Hello, loves! Happy weekend! We’re popping in to tell you that our monthly series for September is 30 Wedding Cakes (you may remember our 31 Hairstyles in July, followed by 31 Giveaways in August). We’re a little late to the party, so to speak, but we’ll be filling in the blanks to ensure we hit the 30 mark before October. Let’s hit it and kick off the first of many gorgeous wedding cakes: the naked wedding cake with peonies.

When you’re planning a handcrafted wedding, you know how awesome it is to find unique, creative ideas for re-purposing ordinary, daily things. Maybe it’s because GPS has replaced maps so no one really sees them anymore, but we love how maps are being re-purposed into all sorts of wedding decor, from invitations to garland to home decor prints. Check out these map ideas we found to learn more…

For a more perfect DIY wedding favor, remember that what you put inside favors is just as important as its packaging. Cute, personalized favor bags are more pleasing and irresistible to guests, which means you’ll have less favors left over (and money well spent). And who doesn’t want their guests to enjoy every last favor? When we spotted these favor bags over at Mavora Art & Design, it was a win, win, win: they’re handmade, totally custom, and perfect for filling with candies, popcorn, or other favorite treats. Plus, since Abby over at Mavora is so sweet, she’s giving away a set of 100 favor bags to one lucky Emmaline Bride reader. This giveaway runs for one full week and there are plenty of ways to enter. And, if you don’t want to wait, you can go ahead and score an awesome twenty-percent-off deal exclusively for Emmaline Bride readers. We’ll get to all of that in a minute… first, let’s take a peek at her dynamic collection of wedding favor bags…

Do you love the look of ribbons on the backs of chairs, but you a) don’t want to spend hours doing it, and you b) don’t want to spend gobs of money on ribbon that will, essentially, be used for mere minutes? You’ve come to the right place! I love the look myself, but you won’t catch me cutting, knotting, and tying ribbons to the backs of over fifty-some backs of chairs. As Sweet Brown would say, Ain’t nobody got time for that. Instead, try this easy wedding hack: tie ribbons on the backs of chairs IN THE LAST ROW ONLY. Makes sense, no?

There are so many amazing wedding themes out there (speaking of, have you seen this yet?) but heart wedding ideas are often overlooked.

Whatever the reason, today we’re inspiring you to get creative with your heart-adoring self and steal these twenty-one heart themed wedding ideas. Read on for more… plus, you could win won of these heart themed wedding ideas from Harvest Gold Gallery, Giveaway #19 in our 31 Giveaways Series! Enjoy!

Up first, take a look at these adorable heart chair backs! Oh, and I may or may not be partial to this as the first selection because of the huge E & A (you know, me + hubby) on the back wall. Where was this for my own wedding?

One of our favorite parts of handmade weddings? The decor! There are so many creative twists on traditional items that we’ve been finding lately. We especially love when artists make keepsake-quality items you can use long after the wedding is over. For instance, this wedding card box suitcase over at PNZ Designs can be used to hold cards from guests, guest book notes, or pop open the suitcase and use it as a creative escort card display. The front is embellished with your monogram, etched in wood and stained to perfection. Love, love, love.
