To Have & To Hold: A Weddings Event handmade and vintage goods


The story of your love is anything but generic — so why settle for a wedding that falls short? Plan a celebration that’s personal and meaningful with the help of Etsy’s creative community.

Join us in New York City on Saturday, April 28 for To Have & To Hold, our first Etsy-hosted and produced weddings event, featuring one-of-a-kind items and inspiration for brides and grooms, wedding parties, family and friends.

To Have & To Hold will showcase a wide variety of Etsy vendors, bringing ceremony and celebration styles to life with Etsy items that are made or selected with love. An Etsy wedding is not about how much you spend, but how you spend it, and the independent, creative businesses you’re supporting along the way.

If you’re planning a wedding or in the wedding-planning business, find pieces that work for your personality and budget, including bridal dresses, groomswear, wedding party attire, accessories, decor and paper goods. If your heart’s desire is a custom-made dress, an antique ring, a hand-cut paper banner, or a carved cake-topper, this is the place to find talented and trusted vendors who can help you express your impeccable style. Leave with a list of vendors you can visit on and a guide to finding more items made for you in our marketplace.

We hope we can share in your nuptial glow. See you there!

    Thank you everyone for your kind words! To answer a few questions: You can register for tickets here: The vendor list for many of our hosted events is hand-selected by Etsy Admin who consider seasonal, cultural and lifestyle trends that fit within our theme. As always, the team looks for ingenuity, well-made items, interesting descriptions, and top-notch photos. Limited space and time at our events means we can't include everyone, every time, but we always make sure we are highlighting a range of sellers across categories, regions and price points.
