If you been an admirer of The Budget Savvy Bride for even a short amount of time, you know how much I love Etsy. This marketplace of wonder, art, and creativity has added unique, one-of-a-kind details to thousands of wedding that just wasn't possible before the internet.
Not to mention, being an entrepreneur myself, I love that when you purchase an item from Etsy, you are supporting the “little people.” That may be a single mom making candles while her kiddos sleep or a starving artist trying to chip away a place for themselves in a world of big corporations and generic art. Even better, you can find exactly what you want, generally at very competitive prices.
That's why we started posting monthly Etsy round-ups here at the BSB. We wanted to show you the possibilities that Etsy can add to your big day, no matter what your theme, style, or budget. And now that we are nearing the end of the year, what better time to repost our top 12 Etsy round-ups? So, without further adieu, here's the best of the best from Etsy…..
Organization is key when planning your wedding. Even if your big day is going to be relatively laid back, some things you just want to go right. With this round-up, we have a variety of items available for purchase on Etsy to help keep your ducks in a row before, during, and even after your wedding. Quack!
We talk about and feature a lot of gift options for your bridesmaids, family members, and even your wedding officiant here at The Budget Savvy Bride. But what about your future spouse? We thought it was high time we round up some special gifts for your partner on your wedding day or any special occasion.
Regardless of whether your wedding is big or small, some type of signage is usually necessary to help your day go as smoothly as possible. Driving/parking directions, ceremony instructions, seating charts, and gift table labels are all examples of signs you may be considering for your big day. Here are 12 of our favorites!
While not all of us are lucky enough to have our biological mom in our lives, most of us have a mother figure of some sort there to support and guide us. Whether that's grandma, auntie, a beloved childhood nanny, or just an amazing gal who stepped up when you needed her, it's important to show our love and appreciation for these amazing ladies in our lives. This Etsy round-up has some great ideas for that special gal.
Whether your flower girl will be a toddler riding in a wagon, a kindergartner dropping petals, or a preteen accompanying the bridesmaids down the aisle, you will want to show your appreciation for her participation in your wedding. For this post, we have rounded up some of the most unique and thoughtful flower girl gifts and accessories that Etsy has to offer.
There are a myriad of ways to incorporate custom wedding art into your wedding. Use your custom logo on drinkware, invitations, or as envelope stamps. Bride sketches make beautiful gifts for your groom or the father/mother-of-the-bride. And a couples portrait would look awesome on your thank you cards or as reception decor. You could even just get custom artwork created to hang in your home after your big day. Here's some of our favorites!
Customize your wedding and save big bucks with printable wedding signs and decor pieces from Etsy. You'll find wedding programs, signs, instructions sheets, day-of schedules, and much more by amazing artists and designers who are ready and waiting to make your big day special.
Regardless of budget, every bride wants to look beautiful in their wedding gown. While there are literally hundreds of stores to purchase your dress – many of which we have featured here at BSB – one truly unique place to consider is Etsy. Check out these 10 amazing designers.
Etsy, the treasure trove of handmade gifts, goods, and art, has you covered when it comes to greenery themed wedding invitations. And while I typically suggest purchasing the digital proof and printing your invite yourself, many of the artists and designers on Etsy can send you the final product. Without further adieu, here are my top ten picks for greenery invitations.
I know it can't just be me who thinks that most engaged couples choose pretty generic, unoriginal ring bearer apparel for the special little dude in their ceremony. Sure, any kiddo will look adorable walking down the aisle in practically anything, but if you are wanting to find something truly unique for your ring bearer, I highly recommend giving this Etsy post a look-see.
While most party stores have a large section of wedding decor, it is incredibly generic. And with their use of mostly plastic, it can look cheap. Up until the invention of the wonderful world wide web, you generally had to make do with this stuff, unless you spent big bucks for a wedding coordinator. Now, with sites like Etsy, you can search and buy exactly what you have pictured in your mind for unique ceremony decor.
As you can see by perusing our Real Weddings, there are numerous ways for a bride to wear her hair. Flowers, up-dos, headbands, fascinators, and long, flowing tresses are all wonderful options for your special day. But there is something so romantic and classy about veils and Etsy has some amazing options.
