Treasury Tuesday - Peacock Weddings

I was thinking today how pretty aqua and teal look together, that led to thinking about a peacock themed wedding. Checkout Etsy for these great peacock finds. They have tons of great items in these beautiful jewel tones.

Austin Bridal Expo and PURPLE!

I have decided to kick things up a notch for 2011. I am going to be a vendor at the Austin Bridal Expo on March 6 at the Austin Convention Center. If you are in the Austin area, I would love to see you there! Details HERE.

I will have an ad coming out in the Austin Bridal Magazine and I have a store front on the Texas Wedding Mall Website. Now local brides should be able to find me as well as national brides through my Etsy shop!

I am excited, but still nervous about what the new year will bring!

Now on to colors... almost every order I have gotten in the last 3 weeks has included purple. I think purple is the "it" color for 2011.

Here are some new card orders using purple:

Thanks for sharing purple with me!

Treasury Tuesday - Red, Black & Damask

As you can probably tell, I love damask patterns. I think this color combo is especially beautiful for winter weddings. The damask lends a touch of elegance. I really love this. It would be beautiful for a Valentine's wedding too.

Check out this my treasury HERE on Etsy. Be sure to visit these shops. They have great finds in a wide selection of colors.

Thanks for visiting!

Etsy Flower Girls

Not only do Etsy sellers have a wide selection of Flower Girl dresses, but the the photography is so nicely done!

Some of these can double as holiday outfits, or other occasions.

This shop, Bella Bean Couture, has both beautiful dresses and gorgeous photography. (Makes me wish I had a little girl to dress up. My son wouldn't be thrilled about these outfits!)

Thanks for ooohing and awwww-ing with me!

Must See Etsy Shop - Zoe and Doyle

I lost my wedding band a long time ago and have always wanted to replace it. I just have never been able to find something unique or that stood out. I came across this Etsy shop Zoe and Doyle and just had to share it. The wedding bands are beautiful and colorful! Now I just have to decide which one I am going to buy.

I love this set! Masculine, but the ladies ring is still dainty. My husband lost his ring long ago too, so a set like this would be perfect!

This is such a great shape. From their description it looks like you can get this ring in whatever finish you want. They make the ring once you order it.

This one is great! The color can be changed to any that they offer.

Wood on ring? Stop the madness! How beautiful is this?

Their prices are great too, this ring is only about $60 and they can add engraving for a small additional cost.

I could go on and on because all the rings are worth mentioning. But click HERE to see their entire selections.

Thanks for browsing with me!

Chocolate and Wine Wedding + Pearls!

Had a client order cards that had a dark and rich color scheme: Dark Chocolate and Wine.

It brought to my mind an outdoor wedding at night with lots of lights and branches. So I had to make this treasury to showcase these great Etsy sellers!

One of my favorite things in the treasury are the great burgundy pearls. I didn't know you could get pearls in so many great colors!

These are from an Etsy shop Snow Jeweler

Thanks for taking a look!
