You’ll Never Guess Where Mila Kunis Bought Her $90 Wedding Ring

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are the chillest celebrity couple ever. Need more proof than this? Mila bought her and Ashton's wedding bands on Etsy for a grand total of $190. The actress was on Conan O'Brien's show when he noticed her playing with her wedding band and commented that it's "not showy." "I can't believe the fact I'm telling anyone this story," Kunis started. "So my husband and I got married... a little while ago, she told O'Brien. "Beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning. But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy. She wanted "the thinnest possible platinum band" and went to look at Tiffany & Co. "I was like, 'They’re how much? This is astronomical," she said. "So, I went on Etsy and I was like, '$90?' I was like, ‘Buy now!'... Ashton’s is $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive." I mean, could these two be any more #couplegoals?

How To Buy The Wedding Dress Of Your Dreams On Etsy

I've worked in the world of weddings for many years and it wasn't too long ago that experts actually warned against buying your wedding dress online? A purchase that important merited the full bridal boutique experience, they argued. Fast forward to 2016 and more and more brides are planning their entire wedding online! No site helps brides pull of the big day of their dreams quite like Etsy, which is why we couldn't pass up the opportunity to chat up Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy Trend Expert, to get the scoop on emerging wedding trends and her best advice for brides buying a gown online. SHEfinds: Etsy has so many great items for weddings--would you recommend brides consider Etsy for their wedding dress? Dayna Isom Johnson: With over 35 million unique items in the marketplace, Etsy allows shoppers to create a wedding that is completely their own. Shoppers can connect directly with sellers to personalize, customize, and/or add a special touch to many items, including their wedding dress. Brides can discover trends ranging from draped silhouettes and dropped shoulders to modern jumpsuits and every take on lace imaginable. There's truly something for every kind of bride on Etsy. SF: Are there any designers on Etsy you think brides should check out? DIJ: There are so many talented wedding designers on Etsy. Here are just a handful of sellers that create unique, customizable bridal wear: - Amanda Jennings of MinkMaidsCollection loves to design for the woman who doesn't see herself in the usual white wedding gown - she designs for the woman who wants to show her personality on her wedding day and is ok with stepping out of the box with color and pattern, rather than just wearing what everyone expects from a bride. - Rebecca Schoneveld creates original, unique bridal wear that is truly one-of-a-kind. No design is a duplicated! - Yanique Barnes of Dreamers and Lovers likes to think of herself as Cinderella's fairy godmother, ensuring that every woman receives a custom made dress that makes her feel beautiful, comfortable and confident on her special day. - Mother-daughter duo Lana and Kat, the sellers behind LankkaBridal, specialize in simple, timeless and affordable wedding dresses, which are fully customizable. SF: What are some of the top wedding gown trends you're seeing on Etsy? DIJ: This season is all about blush tones, and we’re seeing it as an emerging trend translating from wedding to decor to bridal fashion. We've also been taking note of floating embellishments, which is using materials like silk flowers, rhinestones and illusion lace to create a "floating" effect. Brides-to-be can also peruse our Editor's Picks pages, which are curated by Etsy Editors, to discover unique finds and emerging trends in bridal fashion. SF: What's the best advice you can give brides considering buying a wedding dress online? DIJ: Choosing a wedding dress is one of the most exhilarating choices a bride makes, and deciding on a custom gown can raise the stakes. Here are some key tips for brides considering purchasing a gown online: - Brides should take a peek inside their own closets to learn about what they already own that fits and flatters them, and what makes them feel pretty. - Everyday looks can be a great touchstone for finding a wedding dress. The gown shouldn’t look like a costume--it should be an extra-special version of the bride. - Good communication leads to the winning dress, so there should be an open dialogue between designer and client, especially when designing a custom gown. - The key ingredient for purchasing a wedding dress online is to take the right measurements. If the bride can’t or doesn’t want to go to a professional for measurements, they should be sure to ask their designer for a measurement guide and have a trusted friend to help them. - Adding custom details to your pre-owned dress, like vintage lace, silk flowers, hand beading, or adding buttons down the back, can really set a dress apart without too much time and expense. Adding or changing straps is another simple alteration that can contribute a lot of custom flair. - In the end, it's really all about the fit. No matter what your budget, it’s really worth it to invest in a dress that matches your measurements. A dress that fits you beautifully will always look dynamite. SF: How can brides ensure they are getting a quality wedding gown when buying online versus in a bridal boutique? DIJ: Etsy provides a variety of tools to help shoppers verify that a seller is reputable. Buyers can use Etsy's five-star review system to review feedback and check out purchase images from other customers. Also, the best part about Etsy is that shoppers can connect directly with sellers at any time by using Etsy conversations ("convos"), so brides should be sure to reach out to their designers to ask questions or clarify any points of confusion. SF: There are a ton of sellers on Etsy - what's your best advice for sorting through all options? DIJ: With over 1.6 million active shops, Etsy helps shoppers find one-of-a-kind products, and these tips can help brides navigate the marketplace, and discover bridalwear amongst all of the unique options: - Brides should start by searching something they know they like. A search for "lace," then filtered by category such as Wedding Dresses, will narrow a search down. - When planning for your wedding, it's especially important to keep organized by adding all the dresses you like to a Favorites list. To add something to your Favorites List, just click the heart-shaped Favorite button then select Add To for a menu of lists you’ve created. - Etsy's Wedding Dress Guide is a great resource to help pinpoint and shape a definition around a bride's unique style--be it by silhouette, color, trend or mood. The guide acts as a jumping off point into ideas with added shopping tips, letting brides pick up the lead from there. - Can't settle on a single style with all of the exciting options? Why decide! We're seeing brides plan multiple looks for the big day, allowing more flexibility and fun. - Sign up for Etsy Weddings email blast to stay on top of all of the emerging trends and curated unique items from Etsy's editors. SF: A wedding gown isn't complete without accessories--what are some great accessories trends/shops on Etsy? DIJ: Accessories are a great way to help define style through finishing touches. In addition to seeing trends in blush tones, metallics and floating embellishments, we're taking note of brides choosing unique accessory alternatives like boho-style headpieces, unconventional earrings, and Juliet-style cap veils are making new wave. Brides can also check out Etsy's Bridal Accessories Guide to source inspiration and discover new trends in wedding accessories.

The Etsy Wedding Awards: 12 Shops Every Bride-To-Be Should Bookmark Now

Etsy is a bride’s paradise. From stationery and decorations to favors and lighting, there is nothing you can't find on this amazing site. With so many vendors to choose from, you'll want to make sure you're giving your business to the right shop, so take a look at these tips to make shopping on Etsy stress-free. And then click through the slideshow to check out some of our favorite Etsy shops to help you get your shopping started. Ask lots of questions. If you have any concerns of this shop being legitimate always send a message, ask a few questions about the product, says Phallin Marie, the owner/creator of Four Sisters Farm Soap Co. "Ask when the ship date will be (custom items can require longer ship dates). A truly upstanding Etsy shop will respond to your messages within 24 hours--unless there is an emergency.” Look over the listing carefully. "The most important thing a bride-to-be can do when ordering Etsy items for a wedding is to read the entire Etsy listing and provide a date by which the piece is needed when placing an order," says Jean Kake of Quilted Cupcake. "Especially during the wedding seasons, some shops have longer lead times than a bride may expect." Read reviews. Each seller has reviews once you click on the product. Skim those reviews, paying particular attention to any negative reviews, says Michele Velazquez, owner of The Wedding Bomb, a pop-up wedding company. "If people are saying the product looks better in photos or shipping was delayed, run!" Check out the location. Shipping from another country can seriously slow things down and more importantly, items could be held at customs. Try to order in the country you reside in if possible. Pay attention to the materials. The materials are usually featured in Etsy tags if not in the listing text itself –knowing this will help ensure all of your products, even from various vendors, coordinate (all one fabric type, all one ribbon, all one paper finish, etc.), says Kate Ziegler of Union Jack Creative. Order in advance. Cut down on pre-wedding stress by having everything ordered at least three months before the big day, says Kendra Barnes, owner of CUTEnCRAFTY Shop. "You will feel prepared and organized and this leaves a little wiggle room for delayed shipping, lost packages, etc." Protect yourself. If you pay with a credit card or Paypal, you are protected if anything goes wrong. I don't recommend mailing a payment, recommends Angie Barrett, owner of Angie's Suds 'N Such. [Photo: Etsy]

Beyonce Might Be Suing Etsy Over Those ‘Feyonce’ Mugs

We Crashed An Etsy Seller’s Jewelry Studio And Yes, It Was As Amazing As It Sounds

We're diehard Etsy fans here at SHEfinds, mostly because the jewelry selection is unbeatable. Of course, that's due in large part to the thousands of sellers who find and make gorgeous products the rest of us can't resist. But rather than simply be content ordering jewelry up the wazoo, we decided to go behind the scenes a little and actually meet one of these highly talented Etsy sellers. I was actually introduced to Soledad Proaño of Sol Del Sur at an event here in NYC and as soon as I saw her stuff, I knew I wanted to learn more. So I enlisted the SHEfinds graphic designer/resident photographer to trek it to Brooklyn with me where we got up close and personal with Sol's amazing pieces and how they come to life. Take a peek: A few of Sol's latest pieces on display in her Brooklyn studio. SHEfinds: What were you doing before you started selling on Etsy? Soledad Proaño: I was an acoustical engineer. I studied audio and acoustics, but ended up focusing on architectural designs to create spaces that had good sound quality. We basically came up with treatments and materials to make texture in spaces. It was the best job I could have had with my education, but it wasn't enough for me. I really wanted to make creative decisions. Sol wearing some of her favorite pieces. SF: So you decided to start selling on Etsy? SP: I think it was probably 2008. I started selling mosaics, but they were very time-consuming. So I started making scarves with all these amazing yarns, but then summer cam so I had to diversify. Probably a year after I joined Etsy, I started doing jewelry. Works in progress. SF: Do you have any formal training? How long have you been making jewelry? SP: I started when I was 10, off and on making friendship bracelets. Later I learned some wire-grapping and metal- and leather- work. I love all kinds of processes, though. That's my thing--to figure out how things are made. SF: What made you decide to try your hand at jewelry? SP: At craft shows I would see people doing jewelry and it was selling and selling and I said, "I can do that!" Where the magic happens. SF: How do customers find you? SP: I have repeat customers, but most of my customers are new and honestly, I don't know where they come from. Sometimes I will get referrals or when I do an event I will get a lot of traffic right after. The early stages of some new Sol Del Sur cuff bracelets. SF: How does it feel to work for yourself? SP: It has its pros and cons. Sometimes I do miss the security and teamwork of working for a company. It's sometimes lonely and hard to connect with other creative people. But, of course, it's also nice to have my own ideas about how things should be made and execute them that way. Sol's favorite necklace. SF: Do you have a favorite piece? SP: It's always the newest. Click through the slideshow to shop our favorite Sol Del Sur pieces, then head over to Etsy to shop Soledad's collection yousrself. Don't miss these stunning unique engagement rings, black moto jackets for fall and quilted shoes. [Photo: Shelby Rodriguez]
