Victorian Ensemble

Like with all my creations I got to imagining what my bride would choose to wear as accessories on her big day. 
I found these amber and pearl earrings by LittleWhiteChapel that I thought were subtle with just a spark of excitement. This charming necklace by UmbrellaLaboratory is sure to keep you punctual. The red color and intricate design make it a perfect fit with a Victorian themed bride. ArtsyButterfly makes this lovely fabric and lace bouquet that will not wilt and makes a great heirloom after the wedding. This hand crocheted garter by MoesCrochet makes a perfect toss garter that has a great vintage look to it. PoshBridalCouture's rolled rose garter is sure to make his day. The pleated fan perfectly mirrors the bolero collar. Just lovely! And check out those spats. How adorable are they? These little cuties  slip on over your pumps wisking you away to a bygone era. To top it all off, I found this rolled rose headband by BeSomethingNew. It finishes the look off nicely don't you think?

Once I got to looking I found so many great wedding items that fit the wedding theme. Like these sparrow earrings. They would make lovely bridesmaid's gifts. 


RagTrader





These working compass cufflinks are fitting for the groom. A great way to hint that he can't lose his way. 


Secret Safe Books
I love this hollow book for the ring bearer's duties. It's made out of a copy of  I LOVE YOU BECAUSE by Beverly Clark. And it's small for tiny hands.

Then there are the paper goods. There are so many talented artists out there that it was difficult to limit myself to one selection. I can't get enough of the hot air balloon table numbers by CraftyPagan.  Then there are their EAT ME and DRINK ME tags. I can see them tied to wine bottles and tucked under these mini chocolate bar wrappers by ElizabethAO. They are ready to go on the chocolates of your choice, complete with the bride and groom's names and wedding date.

Queen of Cups
TheQueenofCups makes these little gift tags that would work as escort cards, place cards or any card need you may have. She even has one with a blue bird on them.

I did say I was having a difficult time choosing just one didn't I? 


I found this beautiful card/money box by LaceyClaireDesigns. How fitting to have a hatbox when the Victorian era was all about the beautiful hats that the ladies would wear.
