Colette Boho Wedding Gown – Flora and Lane at Etsy

 

Buying your wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of getting married. Whether you’re looking for a traditional fairytale dress, something more whimsical or beautifully boho, or you’re on the hunt for a gown that is outright unique, there’s a style out there for every bride.

 

It can be a little daunting to know where to begin though, as there is so much choice. Browsing wedding magazines and looking online at wedding blogs, wedding dress websites and of course Pinterest can give you a little direction in terms of styles that you like, just to get you started.

 

Etsy is another haven for all things wedding related, including wedding dresses! If you decide that a bohemian wedding gown could be the look for you, then be sure to check out Flora and Lane. Self-described as ‘a bridal label for cool babes that showcase true inner beauty while looking effortlessly modern’ the beautifully detailed, super-lightweight, luxe boho dresses that fill this gorgeous collection would be ideal for a destination wedding.

 

Prices vary depending on whether you order the dresses in standard sizes or as made to measure, so take a browse through the full Flora and Lane Etsy shop to get an idea of the full price options.

Cactus Theme

Leather Cactus Pouch £30.06 – Amelie Mancini at Etsy

 

Whilst researching for last week’s Cactus Wedding Theme Ideas feature I discovered the amazing print designer Amelie Mancini and her Etsy shop.

 

Amelie’s patterns show her love for the botanical realm – cacti and ferns in particular. Yes, the colourful cactus is taking over the design world and you won’t be able to resist the prickly prints in this collection!

 

These cute cactus inspired ideas would make lovely destination wedding thank you gifts and the pretty pouches would make perfect make up bags for destination brides-to-be or bridesmaids.

 

Do browse around the Amelie Mancini Etsy shop for yourself as there’s plenty more gorgeous styles to take a peek at….

These beautiful ceramic tile coasters are ‘more then just coasters’ they are ‘little squares of happiness’ says their maker Tilissimo at Etsy, and I would wholeheartedly agree!

 

There are so many delightful styles to choose from, so be sure to take a peek at the Tilissimo at Etsy shop and browse the full collection!

 

I love the travel themed tiles (of course) but I think that they would all make great wedding presents or thank you gifts or they could be used to decorate your wedding tables, one for each guest, to be taken home from your destination wedding as a favour. They would brighten your wedding tables or continue your travel theme and make unusual gifts. The customised number tiles could also be used to display your wedding tables numbers.

 

So if you’ve taken to these tiles as much as me, you’ll be picking up a set for your home, for gifts and for your destination wedding!

These darling destination prints would make ideal wedding gifts or anniversary presents for couples getting married abroad, or they could be used as simple additions to a destination wedding’s décor.

 

Place the ‘Pop, Fizz, Clink,’ ‘Cheers Darling’ or ‘Happy Hour’ print in a fancy frame to jazz up your wedding bar or drinks station, use palm tree prints with different countries on and in frames for your table names or go for a combination of prints around your destination wedding venue to add to your travel theme.

The latest lovelies to catch our eye are these adorable badges from Beth Of All Trades.

Insanely cute and utterly versatile – a win, win we say.

 

These beautiful badges would be perfect to hand out to your guests if you’re having a mini hen or stag party when you get to your destination wedding location, or simply for your bridal shower back home.
