We are enamored by all the wonderful handmade wedding finds on Etsy. It’s a whirlwind of possibilities, so we dug up a few of our favorite Etsy stores, all of which are incredibly affordable! Happy hunting!

We met many talented vendors at the FLAX DIY wedding fair last weekend, and were especially taken with the work of Lover Bee Botany. Owner Brie styles floral and botanical displays for weddings, parties, photo shoots, restaurants and more.
We absolutely love it when we get to work with clients who think outside the box and aren’t afraid to veer away from tradition and get creative with their weddings. This was absolutely the case with Jeska and Brad, who had one of the most unique celebrations we’ve seen in a long time.
Jeska and Brad chose our Big Day suite in letterpress. We loved the pop of purple in their invites, which was definitely a running theme throughout the wedding — from the brides hair, to the flowers, to the purple layer at the bottom of her gorgeous custom made dress.
A good reminder for everyone’s big day!
These robot cake toppers are pretty amazing, we’re especially loving the paper flags with their initials.
Jeska and Brad printed out our free Big Day table numbers and mounted them on purple paper of course. How pretty are those flowers?
Genius seating chart which let’s people know where they are sitting and also explains who everyone is.
Congratulations Jeska & Brad! Thanks for being such a fun couple to work with!
This real wedding featured on Wedding Chicks is just gorgeous. We adore the vintage vibe that this bride and her team pulled off and nature never fails to be the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony. We’re big fans of Rifle Paper Co. so we loved seeing the save the date postcard we designed for Brianne and Brandon paired with their lovely wedding invitations.
The couple carried the invitation design to the drink table with this table cloth from Rifle. They did a great job of setting up an easy do-it-yourself drink table as well.
How stunning is this ombre cake made by Crisp Bake Shop in Sonoma?
Dawn Ranch is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding, and with just a few simple touches the space can really be transformed. We love the look of these streamers in the apple trees.
The flowers were done by Spiral Hand, just adding small vintage jars to the table with some colorful pops of flowers is all you really need for an outdoor wedding where nature takes center stage.
To see more of this wedding head over to Wedding Chicks. Congratulations Brianne and Brandon! Here’s to many years of happiness!

Last week we did a guest post for Snippet & Ink and shared some free downloads for table numbers and wedding signs. You can view and download those signs here. It was so much fun to create corresponding signs for two of our newest wedding suites, La Vie En Rose and Lemonade Stand and one of our most popular wedding suites — Nouveau Peonies.
Today we’re sharing even more free downloadable wedding signs. This one is for our new suite Love & Marriage.

If you follow us on Pinterest you know we can’t resist a good wedding inspiration board and we’re always creating new mood boards based on some of our favorite wedding suites. We thought we’d bring some of those inspiration boards to the blog and do a regular feature showing how you can style your wedding based on your invite. Once you decide on your invitation it can really be the anchor for all of your wedding decor and design– from the wedding flowers to the bridesmaids dresses. Today we’re showing off one of our favorite invitations for a summer or spring wedding, La Vie En Rose. We just added this suite to our collection and we love the pretty elegant feel of this floral invitation. La Vie En Rose is a versatile design that can be perfect for a rustic outdoor wedding or a more formal affair.
If you go the rustic route for decor this dessert table is a great addition, it’s casual and cool with just some burlap and vintage pieces added to the table. We would carry the soft pink color from the invites to the treats and think these pink heart cookies would pair lovely with the feel of a La Vie En Rose wedding.
This line up of bridesmaids in mix and match colors and floral dresses is a lovely way to keep a variety of colors in your wedding decor and not commit to just two or three colors. And what bridesmaid doesn’t love getting to chose her own dress? Flowers picked fresh from the garden and roses in mason jars and vintage bottles would pair well with the original floral wedding design.
To see more wedding inspiration check out our Pinterest boards. To see the full La Vie En Rose wedding suite head here. To view all of our floral wedding invitations click here.
Is there a particular design on our site you’d like us to create a mood board for? Let us know in the comments and we’ll feature it here next.
The image of the flowers is from Style Me Pretty, the bridesmaids dresses were found via 100 Layer Cake as was the pretty dessert table.
There’s nothing we love more than seeing our designs for brides on display and put to use at their weddings. We spend so much time at our computers working hard to get every design and detail just right, it’s so rewarding to see how they look on the big day!
Elizabeth and Kristof were married in Carmel, overlooking the mountains. We’re all about natural backdrops for weddings and this one is perfection.
Here’s some of the signage we worked on for the lovely couple. We’re excited to say that this design is now available on our site, we aptly named it Mountain Skyline. Like all of our skyline designs, this one is available in both letterpress and flat printing.
Congratulations Elizabeth and Kristof!

This wedding had it all. Beautiful woods and a beach side ceremony. We love the couples casual approach to their wedding day. Derek and Lauren wanted a simple but beautiful wedding and these photos are proof they achieved just that!
You can’t go wrong with this stunning view.
The couple chose our Seagulls Wedding Invitation which matched their Oregon beach setting perfectly.
Lauren and Derek also win best wedding song choices ever in our book. The couple’s processional song was “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin and their recessional song was “Sunshine of my Life” by Stevie Wonder.
Congratulations Lauren & Derek!

This real wedding featured on Style Me Pretty shows a classic side of San Francisco that we simply adore. Dream a Little Dream Events‘ Britt McNany and her beau Blake met in San Francisco and wed in San Francisco. Their theme was timeless, with dramatic details and bold colors. Plus, both the ceremony and reception took place in iconic buildings that were the perfect destination for their big day. We recreated a custom design to suit her romantic soiree along with some equally gorgeous day-of products.
Tables were each named by the various neighborhoods in our city, to guide guests to their seats. We love how the gorgeous deep red bouquets by Nancy Liu Chin match the cards.
A ceremony in St. Ignatius Church was the only place for these two. It’s sweeping archways and rich architecture set the tone for the night ahead.
This room is completely breathtaking. The entire Asian Art Museum is filled with historic and contemporary beauty, but to host a reception here is a true dream.
Custom printed place cards were set to match the table decor, with individual meal choices, too.
Congratulations Britt and Blake! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and a wonderful 2013!
