Wedding Toppers from The Small Object
I love these super-customized wedding toppers by Sarah Neuberger of The Small Object. She works with couples to choose all the things that are special to them (like their pets, or a fancy dress detail, or a superhero theme?) and creates these tiny, amazing pieces. Check out hundreds of photos of her commissions in her Wedding Toppers flickr set. The basic toppers start at $135, with some customizations extra.
Sarah says, “I started making wedding toppers about a year ago thanks to customer requests and, I think in some small part, due to my deep love for old autograph verses. It’s my version of “Yours til Niagara Falls” and “2 good 2 be 4 got 10.” It’s a remarkable honor to make something to mark the moment when you and me said it’s us forever. I love that.”
Prost to the Host Tissue Poms
I first saw these gorgeous 3D tissue poms made by Prost to the Host at this spring’s Crafty Wonderland sale, and picked up a set of them for my daughter’s birthday party, in her favorite colors! These would be beautiful wedding or shower decorations, and they’re 100% recyclable after the party, too.
You can buy a set of 3 poms for $13, or pick up a set of 10, in the colors of your choice, for $30 in their Etsy shop.
Etched Glasses by Bread and Badger
Custom etched pint glasses (or champagne flutes!) would be an awesome wedding present, and Amanda Siska of Bread and Badger says her etched glasses have been especially popular as groomsmen’s gifts. You can choose from her in-house designs or set up a new one with your own artwork and text… whether it’s zombies, robots, your favorite video game, or your wedding date, these glasses will mark the occasion in style.
Get ideas from Amanda’s flickr set of past custom work, or contact her about a new design (prices vary depending on the details). Pint glasses start at $15.
Sterling Silver Wedding (or Engagement) Rings
When my husband and I got engaged six years ago, we got custom-stamped silver rings made with each other’s names on them. I loved wearing my engagement ring, and we still keep them together on a little ring pillow now that we’ve traded them in for wedding bands. The designer we worked with isn’t making them any more, but I found some on Etsy that are great (and affordable!). These 3mm-wide stackable bands by beadedfashions are just $14 each, and can be customized with small typewriter names or dates.
And these 4mm rings are $16 each, with more font and design choices on the wider band.
