Wedding Guest Blogger: Favorite Etsy Wedding Purchases with Southern Somedays

Hi there lovelies! Corey and I are enjoying our first full day in Hawaii today. We're in Oahu then will be headed to Maui on Monday. Today marks the start of my wedding guest blogger series. On Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next couple weeks, you'll find posts from some awesome married and engaged ladies about the planning process. To kick things off, today's guest blogger is Courtney who blogs at Southern Somedays. Enjoy girls! -xo, Elizabeth

Hi y'all! I'm Courtney and I blog over at Southern Somedays.

I originally started blogging about our wedding planning, decorating our home and starting a life after college. But now that our wedding is over (thank goodness!) I am able to actually blog about the other two fun things going on. Today, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite Etsy purchases from the wedding.

Etsy is like Pinterest to me. I could spend hours just searching for neat purchases, but instead of like Pinterest where you could completely fail at a project all you have to do is actually click the buy button. It seems to work out better for me then Pinterest.

While I was wedding planning, I had a few specific items I really had my little heart's desire on for our wedding. The first was beautiful calligraphy for the envelopes and I knew I really wanted to the invitations to be letterpressed. I searched for over 3 months for the perfect invitation and never found anything worth pursuing. After looking on Etsy I immediately found Elecia's site and fell in love. What could be better than calligraphy and letterpress in one? Absolutely nothing! Not to mention how great of customer service she has, she was hands down my favorite of all my wedding vendors.

Sorry, but I had to blur out the important information. You know how crazy some of those internet stalkers are ;)
My husband is a huge Alabama football fan. Yes, we don't even live in Alabama but he is obsessed. I had thought about the idea for one of those cute lace garters but once I had my eyes on this beauty, I knew the search was over. Bo was another great Etsy seller; she was super fast getting my order to me and had great communication.

Our reception venue did not want us doing a sparkler sendoff so I had to think of something creative. I had seen several people do pom poms for their favorite teams but immediately went to Etsy and found these adorable streamers, plus they even came in our wedding colors. It definitely was a great purchase and made for some great pictures since our wedding party decided it would be fun to break them out before the reception was even over.
