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.

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!

Good morning, loves! I blissfully awoke this morning to the sound of birds chirping, a light breeze lofting through my window, and a bright, sunny, cloudless sky. In a word? Perfection. I love this time of year – it’s wedding season! – and I am fascinated by the beautiful, nature-inspired accents found in many Real Weddings today. One of my favorite themes to date is a bird themed wedding, a popular nature-inspired option for couples. Today, we’re bringing you three new bird themed wedding finds to inspire you as you sip on your coffee and ease into your day. So, if you’re ready to begin, we kick off the list with a pair of ultra-sweet love bird chair signs. Enjoy!

Who doesn’t adore love birds, much less handmade love birds? We especially love this handmade love birds cake topper by Tuck & Bonte, which has completely stolen our hearts. This topper features charming details like the groom bird in a felt top hat and ribbon bow tie, while his wife, Mrs. Bird, wears a lace and net veil, a strand of pearls, long eyelashes, and a pop of lipstick. Don’t they make a cute couple?
