As part of our devotion to giving our clients (and future clients) the best information and recommendations possible, we’ve decided to start a new feature called “Vendor Highlights”. During these posts, we will pick a vendor we have worked with in some capacity, introduce you to the company, post pictures of their work and give you an overall idea of why we love them! If you have a category you’d like to see, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll find a vendor in our files to show off
First up is Itty Bitty Wood Shoppe! http://www.ittybittywoodshoppe.etsy.com/
Itty Bitty Wood Shoppe is an Etsy shop owned by a husband and wife team, Mike and Kathy. The super artistic couple make custom wedding cake toppers out of wood (they also do other custom vintage looking wedding items in a sister shop jmeraki.etsy.com). Mike and Kathy are based in Texas, but can ship anywhere in the country. You actually got a sneak peek of them in our first post, Nikki and Zack’s own wedding with their Han Solo and Leia cake topper:
It was so easy to get! We stumbled upon them on Etsy one day, after getting a crazy idea for this Star Wars cake topper. They immediately answered my email, and I had the topper within 2 weeks. It even came with an adorable little thank you note! Everyone raved about our cake toppers, and after the wedding tons of pictures popped up on Facebook with comments about how cute and creative they were. Now they reside on a shelf in our dining room, with our other personalized wedding paraphernalia. Definitely a memorable touch to our wedding, and well worth the money.
Speaking of money, their prices are super reasonable for something so lovingly made, and something you can reuse or just display in your home after the wedding
What we really loved about working with the Itty Bitty Wood Shoppe was the way they made us feel so important. Every details was discussed, we never felt like we were bothering them or asking too much, and they worked quickly to get our toppers to us ASAP. Definitely qualities you want in people who are working for your wedding.
They have popular ideas, which you can customize to reflect yourselves as a couple like:
Sports (or College) Teams:
Super Heroes (we have another bride this will be perfect for!):
or even the whole family in wooden form:
You can visit them on Etsy at the above link, or visit their FB page for more photos and price quotes.
We hope this has been helpful, and can’t wait to explore our next vendor. We will be shooting for at least one vendor a week, possibly two, so keep checking back to see, or follow us on Twitter @SEEventsFL
