If you’re further along in your journey of wedding planning, you may have already heard of Etsy.com. The website is a collection of vendors who sell handmade and vintage goods, many that are specifically for weddings.
We’ve been searching around Etsy and have found some amazingly talented Milwaukee designers and artisans who sell items specifically for weddings. From designer bridal belts to custom wedding invitations, deciding to support local Milwaukee vendors can also include Internet shopping as well.
Couture Bridal Accessories- Jaxie Bridal
We’ve been a huge fan of Jaxie for a very long time. While we recommend you stop in at Miss Ruby to see some Jackie Barutha’s pieces in person, she also sells all over the world via Etsy. Check out Jaxie Bridal shop and enjoy some of the gorgeous pieces she creates below.
Custom Handbags and Wristlets – Permanent Baggage
While Etsy has handmade items featuring things you never thought could be created, the custom handbags crafted by Permanent Baggage really stood out as an awesomely creative, one-of-a-kind gift for your bridesmaids. Best thing is they are handcrafted in Milwaukee!
Custom orders can be created based on your style, wedding color scheme, or your bridesmaid’s preferences. Their urban, bohemian flair is perfect for those into edgy indie fashion. Check out the Permanent Baggage Etsy store for more super cool options like the ones featured below.
Custom Wedding Invites – DCo Lovenotes
We’ve met Danielle from DC Lovenotes at various wedding events. She is super sweet and awesomely creative. Her original invitations are always gorgeous, and incorporate a crisp, clean look to her design. She excels at urban inspired design and her love for what she does comes through in her work.
Floral Inspired Wedding Accessories – glamMKE
These one-of-a-kind floral and glam inspired accessories include earrings, hair clips, shoe clips, and much more. Custom orders to match your style, color, size and other tweaks to glamMKE’s design are always welcome. Check out glamMKE’s Etsy shop. Can’t go wrong with a name like glamMKE!
Custom Wedding Invites – Cracked Designs
Tara from Cracked Designs has a background in graphic design and quit her day job a few years ago to follow her passion of creating unique and very clever greeting cards. After creating Save the Dates for her wedding, she fell in love with wedding invitation design.
Tara pulls a lot of inspiration from her love of Milwaukee. Her recent projects include Milwaukee neighborhood montages, that include Bay View, The East Side and most recently Walker’s Point. As seen below, her creation of the Wisconsin Beer poster could be an awesome groomsmens gift as well. Check out Cracked Designs‘ Etsy shop to see more.
