While any necklace could technically be considered ‘wear-again’ after the wedding, today we set out on a mission to find wear again bridesmaid necklaces they’ll actually want to wear again — and not just for elegant occasions.
These bridesmaid necklaces from Ava Hope Designs are designed for everyday wear, which means your bridesmaid gift to her will become her favorite new daily accessory. Take a peek at the handpicked necklaces that struck a chord with my little handmade heart…

This bride in her gorgeous wedding dress is our POTD (photo of the day). Her bridesmaids’ expressions say, “You look AMAZING!” This photo was captured by Brooke from Brooke Brooks Photography at a South Carolina wedding. We featured the Real Wedding last year as seen here: “Farm Fresh Wedding: Beth + Bryan“.

Hello, hello! It’s time for another fantastic giveaway, #16 in our 31 Wedding Giveaways series! And, might I add, it’s a good one. (But really, they’re all pretty amazing, no?) We’ve teamed up with Rachel of Peachtree Lane to offer a secret message locket to one lucky reader. This locket opens and has enough room for a small, folded, sweetly-written note for yourself or a loved one. You can keep a special date close to your heart or use it as a cute way to ask, ‘Be My Bridesmaid‘. We also love the idea of this necklace with a ‘Will You Marry Me’ inside. I can see it now: she goes to open the necklace, read the note, and as she does he gets down on one knee and holds out the ring box… so sweet. Read on to find out more…

Holy smokes, you guys: you’ve been blowing up our Ask Emmaline inbox! Your wedding questions are awesome, our readers are the best on the planet, and we can’t wait to answer them all. Bride-to-be, Nicky, asks us, “I just bought cosmetic pouches for my bridesmaids, but I have no idea what to put in them. Do you give them as-is or are you supposed to put other gifts inside? Help!” Fantastic question, and an easy one at that! For starters, no, you don’t have to fill bridesmaid bags with any extra gifts, unless you want to (and your budget allows). If you do decide to add gifts, we’ve rounded up ten fun ideas for what to put in bridesmaid bags below. PLUS, we’ve teamed up with Almquist Design Studio to give away a set of bridesmaid bags to one lucky reader. Now you’ll have ideas for what to put in bridesmaid bags (and a set of cute handmade bags to give!) Enjoy!

Hi, loves. Emma here! I’m obsessed with druzy jewelry right now. But, let’s be honest: is there ever a time I haven’t loved these gorgeous stones? No. Never. So, when I spotted the newly added bridesmaid druzy jewelry over at Bare and Me, it was pretty much a fact that I was going to share them with you immediately. You don’t have to ask your lovely ladies to be your bridesmaid with a gift, but it sure does make it even sweeter, don’t you think? And, with druzy bridesmaid jewelry pieces — like these colorful necklaces and stud earrings — they’re sure to (gleefully) accept your request. Now, I feel a responsibility to warn you in advance: these druzy jewelry pieces are so gorgeous, you might just have to buy one (you know, or ten) to see them for yourself. You know, make sure they’re just as gorgeous as they look. I’m pretty sure they are (but if my husband is reading, I want this in blue. It’s gorgeous.) Ha. Enjoy!

Hi, lovelies! We’ve found a collection of lace clutch purses so lovely they deserved their own feature! Allisa Jacobs has been busy rolling out some new clutch purses for the spring and summer months, and my favorite is her collection of lace clutch purses in mint, coral, ivory, or navy. With colors like these — and just a hint of lace covering the exterior — the result is a purse with a delightful pop of color and a more modern feel. Plus, these clutch purses are totally versatile for bridesmaids to carry even after the wedding (and the perfect size, too!) Don’t forget to grab one for yourself, too, and fill it with these sorts of things. Take a closer look…
