With so many of our lovely brides adding stunning handmade details to their celebrations, we thought we’d catch up with Etsy for their top trend picks and tips for shopping Etsy for your wedding!
What role can Etsy play in your wedding planning?
“Etsy can act as your wedding registry, a way to add personal touches to your day or your one-stop shop for your entire event, from the rings to the dress, bridal party outfits, wedding decor and gifts. Brides and grooms can shop according to their values as well, whether that be local or eco-friendly, handmade or vintage.”
What are some of the most popular products purchased on Etsy?
“Table settings, including decorations and bonbonnieres, as well as custom jewellery. Wedding rings are very popular because it’s the one place you can find unique, bespoke and beautifully crafted handmade rings – anything from vintage art deco to minimalist modern can be found.”
What is one of the biggest trends at the moment?
“Our Editor’s Picks are curated to highlight trends and themes for the current season. Meaningful gifts are on the rise, with home grown succulents, personalised printables, custom candles and edible treats all popular.”
“Things like custom cufflinks, personalised socks, monogrammed makeup cases and even purses and jewellery with names on them are also great gifts for your bridal party.”
What is the best way to personalise your wedding with Etsy?
“Create a mood board of everything you love and want your wedding to be, then shop around on Etsy to find a maker for those items. Often, you can work directly with the maker to tweak a design, add a special touch or even create something entirely new to reflect the theme of their wedding.”
What wedding styles are you loving?
“On Etsy you can shop for any theme or niche, but I love rustic wooden signage and beautiful bohemian invitations – not to mention the stunning boho wedding gowns you can find.”
“Another favourite trend of mine is metallics! You can find so many stunning headpieces, statement jewellery and even sparkly gowns to match your glittering wedding backdrop.”
What are your top tips for planning an Etsy wedding?
1. Put your personality into your wedding to keep it fun and unique to you.
2. Use Pinterest to create a virtual moodboard – it’s a great reference for current trends, celeb weddings and where to find products on Etsy.
3. Due to the artisanal nature of our makers, often the items are made to order, so always keep an eye on production time and delivery deadlines.
4. Remember if you can’t find the perfect item, you will always be able to connect with a seller who can make it for you!
