Last week, we hosted our first Etsy Weddings event in New York City. Thank you to everyone who attended, and a special thank you to all of the sellers who graciously let us borrow merchandise!

Over three days, Etsy wedding sellers wowed the socks (and stockings) off of more than 1,000 brides-and-grooms-to-be, wedding planners, friends, family and industry press. As one attendee put it, “A wedding program finally designed for ME!”

One of our goals with this event was to bring new shoppers to Etsy’s already thriving weddings category, and To Have & To Hold was the perfect place to check out the breadth of weddings items available from sellers around the world.

Of course, we were also there to promote and publicize the launch of the new Etsy Weddings and Registry, so the event wouldn’t have been complete without a section focused on your new life together as a couple. We even had a station where you could register on the spot!

It was a dream come true to see the wonderland that is Etsy Weddings come to life in person. On all counts, it turned out great, and we couldn’t have done it without you (and you, and you, and you). Thanks again for being a part of it.
