Wedding Wednesday

I'm starting a new weekly feature: wedding Wednesdays. Each week Wednesdays will be devoted to all things wedding whether it's suggestions and ideas, items from Etsy shops that have wonderful wedding items, interviews, shared stories of weddings and engagements and pretty pictures. Here are a few lovely things from Etsy to get us started

Giftbearer's Carmella Collection is beautiful and the procedes all go to a great cause. Stop by her shop and check out her blog for some lovely beaded ideas

KittyKatKards has some awesome origami that can be personalized to ask your attendants, family, or anyone else in a special way to be a part of your special day

A Dusy Attic does alphabet photography and can create an original with your new last name on it - great gift idea!

One of the most important things (next to the dress) that you will wear is jewelry - for both the brides and the wedding party. Here are two shops with absolutely gorgeous jewelry

For girls in pearls:

Be sure to check out JED bridal - they're have a beadkit give away on their blog as well

Head over to Vibrant Vows - they have gorgeous, original jewelry as well. Here's one of their sets of bobby pins that are perfect for any hair do

Can you tell I love pearls?

At a wedding, the more personal touches you add the more the day reflects you and your spouse. For some unique centerpieces and candle holders check out Confections in Glass They have an entire line of centerpieces and welcome custom orders.

Nutfield Weaver has a great collection hand woven items for weddings such as petal cones, ring pillows and garters

This beautiful ring pillow can be custom ordered with your intial and color

Crafts for a cure has some super cute sets of wedding invitations. Be sure to stop by their shop - all proceeds go to Susan B Kohlman 3 day for the cure

Java girls has a line of bridal journals - this could be used to keep lists and jot ideas for your wedding, gifts for bridesmaids, to keep a journal of all the time leading up to your wedding or as a one of a kind guest book - check out their photo albums for some great gift ideas too
