How to Toss the Garter at a Wedding

Posted June 29, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Grooms: now this is how to toss the garter at a wedding! Place it over a football and have the gentlemen go long. Now, obviously, you won’t want to toss the garter like this indoors (I can only imagine the accidents that would occur if someone misses), but outdoors? Tent wedding with nearby grassy open field? Game on. This idea is especially perfect if hubby-to-be is a football fan. Or, feels sheepish about flinging lingerie across a formal room to male friends, family, and coworkers.

Awesome Idea: Life Size Jenga — Over 4 ft Tall!

Posted June 13, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

It’s Friday, the sun is shining, and we bet you just can’t wait to kick off the weekend. So, what better way to do so than with a fun post about our favorite lawn game! Life size Jenga (also known as a Tumble Tower) is a fun way to pass the time between cocktail hour and dinner. This life size tumbling tower — a shockingly 4ft tall version of the tabletop wood block game — will be the topic of conversation because something this ridiculously awesome can’t help but make a statement. And, who doesn’t love Jenga? (I think Jenga is fun for all ages, except this version… which I bought and surprisingly hated it. It literally explodes at random intervals and you spend most of the time just re-stacking the darn thing.) Find out where you can buy this huge tumbling tower and take a peek at one in action!

Hi, lovelies! Looking for a fun alternative guest book idea? We’ve found it! Introducing the wedding pinata, one of the latest-and-greatest guest book alternatives we’ve seen yet. Instead of a traditional guest book, each guest writes a message (a joke, a note, well wishes, or words of advice) on a piece of paper and places it inside the piñata. On your one year wedding anniversary, break open the piñata to discover heartwarming messages left by guests. Fun idea! Find out more about the wedding pinata and get inspired with a few handmade finds!

7 Tips for a Wedding Lemonade Stand

Posted June 2, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Hi, loves! Happy, Happy Monday! We’re excited to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration here at Emmaline Bride with a fresh new Ask Emmaline question. But first… what do you think of wedding lemonade stands? Yay? Nay? That’s what reader Steph wanted to know when she wrote us last week. She says, “Dear Emmaline, I’m planning the bar for my outdoor wedding. I’ve heard of a wedding lemonade stand, but I have no idea what it entails. Any tips so it doesn’t look cheesy?” Thanks for writing, Steph! We, too, have been swept up in the sweet-as-sugar bar ideas popping up everywhere (like here, mostly). And, like you, we don’t think every idea is a winner (as many can be downright cheesy). We do, however, think a lemonade stand at a wedding can be a fun, festive way to incorporate a favorite summertime drink and another way to use those clever mason jars with handles. I know, I know… but bear with us on this one. As long as you follow these tips, your wedding lemonade stand will be one your guests will love…

Mason Jars with Handles? – Ask Emmaline

Posted May 29, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks, “I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…
