I went home very inspired on Thursday evening after enjoying a fun filled evening full of flowers, G&T and some of Etsy’s finest artist and creators. We attended the Etsy Wedding Fair to scout out talented individuals which could bring new ideas and innovative designs to The Bijou’s Bride wedding planning business. And we definitely found that! The room was FULL of beautifully designed stationery, cake toppers, wedding dresses, shoes, jewellery & much more. Each and every one of the products had been handcrafted and we got talking to a few of the designers behind them…
So here it is, a collection of our favourite finds and where to get them:
