Etsy is a treasure chest of great ways to add some unique, personalized and/or money saving options into your wedding or event. Several of the vendors we recommend and use for paper products, calligraphy, favors etc use Etsy almost solely for their marketing and product info, because it’s blossomed into such a useful source of DIY, crafty or otherwise rare goodies!
So this year, to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we’ve decided to share our favorites from the Etsy world for Valentine’s Day, and add our suggestions for how you can incorporate these into your wedding or party even if you’re not in the market for Valentine’s decor! Check these out and THEN SHARE YOUR IDEAS! We love to hear your suggestions so go to our Pinterest boardto comment or share your own boards with us!
Not only a very adorable Valentine’s day gift idea, goodie bag, or decor for a party, but a fantastic wedding favor idea as well! Cheaper than the ever-famous personalized M&Ms, you can create these little stickers in your wedding colors, create custom messages if you’d like and style after your wedding decor to create bags of unique yummy chocolates!
Menus make any wedding or event fancier – let your guests know what to expect and add another dimension of decor to the table. You can go extremely custom or very simple and not spend a whole lot. There are plenty of great vendors who can create adorable menus – ask us who our favorites are!
And now, to step out of our “coordinator” role, two of our favorite gift ideas this year! (More on Pinterest!) Check out this custom engraved wood that I think would be perfect for a cutting board! For that woman that loves to cook and/or loves vintage items, this is great. Let’s put the wedding designer hat back on to say that this is a fabulous touch for a vintage chic or naturally-designed wedding – it would go great on a guestbook table, escort card table, as an entrance sign to the ceremony or frankly wherever!
I know it’s been done and kind of cheesy, but when you have a note hand-calligraphied, everything you say just sounds sweeter and more romantic! I couldn’t resist but share this from Etsy. We have vendors that will beautifully hand-write anything you want – a love note for Valentine’s Day or little signs for your wedding! Even in today’s digital age, you can’t beat a lovely hand-written piece of art.
