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.
First up is this custom foil luggage tag from aLITTLEsmallTALK. It’d make a great save-the-date or place card for a destination or tropical-themed wedding—the listing even bills it as having save-the-date potential—and because it’s custom, you can make sure it fits whatever purpose you intend for it. The $5.75 price tag is for a sample piece; actual pricing is based on order details.
It’s been a minute since Columbus Weddings favorite carrieklein made an appearance on Etsy Eight, so we dove into her listings for some inspiration. We’re feeling fall with these paper poppy lapel pins, which would make perfect boutonnieres for any fall event. The set of five is only $15; a steal for Carrie’s handcrafted paper goods!
For the person who doesn’t want to follow status quo, we recommend this lovely, minimalist wedding band from AnneHolman. Available in yellow, rose or palladium white gold, pricing starts at $575 and for 10k yellow gold and ranges up to $975 for 18k rose gold.
Wondering what to get your bridesmaids to thank them for their service—ahem—their help? Why not gift them these satiny-soft custom makeup bags from MagnificentMotifs? You can choose from 10 fonts or three monograms for the customized name printed on the front in solid or glitter vinyl foil, available in 17 options. And at just $16.99, you can get one for every bridesmaid, no matter how big your wedding party is.
If you’re looking for something a little more elegant for your ladies, we love this wire state outline necklace. RedGiraffeDesigns hits it out the park again with this delicate piece, which is available in sterling silver, gold fill, antique brass, silver-plated and gold-plated options priced at $30 to $40. You can get any state, but we think the Ohio one is cute enough to be worn by all.
It’s a dilemma almost as old as the tradition of ring bearers: Your nephew/cousin/godson/child is too young to be trusted with the rings, but you still want him involved in your big day. Instead of giving him the bling, hand him this cute “here comes the bride” sign from TheRitzyRose. It’s only $24, and you can choose the colors of ink, paper and ribbon used. Bonus: It’s practically toddler-proof.
We swooned over InkAndVeil last month, and we’re not ashamed to admit we’re doing it again. This month it’s a menu card that’s caught our eye, and get this: It’s editable. Yep, for just $6.99 you can get a beautifully designed card that you can tweak at the last minute to accommodate an indecisive palette.
When the “I do’s” are done, you and your new spouse will need a place to put your rings when you’re washing dishes, in the shower or cleaning the house. This dual-compartment ring dish is a great solution. LilysCreationLab lets you choose from 30 solid colors, three metallic, two matte shades and six glitter ones for the words, which are available as “hubby/wifey,” “his/hers,” “Mr./Mrs.,” “Mr./Mr.” and “Mrs./Mrs.” The best part? It’s only $8.99.
That's it for this edition of the Etsy Eight. Check back next month for more from our favorite Columbus shops!
