Do It Yourself: Crafty Women
Check out these locals selling their wedding wares on Etsy.com
Beach Cottage Studio
Imagine butterflies and flowers taking over your reception. Coosaw Creek designer Kristine Brockmann makes such fanciful scenes possible with her custom-paper creations.
The Rose Knot
Designer and seamstress Heather Koonse specializes in recycling fabrics and notions to offer eye-catching vintage-meets-modern looks based on each bride’s cravings.
The Blooming South & Grace Dunbar
We can’t decide which of Kim Morgan’s online stores we like best! Both feature her delicate and feminine hand-cut fabric flowers—accenting the ring bearer’s pillows and flower girl’s baskets, as well as haircombs and dress sashes.
Paper goods in bright hues with floral accents and funky fonts tied together with a retro twist mark the work of West Ashley native Sarah Early. The ideal shop for clever, pop-art inspired brides, Dodeline has charming template invites, wedding announcements, and thank-you notes, as well as custom suites.
Scotti Cline Design
Mount Pleasant’s Scotti Cline developed her classically traditional style—think elegantly scripted fonts paired with iconic Charleston details like live oaks, gas lanterns, and magnolia blooms—while studying at the College of Charleston.
Lovely Little Cake Stands
Nashville native Olivia Rae James is known for her blog “everyday musings,” an ode to the Lowcountry with photos of the good life here. But wedding folk are wise to check out her Etsy shop, Lovely Little Cake Stands, where she marries charming vintage china plates to crystal candlesticks, perfect for dessert bars and great for newlywed homes long after Big Days.
