Looking for an awesome groomsmen gift? Consider two key attributes: 1) the gift is functional, and 2) the gift is custom. If the gift is functional, he’ll be sure to actually use it. And, if it’s custom-made, he won’t already own one — and he’s likely to keep it for a long time. Today we’re sharing shirt collar stays, one of our favorite groomsmen gift ideas. What are shirt collar stays, you ask? Read on to find how they’re used, why he’ll love ’em, and find out where you can grab a set for your groom, groomsmen, ring bearer, fathers, and grandfathers…

We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks,
“I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…
