Etsy Wedding Wednesday 9.8.10
This week’s Etsy Wedding Wednesday is a diverse one, with handmade flowers that look like the real deal, some special paper goods to adorn your reception’s Wish Tree, and a custom gift that will have your groomsmen toasting to your generosity.
Can you believe that the bouquet picture pictured above is made of paper? Etsy seller onehappygirl creates custom bouquets, boutonniere, hair clips and other accessories from paper, felt and other homespun materials with charming results.
These bouquets and boutonnieres are a fantastic fresh flower alternative, and the hair clips, shoe clips and other accessories on offer at onehappygirl could be worn long after your wedding day.
Have you heard of a wedding wish tree? A small real or faux tree or cluster of branches is displayed at your wedding reception. With pens and paper provided, each guest writes down his or her wish for the couple’s future and hangs it on the tree. It’s a sweet idea, and it can be a fun activity for your friends and family, as well as a beautiful decorative item.
If you choose to have a wish tree, you can’t have just any old scrap of paper hanging from your branches. Luckily, we found some Etsy papergoods to fit the bill:
UK-based Etsy seller BagofTags has a range of vintage-inspired designs at affordable prices. These tags are pretty enough that the couple can keep them in an album and read their families’ kind messages for years to come.
Etsy seller GreenAcresCottage points out that some couples are using their wish tree as a kind of unstructured guest book. This Etsy shop has dozens of tag designs in shabby chic and French-inspired patterns, which can be used for adorning wedding gifts (or any other special occasion gifts) as well as for wishing trees.
Finally, a slightly more groomsmen-friendly find:
These personalized bottle openers would be a hit with any amateur barkeep. Maybe you could present them to your groomsmen or any other beer-loving relatives after a bachelor’s day out at a microbrewery? Etsy seller InnovationWorkshop sells them individually or in groups ranging from 2-10. Each can be personalized with two lines of text, such as the couple’s names and wedding date, ‘Steve’s Bar’ or simply, ‘Cheers!’
Each opener is crafted from hardwood, oil-tanned leather and solid steel, and includes screws to attach it to a wall or bar fixture. Crack open a bottle of your favorite suds and toast to your wedding!
