Etsy Wedding Wednesday – 8.4.10
It’s time for another installment of Etsy Wedding Wednesdays here at Zankyou! Last week we picked a few goodies for groomsmen. This week, we’ve got some gifts for your bridesmaids, as well as some creative ways to light up your reception venue and ‘leave your mark’ on your wedding day.
These charming bridesmaid gift sets from Etsy seller MadisonCraft are a pretty, practical, and affordable find. Your bridesmaids could all wear their pendants on your wedding day (and beyond), plus they’ll have the handy pocket mirror to keep in a handbag as a reminder of the fun they had.
Each mirror comes in a velour pouch, and the whole set arrives in a gift box tied with a red ribbon. The sets come in hundreds of colors and designs, and if you just want the mirrors for your gals, you can buy three ($5 each) and get the fourth free!
Here’s another personalizable gift for your ‘maids. We love the simple, casual style of these hand-stamped necklace charms from Etsy seller sayanythingjewelry (helmed by Ms. Stephanie Wilde). Not only can you make it special with each bridesmaid’s initial, but you can add a pearl in your wedding color or a little gem colored to match each gal’s birthstone.
Everyone’s fingerprints are unique, and Nashville-based Etsy seller loridanelle uses her unique skills to precisely capture those prints in a marvelous keepsake art piece. With stunning detail, loridanelle carves out each and every ridge, nook and curve by hand. This would make a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift for a newlywed couple.
Here are the design options available for couples:
The artist sends instructions on how to take a clear fingerprint, and as soon as she’s received them, gets to work creating a completely unique heirloom. (So don’t worry, you don’t have to find a cop to take the couples’ fingerprints for you.)
These votive candle wraps from Etsy seller Illumienate are an elegant way to combine table numbers or personalized wedding favors with the romantic glow of candlelight. Each wrap is professionally printed in the ink color of your choice onto on translucent white or ivory vellum. They are attached to the candle holder with commercial-grade double-sided tape that will hold up to the candle’s heat. A ribbon is attached at the bottom and to match your decor. The candles themselves are not included, but a selection of candles is also available at this Etsy shop.
