If you are in the middle of planning your dream wedding and you don’t know why smart brides shop at Etsy well that’s ok you just don’t know Etsy. Throughout our article below we are going to try and help you get to know Etsy a little bit better and also show you how they can help you plan an amazing wedding.
Any grooms that made it here looking for wedding planning advice we are sorry we assumed that the brides do all the shopping. We are glad you are here and we want you to be a smart groom. Actually we want you to be a smart couple. Planning a wedding can be an emotional experience and sometimes both the budget and plan go right out the window. Since most relationships end because of fighting over money we want to give you the best chance at happy life together. One where you get the wedding you want but don’t overload and burden yourselves with debt.
What Most Young Couples Struggle With
The first thing you are going to learn is that planning a wedding is unbelievably expensive. Over the next few months or even years of planning your dream wedding you are going to be faced with expenses that you probably would have ever imagined. Everyone you talk to will want a deposit and they are usually looking cash only.
Ever dream of buying a $500 cake? Probably not! But get ready as you are about to find out just how much a bakery can charge for dried out cake that is elegantly decorated in fondant icing.
As unfortunate as it is this very special day you have been dreaming of your entire life is going to be limited to your budget. As a young couple you need to think about the future you are planning together. You need to plan for future expenses like having children, buying a new home, or even booking your honeymoon. Life is about to get very expensive for you both. So finding a few ways to save a little bit on your wedding will help you prepare for all the really big expenses you have coming up in the near future.
The second thing we hear from most young couples is that it is extremely difficult to find exactly what they are looking for. Local wedding boutiques for the most part sell what most people in the wedding industry call “vanilla wedding products”. They are your typical generic products with white frills, they lack any type of personality or charm, and are marked up three times higher then what they should be legally allowed to charge you.

Start Your Wedding Shopping Online
We always recommend that before any couple venture out into crazy world of local wedding boutiques you start your wedding shopping online. Get a feel for what you want and how much it should cost you. Online retailers and companies like Etsy are not paying for expensive rent on storefronts across the country. They are also not paying the salaries of high pressure sales people who are going to tell you need to spend more than you actually do. Etsy allows you to shop pressure free and from the comfort of your own home.
We do encourage that after you have seen what is online to get together with your girls and hit up the local boutiques. It’s the best part of the wedding planning process and we would hate to see you miss out on that. But a little bit of pre-shopping prep work will help you to stick to your budget and find the perfect accessories for the theme of wedding you are planning.
