Wedding inspiration : Lord of the Rings

As noted in this Star Wars-inspired post, I recently made some printable wedding invites to go in my little Etsy shop Paperling. Rather than the usual flowery fare, I decided to create something a little different and have illustrated invites I hope will appeal to fans of fantasy and sci-fi.

Here’s a look at the Lord of the Rings wedding invitation set featuring the union of Arwen & Aragorn…

Inspiration board : a watercolour wedding

It’s been far too long since I brought you an inspiration board, so I am rectifying that right here and now!

The artist in me can’t help but adore all the watercolour wedding inspiration I’ve seen dotted around the internet lately.

And so, I was inspired to bring some images together for you in a board I hope you’ll find as beautiful as I do…

Competition: win a £100 Etsy gift card!

Long time readers of this blog may well have gathered I love Etsy.

So much creativity. So much inspiration. And so much awesome stuff for your wedding!

It’s crossed my mind before that Etsy gift cards would be an excellent idea, however as Etsy is made up of different shops I deemed it impossible. Well, last year those clever people over at Etsy launched gift cards in the US, with over 40,000 being sold in the first two months!

And now they’re bringing them over here – YAY!

Gift cards are now also available in two further currencies: GBP and EUR.

Perfectly timed for Christmas, these will make the perfect present for those that love the handmade. Even if the recipient hasn’t heard of Etsy, I promise you, they will find something they love over there!

You can find out more about the launch and buy your own gift cards here

BUT FIRST…

Awesome competition time!

To celebrate the launch Etsy have kindly given me one £100 gift card to pass on to one of you lucky lot!

All you have to do is comment on this post with one of your favourite Etsy finds worth under £100!

Although you could buy anything you please with your Etsy gift card, I thought I’d give you a little idea as to some of the beautiful wedding finds over there with some autumnal inspiration…

Wedding inspiration : DIY dye dipped dress

A little while back I featured an inspiration board on a trend that seems to have gained some momentum in wedding world: the dipped trend…

Do it yourself-able

I’m a little in love with this trend as it lends itself to so many DIY projects. And one of those projects could even be the dress!

The very reason I’m sharing this inspiration board again is because I came across an incredible wedding captured by Lacie Hansen on Style Me Pretty, featuring this dress…

Wedding Inspiration dipped dress

The dress is apparently a 
Junko Yoshioka creation and although it appears to be a rare find it did get me thinking of how you could buy a cheap simple dress off eBay and dip dye it to make a totally unique, stand-out piece.

Here’s a tutorial I found to do just that. What do you think? Too risky? Or well worth a try with a dress that doesn’t break the bank?
