Top 5 Etsy Picks

Whatever your theme or budget is a great place to spend hours searching for the perfect detail for your big day.  As a been there done that bride here are a few of my favorite vendors.  They were all super easy to work with, professional, proficient  and worth every penny.

::Save The Date Cards and Invitations:: by By Invitation Only
My Save the Date cards were something I struggled with make a decision on.  Why? Well because this is the first thing your guest would ever see of your wedding and the wrong save the date can send the wrong message.  I ordered from By Invitation Only and could not be happier with the quality of the product.  I loved my Save the Date cards and could not be happier with my order.

::Cute Cake Topper:: by AnnaCrafts
I toyed with the idea of just ordering a simple monogram for our cake topper but simple sometimes doesn’t cut it.  I searched Etsy for something a little whimsical and I feel in love everything Anna Crafts creates.  Her attention to detail is amazing and my topper could not have turned out better.  Below is the actual topper I ordered. It was designed to resemble my dress, she included my Valentino shoes and my grooms Chuch Taylors, and my long veil.  The topper was shipped from Korea in record speed – Next day and only $25 for shipping.

::Sign In Tree::
by Bleudetoi
You wedding is a work of art and your guest book should not be over looked.  I ordered the medium twisted oak tree and can not wait to hang it up. Bleudetoi is an awesome company and everyone commented on how cool they thought the tree was. Here’s a tip.  Have your bridesmaids add their fingerprints and signatures first before you place it out.  That way no one gets confused.

::Unique and Edible Escort and Seating Ideas:: by Vintage Confections
I spared no detail when it came to my wedding and I knew my escort cards were no exception. Sure the normal tent cards could have worked great but how could you pass up pretty pink lollipops that come in a variety of colors.  I ordered three sets of numbers 1-9 in cotton candy flavor.  These pretty pops not only look good they are delicious.  They are creamy and dreamy and do not taste artificial at all.  If you are plan on ordering you can give one number to each guest or one per couple – which is what I did.  They run under $4 per lollipop.

::Garter:: by Brook Hunsaker Country Couture
My garter was a little bit glamorous, a little bit vintage and a whole lot of fun!  I knew I couldn’t just have a regular garter so when I started searching for my thigh high accessory I went straight to Etsy and found a few I feel in love with.  At under $30 I knew it was meant to be and Brook was super easy to work with and very accommodating considering I order just days before the wedding.  It was really comfortable and came as a set with a garter to toss.  

Happy Planning! xoxo

Save The Date!

After searching everywhere for the perfect save the date, I finally decided on a nautical inspired card that fits my wedding style perfectly. I ordered from By Invitation Only on and I couldn’t be happier.  The Etsy shop owner, Laura was super easy to work with and the quality of the cards and work definitely surpassed my expectations.

Proclaim Your Date in Style

You’ve set the date, picked your venue and now you want to spread the news of the big day. Sending out a save the date card is the perfect way to let guests know when to pencil you in.

Similar to a wedding invitation, save the date cards follow the same etiquette guidelines and allow brides to add a little pizzaz when announcing their day.  But honestly, If I see another postcard or magnet I am going to scream!

Instead of taking the traditional route here are a few examples to help hype your big day!
