New Trend: Sparkly Sequin Letter in Gold or Silver

At Emmaline Bride, one of our goals is to share the latest + greatest handmade wedding trends + finds, along with Real Wedding ideas. So, when we stumbled upon this ultra-sparkly sequin letter over at Miss Poppy Design, it pretty much stopped us in our tracks. We’ve see monogram letters done over, and over, and over againburlap covered, fabric covered, yarn covered, etc. But sequin-covered? Now that’s new — and we’re on board with this sparkly, festive detail. Use it as a decor piece at your bridal shower, bachelorette bash, or at your wedding. Who wouldn’t love to re-purpose this pretty piece in her home office after the big day? I know I’m already scheming a way to fit it into EB Headquarters. I mean, we could always use more gold in our office, am I right? And just like coffee and lipstick and pretty high heels, a girl can never have too much sparkly gold decor. That’s my motto anyway. Enjoy!

I love it in gold…

Easy Table Number Idea for Rustic Wedding

We love an easy DIY decor idea, especially when it combines two wedding essentials in one. Case in point? These heart table numbers spotted over at Montana Snow. These table numbers are an excellent idea because they are added right to your centerpiece.

Easy Table Number Idea

These heart table numbers are made of wood and stamped with the table number on each. It can be placed in a vase of flowers, like your centerpiece, so guests can find their seats easily. Since you don’t need a table number to hold these up, you have one less detail to worry about! (We love that.)

And here’s an easy centerpiece idea: add baby’s breath to a blue mason jar and place a table number inside. See? One and done!

50+ Greatest Geeky Wedding Ideas of All Time

Calling all engaged nerds! And, we say that, of course, with the greatest affection. One of the wedding themes that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is an offbeat wedding. An offbeat wedding is non-traditional and includes creative touches to really bring out two people’s quirky personalities.

Geeky weddings are pretty amazing.

Nerdy, geeky, offbeat weddings are some of our favorites because there are SO MANY insanely creative ideas out there. In today’s post, we’ve rounded up fifty (plus!) greatest geeky wedding ideas of all time including finds from Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Minecraft, and Game of Thrones, just to name a few. We’ve found a couple battling it out with light sabers in the form of a cake topper, a Harry Potter necklace gift for the groom to his bride, a set of Superhero garters for the entire bridal party to wear, a bracelet set for Game of Thrones enthusiasts, wedding art prints for your future Harry Potter decked out home, cuff links, wedding gift ideas, and more. Let’s just say we’ve found SO MUCH geeky goodness in this post and we are so delighted to share it with you. Plus, these are all handmade via Etsy (US). Anyways, grab your favorite coffee mug (like this, which is totally amazing) and let’s get to it!
