Happy Tuesday, loves! Emma here. We’ve been receiving your wonderful Ask Emmaline questions, 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…

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. The most popular resources for farm-inspired ideas and shabby chic details is to head to a flea market, estate sale, or scour garage sales hoping to find something that works. 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…
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…

We spotted them over at Laura Hooper Calligraphy, the pro when it comes to calligraphy everything. (P.S. She’ll even teach you how to do calligraphy!) The sign is hand-lettered and measures 8″ x 10″. Take a peek!

Are you planning to have a signature drink or mason jar drinks at your wedding?

To share some swizzle-spiration with you today, we are sharing a new creation from Company Forty Two, where Shelly is once again inspiring us to want a huge bash just because!
