Etsy Find: Florrie Mitton Couture

Posted in Attire, Etsy, General wedding at 10:49 am by Andrea

I’m still not 100% sold on the idea of wearing a garter. After all, we aren’t having a garter toss. And I can’t help but think that having, what is essentially, a big rubber band around my thigh might be less than comfortable. But I kind of think The Guy might like the idea. And then I do things like stumble upon these lovelies in the Florrie Mitton Couture shop and  I started to think that I would be crazy not to have a garter if they can be this pretty.

Goddess Beaded Garter

Je T’aime Lace Garter

Forever Lace Garter

Aphrodite Beaded Garter

The prettiness is overwhelming, no? If I do wear a garter, I’m pretty sure I’ll be paying a visit to this Etsy shop to purchase it.

If you aren’t doing a garter toss, are you still wearing a garter? Anyone else feel like maybe it’s just another cog in the wheel of the Wedding Industrial Complex (but such a pretty one!)?

Etsy Find – Timeless Paper

Posted in Etsy at 10:08 am by Andrea

I have been in love with Etsy for ages.

It started with the purchase of a simple necklace (that I still wear all the time) in 2007, and has spiralled out of control since then! We even got our save the dates on Etsy from the same vendor who’d created beautiful shower invites for the bridal shower I hosted for my MOH last year.

I’ve tagged a lot of favourites in the hours I’ve spent sucked into the Etsy vortex. But today let’s talk about Timeless Paper.

At some point PP (pre-proposal) I stumbled on Timeless Paper while looking for interesting place card ideas. They offer really pretty and unique place cards and menus that look so beautifully delicate and could tie in so well with any theme you are planning to carry throughout all the wedding details.
