I have two questions. First, when are we supposed to give our bridesmaids and groomsmen their gifts? Second, how should they be presented? Do they need to be wrapped? Thanks!

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. Happy Monday! To kick things off this week, we’re talking about tassel wedding decorations and accessories. I used to loathe tassels. I would see them on pillows, on curtains and rugs, and on loafers — and I thought, what a strange old look. They always reminded me of the graduation hat tassel that is turned to one side once you receive your diploma. And they just seemed so old and outdated to me. Who would want that in their house, I wondered. But that was years ago and now I think tassels are actually really cute and festive. I think it has to do with the manner and colors in which they’re designed, with pops of hot pink and aqua being two of my favorites. Tassel wedding garland, for instance, is one easy way to decorate an empty wall, create an impromptu backdrop, or decorate around a cake table in a pinch. And it’s not just tassel decorations that are making a name for themselves, but tassel accessories (like keychains, necklaces, bracelets, purses), too. Today we’re going to show you why tassels are in with seventeen finds from handmade designers across the globe. And you might just become a tassel fan like me — or you’ll at least see why people are jumping on the tassel train with this fun and festive trend. Enjoy!

Have you picked out a flower girl basket for your ceremony yet? If your venue allows the traditional tossing of petals, you will need a vessel to hold them all. (If your venue prohibits it, here are some alternatives.) What kind of basket should you choose? That’s entirely up to you! When I wrote my book, The Inspired Wedding, I shared tons of ways you can tie your decor into your wedding theme. When it comes to ceremony, flower girl baskets can take on many different looks. For instance, a birch bark container with an added handle can become a flower girl basket for a more rustic or woodland wedding. Other vessels such as pails, purses, wood boxes, planters, and jewelry boxes can work in a pinch. If it ties into your wedding theme and can hold a small amount of petals, it counts as a flower girl basket. Today we’re sharing some of our favorite themed flower girl basket ideas to help you decide. See them all below and find out two key tips to remember when picking out a basket. Enjoy!

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. It’s Friday already, can you believe it? I am still wrapping my head around the fact that it is September. Not just early September, but already half-past. Good things ahead, though– October is one of the prettiest months ever. It’s chillier, cozier, and leaves start to change color. Andrew and I have been going on walks with the kids lately and there’s a spot through the woods that looks totally gorgeous this time of year. I can’t wait to see the scenery change as the weeks go by.

Anyways, earlier today we talked about how to pick a wedding veil and now we’re sharing a unique ring bearer box for your ceremony. While a ring pillow is the first thing brides think they need for their ceremony, it’s not the only way to carry those rings down the aisle. We’ve talked about ring pillow alternatives in the past but a ring bearer box is the top choice right now for couples. Read on to find out why and enter for a chance to win one by Woodstorming, experts in ring bearer boxes and accessories. Enjoy!
