    Wedding Paper Flower "Curtain"

    "I originally fell in love with Love Embellished by Sofia because of their dreamy book page garlands and wedding backdrops. This seller's book page pieces are particularly fab for literary-minded couples, and they even make little book page flower bouts. Now they also make amazing driftwood boat wedding favors! I can't think of a more uniquely whimsical favor option for a wedding by the water."

  • Seed Favors

    Seed Favors

    "I can summarize my love for this Etsy shop in two words, really: SEED BOMBS. Seed bombs are hands-down the best wedding favor option to come along in decades. You can do candies or little sweets, or little trinkets with your initials and dates on them, but why not give your guests something to beautify (or yummify) their surroundings instead?

    VisuaLingual gives you a ton of options — you can choose regional wildflower seed bombs for your yard, edible flowers or salad greens seed bombs, dog- and cat-friendly plants, you name it! You can also get your bomb bags customized with your names and wedding date (of course)."

    Art Deco Tea, Cocoa or Chai Favors

    "These guys have the market cornered on attractively packaged, customized coffee wedding favors. Apropos Roasters roasts their own beans, and will happily grind them for you so your guests can use these on the go.

    Stick these favors in your welcome bags, or leave them on your wedding tables at a morning-after brunch. And just in case coffee's not your bag, they also do yummy chocolate-covered espresso bean and almond favors!"

    "If you don't know about KNOT & BOW, you should! This is my go-to place for all things craft supply. Just browsing through their shop gives me inspiration for tons of projects. They have such a great selection of supplies that you really won't find anywhere else, like this confetti. This is one shop to visit any time you need to mail a letter, wrap a gift or add that extra touch to your latest project."

    5/29

    Wedding-Day Card for Your Spouse

    "I'm a huge fan of all types of cards. No matter what the occasion is, I must find the perfect card to go along with it. I've had friends frame the card as art in their home, which for me, is a sign that I bought the perfect one. The Paper Cub Co. has tons of unique designs, modern color palettes, and even some hand-lettered options! What a perfect combination for all of your card needs."

    Geometric Napkins

    "Seeing as I am in the events industry, I love the details. I always find myself obsessing over the perfect napkins for a brunch or dinner I am hosting. The Apiarist offers simplicity with a punch. The designs are perfect and the quality is wonderful (I am often concerned about quality when it comes to some Etsy purchases, so this one is huge for me)."

    Guest Book Alternative

    "A guest book isn’t just a book anymore! This guest book alternative by Suzy Shoppe is one find I wish I had at my own wedding. It works like this: guests sign their name directly onto a 3D heart at your reception. After the wedding, frame and display it in your home."

    Vintage Wreath Table Numbers

    "I love the rustic feel to these wood table numbers from Red Cloud Boutique. The lettering and pretty border design creates a unique touch to this wood slice. You can incorporate these into a woodland wedding, dress them up with lace for a vintage wedding or set them against a mason jar for classic eco-chic table decor."

  • Bunting Gift Tags
    14/29

    Bunting Gift Tags

    "I love this vendor's use of colors and their eclectic range of products from pennant banners to chalkboard style coasters to shabby chic birdcage decor. Pretty French Things takes the extra steps to go green in their printing and packaging; they print everything on sugarcane carbon neutral paper and refill their ink rather than buying new cartridges. Their postcards are printed using SFI certified paper and a waterless printing process.

    They use recycled, vintage, and antique materials and everything is made by hand. All of their packing material is biodegradable or recycled."

Each topper is completely original and one-of-a-kind. You can get your names or fun quotes such as 'we do,' 'best day ever,' or 'always & forever.'"

    Felt Garlands

    "Garlands are so diverse — we see them featured in so many beautiful weddings in hundreds of different ways. Enter, the felt garland! I love the pops of color that Ruth from Felt Foxes brings to her garlands; they're both contemporary and whimsical at the same time. If you don't have time to make your own, Ruth can whip up a custom creation for you, or you can purchase the felt balls separately to get all creative with your bad self!"
