I love scrolling through Etsy for inspiration and there are a few shops I’ve come across that I’ve loved and bought bits and pieces from for our wedding in September. There are so many options on there when it comes to personalisation and ideas that I’d never have thought of myself. And if you’re as obsessed with Pinterest as much as I am, you will definitely find all the Pin-worthy signs and decor on there. I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with all you other bride-to be’s – and if you’ve come across any yourself, do let me know in the comments below, you can never have too many Etsy purchases when it comes to wedding planning (my poor budget knows it)!
Despite not usually a huge fan of colour myself, I really wanted some multicoloured confetti for the shots of us coming out of church after the ceremony. I found TheSugarShopCo on a Facebook wedding group after someone had posted a shot of their Mermaid Dandruff confetti. I’ve gone for Unicorn Poop (so fun!) and will be bagging it up to leave on the seats in the chapel for the guests to throw at us after the ceremony.
As I designed all my stationary myself, I kept it cohesive with a ‘logo’ and thought it would be fun to get a stamp made up to stamp the envelopes, place names, confetti envelopes and anything else I can get my hands on to stamp (you could even stamp your napkins to personalise them). Cuts & Scrapes were super helpful and quick with delivery and the stamp is so cute and well-made. Thumbs up.
I spent so long looking for bridesmaid dresses, it became a bit of an obsession. I’m going for the same colour (and a very hard-to find-one at that) for all 5 girls but in different styles. I liked the look of the multiway dresses for one or two of my bridesbabes and found Atom Attire after searching long and hard. Their dresses are much more affordable than the likes of Two Birds and the quality is amazing! I was so pleased when they arrived (it takes a while though as they’re from China so order early) and the price was so reasonable too.
I think I’ve mentioned Amy’s shop before in a previous post. She sells beautiful cards and stationary, perfect for bridesmaid proposals or a card for your Dad or Groom on the morning of the wedding.
We’re pretty much set on the decor for the wedding now but how cool are these script wood signs? You can personalise them too so would really well as signs around the venue, backdrops for photo booths or the top table, and even as a cake topper. I am still on the lookout for a cake topper so might go for one myself.
Etsy have also put together this page – more inspo to further prise my budget away from my hands…
