I think it’s safe to say that wedding planning just got harder.
With COVID-19 disrupting everyday life for everyone, trying to pin down a wedding date is nigh on impossible – especially if you’re hoping for wedding guests to travel from overseas.
Instead of eating my feelings like I typically do when stressed, I’ve gone for the retail therapy approach, rounding out my top 10 Etsy picks for wedding planners everywhere.
I can’t promise they’ll turn up quickly with all non-essential stuff ground to a halt, but purchasing from these small businesses will give them a much needed cash bump (Let’s #StandWithSmall am I right?!) AND you’re buying future-you a present. So it’s win/win!
Keep your sparkles safe
These velvet ring boxes are a pretty option for a practical purpose
Or keep your engagement ring safe while you do the dishes in this pretty handmade ring dish
Colouring-in is supposed to be relaxing right?
If you don’t laugh you’ll cry, so you might as well have some fun. Bonus: they’re an instant download, so you can colour in (between snacks and netflix binges).
Write those notes, flesh out the budget with wedding planning pencils.
This mug that says everything.
Or prepare to get dressed into something a little more formal than PJs
Of course, you’ll need a wine glass to go with your t-shirt
Get organised by buying some of those smaller bits and pieces
Like this garter set – so pretty!
Or a lace robe for getting ready… and the morning after
When your day finally arrives, make sure your rings make it down the aisle with this pretty ring pillow alternative
