Etsy Weddings is a completely new shopping experience which marries inspiration, real stories, product, trends, how-to's and expert advice into one place. With the weddings launch, Etsy has also released a Registry! Registry being one of the most frequent product requests, I am so personally thrilled for the timing of this release being in the midst of the whole weddings process myself.
In conjunction with the launch of the Etsy Weddings experience and new Registry available on the site, we've been planning a special weddings launch event, named To Have and To Hold, to showcase in-person examples of the breadth of one-of-a kind items and inspiration for every component of the weddings experience.
For those that didn't get a chance to get a ticket or were too far away to attend, I snapped photos of each of the vignettes to virtually share.
Here's a shot of the space as we began set-up:
It was a really beautiful open space with wood floors, white walls and exposed brick detailing throughout — very similar to a gallery. The events team had everything in place and ready for set up when I arrived, so I got to it.
I primarily helped piece together the bridal and paper goods section of the space — filled to the brim with amazing handmade and vintage heirloom wedding products. I felt like a kid in a candy shop since I don't always get to see all the products I am so familiar with online in my everyday work in person. I have to say the detailing and craftsmanship in every piece we had for placement in the event was stunning beyond belief.
I was especially thrilled by all the little details throughout — that can each be found on Etsy.
Being a part of the Weddings launch at Etsy and the Weddings event has been such a treat — on both a professional and personal level. I'm looking forward to being able to actually and officially add Etsy items to Tim and my's registry for our own wedding and even more excited that we as a company are finally able to offer this option for all couples.
Here I am pictured with a few of my favorite coworkers & friends (from left to right) Nicole, Dayna, Emily & Heather just before the press preview got going.
I hope you enjoyed getting a little tour of the Etsy Weddings To Have and To Hold event and that you will poke around the new Weddings experience on Etsy.
