Etsy Wedding on Browse

The new browse system on Etsy is making it easier than ever for brides to find awesome handmade items from some of the best small-business vendors in the world.

If you haven't taken a look at their new system, which categorizes items into different sections like "Garters" or "Veils", I would definitely spend at least a few minutes going through the Pinterest-like-browser Etsy has no adopted!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am huge fan of Etsy, and it's definitely a good resource for finding handmade wedding items that you don't feel comfortable making yourself.

P.S. Happy Friday! If you're getting married this weekend, love and congratulations from Joe and I!

Happy Halloween!

Would you ever consider a Halloween themed wedding?!

My sister and her fiancé are huge Halloween fans, and I've been subtly hinting that they should have a Halloween themed wedding.

Now, I know that that's really not their style as a couple, but I think it'd be a lot of fun. And it doesn't have to be creepy or haunting, it can also be beautiful. Click on the image below to view a wonderful Halloween themed wedding via Green Wedding Shoes to get some inspiration!

1,000 Pearl Bouquet

Although flower bouquets are always going to be classically beautiful, I do love alternative bouquets like this 1,000 acrylic pearl bouquet from Bridal Bouquets by Ky for winter weddings.

It's romantic and can be used for an indoor and outdoor wedding. The plus side of alternative bouquets is also that you don't have to worry about them flopping or overheating or getting ruined as much as you would a flower bouquet.

Of course, they aren't for everyone, but they are an option that's still pretty!

Inspiration Board #36: Bridal Crowns

I love silk flower crowns! They're so romantic to me.

If you're disliking the idea of wearing a veil, a bridal flower crown is a great alternative. The following are five of my favorite handmade wedding crowns found on Etsy that are each unique and beautiful on their own.

Interested on making your own? A Practical Wedding has an awesome floral crown DIY.

Sunday Love Tunes (Returns!)

Sunday Love Songs from HMWeddingBlog on 8tracks Radio.

After my playlist maker stopped offering embed playlists, I had to find a new site to host Sunday Love Tunes on, and I found an AWESOME one. I am in love with 8tracks Radio, a website that lets you build a playlist by searching or uploading music. I hope you all enjoy the return of Sunday Love Tunes. And don't forget to check back next weekend for all new tracks!
