If you’re looking for straight-up simply gorgeous wedding stationery, then this shop is for you. A great selection but not too big (295 items). With simply beautiful & modern designs. This shop also offers Save the Date Magnets and Photo Invites which not a lot of shops that I found do that. They also have seperate listings for special extras such as custom orders & envelope addressing. Which, if you can afford it, is a great way to ease some wedding stress! Definitely worth checking out.

This lovely little shop stole my heart! It doesn’t have the biggest selection out there, but it surely makes up for it in quality & cuteness! She sells wedding stationary, and accessories like ring bearer pillows. But also some very adorable “will you be my bridesmaid ” gifts. Plus some little “he put a ring on it” tags for the bridal shower wine glasses – too cute! If you like Burlap, Paper Lace, Sunflowers & Kitties (Hands up! ✋ Me me!) then check out this shop. You won’t be disappointed.

5. ShopPaperGarden

My eyes caught one of the gorgeous watercolor designs from this shop as soon as it popped up on my screen. This shop offers stationary for all occasions, but mostly weddings. She also offers her one of a kind designs as printable downloads. Which I think is awesome. Another item that caught my eye was her personalized photo guest books. Very neat & unique! The selection is a good size (142 items). As of late, Watercolor anything is becoming reeeaaally popular in the wedding world. And I, for one, totally hopped on that train right away! 💖 I looove watercolors. They can be bright without being too ‘in your face’ bright. The perfect way to add pops of colour to your event. And this little lady right here has got some serious talent! Hope to see lots more from her in the future!

Jean-Ralph Thurin ~ Spring 2016 Bridal Collection

Happy Saturday My Dears! Have I got a treat for you today! 😁❤ I came across a wedding gown designer of the most inspiring sort. Not only are Mr. Jean’s gowns totally to die for, but where he gets his inspiration for his collections is just so unique! I know most designers use different inspirations in their collections, but the ones Jean picks are just so different to me. For example, his current Fall 2015 collection was inspired by the delicate details of Fabergé Eggs. How unique is that? I love it! (if ya couldn’t already tell lol). That and a lot of times it is really hard to see the inspiration when looking at the gowns. But not here! I can honestly say the inspiration is very evident in these gorgeous creations :mrgreen:.
His newest Spring 2016 collection is inspired by all the different “Bond Girls” from the 007 James Bond series of movies. Soooo freaking awesome because I loooove James Bond movies! Daniel Craig, Shawn Connery & Eva Green~ Hello!! 💖💖💖 So get your Pinterest buttons warmed up….here we go!….

I sure hope you enjoyed this post. See all you lovelies next time! Have a great rest of the weekend ! :):)💖💖♌

*New Feature* ~ Etsy Finds of the Week

🌻🌻 Hello my lovelies! I bring to you today a new feature for my blog – “Etsy Finds of the Week”. I am forever finding myself looking on Etsy.com. A lot of the time because I’m on Pinterest, pinning away, and I will click on a pin to find the source and so many many times I end up on Etsy.com. I’m sorta OCD about my pins saying the correct person or place they came from, for example, making sure the right designer of a wedding gown gets credit ect… Which in turn leads me to all sorts of little gems I wasn’t expecting to find! 😁
So I thought, If I’m already spending the time and effort into this, I might as well share them with all of you as well. So here is my first list of Etsy.com finds of the week!

This week I decided to showcase Pink, Blush & Floral Wedding Gowns. The popularity of the “not quite white” wedding dress is very evident on Etsy. Lots of Vintage & New options for anyone who dares to go pink. ~Just a word to the wise, be careful you don’t end up looking like your headed to Prom instead of your Wedding. It can be a pretty thin line (unless that’s what you want then of course totally Rock it! ❤) Hope you enjoy!
