Etsy Thursday: Hummingbird Wedding

Hummingbird Wedding – Etsy Wedding Finds

This week’s Etsy Thursday is filled with lovely hummingbirds. Since the start of Spring I have noticed these lovely and intriguing birds all over and thought that they would be perfect for a Spring wedding theme. Hummingbirds are special and I always enjoy catching a glimpse of one – I’ll think you will love today’s hummingbird inspiration compiled of beautiful Etsy wedding finds!

Etsy Thursday: Dandelion Wedding

Dandelion Etsy Wedding Inspiration

I LOVE Dandelions and have noticed them increase in popularity over the past year. More artists and designers are incorporating it into their work and I’ve noticed more lovely Dandelion tattoos on folks. This week I thought it would be fun to share an Etsy Thursday post on Dandelion wedding inspiration from some awesome Etsy shops. For this post I decided to go with a rustic feel but in case you are interested in more colorful options, you should know that I did see quite a few lovely, colorful Dandelion wedding finds on Etsy. In addition to infusing colors, dandelions would also be perfect for an elegant black and white theme, whimsical theme, or vintage wedding theme.

Etsy Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day Wedding

St. Patricks Day Wedding Inspiration

Kiss me I’m Irish and Happy early St. Patrick’s Day! Like everyone else I have always remembered this holiday for green, clovers, luck, and pinches when I forgot to wear green. By the way, are you wearing green today? If not – virtual pinch for you! I can identify with St. Patrick’s Day because of it’s religious sentiments and culture – my great-grandmother was Irish. As you may know by now I like to provide creative Etsy wedding inspiration for creative themes and holidays, so this week’s Etsy wedding collection is all about GREEN for St. Patty’s Day!

Etsy Thursday: Polka Dot Wedding

Polka Dot Wedding Inspiration

 

Polka Dots are just so fun and super cute! I thought I would take this popular pattern and put together a beautiful post of all my amazing polka dot Etsy wedding finds! For this particular post I decided to use the traditional Black & White Polka dots (with a little bit of gold and mustard accents) and transition to Black & Ivory Polka Dots by the end of the post. If you are interested in a polka dot themed wedding, there are so many color options available, you don’t have to just go with the traditional black and white. Polka dots can also be tastefully and artfully combined with other patterns like stripes & chevron or simply add an accent color like the gold, mustard, and blue below. You can also reverse the polka dots – i.e. black dots and white background or white dots and black background – and use these together! As you will see below, polka dots are very versatile, fun, and can be very elegant!

Etsy Thursday: Gold Sequin Wedding

Gold Sequin Inspired Wedding

Last month I decided to join the buzz and share my wedding trend predictions for 2013. One of my wedding trend predictions was the increased use of  SEQUINS in weddings. Why? They are cheap, lovely accents, a decorative element we are seeing more use of in fashion, and simply, they just look amazing! This week’s Etsy wedding finds are comprised of the oh so lovely and elegant gold sequins.

Wedding Finishing Touches & Unique Details

BY GUEST BLOGGER, GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS

4200f74dc39d96a94d9a7fed244ca9c4

In my ebook, 663 Must-Have Wedding Ideas, I end with a section called, appropriately, finishing touches. Those unique little details you can add to your wedding ceremony and reception that will really leave your guests in awe! Below is just a small excerpt from my ebook:

 Set up a bench in front of a scenic area at your reception, like the wedding cake display, and have a friend or relative take guests photos (like a prom photo kind of idea). Include the photo in your thank you notes.

Use a camera cell phone to help far away friends and relatives experience your wedding in near real-time. Take a picture of the two of you leaving the church in your limo, post to your Facebook page or e-mail the photo and then call the recipient. You could use Skype as well.

 A yard of beaded trim is not expensive, usually about $2 and can be found in the notions section of any fabric or craft store. It’s an inexpensive way to dress up tablecloths, bridesmaids’ dresses, gloves, wraps, even place cards.

 To keep kids busy at an outdoor wedding, put them behind a lemonade stand to serve guests non-alcoholic drinks.

 It’s expensive (under $1,000), but as your guests exit the church, how cool would it be to hire a small plane to fly over head pulling a banner that reads, “Congratulations to John & Stephanie, Who Just Got Married!”

Have your musicians continue playing outside after the ceremony to keep the celebration going, until all guests have departed the church.

 Create life-size photo cutouts of the bride and groom and put them at the door of the reception hall. Makes for great photographs.

 For an outdoor wedding, set up intimate conversation areas by using small tent cabanas that can house 8 to 10 guests.

 Give each guest a roll of paper streamers, ribbons and balloons as they leave the church and encourage them to quickly decorate their cars.

 Be sure to have some snacks available (nothing that can spill or stain clothes) in the limousine for your wedding party, particularly when you go off to take your photos.

 Be sure to honor both sets of parents and serve them the first piece of wedding cake.

 Ask your guests to do something specific for the wedding. Maybe you want them all to wear white, or all the women to wear hats, or everyone to hold a candle during the service.

My ebook is available at my Etsy shop. I’ll be back next Monday with more ideas….until thenGail.

New Ideas for Bridal Headpieces

BY GUEST BLOGGER, GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS
Maybe you are not a traditional girl and you are looking for something a little more dramatic for your wedding attire. Luckily bridal veils and head pieces have come a long way. Here are some ones to consider based on your personality.
yhst-81269699784480_2249_3815078372

The Goddess

This brass three tiered head piece from House of Harlow is ideal for the bride who wants to unleash her inner goddess. Now, in order to pull this off you need a certain type of dress and a certain type of hair style. It would be tough to pull off with an updo, so it is best suited for long flowing hair. As for your dress, try a halter dress or a grecian style gown with bell sleeves.
yhst-81269699784480_2249_2447355838

The Exotic

How about a head piece that is exotic in nature? The Litter SF Pyara Headpiece draws its inspiration from Indian weddings with its webbed triangular centerpiece. Again, you should consult your hairstylist for the style that would work best, but you could add a tulle veil to the bottom chain to mix the exotic withe the traditional.
 
02042013084729

The Minimalist

How simple but elegant is this gold feather headband from Free People? This could easily be worn with a variety of hairstyles and gowns. Because of the gold color it may stand out a little more on darker hair. Great way to accent a high top ponytail or chignon.
ericb2012929638_p1_1-0_150x296

The Vintage Bride

Definitely dramatic is this headband of floral Swarovski crystals from Erickson Beamon at ShopBop. With the Great Gatsby and the 1920s being a big wedding trend this year (we called it in August!), this headpiece makes the right statement for any bride looking for a little flapper girl inspiration. Great with a loose updo like this one as it really draws attention to the bride’s face.
93c87f09-4a96-4c68-b87a-328775d5d6be

The Boho

I love this Astral Headscarf in Ivory Tulle and Swarovski crystals from Johanna Johnson, giving the Bohemian bride a little elegance. Again, this headscarf would only work with a loose hairstyle or a low chignon, but it is a beautiful and unique bridal look.

I’ll be back next Monday with more ideas….until thenGail.

Valentine’s Day Wedding Theme Ideas

♥ GUEST BLOG BY GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS

Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to get married. Here are some fresh, new wedding ideas that will help add the Valentine’s theme to your day in a stylish way.

spring-2012-wedding-dresses-vera-wang-bridal-gown-non-white-dresses-red-15__full-560x840

Wedding Decorations with a Valentine Theme

  • If you don’t want to decorate exclusively in red, make the color scheme pink and white with small pops of red. Something like red chargers under the plates, one red flower in the middle of a pink bouquet, or red headbands on the bridesmaids.
  • Since roses are very romantic, scatter red rose petals down the aisle (if the church approves), as well as on the head table, buffet table and gift table. Bags of simulated rose petals can be purchased at most craft stores. 
  • At the reception make the backdrop behind the head table a drape of red satin.
  • For place cards, use miniature white plaster cupids (also available at any craft store) and pierce the guest’s heart-shaped place card through Cupid’s arrow.

195484440045419613_SwLFMCcR_c

Romantic Wedding Dinner Menu

  • If serving dessert, be sure to have the chef line the side of each plate with a heart piped in chocolate or raspberry sauce.
  • Offer guests a romantic chocolate drink like Godiva’s White Chocolate Liqueur when they arrive or at the end of the evening.
  • Embellish the wedding cake with small cinnamon candy hearts.

Valentine Wedding Attire

  • For a wedding gown, the bride could wear a red wedding dress if she dares, but otherwise she could just add hints of red, like small red crystals in the veil or dress train.
  • Bridesmaids could wear dresses of varying shades of red or, alternatively, different fabrics such as red velvet, red satin, red taffeta, and so forth.

red-letterpress-wedding-invitations

Other Valentine Wedding Ideas & Details

  • It will cost quite a bit more but use raised red velvet lettering on invitations, or have the inside of the envelope lined in red
  • Consider one of the original Valentine designs from the 1700s call the True Love Knot – a hand drawn maze of knotted loops with no beginning or end, for invite design
  • Plan to arrive at the church in a vibrant red car, such as the Saab 9-3 Convertible in Laser Red, the Jaguar XJ in Radiance Red or the BMW 7 Sedan in Merlot Red
  • Simple and inexpensive gestures include leaving a large opened heart-shaped box of chocolates on the gift table and beside the guest book. They’ll sign the book for sure.
  • When you want your guests to get the bride and groom to kiss, they must tell their own love story or the most romantic gesture they have ever received.
  • Instead of throwing the bouquet to the single women, randomly give each non-married female guest a single rose as a Valentine’s gesture. Put a fake diamond ring inside of one and whoever gets that one, is the next to get married.
