D.I,Y. Classic Red Rose Wedding

If you're looking for a more classic style for your wedding, red roses and black tuxedos always work.

The 'Rose' gown by Conscious Elegance on Etsy is gorgeous and retails for less than $1,000. Each handmade dress can be fully customized for your wedding and colors.

The Elegant Red Rose Wedding Invitations are from the A La Mode Bride shop on Etsy, retailing for around $3 each. They have a bold, classic look, perfectly matching both the dress and the Engraved Wedding Champagne Flutes from The Wedding Gallery shop on Etsy, which would make a perfect gift for bride & groom.

The D.I.Y. projects below are amazing, easy to do, and would save you a bit of money which will come in handy because roses, as a wedding flower, are not cheap.

  1. Hello Sunshine!

    I was doing an image search to see where my stuff was being put online, and I found this page. That was so incredibly awesome of you to include a mention of my 'Rose' dress and a link to my etsy page. What a lovely surprise!

    I've read a few more of your blogposts and your stuff is great! Very much up my alley. I wish I could write like that. Thanks again for the kind words and a nicely written article - it truly made my day.
