I came across a great website that I wanted to share with you all. You may or may not have heard about Etsy, it is a website designed to showcase items that you might want to sell on or if you are a creative bunny you can use this to sell things that you make and ideas that you have for craft items. This spin-off from the main Etsy website is dedicated to all things wedding, and has some great style ideas along with some leading trends in the wedding world. You could loose an afternoon in it! There are some lovely ‘how-to’ sections as well as guidance and planning and some great ‘real weddings’ stories. I really like the style of the website as well and they cover many aspects of wedding planning process.

As with this kind of place there are some great things to get inspired by and there are some which are quite frankly a joke. However, it is worth looking through and seeing if there is anything that could inspire you to get creative. Also, after your wedding, if you are left with lots of wedding things that you won’t need or don’t have anyone to pass it on to then you could consider selling them through this forum.

I think I actually just love this website. I wish I had a whole week to spend everyday looking through it. What creative and business minded people there are out there! Granted, they are mostly selling from America but a lot do ship to the EU so all you have to do is cost that up. If the price is too high and you have some time then why not try to do it yourself? There are tonnes of great ideas that you could do without needing to be an amazing artist. Sometimes the shabby chic, made-at-home-look works really well. I particularly love the letterpress ideas; I think that you can gain a lot of inspiration from what people are doing. My only problem is I love so many of them that I don’t know which on to go for!

Each item leads you on to another little online shop where you can see other things that person has made or is selling. It’s a great way to see what is going on currently in the wedding business, if you are at the beginning of your journey you can start by checking out what different styles there are or if you are drawing closer to your big day then some final touches might be needed.

Did I also mention they have a registry so you can sign up, handpick items you love and then friends and family can buy them for you, what a great way to find unique pieces!
