You’ve seen the stylish wedding mags, oogled the images of lavish celebrity weddings and spent hours trying to copy those cute wedding decorations on Pinterest, but it’s all too expensive, too outlandish or just too fiddlesome to copy. Time’s ticking on and your wedding budget’s crumbling. You want your wedding to be unique and personal, not off the shelf or clichéd. So thank goodness for Etsy – the brilliant online outlet that celebrates creativity and entrepreneurship and shines the light on independent crafters and designers. It’s always our first port of call when we want something no-one else has got, and we think it’s one of the best ways to keep in budget and curate your wedding just the way you want it.
To help, we’ll regularly be highlighting some of our favourite Etsy buys and profiling some of the sellers, asking them everything from what makes their designs unique to what advice they’d give to a couple getting married.
