While fall weddings are still in full swing, engagement season – also known as the holidays – are fast approaching. On Etsy, searches for engagement rings start spiking in October, and according to Wedding Wire, Christmas Day is the most popular day of the year to pop the question.

As couples move away from cookie-cutter weddings Etsy sellers are creating the most unique finds, making the journey to the aisle just as special as the relationship. And, for an even more unique celebration, partners can personalize every aspect of their big day by working directly with sellers to create the wedding of their dreams.

THE RING

With the average ring cost netting out at $5,000 shoppers can find options on Etsy that won’t break the bank, from budget-friendly diamonds to the increasingly-popular gemstone alternatives.

THE PLANNING

Every couple knows that organization is key when planning a wedding, and using books and binders is one of the most valuable ways to stay on track.
