7 Things Every Wedding Coffee Bar Needs to Have

Posted August 25, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m not lying when I say that coffee ranks pretty high up there in my list of my favorite things. From espresso to cappuccino to Keurig blends (like this, my latest obsession) to pumpkin-spice fall flavors coming out next month, I’d say that coffee is a fascination. Earlier I told our Twitter followers about the funny thing I almost did this morning so you can imagine that coffee is a pretty wonderful start to my everydays. It wakes me up, smells heavenly, and it’s the juice that keeps me going, going, going. So when I saw wedding coffee bar ideas popping up on our Pinterest boards, I knew I had to turn this into an inspiration post. Because, when you get down to it, coffee and weddings are both pretty amazing; add in a few handcrafted touches and the result is awe-inspiring. If you’re a coffee-addict like me, you’ll love these seven things every wedding coffee bar NEEDS to have. Enjoy!

Ribbons on the Backs of Chairs: Do This, Not That

Posted August 20, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

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?
