I love Etsy. I first discovered Etsy when planning my own wedding years ago and purchased quite a few products from various sellers. I’ve always thought that Etsy was a great resource for wedding goods, or other handmade and unique gifts. But recently I discovered a new use for etsy: beautifully designed invitations and other items.
There are some incredibly talented designers on Etsy who sell their pre-made designs for a fraction of the cost of hiring a designer for a custom project. Many designers offer the digital file and you can print wherever you like – or not at all (you can email the file as an evite). The designer will usually make all of the necessary edits and a good designer will do at least one round of edits and then will send you the file in a format so that you can send it directly to the printer of your choice. It’s a great way to get designer invitations without paying an arm and a leg, which is great if you’re like me and still love paper invitations.
As we head into spring, it should be time to start planning bridal showers. I wanted to share some of my favorite bridal shower invitation designs available on Etsy. These are at various price points, from $15 to $25, and all are offered as a digital file only (some designers may offer to print as well for an added cost).
Editors note: All Etsy stores were active at time of publication.
For a bride who loves some glitter and sparkle, this invitation is perfect. It’s appropriate for the modern, city bride. Or the bride who loves chevron (you can pretend the stripes are half of a chevron!). Via digibuddha Paperie:
For the bride who is a bit more country, a bit more rustic, and loves mason jars, this is an ideal choice. Via bella love letters:
Lots of brides start their kitchen collections from their shower gifts. If a bride needs lots of items for a kitchen, this invitation is a cute way of sending that message to guests. This listing is for the invitation and matching recipe cards for guests to share their favorites with the bride, but a listing for the invitations alone is also available. Via palmetto mama:
Bridal teas are still popular – I love that idea! This is a fun invitation for a bridal tea that is more modern than traditional – I love it! Also this invitation looks like it’s for a tea party AT a winery – if that exists, I’m in heaven! Via Beyond Digital:
For a fun bride who loves her stilettos and a good mimosa, this invitation is a great choice – the perfect mix of sass and style. Via Yellow Brick Graphics:
Finally, if you are hosting a bridal shower at a winery (which is an excellent idea, by the way), this is an excellent choice for an invitation. It’s minimalist and very cool. Via She She McBride:
Those are just a few of my favorite designs – visit Etsy to look for a design you love. And it’s not limited to bridal showers – think of Etsy for invitations for baby showers, birthday parties, graduations, baptisms, even weddings.
