Inspiration for your road to the altar

Etsy RoundUp

October 8, 2009

The Etsy Handmade blog – The Storque – recently posted a roundup of some wedding items that are too good not to share again here. There is not a chance I am stylish enough to pull off some of these beautiful pieces (mainly that veil) but oh how I wish I could! You can find the beautiful Helen veil in austie’s shop:

These adorable white flower bouquet earrings are made from deconstructed plastic, and can be found in raquelcastillo’s shop:

Oldage is selling this vintage mini dress for only $64! Truly the perfect attire for a shower or rehearsal dinner:

I know the concept of a wedding day clutch isn’t for everyone, but personally mine proved to be really useful. And the detailed silver design on this clutch from Briana Edelman Designs means you’re sure to use it after the wedding is over:

It’s quite possible these are the cutest coin purses I’ve ever laid eyes on. They would make lovely bridesmaids gifts, or possibly even a little something for your flower girl (maybe filled with some of her favorite trinkets). Many more adorable styles available at nonsuch.

If I didn’t know better, I would say that jcrew messes with me (do I actually know better? They might be messing with me). I wanted a pair of shoes from the summer sale. I put them in my little online cart on a day that the sale was an extra 20% off, and then The Guilt sank in. I decided to think about it and if I really wanted them the next day I would order. Went back that night and the 20% off had expired like an hour earlier…ugh! Long story short, I waited 2 weeks and ordered the shoes on Monday for fear they would run out of my size. And what happens today? Extra 20% off on the sale. See? They’re messing with me.

But anyway, you all should now take advantage of the sale if you’re still in the market for bridesmaids dresses, honeymoon attire, or even mother of the bride dresses. I think the dress pictured above would be adorable as a bridesmaid dress, but you could definitely pull it off for a rehearsal dinner too. I think this could even work as a modern mother of the bride dress for a casual wedding:

And I still think this would make the cutest bridesmaids dress ever: I am also happy to report that the satin clutch everyone (or at least me) has been coveting is finally on sale. Normally $99, with the sale and 20% off its $55!
