Huff Post Weddings shares the announcement popular Etsy.com sellers are going mainstream. In Tuesday’s post, “Etsy, Nordstrom Wedding Collaboration Brings Handmade Goods to Major Retailer”, Huff post reports “some of online retailer Etsy’s handmade wedding crafts — beloved by indie brides — have gone mainstream in a big, big way.”
Etsy.com is an online marketplace to sell and buy items online, with the catch everything is either handmade or vintage. Etsy.com’s popularity has soared in recent years within many different categories from jewelry, children’s ware to wedding accessories and decor.
Brides looking for something unique, trendy and personalized for their wedding day flock to etsy.com. Not a brave DIYer or lacking the time to commit to a wedding project, etsy.com is a favorite for handmade, personal touches to customize your wedding theme. And the best part you are supporting individual artists and small business owners.
Huff post weddings gives us the scoop, “On Monday, Etsy and Nordstrom announced that they’ve partnered up: The major retailer is now selling wedding goods (think bridal accessories, decor and wedding party gifts) from a selection of Etsy vendors.”
Etsy.com items to be featured range from accessories, bridal party gifts, cake topper to personalized service ware. The current collaboration with Nordstrom features 6 etsy.com sellers in an 80 piece collection. This premier collection holds a vintage, rustic with whimsical touches feel, all which are popular wedding trends right now.
Which goose’s pink bud headband and Serephine’s ‘renee’ bridal hair flower piece are soft whimsical wedding accessories for the bride or bridesmaids. Either is a beautiful handmade touch for a soft, romantic wedding look. Milk and Honey’s ‘Spread Love’ butter knife along with the vintage stamped wedding forks are another example of quirky, fun personalized touches. A special touch that can make an appearance on the bridal party reception table or make for a fun wedding keepsake.

With countless resources and inspiration available to couples they are looking to make customized and personalized touches to their wedding day. Etsy.com is the perfect avenue to pump some handmade, creative touches into decor and fashion. Half of the fun is searching through wedding categories and seller’s marketplaces. Can the thrill and popularity of shopping the online marketplace transfer into a retail setting? We’ll just have to wait and see.
