What’s Hot This Weekend – June 23rd

Hi, loves, + Happy Saturday! Welcome to the newest feature at Emmaline Bride: The Weekend Edition. Your wedding planning doesn’t come to a screeching halt because it’s the weekend… and frankly, neither do we. We’re constantly looking for the latest + greatest handmade wedding inspiration… so much so that we become overloaded with the goods. Beginning this weekend at Emmaline Bride, we’re offering a handmade wedding roundup to showcase the goods (like handmade wedding finds, tips, advice, DIYs, inspiration, and other hip happenings from the web) to kick start your weekend into wedding planning mode. Read on to see what we’re unveiling this week in the wedding world including a clutch purse fit for the sweetest bridesmaid, a Grammy announcement, a kick-you-know-what pair of heels, DIY lollipop favors, and much more… so, without further adiueu… let’s begin!

Handmade Wedding Round-Up – June 23, 2012

We’re kicking off this weekend’s round-up with a pastel colored 1950’s style wedding that makes our heart sing. We spotted it via Rock N’Roll Bride and we’ve never seen pastels so pretty. Photograph by We Heart Pictures.

Clutch + Portrait = Love.

We’d like to extend a high five + huge congratulations to Featured Artisan, Jami of Eclu, whose clutch purses will be featured in Emmy celebrity bags this weekend! Eclu’s collection of clutch purses are now red-carpet ready and will be in the hands of some of your favorite celebrities this weekend. Jami’s hard work and stellar craftsmanship has brought her much success, and we know this is just one exciting announcement of many to come. Congrats, Jami! In light of this wonderful news, we’re sharing these amazing clutch purses from her shop that we love! The clutch itself is gorgeous… but look closely: there’s a portrait inside!

Oh, and because we can’t get enough of Eclu’s fab collection, check out these flowers (of which we’d like in every single shade). These flowers go everywhere: clip them to your shoes, wear in your hair, pin to your blouse, dress up a gift, or decorate your space.
