We’re all looking for elements that are more unique that reflect our personalities to incorporate into THAT special day. Many of us want something meaningful and original and not necessarily get swept into the world of predictability. Right? For me, the most memorable weddings don’t always mean over the top extravagance. It’s often more about the subtle details and the unconventional that makes me catch my breath. I’ve come across some of the most lovely items for this very special occasion. Here are just five of the most beautiful Etsy artisans and their goods that I’ve recently discovered…
