A Touch of Romance for Weddings

Whether they are fun, whimsical, elegant or classic, weddings by their very nature are romantic. You can dial up the romance with the design choices you add to your wedding. From the Etsy Wedding Team here are 5 handmade romantic ideas for weddings.


Flowing in the breeze

Wispy fabric blowing in the wind is perfect for adding romance to an outdoor or rustic wedding. Think flowing dresses, fabric banners and accessories, like this wrist-length veil.  {handmade by annemichelleheirloom}

Say it with Flowers

In addition to lovely bouquets and centerpieces, floral accents in your stationery or accessories, such as this gorgeous clutch, add a romantic touch. {handmade by bellesandcrystals}

Express Yourself

Beautiful messages of love can be sprinkled throughout your wedding, from quotes on your invitations and ceremony programs to signs at your reception, such as these flags perfect for a centerpiece or send off. {handmade by tinybirdarts}

Vintage details

Maybe it’s because we romanticize the past. But whatever the reason lace, classic brooches and prints from a bygone era are full of romance, such as these vintage-inspired wedding invitations. {handmade by DotStationeryDesign}


Mood lighting

A reception by candlelight. Sounds romantic, doesn’t it? There are many ways to personalize your reception lighting, including monogram candles, personalized luminaries to cover your votives or even custom candles, such as this seashell design perfect for a beach wedding. {handmade by ShellScapes}

Looking to show your originality? Here are 5 handmade wedding items from the Etsy Wedding Team that break out of the norm.

Flowers that aren’t. Button bouquets can be a sweet permanent floral arrangement that works well for vintage and glamorous weddings alike. Other interesting permanent floral ideas include clay flowers and fabric flowers. {handmade by http://www.letters4lilly.etsy.com}

Ring Pillows that aren’t. There’s great variety in ring pillows for your wedding. And increasingly there’s lots of choice in non-pillow options as well. Ceramic, baskets and even carved wood are some unique ideas for handmade weddings. {handmade by http://www.dawndalto.etsy.com}

Save the dates that do. Who says your stationery has to be actual stationery. With bookmarks, magnets, calendars and even floppy disks, couples tend to have a little more fun with their save the dates. But you can also carry that into your later wedding stationery, especially if you have a strong theme. {handmade by http://www.KembaCelebrations.etsy.com}

Guest books that aren’t. How about a guest box instead where guest write notes for the couple on cards? Other ideas for unique guest books: postcards, fabric and stones that guests can leave personal messages on. {handmade by http://www.cutthecakedesigns.etsy.com}

Necklaces without jewelry. Fabric necklaces can be even more stunning than jeweled ones. In addition to fabric flowers, lace, beading and clay appliqués can add beauty and interest to your bridal necklace. {handmade by http://www.hairbowswonderworld.etsy.com}
