Etsy Dresses

If you've never heard of Etsy then I've got a right treat for you today!
Etsy is a brilliant online community full of  gorgeous handmade vintage and crafty creations. It's been around for a fair old while now and generally people use it to buy smaller handmade creations like bags, knitted and crochet goods and beautiful prints, but there is a serious crafty fashion side to Etsy and more importantly a whole section dedicated to Weddings.

So today I thought I'd share with you some of the amazing dresses that you can buy from Etsy, usually from new up and coming designers, for a fraction of the price of the big labels but just as beautiful and all handmade...

Folded Roses make some gorgeous gowns at an absolute snip {this one's just £216.64} crafted in their studio in France Sally who creates these lovely frocks takes a lot of inspiration from flowers and all the dresses include floral motifs or appliques.

Big fan of period dramas? Love a bit of Jane Austin? then check out some of the designs crafted by Ranunculus Market {for just £197.52}

Nostalgia is another lovely Etsy boutique  {based in the USA} with very affordable prices. This lovely fluffy Tulle number is just £244.58

Having a super cool laid back bohemian festival wedding? Check out Aida Coronados handmade Mexican style dresses

Finally this perfect little 50's dress from Australian based boutique Silver Sixpence who also do a nice little line in textile bouquets! This little beauty is just £270

So get yourself over to Etsy if you're still searching for your frock, get yourself a brew as you're likely to be there for some time!

{There are, of course, dangers when buying from sites such as Etsy so please read through the feedback on a sellers page before purchasing anything and get your measurements right! Also be sure to watch out for Chinese knock-offs on sites like Etsy and Ebay, copies of designers like Jenny Packham pop up all over the place, and if it seems too good to be true it probably is!
Don't get me wrong some of these Chinese companies can do a great deal but don't expect the same level of quality and customer service and there is a pretty big chance that dresses can go missing or get stuck at customs.}
