How I got into weddings: My first creations were bows and hairbands for my daughter. I was then asked by few of my friends to create headpieces for various special events.

After designing several headpieces for the Brides and the Bridesmaids, I got so many praise and encouragement , I realized that this was exactly what I wanted to do!

Picking Your Perfect Wedding Day Flowers

We asked Kate of KateSaidYes for her expert opinion on picking your perfect wedding day flowers.  Read on to hear what she had to say and be sure to check out her Etsy shop if you are considering silk and real touch flowers for your big day!

The flowers you use on your wedding set the stage for the tone of your day.  Formal and elegant?  Bright and cheerful?  Vintage chic?  There are different flowers for every theme, and for the newly engaged bride, the choices can be overwhelming.

Start with the theme and location of your wedding.  What are your wedding colors? Certain stems only come in specific colors, so if you have your heart set on peonies, you aren’t going to get them in blue.  Roses and calla lilies are great for more formal weddings, orchids and succulents fit in with tropical destinations, and daisies, hydrangeas, and lavender are perfect for outdoor and country weddings.

Cost is also a big factor when choosing your wedding flowers.  Hydrangeas are large, so they give you more bang for your buck.  Daisies, roses, carnations, and calla lilies are on the more affordable end of the spectrum, while orchids and peonies will have you spending more.  And of course, if you are buying out of season, always expect the cost to be higher.


Silk and real-touch flowers are a great alternative to live stems, as the colors can be a bit more customized, you don’t need to worry about anyone in your bridal party with allergies, and they are more cost-effective.  And as an added bonus, they last forever.  No more tossing your bouquet in the trash before you leave for your honeymoon!


Still feeling stuck?  Your florist or wedding planner can give you advice as to the best flower selection for your theme and budget.  Your flower arrangements don’t need to be large and overflowing – often a simpler, more petite arrangement will complement your dresses and venue just as well as expensive arrangements.  Have fun with your flowers, and remember – whichever stems you use, they will always remind you of your big day!



Purple Wedding Inspiration

From deep hues to lovely lilacs, purple has become a hot color for weddings…and not just for winter weddings. To help you use purple in many ways, here are some inspirational designs from the Etsy Wedding Team:

Go Deep
Want to use purple, but having a formal or traditional wedding? Go deep. Deep rich purples are classic and read more formal. This is especially true when paired with a touch of bling or rich fabrics, such as this dupioni silk hair piece. {handmade by percyhandmade}

Lighten Up
Adding white, light accents or crystals and pearls can really balance purple and give it a lighter feel, such as these vintage dark amethyst and crystal hair pins. {handmade by OriginalsByLynnette}

Start Early
As with any theme or mood you are setting for your wedding, it’s good to include them on your save the dates and wedding invitations to set the right tone. {handmade by arippke}

Finishing Details
The little details at your ceremony and reception can really pull your purple inspired look together.  So look for purple accents on your various wedding designs, such as a cake cutting set or special silverware for the married couple. {handmade by Beadz2Pleaz}
