If you’re planning a rustic, vintage, or shabby chic wedding, this card box will fit the bill. It is made with wood and is distressed with white paint for that old, been-sitting-in-an-antique-shop look and has a piece of lace embellished on the front. Take a closer look:

One of our favorite parts of handmade weddings? The decor! There are so many creative twists on traditional items that we’ve been finding lately. We especially love when artists make keepsake-quality items you can use long after the wedding is over. For instance, this wedding card box suitcase over at PNZ Designs can be used to hold cards from guests, guest book notes, or pop open the suitcase and use it as a creative escort card display. The front is embellished with your monogram, etched in wood and stained to perfection. Love, love, love.

When it comes to getting the bride and groom to kiss, nothing is more adorable (and thematically fitting for a rustic, western themed wedding) than the ring for a kiss cowbell. When we spotted it and saw just how easy it was to DIY, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. If you are a bride who prefers a cowbell to clanking of wine glasses, you’re in luck with this feature! Read on to see what you need to make the must-have wedding decor for summer + fall rustic weddings (and how it’s made in under 5 minutes). Enjoy!
Here’s the inspiration…

If you’re looking for a guest book that is handmade, interactive, and will last forever in your home, look no further! We love this thumbprint tree guest book by The Ink Lab, spotted at a recent Real Wedding shown below (photos by the lovely Diana Daley). What we love most about this thumbprint guest book tree is how colorful it is: the couple chose to use multiple shades of ink for the thumbprints. (P.S. If you’re using ‘em, don’t forget these and a wastebasket.) It turned out beautifully! We’ve teamed up with the guest book tree’s designer, Heather, to offer a FREE thumbprint tree guest book to YOU, one of our lucky Emmaline Bride readers. Will it be you? Toss your name in the hat for a chance to win! (It’s #7 in our awesome 31 Wedding Giveaways series all August long!)

Haven’t you heard? Orange isn’t the new black, purple is! (Speaking of, I have yet to finish Season 2 of OITNB. What did you think of it, dear friends? Tweet at me.) There are so many incredible purple wedding ideas out there, inspired by scent (lavender), flowers (lilac or orchid), or particular themed designs (such as peacock). Purple pairs brilliantly with hot pink or lime green for a bold wedding, or grey for a sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. In today’s post, we’re sharing a round-up of fourteen stunning purple wedding ideas including a gorgeous pair of heels (+ your chance to win ‘em!), insanely pretty jewelry (all of which I added to my own wish list, thankyouverymuch), a purple wedding dress, and a purple wedding cake which seems too pretty to eat (but you know I’d eat it anyway ‘cos, duh, it’s still cake). Let’s get down to business, shall we?
