Friday’s Favorites: Etsy Treasuries: Delicate Baby’s Breath, Ravishing Red, Memento Mori, and Bridal Headwear for Short and Sassy Hair

Well, I’m looking forward to a bit of hopefully real snow in Denver tonight and tomorrow. I’m hoping that 30% chance ends up being a few inches. We’ve had our first snow already, but none of it survived past noon the same day. I’d love to put on my snow gear and have a snowball fight with my kiddo. Now, on with the show!

This Friday’s Favorites has SO many great wedding details I can hardly stand it. Of course, this old goth’s heart skips a beat with the Memento Mori treasury, but I think my favorite is the gorgeous red bridal gown from Avail & Company (an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team Member). Here it is in all of its glory:

Wedding Wednesday: Memento Mori Inspiration

It’s been a little bit since I have done an inspiration board for Wedding Wednesday. I’m really excited about this one as it speaks to my old gothic heart.

You gotta love "The Onion."

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is inspired by Victorian era mourning attire and most especially, memento mori (Latin: “remember you will die”). Memento mori are items such as jewelry, statuary, and art that are designed to remind one of the frailty of human life and to live this life to it’s fullest potential. We often vow to our love to love him or her “until death do us part,” so why not demonstrate that undying love with a bit of memento mori?

Art by Zerobriant: http://www.zerobriant.com/

Here is a bit of momento mori wedding inspiration for you followed by an Etsy treasury with some great items to supply you with a healthy reminder of your pledge to your betrothed.
