Monday’s Finding: Sneak Peek: Third Annual Etsy Virtual Bridal Show

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!

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!
