That Friday Feeling...19/08/11

As you probably know by now, I'm in San Diego - it's my friend Jamie's wedding tomorrow! I'm super excited because a) I've never been to an American wedding and am not sure what it'll be like and b) I'm Maid-of-Honour! How cool is that? Anyway, I'm sure I'll be blogging about the wedding when I get back to the UK and have some gorgeous pictures, but for today I thought I would do an Etsy shout out based around weddings. Obviously that's a fairly huge theme so I have narrowed it down a little...

Love the idea of lace candle cups from KoalitaCraft

These magnets by KitzieG would be cute favours, wouldn't they?

Cute personalised ceramic favours by TaitGallery

Love the idea of crochet flower garlands instead of bunting by Baban 
Only a few fun facts for you today - I'm distracted with wedding fever!!

  • The longest wedding train on a dress recorded was 515 feet and was made in Germany
  • In 1992 in Seoul, 21,000 couples got married on the same day. 
  • In Hindu tradition it is considered lucky to rain on your wedding day... I'm going to remember that next time it rains at a wedding I'm at!
  • Princess Mary, one of Henry VIII's daughters was presented with an engagement ring at the ripe old age of 2. Yes, 2.
  • Valentine's Day and New Year's Day are the 2 busiest days for weddings in Las Vegas. And apparently approximately 7,000 weddings happen every day in the US...
  • According to English folklore Saturday is the most unlucky day to get married - and yet it is the most popular. Weird.
  • The custom of tiered cakes comes from a game where the bride and groom had to try to kiss over the top of ever taller cakes.
