{a bridesmaid's funky friday}

Happy Friday to all my friends, brides (both past, present and future)! You all have been so fabulous this last year and I am so happy with how things are shaping up in 2011! Just thought I should let yall know!

Anyhoo, I had run into some roadblocks in trying to come up with something fun for Funky Friday this week! (I almost felt like I couldn't top the Its all about the Shoe Funky Friday but I am loving these beautiful handmade finds! Have I mentioned my love affair with Etsy?! Really and truly, its amazing!

These are beautiful for those winter or even spring weddings, when the weather is crazy and you never know if its going to be 36 degrees or 63 (as is evidence of this last week of weather!)

Or what about this super cute and vibrant bridesmaid dress?

Or what about these adorable clips? They can be made into hair clips or added to satin and be the cutest sash to have strutted down the aisle!

So if you feel like ditching the bridal salon and want to go the handmade route...Etsy is where you shall visit!!

So today is Friday (hooray!), and that means it's time to post some awesome finds from etsy! There's always so much new stuff to look at while browsing the "wedding" section, and it's generally hard to narrow it down to one post's worth of stuff... but I managed. Ha.

This week features a little inspiration for your head: some great alternatives to the traditional veil. There are three different options posted below, and each one caters to a different wedding style.

For a vintage inspired look, the Bandeau Style Birdcage Veil:
