Everything Wedding on Etsy

May 31, 2012

After weeks of planning, it was my sister’s baby shower last weekend and it was something of a triumph, even if I do say so myself :-)  Of course I can take very little credit for it, really all I did was pull the pieces together, the rest was achieved through the online marketplace marvel that is Etsy!

For anyone unfamiliar with the site, Etsy holds the title of the world’s largest handmade and vintage marketplace - with a community of 15million members, across more than 150 countries. And last month saw the launch of an exciting new feature a ‘category’ dedicated entirely to Weddings.

Etsy Weddings

The inspirational Etsy Weddings is designed to help couples create a uniquely personal day with plenty of original, handmade elements.With it’s pages overflowing with one off pieces of jewellery, exquisite millinery, stylish paper goods and even Wedding Dresses, Etsy offers a truly unique (not to mention quite addictive) shopping experience – a one stop shop for all your wedding needs!

A top tip is to use the ‘Shop Local’ feature on the left-hand side of the homepage. This allows you to filter your search, thereby not only supporting your local Etsy sellers, but also avoiding the potential customs charges that go with ordering from abroad!

Here are a handful of my personal picks from Etsy Weddings, some that have already been featured on CVB and some to keep an eye out for….

I so wish I had found this site when I was planning our wedding back in 2010 – it would have saved so much fruitless searching, not to mention pennies. Have you found anything on Etsy for your wedding?? I would love to see the comments section full with seller recommendations! I am going to start it off with the lovely lady who designed all my sister’s baby shower stationery suite.
