As promised, today we’re sharing a brief recap of the show, some snapshots of our booth, and a few details of this event. Read on to find out the full scoop…

Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta – Recap

The Emmaline Bride booth was situated in the Vintage area of the show. We brought a vintage / rustic vibe, combined with a handcrafted flair (thanks to the wonderful artisans who helped contribute their work). The ‘Emmaline Bride’ banner was made by me in a palette of fun printed papers and simple hot pink twine. We loooooved the barn door bar and Chiavari chairs… the perfect combination of rustic chic elegance.

If you stopped by our booth, you saw our signature favor bags (filled with yummy candies) which coincided with a giveaway of my book, The Handcrafted Wedding! Many brides-to-be took home a signed copy of the book!

We were surrounded by lovely vendors in the ‘Vintage’ area of the show. We had the opportunity to chat with Kat and Van Earl of Mary Mac’s Tea Room in Atlanta. They had a gorgeous display complete with a faux fireplace mantle, white poms, burlap table linens… and, might I add, the most AMAZING food. (Their cinnamon rolls were the best I’ve ever had!)
