How to Decorate Your Reception with Personal Style

posted on March 1, 2012 1 Comment

If you’re wondering how to decorate your reception, you’ve come to the right place! At Emmaline Bride, it’s no secret that we love handmade wedding ideas and inspirational twists on standard (read: boring) wedding decor. Each year, as new trends emerge into the wedding world (last year we saw plenty of mason jars, burlap table runners, and cake in a jar just to name a few), make sure you don’t get caught up in too many trends and lose sight of your own unique wedding story. Today, we’re sharing inspiration from an amazing couple named Kris and Heike who, while planning their wedding, made it their mission to skip all the trends and opt instead for decor that emphasized their personal style. The result? A wedding day that told volumes in the form of beautifully hand-selected decor and sweet sentimental details likely to be remembered by guests. Read on to find out how to decorate your reception with personal style with beautiful photographs by the lovely team at We Love Pictures. (Remember: If you’re making the effort to plan a handmade wedding, be sure you have an exceptional photography team on your side to capture every lovely detail! Make sure you choose a photographer who will make you proud.) Enjoy!

5 Reasons Why Handmade Wedding Invitations Rock

posted on February 28, 2012 2 Comments

Your wedding date is set, the location is breathtaking, and the guest list is finalized. Now, you’re ready to pick out the perfect wedding invitations to set the tone of your beautiful day. But, before you jump into the beautifully busting world of wedding paper, we’re here to give you a helping hand. Gone are the days of standard, boring, sign-here-and-print wedding invitations that give guests just the basics: the who, what, when, and where of the wedding day. At Emmaline Bride, we think know that wedding invitations without personalization do essentially nothing to get up your guests for your upcoming day. Handmade wedding invitations, however, offer a modern flair that can do wonders to get your guests excited. When selecting your invitations, consider handmade wedding invitations. If you’re wondering why, we’re ready with a list of five reasons why handmade wedding invitations rock along with inspiration by Cricket Printing‘s new 2012 collection. Enjoy!

10 Flower Brooch Pins You’ll Re-Pin Forever

posted on February 28, 2012 2 Comments

Several months ago, I bought a few flower brooches in light pink, ivory, and grey. I soon found myself pinning them everywhere: my scarf, my jacket, my cardigan – I even place them on a pretty china plate on my dresser because they look so pretty as-is. So, I thought, wouldn’t flower brooches look incredible on everything wedding? I pictured flower brooch pins added to bridesmaid dresses for the perfect pop of color, pinned to a gorgeous satin ribbon and wrapped as a wrist corsage, flower brooches pinned to sashes, bridal cardigans, and clutch purses. I even pictured them pinned to shoes as flower shoe clips. So, when we spotted the new fabric brooches collection at The Blooming Thread (featured at Emmaline Bride in The Marketplace) we knew you’d fall in love with them, too. Imagine these flower brooch pins gifted in a delightful box, pinned to bridesmaid dresses, and re-worn on “girls nights” for years to come! Which one do you love most?
