Etsy Eight: September

Emma Frankart Henterly

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.

Watercolor will always have a place in our hearts, but this suite takes it to the next level with a modern black-and-white palette and Ohio-themed details. We love the state-shaped invite itself, and the square details cards just add to the contemporary vibe.

Who doesn’t love an Insta-worthy #squadgoals snap while you’re getting ready with your girls? Snag these T-shirts—available in a variety of colors and phrases—to achieve that perfect “we woke up like this” aesthetic the morning before your wedding.

Grooms, this one’s for you! Sport some style in your wedding band with this custom “galaxy” wedding band. The resin inlay galaxy design can be made in a variety of colors and is inlaid with tiny celestial bodies made of opal. Bonus: The resin itself is UV-reactive. That’s right, gents; this 8 mm comfort-fit titanium ring glows in the dark.

We often share faux-floral arrangements for the bride and flower girl, but here’s a little something for the guys, too. This budget-friendly boutonniere is a perfect keepsake, and its primary/secondary colors are customizable to match your wedding palette. White roses are a classic for a reason, and they go with a variety of bouquet styles. It’s a no-brainer!

Second-guessing your “minimalist” wedding cake theme? Pop these sugar roses on top and on the tiers to instantly jazz up the presentation. They’re available in three sizes and five main colors, or request a custom color all your own. They also make great cupcake toppers!

You spent hours coming up with the perfect wedding hashtag, so make sure your guests know to use it. A custom wooden sign with lovely handwritten script will do the trick. This one measures 9 inches by 12 inches and features kona stain and white vinyl letters.

Need a spot to display your seating chart or program alternative? We like this rustic tabletop easel, which is available in a variety of stain shades. It measures about 34 inches tall by about 24 inches wide and is sturdy enough to withstand some wind during your outdoor ceremony or reception. Great news for you procrastinators out there: The seller has options for rush and premium processing times.

Finally, after all is said and done, you might want a cute little keepsake from the big day. Something you can wear that will look great while providing fond memories of the happiest day of your life. Here it is—a custom necklace made from a 2-inch swatch of your gown! The sterling silver version is expected to be restocked in a few weeks; until then, there’s always the antique bronze finish. Bonus: You can also order a matching bracelet!
