What is cottagecore?
It’s a cold winter day here in Kentucky, and what better way to spend it than dreaming about pretty weddings? Cottagecore is one of my favorite aesthetics. It always has been, even before it was called that. I think it’s a very common thing to love, incorporating design elements from pretty English cottages, farms, and nature. If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s pretty simple to explain. It’s made of anything from a romanticized view of agricultural, and simple lifestyles. In this post, I’ve collected some of my favorite items from Etsy in a shopping guide to help you put together the cottagecore wedding of your dreams.
These sweet mushroom vases are from CoolaBoola Co, and would make the perfect table decoration, especially for a head table. The pretty stained glass ring dish could easily be used to carry your rings on, and then could live beside your bed to hold them when you aren’t wearing them. Waen’s entire Etsy shop is really a cottagecore dream come true.
These pretty dresses from Son de Flor are a less traditional, but perfect option for a wedding dress. If it isn’t your style as the star of your show, they would also make adorable bridesmaids dresses, and as a bonus are very re-wearable. Son de Flor is one of my favorite cottagecore makers out there, and I own several of their items myself. They are always great quality, and so comfy.
