5 Things We Want From Amazon’s New Wedding Shop

When it comes to wedding planning, Etsy was always considered to be the one-stop-shop for bridal bits with a difference. ?From wedding dresses to handmade favours, if your nuptials?are approaching and you want it, Etsy will have it. Yes, it’s here you really can create a big day that looks almost exactly like your saved Pinterest?board. But now, they’ll have some competition thanks to Amazon. The e-commerce site announced an addition to its already-existing “Handmade at Amazon” storefront called “The Wedding Shop.”

“We created the Handmade Wedding Shop with the savvy couple in mind,” the head of marketing for the department told Women’s Wear Daily. “The ability to purchase products from local artisans on the Handmade Wedding Shop offers customers a boutique shopping experience coupled with the convenience and selection of [Amazon].”

It’s yet to launch on the UK site, but the good news is that you can buy directly from Amazon US with some extra shipping costs. Hey, needs must.

Here are five things that we’ll be adding to the top of our wedding wish lists:

Custom Leaf Design Wedding Cake Topper, $19

Because who care about the cake when you could have a topper that pretty?

Save the Date: Will you be my Bridesmaid?Scratch-Off Card Donut Card, $5.50

I’ll be much more inclined to be your?bridesmaid if you say please with one of these.

Gold Wedding Crown Headpiece, $43

In case you didn’t feel special enough.

5 Gold Glitter Glass Jardin Vases with Soft Pink Bows, $35

Gorgeous centrepieces, but yes, the guests are going to know there’s no way in hell you made those?yourself.

3pcs Pink Morganite Engagement Ring Set, $1,225

The best saved for last.
