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.
So I totally cheated this week and found this on the blog Wedding Chicks (which you should check out if you love looking at photos of weddings). I can’t take credit for finding this shop, but Cheryl (the owner) does amazing work so who really cares. She makes these adorable floral headbands (I see Prue sporting one in the near future!) that are perfect for your little flower girl or just for fun!
This is what Cheryl says about the shop “This is just the beginning and a small portion of the lovely handmade goods that are to come. I will be offering custom, handmade shoe-clips, hair accessories, lapel pins, corsages, bridal hairpieces and more. All pieces are made to order. Please allow 6-8 days for completion. If you need something in a hurry, I can add a “rush order” for a small fee. If you don’t see a certain color combination to suit you, please let me know.”

Love Days- A red flowery headband
Definitely head on over to Linden Lovebirds etsy shop and check out the headbands along with all the other great things she offers. I can’t wait to see what else she is going to add to the shop!
Okay, so I’m a little late today with the post. I have a good excuse though. We got another killer snow storm today so Prue didn’t go to daycare like she usually does on Wednesdays. We ran to the store around 7pm (cause we needed diapers) and that is when I realized I didn’t do a Wedding Wednesday Etsy Find today.
A quick search of Etsy’s wedding category and I found FINKShop. There isn’t too much info on her profile page, what I do know is she is from South Korea and “I love to make beautiful accessories with beads and fabric”
The shoe clips are what really caught my eye. It’s a huge bridal trend to have really cute shoes, whether that means they are a bright & fun color or just really fun & unique. I think these clips could give you the look of some of the higher end shoes at a fraction of the price.
These chiffon ones are really light and airy and would be great with any wedding dress.
