I was searching today on etsy and found this fun idea for bridesmaid dresses. It’s a convertible dress that your girls can choose how they want to wear it. Here is some info from the etsy shop
“Bridesmaid dresses you’ll actually want to wear again…and again!
Made from high-quality jersey satin fabric, the Jersey Maid dress is a great option for showcasing each bridesmaid’s personal style while creating one uniform look!
These dresses are also prefect for everyday wear as well!
Wear it casual, wear it formal, perfect for travel!”
The seller Erin currently offers the dresses in 5 colors. The easiest part is it’s one size fits 2-14 so no stress on ordering the right size. She lists the measurements for what the dresses fit so you can be sure it will fit. She also offers a discount if you buy 4 or more dresses. The photos from the shop are all from actually customers.

I think brides are more often looking at alternatives to flowers these days. I did a search for favors on etsy today and found this great option for favors or even centerpieces. Succulent Designs offers these amazing wreaths, but my favorite are the tiny succulents in the containers perfect for favors. I love how they look all lined up. They would look great on a long table with a row of these as centerpieces and then every guest would also get to take one home as a favor. You could fill it in with some lovely white candles or a few larger arrangements of succulents. I love when things can be used in 2 ways!
A bit about the shop owner: “I have been an avid container gardener for over 35 years, with a particular passion for designing with succulents. Now that I am retired and our children are grown and out of the nest, I’m blessed to be with my husband of 30 years and our beloved dogs on a stunning piece of acreage in the mountain foothills in our great southwest. I grow hundreds of succulent plants, sedum, cacti, and herbs here, and have been designing and creating succulent wreaths for a number of years. It is such a joy to be able to supplement our retirement income with something that brings me joy and fulfullment, and to bring beauty to others as well. Thank you so very much for visiting!
“If you’re having a succulent-themed wedding, I have packages available at discounted prices that can include wreaths or large dish garden plants, plants for favors, bouquets, corsages, boutinnieres, and if you have other ideas, let me know! I can also accomodate bridal or baby showers, corporate gifts, or just any special occasion. Drop me a convo, I’d love to meet you!”
Head on over to her shop if you are looking for something unique for your centerpieces and favors.
I found this on one of the blogs I read (shout out to Making it Lovely). She does a weekly round up of things she finds on the interwebs that are just so great she wants to share them. She shared these paper cameras by etsy seller Mel Stringer (you can read her blog at www.melstringer.blogspot.com)
Are you ready for super cute paper cameras!!!! First are some Polaroid cameras (they even come with little illustrations in the style of Polaroid prints) Next up are a stylized simple camera. She says when she draws cameras this is the style she usually draws.

I just had to share this etsy seller. The great thing about her cameras are they are pdf files that you get to print out so you can print out as many as you want or need. I’m envisioning these being used a little party favors or a party activity to do with kids. Prue is totally having a camera themed birthday party now!!
