Wedding Elegance {Katrina Alana GIVEAWAY}

There's something about spring time weddings...Some of the most beautiful weddings I've seen have been in the spring. One of them was near a rose garden, and it was picture perfect. 

I must admit, I was never one of those girls who dreamed about their wedding day. I didn't ever picture my dress, or think about how I would wear my hair. I didn't fantasize about a proposal, a ring, or any of that. Nope. Not at all. It may be really hard for some to believe, but I never had a dream wedding plan for myself. 

And then Pinterest came along, with all its gorgeous imagery of what could be for The Big Day...I created a board for Wedding Ideas, just for fun.

Elegance in weddings is something I've always admired. Such pretty things all around - from the flowers, to table settings, the cake, to [the big one] the dress. But many times, it can be the simplest of things that make it even more special for guests of the event. 

I always loved receiving the invites from friends for their weddings. Gorgeous calligraphy is one of my most favorite things ever!!! I used to have a few calligraphy pen sets when I was younger. I wasn't the best by far, but it was fun to write so elegantly.





After visiting Katrina Alana and seeing all of the pretty wax seal stamps, I would absolutely love to receive an invite with a wax seal! Wouldn't you? If I ever need to make some pretty invitations, I want to try using a wax seal. =0)



Katrina Alana offers custom wax seals, sealing wax, invitations and more. Whether you're planning your spring time wedding, or any other special event this season, this shop has what you need to give that extra-added elegance.



If you just so happen to be planning a special event, then you're in luck, because Katrina Alana is giving one lucky reader a $40 shop credit!!! This giveaway is open worldwide and ends April 30th, at midnight, EST.

I've been watching a lot of Game of Thrones lately, and I've always found handwritten letters extremely charming- when seeing this giveaway and the Katrina Alana shop, I'm getting really itchy to send letters to friends I haven't spoken to in a long time! So much nicer than Facebook ;) (that said, a stamp with the FB logo would be kind of ironically cool :P)

Britnee Dockins said...

That bakers twine is absolutely precious. It could really dress up something as simple as a glass candle jar.

Amanda Szwarc said...
