It’s Time to Plan for Wedding Bells

January 19, 2012, 08:00 am  Posted by Lark

It’s winter and weddings are in the air. January and February are the biggest planning months for brides-to-be. With so many  decisions to be made—from THE dress to the place for the ceremony, all the way down to the small details like seating cards and wedding favors for the guest—it can be a bit overwhelming. So what’s a girl to do? One place to turn to for wedding inspiration is Etsy. There you can find everything from rings, invitations, and bouquets to yes, even THE dress. Most shops will happily customize items to the colors, font, and wording that will complement your wedding perfectly.
