Etsy Finds – Wedding Edition
I believe that true style lies in the details. Like the strategic addition of a scarf to your ensemble or the tiny trinkets on a dresser. I have a major crush on all things Jonathan Adler, including the designer extraordinaire himself. My wedding cake topper was from his shop and the cake itself was inspired by his pottery. He once said something along the lines of “classic foundation, playful punctuation.” I love that. This style mantra translates to just about everything…why not weddings? Keep trends far away from your venue, your gown, the invitations…but when it comes to the details – get creative. Sure everyone is staring at the bride, but when it comes to your photos and the long lasting memories, it is those small captured details that make the day uniquely special and truly your own.
There’s no better place to find creative handmade and one of a kind goods than Etsy. If you’re planning a wedding, Etsy should be on your radar! Here are a few shops and finds that will provide all the playful punctuation you need to make your wedding day a photographic success.
Emerson Bindery’s hand bound guest books are a beautiful alternative to those white, puffy, covered-in-pearls versions out there. They make for a great message sharing experience and a good looking display on the guest table.
Twigs & Honey by Myra Callan works with laces, sheers, ribbons, silks, flowers, feathers and more, to create gorgeous bridal accoutrements. Her pieces are ethereal and very of the moment, in a vintage-inspired way.
Family Attic creates french chic, country living-inspired signs that are just perfect for a lovely, quaint fete. Inviting and pretty, they’ll add a dash of whimsy to the decor as well as your photographs.
Talk about playful! These candy-colored Smitten Sticks from Le Papier Studio are a great way to show your guests that you don’t take life or this fancy schmancy wedding business too seriously.
