Planning a wedding is an opportunity to let your creativity shine. It’s also the perfect moment to meld tradition with something new and fresh. As part of Etsy’s Merch team, I love observing how Etsy shops put their own spin on the traditional elements of the big day — dress, ring, bouquet. From rose gold bands to two-piece wedding gowns, here are a few inspiring trends we’re starting to notice in the Etsy marketplace.

The Two-Piece Crop 

This two-piece style is a fresh take on tailored classics, providing an element of surprise and sophistication. The best part? Interchangeable pieces make for simple style changes between ceremony and reception.

Glittering Hair Embellishments

Show your bling with a rhinestone headpiece, fascinator or crown. Sparkling hair embellishments are quickly replacing traditional veils and add a touch of glam from ceremony to the end of the party.

Backless and Cut-Outs

Flattering low backs and elegant cutout designs provide added interest throughout the ceremony (when, let’s face it, guests focus most on your back) and the evening dance party.

Blush and Rose Gold

Blush tones and glimmering rose golds are easily this season’s hottest wedding trend. From engagement rings and bands, to dresses and hair accessories, this warm jewel tone brings an instant sense of romance to each element it graces.

Eclectic Bridesmaid Dresses

A synchronized bridal party is a thing of the past. Go for the mismatch and give your friends the freedom to choose their favorite style or pattern (and the joy of actually wearing the dress again later). The key to this perfectly-imperfect style is finding a detail that unifies the look, such as the dress cut, material or color palette. Whatever your preference, this eclectic new take on the wedding party is one we can all get behind.
