Organize Your Wedding Ideas with Etsy Treasuries
Are you someone who likes to plan ahead? Or maybe keep a visual image nearby? Treasuries are a great way to keep your favorite ideas organized in a nice little photo gallery. You can create multiple treasuries for wedding cakes, cake toppers, fascinators, garters, dresses, shoes, rings, bouquets, etc. That list could go on forever.
You can even find fun ways to enhance your treasury (and shopping) fun with applications like http://enhantsy.com. Enhantsy allows you to zoom in on images directly from the search page (you no longer have to click on an image, be redirected to another page, decide you don’t like it, and have to click the back button to get to your search again). You can add items directly to your treasury (or cart) from the image on your search. Plus you also get infinite scroll on your searches.
Here is a treasury that I created for my favorite garters:
Treasuries are easy to create and beautiful to look at. This is how I create them:
Open a blank ‘Create a treasury’ page: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/new
Open a new window on Etsy and search for desired items:
When you see something you love, or that fits your theme (many artists will customize items) click on the heart in the upper left corner.
Go to your favorites: Click on your name at the top of the page, and then click on ‘favorites’ listed on the left side of the page. Right click on each item to ‘copy the image URL’ and then open the treasury page, right click again to paste that URL info in the box.
Rearrange as you like and save.
There you have it; 5 easy steps to creating a gorgeous treasury collection of your favorite items.
Here are some of my favorite items from the WedEclectic team:
Here is one I created for my bridal bouquet memorial charms:
