Registry Must-Haves from Target: #4 – KitchenAid

It’s week four in our registry collaboration with Target! And this week, we’re focusing on a favorite registry item for many brides-to-be: a stand mixer! We’re sharing a gorgeous KitchenAid mixer in an ice blue color and a few of our favorite attachments to go along with it. Are you registering for a mixer, and if so, what’s your favorite attachment? The ice cream maker attachment looks like a good idea to me! We’ve also found a citrus juicer attachment for freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast, a food processor attachment, and a ravioli maker attachment.

Wood Letter Wedding Decoration & Felt Flowers

I never thought I could love felt flowers almost as much as the real deal. But awhile ago when we talked about these felt wedding ideas and I couldn’t believe how beautiful felt could really be. And with further digging, I spotted this wood letter wedding decoration over at The Felt Flower Shop and now I just adore all things felt. Take a look and I think you’ll see what I mean! (Oh, and this can be re-used after the wedding as home decor!) The ampersand is cute, too.

Black and White Wedding Color Board (+ Giveaway!)

Last week when we shared our coral and mint inspiration board, we never thought we’d receive so many requests for other custom color palettes in our Ask Emmaline inbox! We are excited to help with color palette inspiration and we promise to get to all of your requests! (Want yours added to the mix? Send us your colors here!)

First up — a black and white wedding colors board, a special request from bride-to-be, Terese. Her email tells us that she’s hoping for a “classic, traditional look” but with “modern touches” and “a bit of gold or silver metallic“. To round out this look, we’ve found invitations, table linens, a flower girl dress, ring dishes, cake, rings, and more! PLUS, to make this post even sweeter, we’ve teamed up with the awesome Tori of bag shop Toriska for a new giveaway! One lucky bride-to-be will win a black, silver, and gold sequin clutch purse. Good luck!

Bridesmaid Bangle Bracelets for a *Foolproof* Gift

Hi, loves! Emma here. I love all kinds of jewelry especially when I can mix and match pieces to create a unique look. When I stumbled upon these bangle bracelets by Sweet Auburn Studio, I immediately loved the idea as a custom bridesmaid gift. Instead of a one-size-fits-all gift, you can create your own pairing to suit her personality and style.
