Wedding Wednesday: I Want to Buy All The Things

Since becoming engaged, I've become even more obsessed with Etsy than I previously was. If that could have been possible. There is anything and everything you could possibly want to buy for your wedding on there.


I've been feeling a little down in the dumps lately about having such a long engagement, so I figured that I would get a start on some things that I could start now. Which includes buying some things ahead of time, and doing as many little DIY things ahead of time right now.

So, here are some of my most recent purchases:
Keep Calm, I'm the Maid of Honor Shirt (for my Sister, just because) -- airspin on Etsy


Chalkboard Easel -- Kirklands (use a coupon!)


Wooden Cut Monogram (to use as a guestbook!) -- MonogramsyLetters on Etsy



(these are for our coffee favors!! more on this later!)

So, as you can see, I have been busy with my internet purchasing addiction. I'm excited that things are starting to vaguely come together. We have about 500 days until the big day (which still seems like such a long time), so I am just trying to bide my time a little bit more. 

We did just book our photographer, but I'm just waiting for our contract, and then I will share that with you! She is an amazing photographer, and I'm so excited to work with her!

  1. I love everything! On the bright side, you can spread out your purchases with a long engagement so your finances don't take a huge blow all at once! But I'd be impatient, too... ;) Loving your wedding Wednesday posts!

  2. I feel you! Etsy is sooooooo tempting when you are engaged. I just want to buy everything! I've been trying to use it mainly for ideas and try to make some of the things I want myself. I'll probably order a few things, though!

  6. Adorable ideas!! And great idea getting a head start! You will be so thankful you did that when time flies and it's suddenly 3 months away and you don't have a bunch left to do (or worse, buy!).

  8. I think this is great! It was really fun to get to look at all the little details when you're farther out; I loved picking out favors and little touches when we still had about 450+ days! Love the MOH shirt too :)

  11. Thanks lady! That was part of the plan, and now I'm in full shopping mode :) I almost would rather shop for the details than the big things!

  12. I've been gathering ideas on there and on my secret Pinterest board for a few months, and just now I feel comfortable buying things. Now I just feel the itch!

  13. Congrats on being the MOH! You need that shirt! :) I have a Pinterest board as well, but because that is mostly for ideas, I like to keep that private.

  14. You two should definitely start a shared Pinterest board! My mom and I had one (a little bit before I got engaged) and we bounce all our ideas off eachother. That etsy shop where the stamp is from is amazing!

  15. Right!! Have you decided what our favors are yet?

  18. I'm glad I'm not the only one! Sometimes people look at me like I'm nuts! I just want to get started, and I want to save a little bit of money throughout the engagement time.
