Hi, lovelies! Emma here. One of our latest Ask Emmaline questions really inspired me the other day because it’s not only a fantastic idea, but it also saves some money in the process. Rachelle wrote to us about bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers — as in, nixing the bouquets altogether and having her bridesmaids walk down the aisle carrying a pretty bag instead of a bouquet. She writes,

Dear Emmaline, I want to give my bridesmaids clutches instead of flowers (bouquets) as gifts. I don’t have a budget that allows for the cost of a clutch AND a bouquet for each bridesmaid, so I have to either pick a less expensive bridesmaid gift or skip bouquets altogether. I have seen other weddings where bridesmaids have walked down the aisle with a clutch purse, but is it proper etiquette to do so? Also, do you have any tips on what kind of clutches would suffice? Thank you!

Hi Rachelle! Not only is this a great question, but bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers is a brilliant idea for a variety of reasons. Find out why we love (and recommend) this option…

Plaid Bridesmaid Clutch for Fall Weddings

Hey, loves! Happy weekend! Some of my favorite handmade finds are the result of simply popping in to my favorite Etsy shops to see what’s new. One of my recent fave finds was discovered when I popped in to Juneberry Stitches where I found the loveliest plaid doily clutch purse I had ever seen. Now to be fair it is probably the first plaid clutch purse with a doily that I have ever seen, but that’s what makes it so unique.

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. Happy Monday! To kick things off this week, we’re talking about tassel wedding decorations and accessories. I used to loathe tassels. I would see them on pillows, on curtains and rugs, and on loafers — and I thought, what a strange old look. They always reminded me of the graduation hat tassel that is turned to one side once you receive your diploma. And they just seemed so old and outdated to me. Who would want that in their house, I wondered. But that was years ago and now I think tassels are actually really cute and festive. I think it has to do with the manner and colors in which they’re designed, with pops of hot pink and aqua being two of my favorites. Tassel wedding garland, for instance, is one easy way to decorate an empty wall, create an impromptu backdrop, or decorate around a cake table in a pinch. And it’s not just tassel decorations that are making a name for themselves, but tassel accessories (like keychains, necklaces, bracelets, purses), too. Today we’re going to show you why tassels are in with seventeen finds from handmade designers across the globe. And you might just become a tassel fan like me — or you’ll at least see why people are jumping on the tassel train with this fun and festive trend. Enjoy!
