Wedding Details by Etsy

It's official. The day is shot. I have spent a solid four hours pouring over one of my favorite sites, Etsy. What I love about this site is that not only can you find tons of handmade wares by indie designers, you can also find some pretty amazing collectors items that are absolutely perfect for your wedding decor. Take these "vases" for example...

Wedding Details on Etsy

My day is being wasted scouring Etsy for more fun reception decor ideas (thanks to the oh-so-cuteness that is happening at Small Stump). So, rather than feeling bad about it, I am just going to call it market research and pass my finds along to you. These are journaling tags that would be so cute as table cards!

If you punched a hold at the top, then hung them...

Wedding Details by Small Stump

My best friend Katie, whose getting married in a couple of weeks, decided to do centerpieces based around those perfect birch bark vases by Small Stump that OhJoy! featured a while back. They are amazing. Well, as it turns out, the whole world thought they were pretty amazing too and they sold like hotcakes. Katie eventually found a set on Ebay, but has been...

She has some great ideas for having an eco-friendly affair, along with some fun resources for green entertaining that I had not seen before. Although most of the companies listed are based in Australia, they are still eye candy and are good for a few hours of inspiration.

Abby Jean Invitations, Maggie

To me, Maggie is the perfect marriage of old and new. It is engraved on superfine ecru paper using both a deep chocolate ink as well as a foiled platinum ink. The detailing is delicate and feminine. The end result reminds me so much of a beautiful antique book that has been infused with a modern sensibility...

Sunny Fall Flowers

I have already received a few emails from readers about the gorgeous flowers in the Christine Taylor style board below. The lovely creations were done be Valley Flora out of Napa Valley California...

Going along with our Fall color palette, I love these dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Jenny Yoo...in my opinion, two of the best designers currently out there...

The lace on the bridal gown is flirty and romantic, while the darker though still muted tones of the bridesmaids dresses, ground the palette and create a more formal look. Pair these looks with the below flowers...

Fall Wedding Palette

I love these toned down, muted Fall colors...

All photos and flowers by Seattle based event designer, Aria Floral.

Although the rich Fall reds, oranges and pinks are always gorgeous, I think that these subtle hues are so soft and romantic and are a nice change from the typical colors we see this season. I see them paired with vintage champagne saucers, delicate crystal chandeliers, white linens accented with vintage lace...
