Etsy Wedding {Book Week}: Dark Romance from Jane Eyre

When I say book week, something has to be from that romantic, Victorian era that I lust after. And while most turn to Pride & Prejudice or something of that fantastic sort... I wanted to take a little turn toward the darker, gothic era with this one. Enter Jane Eyre. Such a dynamic, twisted classic that, well, doesn't really scream wedding, but certainly makes a beautiful one if you're willing to take the risk. Think romantic tea party with a dark side. And, luckily, I could count on my trusted Etsy vendors to provide the rest...

Dark charcoals and deep roses with a hint of victorian lace and that green you only picture when you envision this distinct era. I have no problem seeing a bouquet of delicate dried flowers (This can be done with appropriate treatment!), or at least dried petals for the flower girl to throw. Antiqued gold jewelry and lace cuffs complement a stunning and functional cape for those winter weddings! Perhaps a little monogram green cufflinks for the men?

I would forgo fresh flowers for dried petals and brass and golden vessels of all sorts. Long tables strung with these mismatched containers and non-traditional florals atop dark hued runners would be oh so perfect for the mood that the attire has already set. Purchase a handmade leather journal for your guest book and provide primrose-infused soap for favors.
