8 Clever Ways to Personalize Your Wedding

Hi, loves! One of the reasons why I love handmade (+ why Emmaline Bride is dedicated to handmade weddings) is because of the ability to personalize every detail. When I wrote my book, I emphasized how important it is to put your own personal stamp throughout your entire wedding. Every couple has a unique story to tell; why plan the same wedding as everyone else? Today we’ve rounded up a few clever ways to personalize your wedding as inspiration. Check out these fantastic finds and enter for a chance to win one of your very own! Read on to find out more!

1. Silhouette Bride and Groom Guest Book

Does it get any more personalized than this silhouette set? You can use this as a guest book or buy as a wedding gift for your favorite newlyweds’ home. This one goes on my ‘must-have’ list, for sure.
