Hi, loves! Emma here. I love monogrammed bridesmaid gifts: they’re personal and custom-made just for your recipient. Plus, since it has her initial on it, she’ll wear it / carry it / treasure it forever. We’ve hand-picked twelve of our favorite monogrammed things to share with you today. Which of these is your favorite? I’ve got my eye on the cosmetic pouch below in yellow… and that chic pearl bracelet!
Brides: there’s an emerging wedding trend you’ll want to know about… and once you do, you’ll want one! The newest wedding trend is the bridal cuff bracelet: the sparklier, the better! We’ve spotted some gorgeous cuff bracelets over at Cloe Noel to share with you today and we are having trouble deciding which one is prettiest. Can you help? Take a look at our hand-picked favorites and then share what YOU think of this trend!
Bridal Cuff Bracelets
First, what is a cuff bracelet? A cuff bracelet is a type of bracelet that is wide and adorned with different types of embellishments. For instance, we’ve spotted bridal cuff bracelets with rhinestones, gemstones, crystals, feathers, beading, pearls, and sequins, just to name a few. These particular bridal cuff bracelets — handmade by Cloe Noel — are completely one-of-a-kind and infused with vintage jewelry and rhinestone trimmings for that extra-special touch. Now you can have something new AND something old to wear down the aisle.
Wear a cuff bracelet that is embellished in blue and you’ll have something old, something new, and something blue! Then all you need is to borrow your sister’s gorgeous pair of earrings, no?
Told you they would WOW you. Now it’s time to grab one of your own. Head over to the shop to see the full collection!
Now it’s your turn: what do you think of bridal cuff bracelets?
Tell us with a comment below. We’d love to hear from you. Seriously. xo

Vintage Wedding Jewelry: Sweet & Spark
I’m not embarrassed to say that once I popped into Sweet & Spark, it took a lot of willpower to get me to leave! I couldn’t drag myself away from the gorgeous baubles and statement pieces. To pick out favorites is tough — I mean, each piece has its own unique look and is totally one-of-a-kind, so how can you possibly pick the best? Anyway, here’s a smattering of flattering pieces we knew you’d love…
These! These are the blue rhinestone earrings I was telling you about. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Hi, loves! At Emmaline Bride, you know we’re crazy over handmade weddings especially with so many beautiful items always added to our Marketplace. So, to inspire you, we’ve rounded up ten handmade wedding finds for your big day. We’ve found a stylish new accessory collection, a (totally fun!) rustic wedding invitation, shoes for your ring bearer and flower girl, a delicate locket necklace, a monogrammed gift for bridesmaids, and more. But, we want to know… which of these finds is your favorite?
Handmade Wedding Round-Up
1. New Accessories Collection
The lovely Tessa Kim just rolled out her 2014 wedding accessories collection and it’s absolutely stunning! Here are a few of our hand-picked favorites (though it was hard to choose):
When we spotted this rustic wedding invitation suite over at Paper Street Press, the first thing that caught our eye was the “Pretty Please” response card that, instead of ‘Yes’ states, “OH YEAH!” (love that!) It also indicates to ‘Save us the best ___ seats’. So cute! The colors, the typography, the twine… perfection.
3. Ring Bearer Shoes
Maybe it’s because Baby Boy is arriving any day now (!!!), but shoes like this were meant to be shared. I mean, does it get any cuter? If your ring bearer is a little guy, he’ll love these soft-soled shoes to wear on the big day…
… and your flower girl will love these heart-topped shoes. Shoes by Bitsy Blossom.
4. Locket Pendant
I’ve forever been a fan of lockets, especially ones that have a vintage-y look. There are so many incredible locket styles over at Jacaranda Designs that it was honestly hard to pick just one. I recommend wrapping this locket around your bouquet handle, with the bead as your “something blue”. Then, place photos in it from your wedding and wear on your honeymoon. That’s what I would do!
5. Parisian Chic Guest Book
Oh, how we adore the custom guest books over at Crafty Pie! This mint Parisian Chic design is my favorite of the collection. It suits many themes and is fully customizable with your words and color choice. Love, love, love. (P.S. I saw there’s a special 15% spring discount happening storewide, too! Hooray!)
Want your wedding cake to stand out from the rest? This cake topper set will do the trick! I love the owls that say, “I Do” and “Me Too”, along with the cake banner that simply reads, “Love”. Plus, it’s sold as a complete set. By SkyeArt.
8. Spring Flower Arrangements in Painted Mason Jars
Hi, loves! Happy Friday! Are you planning a vintage wedding with purple as part of your color palette? Want a bright POP of color for your bridal ensemble? We’ve found it! We were browsing Cloe Noel Designs and fell in love with this gorgeous purple rhinestone cuff bracelet, which is sure to make a statement down the aisle! Take a closer look…
Purple Rhinestone Cuff
This rhinestone cuff is made from vintage jewels and sequin trim. It is embellished with an oval purple vintage earring and accented with round pink crystal rhinestones. You’ll wear this cuff on your wedding day… and beyond! Makes a great bridesmaid gift, too.
Want a smaller size? These cuff bracelets (also in shades of purple and deep reds) feature a smaller band.
If purple isn’t your color, there are other colorful cuffs to love at Cloe Noel Designs! You can see more about this purple rhinestone cuff here.
