Hey there, Barn lovers!
Today I'm starting a new monthly series called Darling Details. Each month, I'll show my favorite wedding details from various online shops, which you can then purchase for your own wedding! What better way to start such a series than with Etsy?!
Etsy is a goldmine when it comes to vintage fashion and accessories, antiques, unique pieces for your home, handmade jewelry and adorable wedding details. What I love about Etsy's wedding shops is that they offer one-of-a-kind, customizable pieces that you will treasure long after your wedding day is over. Here are some of my favorites:
Custom Wood Cake Toppers
I can hardly keep it together over the custom cake toppers from IttyBittyWoodShoppe. They are ridiculously cute! And if a tiny version of you and your beloved wasn't already cute enough, they will even make a mini version of your favorite four-legged critter! Other cute options: zombies, a fisherman and his girly girl and a military couple.
Custom Cake Forks
I had these for my wedding, and let me tell you... I had NO idea how excited I could get over a pair of forks. You pick the text on the forks (cute ideas: I do and me too; Mr. and Mrs.; bride and groom; his and hers), the type of fork (cake, dinner or grille), and the font. This shop also carries the most precious coffee spoons and cake servers.
Personalized Wedding Dress Hanger
I know we've all seen these a thousand times on Pinterest, but they are just so. stinkin'. adorable. You can get them with or without your wedding date, with your new last name or simply "bride," and they make perfect gifts for your bridesmaids, mother and new mother-in-law. My personal favorite: a little heart makes these even cuter.
Printable Wedding Invitations
Did you know that you don't have to spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on wedding invitations? Many Etsy sellers offer printable invitations, RSVP cards and directions cards for as low as $20. The seller emails you a file which you then have printed and cut at Staples or your favorite local print shop. This is WAY cheaper than ordering them from a stationery or invitation shop. Plus, Etsy sellers will work with you on colors, texts and the overall design of your invitations. I also like these really simple ones, these floral ones, and the beautiful font on these.
Engraved Monogram Necklaces
Attention All Grooms! Buy your bride an engraved necklace with her new initials. I promise she'll love it. Brides, these also make lovely bridesmaids gifts for all your best gals.
Getting Ready Robes
Not only do silk floral robes make for great getting ready photos, but they are also perfect gifts for your bridesmaids that will actually be used again (unlike embroidered "bridesmaid" button-ups that your girls will most likely never wear out in public). They come in the most beautiful colors, and I especially love these mismatched ones.
Do you plan to purchase anything from Etsy for your wedding? If you're already married, did you buy any of your wedding details from Etsy? I'd love to hear in the comments!
I'll see y'all back here tomorrow. Have a lovely Wednesday!
