Hi, loves! So… Thanksgiving is less than a week away, temps are dropping over the weekend (maybe even a dusting of snow?) and I’m getting more and more antsy to turn on Christmas music on full blast. All day. With this version of Santa Baby on repeat. Ah, the holiday season: the time for Christmas themed wedding ideas, sequined accessories, delicious desserts, hot cocoa, chic cocktails (+ mocktails), and glamorous gifts for loved ones. Speaking of… I was browsing Emma Gordon London recently and couldn’t help but ooh and aah over the chic + sparkly wedding party bags in her collection. These make excellent wedding party bags for the holiday especially, with gold sequin, sparkly cobalt blue, and glittery black bags available. If you’re planning a holiday wedding — or your bridesmaids are wearing little black bridesmaid dresses — consider these party bags for their wedding gift. After all, it’s a gift they can use for the wedding day… and beyond. PLUS, we’re in the gift-giving spirit ourselves, so read on to see how you can win a little something for your stocking! Enjoy!

What does a Christmas themed wedding look like? We’re here to show you! Noel and Jason’s Christmas themed wedding last year was very DIY detail oriented with pine cones, neat pine tree gift favors, pine cone name cards, and much more.

It looks like everything is coming up flowers today at Emmaline Bride! A floral wedding theme is one of my favorite ideas especially for a garden wedding in the spring. To use this theme, you’ll want to select a soft color palette (or bold, if that’s more your style) and center the theme around a particular type of flower. Decorate your space with fragrant arrangements of floral centerpieces, carry large bouquets of flowers, adorn groomsmen in matching floral bouts, and have petals tossed down the aisle for your ceremony. Give wildflower packets to guests as favors, treat everyone to a dessert bar with flower-topped cupcakes, and wear one of these floral bridal hair crowns in your hair. It’s easy to do… especially when you have handmade wedding experts at the helm! Today we’re sharing a post featuring twenty sweet floral wedding ideas (all handmade!) to inspire you. While I opted for a softer palette, feel free to liven yours up with bold oranges, blues, or greens. Read on to see more + win a floral wedding must-have for your big day…
