Thursday June 11 2015.


The Bijou team went home very inspired after enjoying a fun-filled evening of flower crafting, G&T’s and some of Etsy’s freshest wedding suppliers. We attended the Etsy Wedding Fair to scout out talented individuals with new ideas and innovative designs to share with you Bijou Brides. And we definitely found that!  The room was FULL of beautifully designed stationery, cake toppers, wedding dresses, shoes, jewellery & much more. Each and every one of the products had been handcrafted and we got talking to a few of the designers behind them…
