If you’re anything like me, you want the treats you buy for yourself to make you feel unique and special. Or you like to lend a quirky yet tasteful finishing touch to everything around you. As one of my lovely dance teachers and mentors once said to me, “to decide to like something is to congratulate yourself.” And what better time or place to surround yourself with the things you like and show your individual taste than at your wedding reception?
For brides looking for something outside of a cookie-cutter, mass-produced world, I highly recommend Etsy.com. There’s also a section for weddings where you can find invitations, guest books, one-of-a-kind jewelry for your bridesmaid gifts, candles and wedding cake toppers. Prices are usually pretty manageable, too.
Looking for something even more personal for your wedding? Remember that a bunch of the sellers on Etsy will take custom orders. That’s the beauty of dealing directly! It’s no wonder that this once indie-kept secret is now popping up on more and more bridal blogs than ever.
