// Etsy Thursday: Weddings With BLING!//

Every woman needs some bling in her life, especially on her wedding day, which is why you’ll LOVE this Etsy Wedding post filled with BLING! This week I decided to show some local love by featuring my favorite Etsy bling finds from Southern CA vendors. Knowing that we are attracted to shiny, sparkly items (especially diamonds), I am confident that you will be happy with these Etsy Thursday finds. We would love to find out which one is your favorite, so please leave us a comment below!

Were you able to find some bling-inspiration or ideas from this week’s Etsy Thursday post? I personally don’t think you can have to much bling on your special day, after all it is your shining moment! Little accents of bling on your apparel and among your decor will add the perfect element of sparkle, elegance, sophistication, and the “WOW” factor that you may be looking for!
