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. In honor of Pride month, we’re using our June roundup to highlight items made specifically for same-sex couples … though many hetero couples could find something to love here, too!
Providing a practical option for wedding favors, these stamped soaps can be made to fit any wedding, with options reading “me & you,” “Mrs. & Mrs.,” and “Mr. & Mr.” They can be customized with your choice of scent and soap and text colors, too.
Set of 20 Stamped Soaps, $50 for 20 via SkyRainSoap
This potential “something new” is technically a necklace, but we like the idea of using it as a bouquet charm. Another fun option: gifting it to an LGBTQ+ bridesmaid! (The shop has a ton of other cute designs, so you won’t have to worry about straight ’maids feeling leftout.)
Equality Heart Necklace, $22.50 via GirlBurkeStudios
Upgrade your cupcakes by topping them with these whimsical rainbow fondant hearts. At 2.5 inches in diameter, they could serve as additional décor for a more traditional cake as well, depending on its design. These cake toppers come in sets of two, six or twelve.
Rainbow Heart Fondant Cupcake Toppers, starting at $14 via Sweetavations
Use this mixed media print as a reception décor piece, or give it as a gift to the newlyweds in your life. The piece features an androgynous couple gazing up at a starry, rainbow sky and is titled “One Love.”
LGBT Art—One Love, starting at $18 via Jenndalyn
Another print that could serve as either décor or a gift, this customizable piece comes already framed. Add the wedding date and your names for a personalized reminder of the big day. The shop has a whole section of LGBTQ+ prints, so it’s easy to find something for a pair of ladies or a nonbinary couple, too.
We Tied the Know Framed Print, $40 via DexMex
Handmade from your choice of birch or acrylic, this classic yet modern cake topper is perfect for any same-sex wedding with any color scheme. Choose from “Mrs. and Mrs.” or “Mr. and Mr.,” for the wording and natural birch, metallic gold, white or glitter gold or silver for the finish.

Why take your engagement announcement seriously? Perfect for both your announcement and subsequent engagement photos, this punny sign can be customized with multiple lettering and ribbon color options.
