfly Masquerade

Today’s Wedding Wednesday was inspired by this amazing cake (see board below) from Gimme some Sugar Custom Cakes in Las Vegas, NV. Gimme Some Sugar is a custom cake design studio with some truly amazing creations. In addition to the gallery on their site, here is a link to their Flickr page with even more fabulous cakes. Seriously, their cakes are jaw droppingly gorgeous and I could look at their work all day!

Many couples often pair a stand out color with a black and white palette, but I think that a simple black and white palette works beautifully on its own. After finding these gorgeous butterfly masquerade masks, I had my inspiration board theme. I hope you enjoy it!

Friday’s Favorites: Sunken Ships and Butterflies

Happy Friday! Can you guess what I’m looking forward to this weekend? Sleeping in and the Great Bridal Expo here in Denver, but mostly…sleeping in. 🙂

Today’s Friday’s Favorites brings us two lovely Etsy treasuries based on this week’s posts on Titanic inspired Edwardian themed wedding and my love of butterflies. Both treasuries today have a dusky muted palette that when taken together, you could realistically create a singular theme. If you combine the two, just be sure to have one dominant idea with the other being secondary so as not to be too busy.

I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Theme Thursday: Mariposa

Today’s Theme Thursday is coming to you a bit earlier than usual. We in Colorado are having some wicked crazy wind along with a big temperature drop and since my head is a barometer, I was awoken by one seriously bad headache. Now that my headache is gone and I’m fueled by caffeine, I’m actually up before the sun. Make note of it, it doesn’t happen very often. 😉

Anyhoo, this week I wanted to focus on a theme that isn’t so campy. I adore butterflies and typically you see butterfly themed weddings in brights and pastels set in a garden. This inspiration board takes butterflies out of the garden and puts them in the midst of a black and white glamour fete. My fave in the set has to be the over the top absolutely gorgeous Alexander McQueen heels!
