Does anyone have any tips on how to navigate etsy? I always find it really daunting to get pages and pages of hits from a single search…

Thanks

Does anybody have any pictures of their headpieces/ hair pieces they got from Etsy? I am trying to decide what I want to do…

Thanks!

There is a great blog, Etsy Wedding, that posts great finds!  I bought a lot of things from Etsy for our wedding: bridesmaids jewelry, hair flower, cake topper, stationary and STDs, a wedding sign, and some cute guestbook pens!

I bought several cute things on etsy and have been very happy with the quality of the items.

Turned to etsy as well for my wedding invites and hair accessory.  I was totally hesitant at first too because you never know what you might get.  If you can find the right store though, it’s awesome!

1. Hornbill Hill: bought english/chinese invites and the placecards.  We had an Asian garden wedding, which is impossible to find a matching invitation set anywhere!!!!!! Worked with jennifer and got so many compliments.

2. Red Light Studio:  bought cake topper of now-husband and I.  Cynthia worked with me to customize our topper and it turned out perfect.  Couldn’t help but smile everytime i looked at it during our wedding. 😉

2. Little white dresser:  a little pricey but worht every penny!!!!  I got a hairpiece for myself and necklaces for my bridesmaids.  These are things you just can’t find at a retail store,  not even the boutique ones. 

 

hope that helps everyone! if you want to see pics, just message me.

I found the invites to be on the expensive side, not ridiculous but more than DIY.

I DIYed my invites and they turned out to cost as much as a letterpress invite set from Etsy.  Wish I could turn back time!  It would have saved me SOOOOO much stress and time!  I did end up using Letterpress Light for some accent work and for my thank you notes.  LOVE that vendor!

I paid an etsy vendor for the digital files for our invites and did them myself. I, too ended up spending more than if I had them done for me, plus the stress of doing them myself. 

If I could do it over, I wouldn’t take that on. 

Just my 2 cents….

i’ve been looking for invites on etsy and realized one thing that may be of help to other etsy brides:  paper weight makes a difference.  I purchased samples from several stores and was blown away by how good vs how bad some look.  Stores with cheaper invitations use 80lb paper.  It feels really thin and flimsy, and not nice enough for a wedding.   Just throwing in my two cents too before you spend money on samples.
