As a fellow editor, I can vouch that we are lucky enough to see the latest and greatest in wedding products and suppliers; but regardless of the brand, nothing beats a quirky one-off find, that none of your friends have seen.
We spoke with the Editor of Bride Magazine, Lisa O’Brien about her top 10 wedding Etsy buys (and we won’t blame you if you don’t want to share these finds with your friends!).
I would make everything watercolour if I could, so it should come as no surprise that I’ve included these gorgeous invitations on my list of faves!
Having a rustic wedding? These are a cute addition to your place settings at the bridal table that you can keep forever as a memento of your day.
Finding a veil can be tough but it really helps complete your bridal look. I love this one because it’s simple, chic and lets your gorgeous gown do the talking!
There’s no such thing as too many flowers at a wedding, so why not chuck them on your invitations too?
Sure, you could just ask your BFFs face-to-face, but it’s MUCH more fun to send an invitation in the post. Also, it’s rose gold foil.
When it comes to bridal bouquets, green is the new white, and there’s no better way to incorporate foliage than with these on-trend Aussie natives.
This leaf sash nails that pretty, girlie look without looking too childish (after all, no bride wants to be mistaken for their flower girl!)
Brooches are perhaps one of the most underrated items in the jewellery box, but can add so much to an outfit. This one doubles as your ‘something blue’, too.
The grown-up version of the ‘Best Friends’ necklaces we all had in primary school! Get one for each of your bridesmaids as their wedding gift.
A lot of brides tell us they struggle to find a gift for their groom, but I think a traditional gift like personalised cuff links makes the perfect keepsake.
Etsy.com has partnered with Bride Australia to host a two-day wedding trunk show at Melbourne’s 1000 £ Bend which will feature the work of Etsy sellers from around Australia, with more than 20 sellers on hand to showcase their products and their making process. Tickets are available here.
