Eight of our current favorite items on Etsy—all from Columbus vendors.
Etsy is a go-to resource for many couples planning their weddings. But did you know that you can shop handmade and local? Check out our top Etsy picks for this month, all from shop owners based right here in Columbus.
Looking for the perfect, sentimental-yet-practical gift for your bridesmaids? Look no further than these custom, vintage map wine stoppers. DaisyMaeDesignsShop lets you choose the city to depict in the domed glass stopper top (say that 10 times fast). At $32, they’re a quality gift for your gals.
Soft grays go well with just about every color scheme, making this cake topper a versatile option. Shop carrieklein does it again with a stunning handmade paper floral arrangement; this one is anchored in a plaster base for stability. It costs $58 and comes in ivory, gray and black, though it’s made to order so you can request other colors.
Speaking of flowers, we are absolutely obsessed with the floral design on these marsala floral wedding invitations from unicaforma. You can order the digital file for just $20 to print at home, or you can visit the shop’s main website for custom-printed options. But seriously, the lining on that envelope? Swoon!
A stunning invite deserves equally stunning calligraphy, which is where swiftbeautifulfeet comes in. They use a brush pen to address your outer envelopes (including a return address) in any color you like with a beautiful, modern calligraphy. At just $2 per envelope, the price is a steal. And take it from us—this is one project you definitely don’t want to DIY.
If you’re jumping on the industrial-eco-chic trend (and frankly, who isn’t these days?), a perfect guest favor would include these plant markers from SimplySpainDesigns, popped into mini pot of succulents or herbs. The hand-stamped plant names can be customized, and you can choose from brass, aluminum or copper (pictured) metals. They start at $4.90 each, but the price-per-item goes down dramatically with quantity, making bulk orders more effective.
We usually try to avoid doubling up on shops in our Etsy Eight posts, but this minimalist necklace, also from SimplySpainDesigns, is too cute to pass up. Whether you pick it up as a simple accessory for your bridesmaids or to wear yourself at a pre-wedding party (or heck, the big day itself!), this necklace is simply perfect. And at $17, it’s a steal!
Need some earrings to go with that necklace? SterlingGurlDesigns has you covered. They’re made with round Swarovski pearls and button freshwater pearls, with gold wire (though they can be made with silver, too). They’re $13.95 each and too pretty to pass up.
Last up today are these ornate oval frames. You can order them in gold, white, pink or a custom color, and we think they’d make a perfect accent to a photo booth, as dĶcor for an eclectic-themed reception and even as an addition to your gallery wall at home post-wedding. EsTeRaP sells them for $19.99 each.
That's it for this edition of the Etsy Eight. Check back next month for more from our favorite Columbus shops!
