Are you planning a handmade wedding that’s a little bit whimsical and a whole lotta fun? This post is for you! Embroidered wedding ideas have been popping up all over the place and we’re loving the new-fashioned finds. Today’s new-fashioned embroidery features brilliant pops of color and pretty patterned fabric (like polka dots, chevron, and striped lines) and isn’t limited to an embroidery hoop alone. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up eight embroidered wedding ideas by Danielle of The Merriweather Council, an expert in embroidered arts. Each of these items is handmade and designed to be enjoyed at your wedding – and beyond! – in your home. As Danielle puts it, “When your wedding is over (sad face), you can keep these hoops and display them in your home (happy face!).” We couldn’t agree more! Read on to find out more… and, as always, we hope you enjoy!

My favorite of these embroidered wedding ideas? Why, embroidered initial necklaces, of course! I’m a sucker for anything with my name or initials on it, and these necklaces are so colorful + fun.
