Share your Etsy Finds!

Recommended Posts

With less than two weeks to go until we depart for our destination wedding, I just wanted to share my favourite Etsy purchases with you all from the following fine artisans:

 

PALOMASNEST created our ceramic ring bowl, my bouquet charm, the mini monogram charm for my FI's bout, and mini charms for our parents' bout and corsages.

WOODANDGLASS created our personalized glass swizzle sticks that will be in our signature drink served at the rehearsal dinner.

Our custom made instant photo guest book was created by THEHANDMADEBOUTIQUE.  I asked that the paper monogram on the front cover be left off to allow me to attach an engraved metal plate.

LILAFRANCES created an amazing "MRS" wire hanger for me.

 

And finally, in lieu of a card for my FI on our wedding day, I had QUOTESANDNOTES create this personalized mini book for me to write in and give.

I felt it was important to acknowledge these amazingly talented folks, especially as I am in the midst of dealing with two other very disappointing Etsy purchases : (

Thanks!!!  I can't wait to show friends and family and incorporate everything into our special week : )

 

I certainly learned a valuable lesson...if what you are after from an etsy seller differs in ANY way from work/samples they showcase on their site...whether it's colour, shape, size, etc., request a mid-point communication/photo share to ensure that you're both on the same page!!!  I realize they're all busy, but it wouldn't take much time on their part to do this...rather than taking the attitude, "if you don't hear from us, assume everything is going well."  Believe me, it would save a whole lot of time, headache and heartache on both ends...

Hi Girls! Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/leahrhood - This girl does custom made orders for weddings, special events, & gifts. Her store has many items - alot geared towards an antique/vintage style. But everything is beautiful, especially the jewelry! I have bought some earrings & necklaces that came so nicely packaged & were exactly as pictured! Highly recommended!!!

I just wanted to share that this morning I discovered tophatter. It is an online auction by etsy sellers. I went on there to try to win a house decor item, which went for way more than I could pay, BUT I did buy 3 definitely underpriced jewelry, all great for the wedding, or bm gifts, or maybe just presents for myself! I got a beach charm bracelet, regularly priced for just under 30, for 12, and earrings also for 12 (regular price 18), and a seaglass necklace for 20 (regular I think was 24.) When I get pictures, I will post them.

Anyway, it is a great way to get some items for different prices. Two of the items I bought also had free shipping to Canada; when their shops normally do not, and the other item had reduced shipping. The sellers often seem to be 'in the room' as well, if you have questions or anything.

Anyway, just wanted to share. Kind of annoyed that I found this... I lack restraint and willpower. Maybe I need a bigger house?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
