If you’re planning a rustic wedding, adding a little flair to your space with antique, reclaimed, or re-purposed décor will make it your own.

But who has time for that? There’s an easier way to find what you need for your wedding (and afterward, as home decor!) thanks to AntiqueFarmhouse.com. We’ve handpicked nineteen items we love from their site to inspire your rustic wedding decor. Here are some products and ideas on how to use them…

“Fun Favor Ideas for Kids at Weddings?” – Ask Emmaline

Happy Friday, lovelies! Emma here. I loved reading all of your wonderful Ask Emmaline questions this week, so keep ’em coming. (I honestly read every single one!) If we haven’t posted yours yet, we will soon. Promise! Today we’re answering Samantha’s question about what kind of favors to give to kids attending her wedding. She asks,

Hi Emmaline! I’m working on wedding favors right now and we’re expecting approximately 10 children at our wedding. I know a wine bottle stopper isn’t exactly a great favor for all ages. ;) Any advice on a kid-friendly favor I can swap out for them instead? Thanks!Samantha

Hi Samantha! Kid-friendly favors in lieu of your selected favor (in your case, the wine bottle stopper) are an easy way to keep kids happy and having fun before dinner! One of our favorite ideas is a favor bag filled with small toys, a coloring book, crayons, and some candy (especially these!) — even better if there are even some fun wedding-themed games right on the outside! These genius kid-friendly favor bags are made by Mavora. And they’ll pretty much make you the coolest bride ever.

You can even add these cute “Have Fun” stickers to the favor bags!

Why Classic Guest Books Are *Always* a Great Choice for Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and it’s time to get down to business! Wake up, grab a cup of coffee, and get ready to cross “guest book” off your seemingly long list of wedding to-do’s. Today, you’re going to pick a guest book. That’s all there is to it! And since we’ve shared so many alternative guest books in the past, there’s really no reason you can’t find one you love in the archives, in The Marketplace, or right here in this carefully curated list. But first, let me get something off my chest. When did a simple guest book become boring? While lovely, not everyone envisions globes or maps or creative wall prints or large monogram letters as guest books. Some of us love a traditional, classic book! A guest book will never let you down; there are no accessories like batteries for a camera or special markers or photo paper required (even though you know I love these). There is just simple paper, a pen, and a line for guests to write their heartfelt wishes. So, we’re helping you out: we’re sharing twenty-five guest books with a little something for everyone! Just wait until you see the list! Read on for more…
