LOL I think we all are.

I have bought a tonne of stuff off of etsy, too much to list!

I even shopped on Etsy before I was engaged.

 

Great site.

I have bought off etsy before but only soaps. Never really took the time to browse. Now that I have something to shop for... I'm in big trouble.. I think I have decided to grab inspiration and see if I can make what I like myself. I love crafts so I am really looking forward to getting back to civilization so I can get to work!!  :D

I know a few brides who take inspiration from there and make things themselves.  I have done it too, others I just can't replicate the same so pay for it LOL!!!!

 

I think I like the high of waiting for something to come in the mail, because I swear I am done shopping but continue to find things I could purchase :)

I've done lots of looking but I haven't purchased anything. I'm just wondering how is the shipping and wait time on things? since you all seem to be professionals :)

It really depends on how quick the owner of the shop is. They usually post about in their terms. I read their reviews first!!

Depends how quick the seller ships (which is listed in their policies section of their listing), also where you live and where they are shipping from.

 

For USA to Canada I would give anywhere between 1-3 weeks.  Generally I get things in 2 weeks, but have had some come as quick as 1 week, and some longer at 3-3.5 weeks.

 

I have ordered 2 things from the UK and got them both in 3 weeks.

 

I have considered ordering from China, but being about 2.5 months out I am a little nervous too.

 

I also look for any Canadian shops too (you can search for Canadian shops to see - options on left side).  Have ordered a few things from Canadian sellers which of course come the quickest since I am in Canada lol

I love etsy. It's almost like youtube, where you start off with one video, then you look at the suggestions on the side and before you know it you've been sitting there for 2 hours hahha. 

 

I'm so reluctant all the time to buy things off of etsy. I find that usually when I love everything I don't buy anything because I can't decide. I've been looking at some jewellery for the wedding and I can't decide what I like better. Same thing with the hair piece. I have a few favorites but I think I should do a hair trial before deciding what style would look better. 

 

I also use it for inspiration. I'm quite crafty so I can usually find a way to replicate things if they're not too complicated :).

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
