Love the Look: Making it Personal on Wedzu

As I make my way through the mountains of wedding content out there, I always circle back to the stuff that local crafters have dreamed up. There’s something especially sentimental and sadly lacking in this world today about person-to-person exchanges. Yes, with Etsy and this fabulously wedding-centric crafters’ site, Wedzu, you’re still buying something from someone over the Internet. But the principle of the matter is that the”thing” you’re buying was someone’s passion, someone’s vision. Someone spent hours creating and crafting each item posted to Wedzu, Etsy and the other great sites out there that connect artists with patrons of the arts. Maybe whatever you buy only has meaning by proxy, but it still has inherent meaning, nonetheless. I love looking through the items and thinking about the stories behind them. Weddings are about building meaning and sharing experiences, right? So why not extend that relationship to include the vendors that offer those special items for your special day? Please enjoy this glimpse into Wedzu and stay tuned for a new feature I’m starting, where I’ll be interviewing local Rochester arts-and-crafters on Etsy. Should be good!
