Like most others I am obsessed with Etsy. I find myself trawling the endless pages of gorgeous treasures and handmade items not only for wedding inspiration but for gifts all year round. There is so much on offer it can be a little overwhelming so I wanted to share with you my favourite items and stores.

1.Bridesmaid jewellery. I really like the idea of gifting your bridesmaids with something special on the big day. After the months and sometimes years of planning that they have gone through with you, the epic hen do, the tears, the tantrums and everything in between, a gorgeous piece of jewellery to keep seems perfect. This can double up as an accessory for on the big day or for something they can wear again and again.

Below are some of my favourite items from various Etsy stores;

Jewellery

Initial necklaces from the aptly named store- Initial Necklaces
These guys have lots of different variations to choose from as you might not want the same for each bridesmaid. I love the bar style on thin chains that you can either engrave the name or date on to.

The Personal Wedding Co – are a fab store that personalise lots of items, but what I really love are the thank you gifts of earrings that come in their own cotton bag with a personalised name on the front, in any font and colour you desire.

For The Maids – is another great store that offers so much variety on jewellery that comes in a bespoke package and cute quote of your choice. You can buy earrings and necklaces in a set or individual items one of my favourites is the Gold Rounded Charm Necklace it’s simple and personalised and I would definitely wear this again.

2.Lizi Loves wedding stationary
Lizi Loves is one of my favourite Etsy stores they offer everything from wedding invites, cake toppers and personalised straws. These Shabby Chic items are gorgeous and girly with the opportunity to add your own twist on to any of the items Lizi Loves is versatile and great quality. A few of my favourite items are pictured below.

3.Pop up confetti pops
These confetti push pops are fun alternative to the original types of confetti you can purchase on the high street or what you are used to. I think these push pops will look great laid out at the wedding venue as an original handmade item for your guests to remember. Priced at £5.76 per unit they are on the pricey side…However you can keep them and refill them over and over think Birthdays and New Years Eve.

4.Giant Balloons
Balloons for a wedding might not be to everyone’s taste but as an extra accessory I think they can be fun and offer some great photo ops! You could have two of the balloons at the entrance of your venue, as a feature at your cake / sweet station or use them as a prop for your wedding pictures. We’re not talking about a bag of 20 balloons you blow up while trying not to pass out and turn purple…

PomPomstudioUK have a great variety of balloons and the option to personalise them with an eclectic mix of tassel colours. This is a great store for lots of fun accessories.
RevelryPartyCompany sell their giant balloons in packs of 3 in your chosen colours at a really reasonable price of £13.55

5.Wedding Lingerie
Etsy might not be your first port of call when looking for your lingerie but there are so many stores selling gorgeous handmade items that you would be crazy not to look and find something the high street isn’t offering. From lace lingerie sets to silk robes as seen here….

Alingerie– are an amazing store that offer gorgeous lace lingerie, nightgowns and robes. Sexy and feminine you won’t find these pieces on the high street made with French lace and tulle just so so pretty.

BrightonLace – are another store that make beautiful handmade lingerie I personally like the Bralette and Matching French Knickers.
