Hi, lovelies! Emma here. I’m a huge fan of handmade jewelry on Etsy. I believe handmade personalized jewelry gifts make the best kind of gifts for bridesmaids. Each piece is custom-made just for her, fun to wear, unique, and take up very little storage space (can you tell I’ve been Marie Kondo-ing again?!) I’ve been eyeing up the Etsy Holiday Gift Guide and it’s chock-full of inspiring gift ideas. We’ve picked some of our favorites and then added other pieces we love and created this fantastic bridesmaids jewelry gifts guide (or anyone on your gift list!) just in time for holiday delivery. Ready to see which jewelry pieces made the cut? On to the list! Enjoy!

When deciding on decorations for your wedding reception, punches of color in unexpected places can really tie your color palette together. For instance, around your cake table, draped in front of your head table, or displayed behind your card table are three places where couples frequently forget to decorate. One of the easiest ways to add a punch of color or personalization is with garland; and if you want to really make it pop, use colorful tassel garland in your wedding colors! We love using tassel garland for weddings, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties. Tassel garland is an easy way to decorate a small space with big impact. I also love to use tassel garland as a chair decoration for the bride at her bridal shower. You can find delightfully designed tassel garland for weddings at Ellenor Shop and we’re sharing our faves with you today! Loralie, designer and owner, is giving away a free tassel garland (or fringe garland — winner’s choice!) in any color combination! Read on to find out more…

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. This season, I’ve been a little more obsessed with Christmas cards than usual. With two sweet kiddos and matching Christmas pajamas and a camera at an arm’s length, I’ve been chasing after them taking photos to put on our card. And so far, I think I’ve got the perfect one! (I’ll be sharing on our Instagram once it’s ready!) Our two-year-old, Andrew, and six-month old, Benjamin, are BFFs already and I want to capture their sweet cookie-making and Christmas-tree-decorating moments onto a keepsake card to send to family and friends. I like to think of Christmas cards as a miniature time capsule, easily kept in a family album for years to come. So I know exactly how you must feel as a newlywed (or newly engaged couple) picking out your favorite snapshot to capture this special moment in time. And you want to share this moment with your loved ones on a beautiful high-quality card, like I do. And that’s why I love Minted! We talked about the best newlywed gifts from Minted recently; today we’re back to share our favorite holiday cards for newlyweds (or newly engaged couples)…

Hi, loves! Emma here and if you’re worried about how safe it is to buy wedding dresses online, you’re not alone! Today’s bride wants instantaneous results. You don’t have time to run from shop to shop; you want to see everything right at your fingertips — and I totally get it. It’s amazing how easy it is to buy anything online. This is coming from the girl who orders this in bulk online (and I’m not even embarrassed to admit it because it is so convenient). I buy amazing socks like these that I can wear all winter long because it keeps your legs warm! (They’re brilliant.) I stock up on k-cups so I don’t ever have a coffee outage.

Buying things for your wedding is the same way. I talked to a couple who recently got married and it was incredible the number of things they bought online, sight-unseen. Almost everything was ordered online, from the table runners to the votive candles to these invitations. Even the bridesmaid dresses were ordered online! Things like digital proofs, super-helpful product reviews, and two-day shipping have made buying wedding things online super convenient, so why should wedding dresses be excluded from the list? With resources at your fingertips like The Marketplace filled to the brim with handmade dresses and accessories, along with sellers on Etsy and Amazon unveiling new collections all the time, it’s easier than ever to buy everything for your wedding online…

Oh, how I adore barn wedding receptions! Emma here and barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of a rustic outdoor wedding with a little extra comfort for guests. It also offers less stress for the bride, since weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet; inside a barn reception, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath an illuminated starry night sky. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings have been trending for quite awhile now and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn reception ideas for weddings to get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it! Enjoy!
