Wedzu: A Marketplace for Indie and Handmade Weddings

dirty laudry guest book kit

I love Etsy but let’s face it, it is so huge now that it could be time-consuming to find what you are looking for.  This is why we see an emergence of curated marketplaces. The latest addition is Wedzu, a marketplace for indie and handmade weddings. Some items would add fun to a baby shower, a birthday party or a club reunion.

I picked some of my favorite handmade items to make your party more memorable.

Photo Props

Photo shoots require props. The mustache and lips photo shoot has become a trend. The sexy red lips and bold English handlebar mustaches are available in sets of 2 or sets of 5. I featured before vintage silverware recycled as garden and herbs markers. Monkeys Always Look transformed them into wedding photo props. It comes in a set of 3 spoons with the words: I Love You, XOXO and Kiss Me.

Favor Boxes

Each cake favor box is tied by a pretty ribbon on the side. I also like it for baby and bridal showers.

please deliver to stamp

If you ship your invite in a box, you might like to get one of these Please Deliver To Wooden Stamp to print on your shipping labels.

Funny Guest Book

The Dirty Laundry Guest Book Kit provides a creative twist. Guests can write their funny stories or wishes on note cards cut as t-shirts, tank tops, pants and skirts. The kit includes mini wooden clothespins, clothesline and a coordinating label that encourages guest’s to write notes to affix on a detergent bottle.

  1. Wow! Thanks for this! As the owner of BabyLuxe, a Montreal-based company which sells baby gift items, I am always looking for resources to build unique gifts. I will definitely check out Wedzu!

  2. I agree with you, it takes forever to find something on Etsy. Just spent a good amount yesterday :I
