If we've learned anything here at Brides, it's that bridal showers and bachelorette parties can lean a little towards the—dare we say—tacky side? We know you want your wedding day to be as unique as you are as a couple, so why should the surrounding parties be any different? You don't need the same ol' penis straws at your bachelorette that everyone else has, so why should you have the same boring stuff that everyone else has at their bridal shower?
Don't get us wrong, girly stuff (hello, pastels) can be beautiful/feminine/cool, but for a shower it seems a little too on the nose. What you need is a little funkiness—some fun stuff that not only gets your spirits up, but gets your ladies excited too! Products worthy of all the Instagrams in the world, content fodder that your 'maids will be posting for weeks to come because they just can't get enough. We hear you! And clearly, we feel the same way. That's why we headed over to Etsy to see what was cooking this week—and found some very cool-girl worth stuff. No ribbon bouquet here!
