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.
Couples traditional exchange gifts on their wedding day, and we can’t think of a more stunning gift for a bride than this 14k white gold and diamond watch. This beautiful vintage piece is classy enough to wear on your wedding day to help you keep everything on schedule.
Le Coultre Watch, $995 via SmallTownVintageShop
Speaking of gifts, these sweet, customizable tag necklaces are perfect for your MOH and/or bridesmaids. Opt for the single-tag option with her initial, or go double-tag and put both your initials on it for a BFF necklace that’s anything but cheesy. Available in sterling silver, gold filled or rose gold filled, with chains ranging from 16 to 20 inches.
Hand Stamped Tag Necklace, $30-$55 via RedGiraffeDesigns
Still searching for your “something old”? Opt for something that’s also functional with this vintage Whiting & Davis Co. clutch, originally from Saks Fifth Avenue (as evidenced by the label inside). A slight patina on the clasp attests to its age—circa 1950, according to the seller—but the sequins are just as sparkly as ever.

For your “something new,” a delicate hair comb tucked into your updo is a perfect choice. Available in gold, silver and rose gold, this delicate comb features metal flowers and petals with faux pearl and rhinestone accents. Wear it solo or stack multiples together for a more dramatic effect!

You’re on your own for your “something borrowed,” but we have your “something blue” covered right here, thanks to these Swarovski pearl and crystal earrings. They’re handmade with sterling silver fill and can be made with fishhook or plated lever backs. The drop pearl at the bottom is also available in an ivory hue.

Live flowers are always great, but if you want a keepsake bouquet that will stay pristine for years to come, a paper version is one option. This white and blush arrangement features paper peonies, gardenias, leaves and berries for texture, all wrapped with burlap and lace.

Finally, something a little whimsical for your reception. Are these paper straws necessary? Not particularly. Are they cute as heck and more eco-friendly than their plastic counterparts? You bet! The rose gold-striped straws are paired with hand-foiled tags, which can be customized with the couple’s name and/or wedding date as well.
