Hello, loves! We’re kicking off this lovely Tuesday with an Ask Emmaline question from a bride-to-be. Nicole writes us and says, “My flower girl loves tutus, and I want to find her one that she can wear at the wedding. However, our wedding is going to be very formal. Most of the tutus I’ve seen are casual; where can I find a formal flower girl tutu?” Well, Nicole, you’re in luck! We’ve found one formal flower girl tutu dress we think you’ll love (and she’ll be excited to wear). Find out more about this stunning – and more formal – flower girl tutu dress after the jump!

Hello, hello! One of the many, many reasons I (Emma here!) love handmade weddings is the use of sustainable, re-usable decor. Take flowers for example: you love their bright colors and fresh aroma, but what happens after the wedding is over? All florals and boutonnieres are tossed in the trash! What if you could have an alternative that lasts forever instead? Today, we’ve found it! We’re showing you some of the most incredible paper flower bouquets we’ve ever seen by The Little Red Button, a sweet handmade shop that provides paper flower bouquets, paper boutonnieres, paper flower corsages, and more for weddings. This handmade alternative lasts forever and can be re-used in your home as chic decor. These bouquets are even more incredible in person (Atlanta brides may remember this at the Bridal Extravaganza), if you can even believe it! Read on to find out more about these paper flower bouquets and get inspired for your handmade wedding! Enjoy!
