On my hunt for custom made things for a low price I found etsy. And I instantly fell in love with this site. I found etsy because of a forum which I am an active member on Best Destination Wedding . It is so great to find so much info all in one place. Thanks to this forum I haven't turned into a bridezilla or have decided to cancel my wedding all together.
But back to Etsy . I ordered my real touch flowers from Jdleggans . She was wonderful, responded to my messages with in a few hrs, and updated me with the process of my order. I ordered a bridesmaid bouquet, 2 hair flowers, 2 bouts, and a ladies corsage in all white roses with purple ribbon for $77 including shipping! The flowers are breath-taking, no one believes they're fake and they feel just like real flowers too.
I also ordered my garter for $7.00 including shipping from Birds of Paradise . She was a pleasure to work with and went out of her way to make it the perfect color for me. I received it less than a week after I ordered it.
I also recently ordered a custom hanger from Lilafrances with the words lucy (heart) emil. I am still waiting for it but I've seen pictures of many others she has done and they're great. This will be used for taking pictures of the dress. And then I will have it as a keepsake :)
