Hi Bridal Babes! Since we’re now in double digits {hooray!}, I’ve been ordering any last minute online purchases for the wedding so they have time to ship, arrive way before our date and not stress me out – waiting on them to arrive! Having a DIY wedding, I wanted to make sure we had some pieces that we didn’t have to DIY ourselves, but that we’re unique and thoughtful items. Etsy is one of my favorite online places to shop for items that I’d like to be unique, personalized and a little less cookie-cutter without my DIY efforts. I’ve found quite a few awesome items for our wedding already and wanted to share them with you for inspiration, as well as a few that I’ve still got my eye on!


Large Rose Gold Balloons


To start, I’m loving these super large {40 inch} rose gold balloons. They’re a really fun item and would look amazing behind a dessert table {as seen below}, bridal shower or bachelorette party, as well as a dreamy wedding photo op!

Love Balloons via Supply & Co. $40


Garter


This garter was love at first sight. Although a garter goes mostly unseen, when I saw this one, I knew it was perfect. I love how subtle and gorgeous it is all at the same time. Taken from your measurements, this garter fits perfectly and will be a great keepsake.

Cake Topper


I’m loving this sweet cake topper we bought for our mini cut wedding cake! I’m planning to place this on top of our cake along with a garden rose for a sweet and simple look!

Leather Suspenders


These are going to be the perfect touch to my Groom’s wedding day outfit. Handmade out of leather {and a steal at only $20}, this was one of Joseph’s Etsy picks. I’m looking forward to these sneaking into some of our wedding photos when his jacket comes off!

Instagram Sign


I’ve been eyeing this Instagram sign for awhile! I love the floral design and option to have it printed large {up to 24×36}. A really cute touch to capture Instagram pictures on your wedding day!

Wooden Sign


This gorgeous wooden sign with modern white calligraphy is also on my want list! I love signage details that can live in your home after the big day!

Wooden Sign via Wooden That Be Somethin’ $24


Foiled Prints + Discount Code!


Last but certainly not least, this is one of my favorite Etsy purchases so far. Not only will it be an adorable addition to our wedding day decor, but it will live on a wall in our house long after our special day! I love gold {if you haven’t noticed} and it makes a great keepsake or personalized wedding/shower gift for your home. This shop also features lovely quotes, state love prints and custom work. Not to mention, they’re so generous… Ashley, the owner + designer of Foiled Prints is giving ALL Something Turquoise readers 20% their purchases from her shop until 7/31/15 – how awesome is that!!?? Use the code TURQUOISE20 at checkout!

I hope you loved my Etsy picks as much as I do! I’m looking forward {beyond belief} to seeing all of these pieces come together sooner than later. I’ll be back next month talking about registering, honeymoon funds and what worked best for us.
