Etsy Wedding Wednesday – 8.25.10
This week’s installment of Etsy Wedding Wednesday features a new type of lacy neckline, bouquets that are cute as a button, wedding stationery with architectural interest, and modern ketubah that will have you saying ‘hava nagila’!
“I love all things that are beautiful and fabulous,” states Etsy seller LiveInStyle in her shop bio. Luckily for brides, she’s created some beautiful and fabulous lace necklaces that would make a gorgeous accent to a wedding dress.
These necklaces manage to walk the line between delicate and bold. In addition to these feminine statement pieces, LiveInStyle also offers handmade hair accessories and other jewelry made of traditional metals.
Etsy seller PointDeVue will create an architectural sketch of your reception venue, church, the place you met, your first home together – you name it! These intricate sketches are perfect for framing as a memento of your wedding day or including on your wedding stationery, programs or place cards.
Simply send an image of your venue to the artist, and she will create a .jpg, .tiff or .png 300 dpi resolution file for you to send to your stationer or print yourself. Or, you can request the original artwork as an elegant keepsake.
Australian Etsy seller letters4lilly creates custom bouquets and boutonnieres made of thousands of buttons. These colorful clusters of buttons are a fun alternative to flowers – they’ll last a lifetime, and no wilting!
Each bouquet is a handmade custom order, and the letters4lilly waiting list is currently up to 40 weeks, so order yours today!

For those unfamiliar, a ketubah is a Jewish ceremonial document. It is an integral part of a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, and it outlines the rights and responsibilities of the couple as a sort of prenuptial agreement. During the wedding ceremony, two witnesses watch the couple sign their ketubah, and the document is often displayed in a couple’s home after the wedding day.
Ketubah have evolved over the years, and Etsy seller jenniferraichman creates simple, streamlined documents to suit modern couples. Ms. Raichman uses archival cotton-rag art paper and high-quality archival inks to print text in English, Hebrew, or a combination of both.
Ms. Raichman works with couples from all different backgrounds, including secular, reform, conservative and orthodox Jewish, interfaith, and more. Her designs range from subtle florals to bold filigree, and the Etsy shop also offers custom wedding stationery, bar/bat mitzvah invitations, moving announcements and calendars.
