Etsy finds: Wedding gowns & accessories

Despite the hassles that can arise (return shipping, for example), I much prefer online shopping to "conventional" shopping. Walking around a mall for hours trying to find what I want is not appealing, and neither is dealing with over crowding on weekends and during holidays.

When I was first engaged, I couldn't wait to go dress shopping. However, I was never enamoured by the idea of my mom, mother-in-law, maid of honor, etc., etc. being by my side with tears in their eyes as I found "the one." My sister (and maid of honor) accompanied me, and I found a dress I loved on the first attempt. So, would I shop online for a wedding dress? If I had ample time before my wedding, I certainly would.

Here are some gorgeous gowns and accessories, all handmade by Etsy vendors:

The flower sash is definitely a favourite of mine; it would be a great addition to a reception dress
