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.

Do you march to the beat of your own drum? Then this stunning vintage emerald engagement ring might be right up your alley. It’s 18k gold with a 0.63-carat, oval-cut emerald taking center stage; 16 diamonds (0.16tcw) complete the setting. ScotchStreetVintage is a reputable seller, and the $1,500 price tag is more than fair for a beauty like this.

Brides-to be, the question has been popped to you … now it’s time for you to pop one yourself. If you want to be a little extra, this custom bridesmaid proposal set from aLITTLEsmallTALK is a definite must. At $15 each, they definitely aren’t for the budget-minded bride, but they’re so cute that we think it’s totally justifiable.

OK, now for the real deal: the actual wedding invitations. We’ve been watercolor-obsessed lately, so it’s no wonder why this blush floral set from factorymade caught our eye. Pricing starts at $75 for 25 sets of invite, reply card and matching envelopes for each, or you can buy the digital file and print yourself for $60.

Love is sweet, ain’t it? Well, your shower favors should be just as sweet, we think. Enter these luxe gold and pink rock candy sticks from SparklingSweetsShop. You get 12 for $24, so there will be plenty to go around for your shower guests.

If you’re looking for the perfect bejeweled hairpiece to complete your ensemble, look no further than these hair pieces from RoseyroseStudio. The light gold hue is accented with rhinestones and pearls and would work with just about any ensemble. You can get the pin for $19, the comb for $29 or both for $45.

Your pint-sized attendants will look charming with this matching set: a basket for the flower girl and a pillow for the ring bearer. astylishdesign lets you customize the ribbon and flower for this set, which is $73 ($68 if you don’t want the rhinestones).

We’re all about wedding signage that doubles as home décor, and this shiplap sign from LovelyGrainStudio fits the bill perfectly. It’s available in a variety of sizes, starting at $55 for a 12-by-12-inch version and going up to $180 for a 36-by-36-inch one. (Not a fan of the black text? You can get it in light or dark gray instead.)

What’s fall without the Buckeyes? Send your guests home with a little piece of OSU thanks to these state-shaped coasters from BEARDEDWOODCRAFT. They will run you $30 for a set of four, so if that’s too expensive, might we suggest them as groomsmen gifts?

That's it for this edition of the Etsy Eight. Check back next month for more from our favorite Columbus shops!
