Hi, lovely brides-to-be! How was your Thanksgiving? We popped in earlier today to tell you about these awesome rustic wedding invitations with burlap and we’re back to share some more handmade wedding inspiration. But first, did you venture out to the malls or stores for Black Friday today? I’ll admit, last night I enjoyed so much delicious home-made food that I went home, watched tv with A, and fell asleep. This morning, though, we did make it out to do a little shopping. If you haven’t made up your mind yet about shopping this weekend, I encourage you to support Small Business Saturday tomorrow, 11/30, at your local small businesses. I know I’ll be checking them out, too, in-store and online. Small businesses could really use your support, especially at this time of year! Speaking of small business, here’s a sampling of a few newly added items in The Marketplace to inspire your wedding. We’ve found a clutch, a garter, a stunning hair accessory, whimsical garland, and more. Enjoy!

At Emmaline Bride, it’s no secret that we’re head over heels in love with handmade wedding ideas. Handmade weddings are more memorable, personalized, and include hand-picked ideas by the bride and groom. Why should the registry skip over the handmade love? Handmade wedding gifts are more likely to be enjoyed, treasured, and displayed in the couple’s love nest for years, longer than a blender, set of dish towels, or a coffee maker ever could (I’m already on my second coffee maker). Plus, each gift is crafted with two hands, love, and care, and each dollar supports the artisan directly.
Today, we’re showcasing ten hand-picked handmade wedding gifts to prove that handmade wedding gifts rank higher on the list of awesome than anything ever purchased at a store. We hope this post encourages you to consider these handmade wedding ideas – and more in The Marketplace (with over 15,000+ handmade wedding items and counting!) – for your big day + support the talents of artisans across the globe. Enjoy!

Soft satin ribbon + tons of sparkle caught our eye on this dress sash! We love how the rhinestones surround the ribbon so it doesn’t get lost in the same shade of your wedding dress.

Happy Weekend! We hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather! Today, we’re bringing you one easy way to add personalization to your handmade wedding: ribbon! Instead of traditional ribbon that simply ties in your color palette, consider stamped, personalized ribbon instead. Wrap your wedding invitations, programs, and favors with ribbon trim hand-stamped with your wedding date, names, theme (“The Perfect Pair”), initials, or anything else of which you can dream. By The Lonely Heart.

One reason (out of 93942902) why we love handmade wedding items is the ability to request a custom order just for you. For example, jewelry in stores simply cannot compete with the quality of handmade custom jewelry to tie in your color palette or wedding theme. And, unlike big box chains, handmade artisans are usually delighted to fill custom orders and work with brides one-on-one. One talented artisan who loves custom orders is Amy of Helen Ethel Studio. When Amy receives a custom order from a bride, she doesn’t just create a beautiful piece – she creates totally custom jewelry styled just for you. So, when a bride-to-be named Katie requested a custom jewelry order for her upcoming June wedding, Amy took on the challenge. Katie, who sounds like a sweetheart of a bride, gave Amy full artistic reign and only asked that her jewelry reflect her vintage aesthetic and coordinate with her color palette. Ready for the challenge, Amy got to work and selected brass to tie in Katie’s love for vintage jewelry while complementing the rich of sapphire and lime green nicely. A multi-strand necklace was selected as the style for a layered look, which will look beautiful worn with the bridesmaids’ sleeveless sapphire blue dresses. The final result?
