I love going to Etsy when I need something unique, personal, and trendy. In fact, I use Etsy's top trends all the time to get the 4-1-1 on what's really in.

It definitely takes some of the stress off of you as you're trying to make yours a ceremony to remember.

Even if you are not the one who's getting married this year, but just taking your duties as bridesmaid seriously, you'll fall head-over-heels in love with many of these items. Who knows, you might see something that you want to say, "I do" to.

1. Make A Statement With Your Sleeves

You want to stand out on your big day with a dress that has everyone in awe. This year, Etsy wants you to take center stage with a dress that has statement sleeves. Gorgeous long sleeves are perfect for a boho bride who wants to flow down the aisle in something like a silk chiffon kaftan or something in white vintage lace.

2. Rethink Your Headpiece With A Veil Alternative

Veils are a go-to wedding tradition, but you might be looking for something different for your headwear. Instead of a veil to top off the look, go with an alternative like a silk bow or a tulle turban headband. If you're a truly non-traditional bride, you might want to try a classic felt fedora to take it up a notch — in ivory, of course.

3. Throw It Back With A Hint Of '90s Style

With velvet scrunchies and oversized overalls, you may have noticed that the '90s are back. The nostalgia is real, and I am so here for it.

If you're also living in a '90s world, you'll adore these throwback trends for your own ceremony. Instead of butterfly clips in your hair, you can have a butterfly crown, and you'll be dancing to Madonna all night long with your tulle polka dot cape on.

4. Make It Eco-Friendly With Sustainable Decor

If you want to have an eco-friendly wedding, you'll love Etsy's sustainable decorations. Not only are these decorations gorgeous, but you'll feel better knowing that you're making a positive impact on the planet.

Instead of having your guests use plastic all night, get some reusable glass straws that they can sip away on. Then, when you're ready to send out thank you cards, send out seed paper ones that can be used to grow beautiful wildflowers.

5. Switch Up The Look With Unexpected Textures

When you think of wedding textures, you may normally think of silk and lace. However, in 2019, it's time to switch it up with some unexpected textures.

You and bae can sport leather with a leather bow tie and leather bouquet wrap for your flowers. There are even origami bow ties that will look adorable on all of the groomsmen, or even your pup if he's joining in on the ceremony.

6. Share Secret Messages Just For You And Your SO

As exciting as wedding planning can be, the most important part is standing next to your fiancé and saying, "I do." You love each other so much, and want to do something special like sending secret messages on your big day. You can get your bae something to wear with a hidden love note inside like an embroidered tie or tie bar clip.

7. Have Unconventional Seating Charts

Seating charts help your guests know where to sit at the reception. Etsy is here to help you have an extra special wedding with unconventional seating charts. For the couple with wanderlust, you might love these vintage luggage tags or plant escort cards for an outdoor reception.

8. Give Your Guests Something Functional

You may have been going back and forth on what to get your guests as a wedding favor. You could go with the traditional bags of candy and nuts or something floral, but 2019 is all about functional favors. Send your guests home with something they'll actually use like leather luggage tags or stamped soap with your initials on it.
