How It Began
Emmaline Bride (pronounced EMMA-LINE) launched in May 2009 and has grown into the leading handmade wedding resource for brides-to-be and engaged couples. Emmaline Bride was founded by CEO and Editor-in-chief, Emma Arendoski, after planning her own wedding. Emma was disappointed by the lack of unique, personal wedding items available in stores. After looking online, however, her planning process changed greatly. She says, “I was inspired! I spent hours browsing handmade wedding accessories, stationery, reception decor, cake toppers, bridesmaid clutches, and more. I wondered why there was no main ‘hub’ where the best handmade wedding finds and artisans were promoted. There’s so much talent out there and I wanted other brides, like myself, to be able to find them. And, in an instant, Emmaline Bride began.” Emmaline Bride receives over half a million unique visitors per month, features over 10,000 handmade wedding items in The Marketplace, provides couples with the best preferred vendor guide, showcases gorgeous Real Weddings and Engagements, and inspires brides-to-be on a daily basis with the nationally recognized, award-winning Blog.
Emmaline Bride is honor to have been featured in top publications including BRIDES, Glamour, Groom’s Advice, OneWed, Wedding Wire, The Huffington Post, My Wedding Concierge, DexWeddings, Bridal Guide, and more. Emmaline Bride was named the Top 100 Wedding Blogs in 2011, 2012, and 2013 by One Wed and was noted as one of the top influential wedding voices in the industry by WeFollow.
