Couples can not only find a wide variety of handmade and vintage items on Etsy but can also create a registry for personalized pieces and provide specific customization options for their guests.
By doing so, they can receive unique and meaningful gifts from their loved ones while simultaneously supporting independent makers worldwide who sell on Etsy’s marketplace.
The Etsy Wedding Registry is a new avenue for the company to engage with both existing and new customers. With the unofficial wedding season upon us, it offers an array of affordable options for guests who want to give distinctive gifts while being mindful of their budget.
Over the past three months, searches for handmade gifts on Etsy have skyrocketed by an impressive 872%. This surge is attributed to modern couples who are breaking away from conventional wedding gifting practices and opting for personalized experiences that align with their individual stories and tastes.
Furthermore, Etsy has been enhancing its search algorithms to improve search results and has reported a modest increase in active buyers during the first quarter of 2023, marking it the first such increase in over a year.
Etsy Wedding Registry and Trends Report
To kick off the new Etsy Wedding Registry, the company collaborated with TV personality Antoni Porowski and his fiancé Kevin Harrington to curate their ultimate wedding gift registry, featuring their preferred wishlist items sourced directly from creators globally.
“One of the best parts about registering with Etsy is that you can choose custom, personalized gifts that never feel cookie cutter,” shares Antoni Porowski. “We had a lot of fun curating a list of one-of-a-kind pieces and mementos to take into this new chapter of our life together.”
And the launch of the Etsy Registry also brings the release of its 2023 Wedding Trends guide, which showcases how couples are prioritizing enjoyment and creativity by putting fun spins on traditional elements of weddings.
This year, expect to see themed dress codes, intricate programs, unconventional bridal ensembles, and unique wedding bands as couples tie the knot in extraordinary ways.
