If there’s one thing I love almost as much as weddings, it would have to be Christmas! The cheesy songs, the twinkly lights, the good excuse to snuggle up in a onesie and, of course, the shopping! The opportunity to combine the two makes this season of blogging my absolute favourite!
Are you planning a winter wedding or looking for some festive inspiration? Those of you who follow the blog will undoubtedly recall my rather steamy and passionate affair with Etsy, the world’s leading online market place for handmade prettiness (missed it? Check it out here!). What better way to kick off the festive season than to get cosy and devour this round up of the best winter wedding finds on Etsy this week…
1. These personalised Christmas wedding favour bags, £4.50 for 10, are one of the cutest little finds for the festive season! Personally, I can’t get enough of the rustic kraft version, but these are also available in a range of four additional colours. Fill with a yummy gingerbread bride or groom, add a candy cane, and you’ve got your favours all wrapped up! Order yours here, from UK based seller Bjarki Design.
2. This gorgeous gold flower clip, £25, makes a statement piece for any winter bride or her maid of honour and is versatile enough to be worn again and again after the wedding day itself. Available here, from UK based seller Ivory Rose.
3. How could I not include these super fun, festive photo props? A brilliant take on the photo booth trend, this 20 piece set is sure to keep your guests ‘merry and bright’! Available from Pure Simple Things, at £16.86 (+p&p).
Don’t forget that Valley Brides are always on the look out for inspiring real winter weddings to feature on the blog. , If you recently got married or are getting married and are based in the Thames Valley and fancy having your name up in lights (well, virtual lights at least!), please contact us to submit your wedding.
