I very much believe that, when you can, you should buy handmade. Not only are you getting an item which is (at times) completely custom but you are also supporting an Artist (and their art) and usually getting a better deal over factory-made items (which is always a plus!).
There are so many talented Artists and Designers over on Etsy. When looking through the wedding category, I am stunned by the amount of talent and beautiful items that are being sold. Any idea you have ever had for your wedding, chances are there is someone who can make it for you on Etsy. Just about anything in a Seller’s shop can be altered to fit your wedding. Mr. Knight and I had some pretty awesome custom Gator cake toppers made through Etsy. My bridal consultant Kari had her Groom’s cake toppers custom made through Etsy too. So, without further adieu, here is a small taste of items available on Etsy to outfit your Groom on your Wedding day ↓

Sometimes we are so concerned with what we (as brides) are wearing that we forget how important the groom’s attire is in relation to the bride. It is important to remember that the groom’s attire is JUST as important as the bride’s. I know… you all are say “What are you thinking Miss Gator? The bride is the most important!” Well, it is important the groom and bride compliment each other. You can really make a bold statement with the groom’s attire, which often makes for some pretty SWEET pictures. Check out below↓
My little heart skips a beat every time I see this beautiful wedding. I just love the look!
