Part One of our Etsy Wedding...

So this is part one...
My daughter Lauren was married this past January at Padua Hills Theater in Claremont CA. http://paduahillsrenovation.blogspot.com/  It is a historical site located in the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley, So Cal.
We first learned about Etsy while we were planning and buying and planning and buying...We soon found ourselves spending hour after hour searching for the most special, one of a kind, items to make her day perfect, and it was!
I wanted to say a special thank you to all those who's talents made everything so memorable. I will include all links to their Etsy shops so that hopefully you'll see something you like and you can contact them easily.

At the rehearsal dinner we wanted a fun way to introduce all the players and wanted an easy way for our coordinator to know who was who. We found these adorable pins and had one made for each of the wedding party. They loved them.  Michelle did her best to find all that we needed. Here are just two. They were a big hit.

Lauren had gifts she ordered for her attendants from a wedding website but wanted to add a little something else. We found these adorable cosmetic bags that were perfect. She picked a fabric that she felt reflected each of her bridesmaids personalities. They loved them.

We had 4 very special little girls in our wedding. Lauren found the perfect dresses but they were sleeveless so she ordered these handmade shrugs. The girls looked so cute and they fit perfectly.  It was great to work with Carolyn on the design and color choice.

Lauren's Grandmother wanted to give her a special keepsake so we ordered this beaurtiful dress label that had her name and marriage date on it. Our seamstress sewed into the bottom skir of her dress. It was also her something blue. http://www.etsy.com/shop/MondeDesign

 I have a lot more...jewelry, decor, ring pillows, shrugs...
