I was browsing through Etsy.com to see what wedding items had recently been posted from makers here in Oregon (I know, I am a dork), and I saw quite a few great items for the groom! Imagine that, Etsy for the groom. In my mind, Etsy was a place only ladies shopped. Maybe I am wrong, or maybe makers are targeting brides shopping for the groom. Who knows, but I was so astounded I had to share a few of my findings with you. I love these uniquely Portland wedding items. I think couples who can incorporate their own uniqueness as well as the uniqueness of where they live (or are getting married) will be very happy with the wedding they have hosted.
Etsy Items Made In Portland: Just For The Groom
I think these cufflinks for the groom are really cool. These are vintage Portland transit tokens converted into cufflinks. You can wear a little piece of Portland on your wedding day. These are made in Portland, Oregon, by Findstotreasure on Etsy. The price is 24.99 plus shipping. They have all sorts of other great cufflinks for the groom if these don’t fit your style.
From the maker, “The perfect wedding themed must have! Get it for a child, grandchild, or friend and watch everyone smile and laugh when they see it. The item is great for wedding receptions, bachelor and bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and grooms cakes.
The item includes: Bride and Groom, Jersey, rally towel, #1 foam, basketball cutout, and two replica tickets. The item fits easily on 9″ round cake or larger. The item consists of individual pieces which can be placed in numerous positions on cake to fit your needs.”
Available for $45.00 from Finsnhorns on Etsy.
I have seen so many tacky, ugly wedding bands for men. This is stylish, simple, and classic. I love it and would totally get a matching one for myself!
The maker, RavensRefuge says this about it, “With angular and pointed facets, our arrowhead hammering style provides a unique alternative to the hammered band with traditional dimples. (We have other hammering styles available in our shop, as well, in the “wedding bands” section.) Crafted from hand-milled stock that is 5mm wide and 2mm thick, the band is finished with rounded inner edges for a comfortable fit.
Your band will be made entirely by hand. Dan will hand-roll an ingot of gold that he has alloyed in his shop. And because the metal is cold worked, hand forged bands like this one are denser and stronger than bands that are cast.”
I love that. Dan will make the wedding band (rhyme intended). This sophisticated wedding band is only $772.00 on Etsy.
Last but definitely not least, for the groom or the groomsmen; handmade mustache wax for the big wedding day! This is pocket size and easy to carry around. Even just to be silly, this is a great gift at only $5.oo. The maker, Paul Branham, says this,”The Standard wax is more for the fella who wants gentle grooming and shape without the fierce hold.” Enough said.
