7 Creative Handmade Wedding Charms

Wedding charms might not be on your wedding to-do list, but after today’s post you’ll want to add them! We’ve seen so many handmade wedding charms for wine glasses, bouquets, and cake pulls, just to name a few. Since we find wedding charms so, well, charming, we thought it would be fun to share the best ideas for wedding charms. And we didn’t stop there: we teamed up with the lovely Jen of Jen Ramey Designs to give away wedding charms for wine glasses AND a $50 gift card to her shop. Read on to see what we’ve found and enter for a chance to win!

2. This amazing boutonniere charm with handwritten side

Remember a loved one who has passed with this sweet, sentimental boutonniere idea. I love how it has two sides: one side has a handwritten portion (designed from his or her actual handwriting); the other is a photo. By Now That’s Personal.

This boutonniere pin features a charm that is handwritten on one side and features a photo on the other. It is used as a way to remember a loved one who has passed at your wedding. | Handmade Wedding Charms via http://emmalinebride.com/decor/handmade-wedding-charms/

Custom Portrait Rubber Stamp Made from YOUR Photo

Want to make your wedding invitations stand out? Look no further than this custom portrait rubber stamp! It’s an actual rubber stamp that is made FROM YOUR PHOTO and in your image and likeness. Imagine how many ways you can use this: on invitation envelopes, on return cards, on thank you notes, favor tags, programs… and then afterward on your own stationery! I love how this rubber stamp really looks like the couples it represents; moreover, it isn’t overly “wedding” so it continues to be functional long after the big day. I want one of these just for the heck of it because they’re so darn cute! This custom portrait stamp is made with love by Lilimandrill and you just have to see the examples below. It’s today’s #HANDMADEADAY find. Enjoy!

Take 5 → Vintage Summer Wedding + Creative Ideas

It’s time for a fun new series at Emmaline Bride! Be sure you’re following along so you don’t miss any inspiration along the way.

When we spotted these vintage Real Wedding details captured by Justin & Mary and designed by mStarr Event Design, it was the bouquets (from Petal Floral Design) that first caught my eye. Then it was the escort cards, and those chic centerpieces, and the boutonnieres! So, today we’re kicking off a brand new series every Monday called Take 5, where we bring you five stunning ideas from one single real wedding. We’re all about the details here (especially handmade ones!) at Emmaline Bride, so we know you crave creativity as much as we do. For our first feature, we’re sharing five unique ideas including a naked wedding cake, a decorative way to hold wedding cards, a reception table to dream of, and more. We even threw in two bonuses just because we couldn’t help ourselves. ;) Enjoy!

Vintage Summer Wedding

1. These bridesmaid dresses

… and those bouquets!

2. This inventive card drawer, instead of a card box

Cute idea — and reusable, too.

3. This naked wedding cake

I like the flowers on top, in lieu of a traditional cake topper.

4. The head table

Just the right amount of everything: flowers, taper candles, a draped ceiling and romantic lighting. Perfection.

5. The unique bookmark escort cards

The calligraphy on these bookmarks is everything!

Lawn games are a terrific idea, especially for entertaining guests during cocktail hour or before dinner. You can get custom corn hole games here.
