The Etsy Wedding Team was in a treasury today. Much thanks to Capitolagirl for putting together a gorgeous collection of items from Etsy Wedding Team Members. Here’s hoping this treasury lands on the front page!

Tips from the Team: How to Register Everywhere you Want!

The Etsy Wedding Team is full of fabulous ideas to help you plan your perfect wedding and we will be providing you with an on-going blog feature called “Tips from the Team”. The team itself has a wealth of personal experience in weddings, from planning their own, helping with others, or working in the wedding business. Between all the members, we’ve amassed a wealth of helpful little tidbits and ideas that we’d like to share with you to make your planning a little easier.

To kick off the tips, I’m going to offer one from myself personally. We all know weddings aren’t all about the gifts (but they certainly are a fun part of it!). However, putting together the perfect registry to reflect you and your spouse can sometimes be a time-consuming and difficult process. For those who treasure handmade and unique items, it can be particularly daunting, as few individual stores have registries for one of a kind or handmade items. Fear not though—you can make your registry personal and ask for **exactly** what you’d like.

On MyRegistry.Com you can add items to your registry from any store in the world. That even includes handmade shopping sites such as Etsy (hint!hint!) or charities through charity gift certificates. The possibilities are endless, and the site is perfect for the traditional or completely non-traditional couple. Visit the MyRegistry.Com Tutorial to find out how to add a gift, or browse the site to find out all the other great features such as gift tracking that are available. Best of all you can do it all without ever leaving your home or office. That’s one of the best features for busy brides and grooms.

Etsy Wedding Team is Official!

Yes, it’s true. The Etsy Wedding team, has “officially” been declared a bonafide team by Etsy. What does that mean? It means that this team has the official go ahead to bring brides and grooms the best wedding products, and to market collectively as a team. (That means one stop, no fuss shopping!) I thought to celebrate, I’d showcase just a few of the unique wedding items that have been created by team members. You can find more unique items by visiting team members links to the right or by visiting our TeamPage on Etsy.
