You’ve probably heard about Pinterest.
And, you’ve probably heard about Etsy.
But, did you know…
Amazon now has a new department called “Handmade” ? They’re not paying me to tell you about it (but if they want to, I’m okay with that), I just thought brides should know about this cute corner of the interwebs.
The best part… if you have an Amazon Prime account, FREE SHIPPING. yep. Some exclusions apply, but I’m all about free.
1. If you go to Amazon and look at the top-left corner, there’s a drop down menu called “Shop by Department”. Go there.
2. At the bottom of the list, hover over “Handmade” & select “Stationery & Party Supplies” from the sublist that appears.
3. Then in the left side bar, under “Occasion”, click on “Wedding”. Ta-da!
In the Handmade>Wedding section, there’s tons of handmade decor, stationery, signs, ribbon wands, thank you notes, stickers, table centerpiece decor, banners, you name it.
Here are 10 things I found on Amazon Homemade today.
1. A Unique Take on Guest Sign In – $189
This was the priciest item I included, so I thought I’d show it to you first. Thing is though- it includes EVERYTHING: the frame, the stand, the personalized center chip with the couple’s initials, the basket & wood chips for your guests to sign, the marker holder that is also personalized and 2 sharpies wrapped in jute. A very shabby chic guest sign in experience.
2. Pillow Cases – $17
I just like these. It rhymes, they’re white and fluffy, and <3.
3. Sweetheart Table Sign – $25
A cute sign for the couple’s table.
4. Our Love Story Sign – $12
Your guests probably don’t know the relationship details and this is the cutest way to tell them about it. Just send in some of your relationship “firsts” and timeline and get a personalized sign to share the scoop with guests at your wedding.
5. Banner – $28
There are hundreds to choose from in a variety of price ranges,
“Best Day Ever”, “Just Hitched”, “Bride to Be”, “Just Married”, “Save the Date”, etc.
6. Thank You Stickers – $6
These come in a pack of 96 and you can get them in just about any color.
A great touch for “Thank You” Cards after the big day.
7. Wedding Ribbon Wands with Bells & Streamers – 50 wands for $75
These are popular for grand exit props.
They are colorful, photograph beautifully and make a little noise for the send off & final celebration of the night!
Venue Manager Tip:
You don’t need a wand for every guest.
Remember, many people don’t stay until the very end.
8. Wooden Table Numbers -$4 each
These are ~5-6″ tall and you can choose the color of the stain.
They’re great to place in floral centerpieces or in a mason jar, vase, etc.
9. Bride & Groom Sign – $65
This could be used on the back of chairs, for the dressing suites, or for added wall decor.
10. Instagram Sign – $10
