Saturday was a beautiful Spring day, just perfect for heading into NYC with Jen of Jen Kim Made & attending To Have & To Hold, the first-ever weddings event hosted by Etsy.
Just beyond the white & cream ribbon entrance, the event promised unique items & plentiful inspiration for Brides, Grooms, wedding parties & wedding guests.
& the event delivered! I was instantly enamored with the sweet lace number accented with a blush pink flower belt:
Fresh flower bouquet alternatives like fabric, silk & wood were quite cool but a stunning ranunculus paper bouquet to last forever & ever stole my heart:
Oh, sweet little vignettes were tucked in every nook & cranny, chock full of vintage & handmade items for creating a stylish wedding:
Why hello, sparke & shine tassel garland:
Wow, wow. To Have & To Hold vintage book cut-out!!!: look closely:
It wasn't all about the Bride & Grooms! As a pet lover, I thought the ring pillows outfitted for a furry bridal party members were fabulous:
Bravo to Etsy & its artists for supporting same sex marriages:
Once. You're only a Bride & Groom once jetting off on your honeymoon so why not travel Bride & Groom-style:
They had me at good-bye with the too-cool-for-school pink vintage typewriter:
Last but certainly not least is a great quote about marriage:
This post shows only a snippet of the items available at the event & the event only showcased a fraction of the items available on Etsy. Please visit Etsy Weddings for handmade & vintage wedding inspiration & shopping!
