Welcome to the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show with links for readers to donate to Wish Upon a Wedding.
“Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.” -www.wishuponawedding.org

The first artisan in this category for Ring Bearers and Flower Girls is Aphrodite’s Canvas. “With Aphrodite’s Canvas I incorporate romantic images with the beauty of nature. Greens, browns, rust etc. I believe every color ignites emotion, and I appreciate them all.” “The ring disc was perfect for our rings and for our wedding style. Best part is we can use it again in the future as an ornament or simply displayed as a memento of our wedding.”
Next, is Diana from White Thistle Bridal Designs. “I love all fabrics especially silks and anything that sparkles. Sewing has always been where I could bring to life my ideas and thoughts (whether great or not). I love the unusual and unique, so you just might find something in my shop that makes you pause or do a double take. Enjoy!” “I went back and forth looking at different sellers before deciding on this pillow! I’m so glad I did because this pillow is AMAZING! Deana was a pleasure to work with and shipping was very fast! Can’t wait for my nephew to use this pillow at my wedding! You will not regret buying from Deana!”

Next, we have Floral Accents. In addition to Floral Accents, the owner also has the shop Fascinating Creations and was featured in the Veils, Headpieces, and Hair Accessories section of the show. “I have been a floral designer for 15 years and love to create different designs. I look forward to working with you to help with your floral needs.” “Perfect ring bearer pillow for my sister’s wedding. It matched her colors and flowers beautifully. Everyone loved how different it was!”
Here we have Woomi, “I launched my collection on Etsy when I was living in New York, now I moved back to my home country Korea, I promise to continue to develop new styles. This shop is true reflection of my simple yet, whimsical and romantic aesthetic.” “I received my ring bearer pillow and it’s super cute! I’m glad I bought from woomi and I absolutely recommend!”

Whether it’s bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, cake toppers, pew bows, ceremony arrangements, or ring bearer alternatives, there is something here for everyone.” “I fell in love with GardenSidestudio’s ring bearer bird’s nest and twig flower girl basket! I got to customize the color of the two speckled eggs in the nest and the color of the ribbon. She was happy to match the ribbon with my wedding colors 🙂 I would definitely buy from them again. These were made to order and were carefully packaged. Without my asking, she messaged me a picture of the nest and basket when she was done making them before I bought them to make sure I liked the result. She definitely loves what she does and it shows. Thanks Garden Side Studio!”
Jen of The Ritzy Rose says, “I am a designer from New York now living in Columbus, Ohio. In the spring of 2010, I married the man of my dreams, and I had a blast creating every aspect of our wedding. This process expanded my creativity and took me in many new directions. You can expect many of them to show up here.” Thanks for helping make the flags so personal with extra touches! they are exactly like what I imagined. I cant wait to share some pictures =).”
“Modern Victorian was created by Velvet and Corley Hodges, a mother/daughter design team. Velvet is a decorative painter by trade and Corley is a young adult novelist. Their obsession for texture is reflected in their designs. They also share a love of fabric and frills which was bestowed upon them by their late grandmother. Thanks for your interest in their creative design!” “It’s gorgeous! Our flower girl is going to look so pretty carrying this! I didn’t notice in the picture, but there are beautiful burgundy rhinestones lining the top. Love it! Shipping was very quick and great communication. I’ll be sending pics as soon as I can. Thank you again!”
As seen in Martha Stewart Weddings Spring 2011 Magazine, Olive and Fern crafts “lovely handmade Flower girl Dresses, perfect for a casual, destination, rustic…or outdoor Wedding.” “These are even more perfect in person! I have 5 little flower girls and they all love them! Olive and fern was so great to work with, and answered any and all questions so quickly! I highly recommend purchasing if you are interested!

All items are custom made to suit your needs…Everything is handmade with care from quality materials. A lot of time and craftsmanship is put into each item. Since I do take custom orders, most everything can be done in another color or fabric. If you see a style you like but want to make design changes it is usually possible. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.” “We received the dresses today and could not be more pleased with the final product. They are made with a good quality fabric – fully lined with tulle and even the ribbon is constructed out of a really nice silk fabric. Excellent customer service, beautiful clothing, and would definitely recommend this person to any buyer.”
