Bridal Daze Is Here!

In an effort to cure brides, grooms, and their families and friends of the impending "Bridal Daze" that usually occurs during wedding planning, the Etsy Twitter Team is embarking on a week-long journey to help all those affected by that “glazed over” expression when faced with so many choices.

On our blog this week you will find everything from handmade “Save the Date” cards and invitations, jewelry for the bride and attendants, candles, guest books, scrapbooks, gifts, a little food to tide you over, and thank you and note cards. It’s the one-stop-shopping location you dreamed of when you were a little girl dreaming about your wedding. (Ha! Like all of us girls did that, right?!)

After you have chosen your location and date for the wedding you will need two things: “Save the Date” cards and invitations to the big day. Here are some really great ideas for going handmade for your paper goods!!

This shop has many choices for the handmade wedding. They carry personal stationery and handmade invitations as well as "Save the Date" stamps to create your own cards.

Check out Purple Lemon Designs' Wedding Stamps and Stationery shop section.

Nice selection. I can only imagine nowadays how frustrating it could get with all of the choices. I do painted glassware for weddings, events, and gifts. There are so many painters who offer similar items. It is a lot to consider.

I will probably be benefiting from this series. I've been putting off getting married for quite some time because I dread the planning part. But I know that I'll have access to so many tips and ideas, I think I'm just gonna go for it.

Planning for the Big Day can get so stressful! These stores will take care of the paper products so well! I will spread the word around to my friends who are getting ready to be married.
Handmade Rocks!

My sister is getting married. Due to limited budget, she probably wouldn't be able to spend much, but it's always fun to look around for ideas
