D.I.Y or Not, Etsy Will Be Your Friend!

If you have not been on Etsy before, uh…that means you live under a rock!  All kidding aside, Etsy in my opinion is probably the most amazing thing to hit the internet (yes, better than Facebook and Instagram)!  Having direct access to crafters, seamstresses, jewelers and boutique owners across the county is a HUGE  advantage.  Weather you are in search of invitations, bridesmaids gifts, hair accessories, aisle runners, fabric or any other detail, Etsy is the place to go!

Here are some amazing ideas that you can use to make your wedding unique and they are all in one place.

Happy planning and your are welcome!

Be sure to click on each picture to take you to that shop!

Use wallpaper as an aisle runner or custom photo station backdrop!  You can also use it inside a vintage suitcase as a gift card holder.

An Instagood Year at Glendalough!

Wow!  I can not believe that it is December and we are about to be in 2016.  We are going on twelve years now since we opened the doors at Glendalough and we are incredibly thankful for our brides, grooms families and wedding guests along the way.  As with all of our social media outlets, I just love seeing pictures on the guests each weekend having a great time.  After all, entertaining your guests and making sure they have a memorable time is half the fun of your wedding day.

I have chosen some of my favorite Instagram pictures posted by guests that attending our weddings in 2015!

Enjoy and happy planning!
