This Crystal Bridal Jewelry is Incredible

Good morning, loves! When Jessica wrote to us asking about wanting to find crystal bridal jewelry for her wedding, we couldn’t resist pushing her Ask Emmaline question to the top of the heap! (Who doesn’t want an added dose of sparkle on the big day?) She asks,

Hi Emmaline! My wedding dress is beautiful and I love it but it is fairly simple. Do you have any suggestions for bridal jewelry I can wear to add some sparkle, especially necklaces? Thanks!

Great question, Jessica! For maximum sparkle, go with crystal jewelry! You’ll want to choose a necklace which accentuates your neckline without overpowering it. Some details to consider are statement necklaces, pearl necklaces, or a mix of pearl and crystal drop necklaces. One of our favorite places to browse (okay, swoon over) is Tigerlilly Couture because they have a pretty incredible selection. Here are some pieces we’ve hand-picked just for you…

Happy Monday, loves! We’re kicking off this brand new week with a rustic gift idea for your bridesmaids. Have you seen these burlap clutches from JadieCakes?

This is one bridesmaid gift which will be enjoyed for years to come. Plus, you can have bridesmaids carry these instead of flowers, if you prefer! Take a look at a few of our favorites…

Silk wedding bouquets are a brilliant alternative to fresh flowers when the bride wants a bouquet that lasts forever. Instead of putting a lot of money into a bouquet that wilts and gets thrown in the trash, a silk bouquet looks beautiful for years to come. I’m very particular when it comes so silk bouquets, but when I spotted these over at Fashion Touch Weddings I knew we had found something beautiful. These are handmade bouquets, made with two hands, love, and high-quality materials not found in other bouquets. Plus, they’re an exceptional price!

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. One of our latest Ask Emmaline questions really inspired me the other day because it’s not only a fantastic idea, but it also saves some money in the process. Rachelle wrote to us about bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers — as in, nixing the bouquets altogether and having her bridesmaids walk down the aisle carrying a pretty bag instead of a bouquet. She writes,

Dear Emmaline, I want to give my bridesmaids clutches instead of flowers (bouquets) as gifts. I don’t have a budget that allows for the cost of a clutch AND a bouquet for each bridesmaid, so I have to either pick a less expensive bridesmaid gift or skip bouquets altogether. I have seen other weddings where bridesmaids have walked down the aisle with a clutch purse, but is it proper etiquette to do so? Also, do you have any tips on what kind of clutches would suffice? Thank you!

Hi Rachelle! Not only is this a great question, but bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers is a brilliant idea for a variety of reasons. Find out why we love (and recommend) this option…

Plan a Breathtaking Destination Elopement (Real Weddings)

Plan Destination Elopement Weddings in Colorado or Kentucky | Angelyn + Justin's Red River Gorge Wedding in Kentucky (Intimate small wedding) | http://www.emmalinebride.com/real-weddings/plan-a-breathtaking-destination-elopement-in-kentucky-colorado-mountains/ | photo: My Tiny Wedding/Two Colorado - Kentucky and Colorado Wedding Photographer, Venue, Officiate wedding package

Have you dreamed of getting married in the mountains? Do you prefer an intimate elopement with just the two of you and your closest guests? After seeing this Real Wedding feature, you’ll definitely want to consider it! Angelyn and Justin drove up from Florida to Kentucky to spend the week in the Red River Gorge for their “elopecation”, as they wanted something unique for their big day. Once they arrived, they hiked in with their regular walking shoes and wedding attire while the team of Two Colorado photographed them along the way. When they reached their ceremony location (under a beautiful arch in the Red River Gorge), they switched into their dress shoes. As Two Colorado tells us, “They had their ceremony just as the sun was about to hit the horizon, casting beautiful lighting on the Sandstone Altar that Mother Nature had created. The only two guests were their mothers, who both traveled from Florida the day before. After the ceremony, they all went back to their cabin to have dinner. They also enjoyed a cake, made from scratch by My Tiny Wedding, using the finest ingredients.” It sounds like a breathtaking and relaxing wedding day to us! See how their beautiful day unfolded in the photos below…
