Good morning, loves! Emma here. I know I talk about coffee a lot, especially on our Twitter feed, because I adore it so. My sister even surprised me with a “But First, Coffee” tee shirt for my birthday because she knows the obsession is real. Even here, I’ve managed to squeak in a little coffee here and there from these DIY coffee favors, these adorb mugs, any of these, and even a coffee themed wedding. But tea is pretty darn good, too, and I know a handful of friends who are loyal drinkers who won’t sip an ounce of coffee. (Absurd, I say, but to each their own!) So, when I noticed how Tea Heritage is going out of its way to make tea cuter than ever to drink, I couldn’t resist spreading the word. These custom tea bags would make incredible bridal shower favors (for a tea themed shower or otherwise); likewise, they would make a fab wedding favor for your guests. Read on to see what makes them so cute!

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! Today we’re featuring the latest Ask Emmaline question. When is too late to order your wedding invitations? Sasha wrote to us admittedly a little nervous about her looming wedding date and her lack of wedding invites at the ready. Is she ordering invitations too late? She writes,

“Dear Emmaline, I’m freaking out. My wedding date is November 12th and I have not ordered my wedding invitations yet. I was talking to my best friend who got married last year and she told me I need to hurry because most invitation designers are all booked up way in advance. She also said I’m way behind. Am I ordering my invitations too late?”

If your guests are a fun group of partygoers (like ours were), they will certainly appreciate this interactive idea! We spotted these wedding advice mad libs over at Cami’s Paperie and love the creativity behind it. Instead of a traditional guest book, guests fill out a wedding mad libs card — WITHOUT PEEKING! The result reads as a hilarious and memorable bit of advice they’ve created based on filling in a few easy verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and nouns, where indicated. After the wedding, simply hole-punch the sides and arrange in a binder or place in a scrapbook to re-read for years to come. Check them out!

Want to make a grand exit at your ceremony, but your venue doesn’t allow you to throw rice or confetti? You’re not alone. Many venues are saying no to messy or potentially hazardous ceremony tosses. (Mine wouldn’t allow us to, either!) But that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. See Jessica’s Ask Emmaline question about an alternative to throwing rice:

Hi Emmaline! I had my heart set on our guests tossing rice in the air as we exited the ceremony, but our venue forbids it. My mom suggested we do something different. Is there an alternative to throwing rice?
