    Happy Friday, darlings! Since you’re in the midst of wedding planning, I’m sure you know Etsy is a dearth of amazing handmade goodness, often for fairly broke-ass friendly prices. From a fun guest book to a gorgeous gown to a wine-lover’s way to commemorate marriage milestones, this week’s Five for Friday is chock-full of great Etsy finds.

    Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses  Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses, $98+ by RenzRags

    I know BABs are into having their brigade choose their own style of dress, because one style doesn’t always work for everyone. These gorgeous dresses can come in different lengths and a whole swath of colors, and have a pretty nice price tag to boot.

    Etsy EKG Heart Necklace

    Heartbeat Necklace, $26 by HalalMill

    Your partner makes your heart go pitter-patter, so why not show that on your wedding day? This necklace would make a gorgeous day-of accessory.

    Etsy Drop Top Guest Book

    DropTop Wedding Guest Book, $145+ by ACFCustoms

    Yes, this one is a little spendy, but it’s an idea I have yet to see for a wedding guest book. Considering it reminds me of Connect Four (remember that game?) and will make a gorgeous piece of wall art after the big day, I’d say it’s worth a bit of a splurge.

    Bohemian Lace dress

    Bohemian Lace Wedding Dress, $470 by PolinaIvanova

    This dress caught my eye and I’m totally digging it. The lace detail is gorgeous, it looks soft and flowy, it has built-in bra cups and it’s under $500. That’s a lot of awesome for one dress.

    Etsy Marriage Milestone Wine Labels

    6 Custom Married First Wine Labels, $26.99 by LabelWithLove

    Calling all oenophiles! This is such a great idea — even better if the wine comes from friends and family in the form of engagement / wedding presents. Then you have a special bottle from a special person to celebrate those special milestones during your marriage.

    What do you think of these Etsy finds BABs?

    We got an email from a bride who has been invited to two other weddings this year, on the same day, on the other side of the country. Two. Yes, it’s definitely that time of year, not to mention that time of your life. Your wedding is not the only show …

    Love Heart Created By Clouds In Blue Sky And Building




    “It’ll be better before you get married.”

    This is something I’ve heard my whole life about all manners of injuries, from skinned knees to feeling heartbroken. I’m fairly certain it’s an Irish saying my grandmother brought over with her when she landed in Boston  Now I’m starting to wonder if that’ll …

    As you may recall, I interviewed a few of my favorite former brides just a few weeks ago, one of them being a bridesmaid of mine. She said something that I’ve been thinking about ever since.

    “Personalization, ‘made to order,’ catered to you = big bucks. There are ways

    We’re pretty pumped about Real Bride Elissa‘s very vintage color scheme. Her pretty palette takes shades of cool green-blue and contrasts them with warm orange and red for a sweet look that screams for some retro-feeling style. We’re thinking demure A-line gowns and lovely lace for your best girls …

    I guess my fiancé and I are a little bit hipster: We brew our own beer and kombucha; we adopt old shelter dogs; we get our coffee from the local coffee bean roaster; and we’re vegetarians. Good indie and alternative music is also important to us so coordinating the entertainment for our wedding …
