Each Wednesday, the ladies of Milestones (aka Britta and myself) share our favorite tidbits in the wedding world. It is part wedding fashion, part do-it-yourself and part wedding randomness.
Just in case I haven’t mentioned it yet, I’m an Etsy freak. Like, a LOT of my online time is spent there, exploring fun new shops and admiring amazing handmade items. I’m really into handmade these days. I’m even teaching myself how to make a few things. I just love the personality that shines through a handmade project. I love the idea that no one else has the exact same thing that I do. I love the personalization of hunting down unique things I know my friends and family will enjoy receiving as gifts. I get a little too excited imagining people thinking “That’s so Sarah. I wonder where she got that?”
So today, I’m taking you Etsy shopping for wedding invitations. I found so many amazing and gorgeous things, I had to break this post into two… so you’ll be getting more Etsy goodness in an upcoming Wedding Wednesday, and next time we’ll go in a slightly different direction.
First up, my favorite find. A simple, elegant hand-written invitation from Ruff House Art. I’m just so in love with this! And you can customize your own colors, too.
And then we have Julia, who seems to get around over at Paper Heart Company. (I am wondering, are Andrew Bauer and Mark Bauer brothers? Scandal on Etsy!) Anyhow, Julia has great style, even if her romantic life may be in shambles. It was tough to pick my three favorites.
Next up are the invitations that mimic boarding passes or passports. Such fun for a destination wedding – or not. Maybe you’re not going anywhere but chances are some (or possibly many) of your guests will be traveling to attend your wedding. The Stylish Scribe has a ton of cool travel-themed wedding stationery.
And if you are having lots of long-distance guests, these gorgeous invites from Trendy Treasures Design Company are a great way to include wedding, travel, lodging and area attraction information all in one great looking guide packet.
If you’re looking to print your invitations yourself, The Parchment Place has tons of cute and just plain fun customized templates that you can order and download. Once again, I had a hard time picking my three faves. Don’t you just adore that mix tape invitation? Their designs are so diverse. Click on over and have a look for yourself.
Long live Etsy!
