Nashville Wedding: Autumn + Joe

Posted April 8, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Autumn and Joe’s Nashville wedding was a hit! Their Nashville area wedding has lots of lovely details that are sure to get you in the planning mood. Autumn and Joe’s event planner was Elaine from Events by Elaine. Elaine tells us, “Married on a gorgeous fall day, Autumn and Joe’s day was filled with emotion and love. Inspired by vintage elements, a pink, yellow and gray color scheme was included in the flowers and the mismatched bridesmaid dresses. The bride made the jars for the centerpieces using lace and fabric. The couple included their mothers by hanging their dresses and wedding photos for the guests to see…”

Silhouette Chair Signs

Posted April 4, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?

DIY Boho Wedding Bouquet

Posted March 17, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

We’re so excited to share a brand new DIY with you today! Like many of you, I (Emma here!) love flowers, but I’m no floral designer. However, when we met the folks at Bloominous and they told us about their kits, we were eager to give it a go. This weekend, surrounded by protea, roses, safari sunsets, liatris, spray roses, succulents, and more, we rolled up or sleeves and tackled our very own DIY boho wedding bouquet (and centerpiece) to prove just how easy it really is. Read on see how it’s done!

DIY Glitter Candle Holders

Posted March 15, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

We spotted these gorgeous (+ easy to do!) DIY glitter candle holders via Weddingstar and couldn’t wait to share them with you. If you need a fun + easy DIY to do this weekend, this is it! I’ve seen glitter candle holders done before, but none have resulted in such a gorgeous design worthy of your wedding centerpiece. With just a few simple supplies (you know, a little spray-on adhesive, gold glitter, and a few tealight luminaries) you can steal this look for your wedding centerpieces. I love the idea of pairing a trio of these glittery candle holders with a vase of fresh flowers. At night, they’ll look stunning with specks of gold glitter and romantic candlelight shining through.

Meredith and Georg’s marvelous Inn at Penn wedding is one that you won’t want to miss! The Inn at Penn in downtown Philadelphia offered a romantic and classic setting. Meredith and Georg are both big Disney fans. They incorporated some of those Disney elements into their personal wedding items and even went there for their honeymoon. Some neat DIY details done by the couple include record theme table numbers, favors, and a card station. One intriguing aspect of their wedding was the delivery of the wedding rings. Their ring bearer was actually a remote control golf cart operated by the groom. The photography team of Cathie and Al from BG Productions Photography & Videography captured their wedding.
