Amazing Wedding Items from the Etsy Design Awards

The Etsy Design Awards are Etsy’s first-ever global award program. Honoring the work of creatives from around the world, #TheEtsies will highlight the best of Etsy and celebrate the talented people behind the winning products.

Selected from thousands of entries received from around the world, 160 global finalists are in the running for the $15,000 USD Grand Prize or the top prize in one of five categories: Inventive Decor, Signature Style, Festive Celebrations, Earth-Friendly, and Creative Collaborations. 

Look, there are some things on Etsy that are, how shall we say, interesting. But I took some time to look at the finalists, and wow, are there some amazing, beautiful and truly creative items. Here are some of my favorites, which you can incorporate into your wedding!

Wedding Planning Ideas

This is a custom book featuring your own story in it and a place to secure an engagement ring when you are ready to pop the question. Even better, the book is upcycled from a French antique.
