I have a major love affair with Etsy. I like supporting small businesses and people’s passions, which is why it’s the first place I always look for wedding inspo. Hence me dragging my mum into town Saturday for a little nose at the Etsy wedding pop up at West Elm.
With seven months to go, we’re at a pretty good place with our planning which is largely down to the fact that we have a wedding planner, as we’re getting married abroad. It also helps that both Al and I are taking it in our stride and enjoying the process. We have the main parts ticked off and apart from me needing to renew my passport pretty swiftly, I can now immerse myself in the finer details.
This place setting from The Letter Loft even made me and mum crave a tattoo, as my grandparents were known for their huge eucalyptus tree that’s still in the garden to this day.
I was in my element. As was my mum. Between the two of us and a couple of cocktails, we nailed a whole heap of ideas including some pretty awesome decorations for our UK party if we can pull them off. While I don’t want to ruin the element of surprise, we’re thinking balloons and ribbon and lots of them both.
Got any recommendations for crafty sellers I should look up, drop ’em below.
