Happy Monday! We’re kicking off another fun-filled handmade wedding week with a fun idea for your ceremony: wedding flags. These celebratory wedding flags make a great alternative to throwing rice or confetti (particularly if you’re tying the knot indoors where throwing things is prohibited). Place one of these wedding flags on each guest’s seat and instruct guests to wave them as you process down the aisle. These adorable flags are chock-full of charm with sentiments such as “Sweet Love”, “Hooray!”, “Yay!”, and “Oh Joy!”. These wedding flags are spring or summer wedding ready in bright, cheery shades of orange, yellow, and hot pink. Read on for more…

Today, we’re showing you how to dress up your wedding drinks from drab to fab in seconds flat with a little help by Pink Cherry Mama, featured artisan in The Marketplace. Roberta, shop owner and designer, offers a lovely collection of striped straws, drink tags, and colorful ribbons to greet your guests upon arrival at your reception. We love the idea of tying her brilliant handmade “drink me” tags (reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland) to the tops of glass soda bottles for a soda bar at your reception. Or, placing striped straws in mason jars filled with a signature cocktail or freshly squeezed lemonade. Read on to see a few of our favorite hand-picked striped straws:

If you’re a bride who already rocks gorgeous locks (hi there, beautiful!) this post was written just for you. Your hair is already pretty as is, so don’t feel pressure to wear it up just because it seems like the thing to do. Instead, wear your hair in a way that makes you look and feel your own personal best. This means you could rock tons of volume, a stylish braid down the aisle, tousle your hair into a wavy, beach chic look, a chic up-do, or wear your hair down to suit your specific style. With any wedding hairstyle you select, you’ll feel confident and look radiant because you’ll feel like your very best self. So, grab that cup of coffee and get ready to inspire your styling side with an assortment of wedding hair down styles selected just for you. We’ve also included a few fun DIY hairstyles to try this weekend! So, let’s begin, shall we?

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!
