Etspiration Wednesday: Weddings

June is right around the corner and that means Weddings galore on Etsy. It's amazing how whole businesses revolve around the trimmings and trappings of weddings. We've got a number of great customers who purchase stencils from us for wedding related decor and we're going to highlight them individually in our next couple Feature Fridays. For now, here is a quick spin around Etsy of wedding related items that you won't have any problem saying, "I Do!" to.

1A: Mr and Mrs Burlap Banner Image Courtesy FunkyShique
1B: Bride and Groom Stencils Image Courtesy Maisondestencils
1C: Save the Date Wedding Tote Image Courtesy RachelWalter

My husband and I went to Vegas to get married, so there was no saving of dates! I love the idea of a Save The Date reminder that has function too, so props RachelWalter!

2A: Just Hitched Stencil Image Courtesy Maisondestencils
2B: Ring Bearer Pillow Image Courtesy Freshline
2C: French Journal Guestbook Image Courtesy GreenTrikePress

I just want to note that Diptic cropped the journal in 2C kind of strangely. It's really stunning, in fact all of the papercraft GreenTrikePress does is terrific. Really worth checking out.

3A: Custom Save The Date Postcard Image Courtesy 0NamesLeft
3B: Wedding Ampersand Sign Image Courtesy TheBackPorchShoppe
3C: Mr and Mrs Stencil Image Courtesy Maisondestencils
3D: Fleur De Lis Merci Bags Image Courtesy JennifersCookies

Love the postcard in 3A. Laura and I both do vintage postcard illustrations (hers stencil, mine digital) and I really love the look captured here. The red is perfect!

4A: Vintage Table Number Cards Image Courtesy KindredSpiritCrafts
4B: Playbill Wedding Invitation Image Courtesy HeSawSparks
4C: Guestbook Stencil Image Courtesy Maisondestencils

I really love the playbill invitation in 4B for its typographic selection. I feel that in the past, wedding invitations were just a sea of script fonts. It's such a breath of fresh air to see bolder fonts and antique type set to work on really unique invitations.

5A: Just Hitched Wedding Banner Image Courtesy TheArtofHandmades
5B: Custom Timber Wedding Book Image Courtesy Lorgieandme
5C: Save The Date Magnet Image Courtesy DifferentDesigns10
5D: Love Is Patient Canvas Wedding Tags Image Courtesy TheCaterpillarsDream

The guestbook in 5B is totally amazing. Lorgie+Me make laser engraved wooden books (among other things). They have a baby book too which is just lovely.

As always, thanks to our superb participants for use of their photos. If you haven't already, be sure to leave a comment here for a chance to win a free 12x12 stencil. I'll announce the winner on Friday.

Have a great day!


  1. I got hitched in Vegas too! I'm trying to leave a comment on your Friday the 13th post but seem to be unable to! I'd love to be in the running for the giveaway. I just used my first stencil from you last week and I LOVE it!!! I want them all!
