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?

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
