It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! Hannah asks, “I want a pair of lace wedding shoes, but everything I’ve found is so expensive. Any tips on custom shoes that won’t cost a ton? Thanks!” Great question! One of our go-to’s for lace wedding shoes is Walkin’ On Air. Jennae and Liz are always whippin’ up pairs of pretties with lace applications for one-of-a-kind creations. And, as a bonus, they are totally reasonably priced (so you’re not forced to rethink your entire wedding budget). A pair of these lace shoes will look fantastic at all of your wedding-related events: your bridal shower, bach bash, and rehearsal dinner. Check out a few of our favorite pairs…
Lace Wedding Shoes
This pair of teal shoes is my personal favorite. I love the peep toe for showing off your pretty pedicure! And, how about this teal? Such a bright pop of color!
Their newest offering? Wedges! I love these. Reminds me of my wedges that I can finally take out of hiding this weekend. Yay for the kick-off of summer with the Memorial Day holiday!
The difference between a boring wedding favor and a brilliant wedding favor is handmade decoration. Today, we’ll show you how to decorate wedding favors with handmade wedding embellishments and ideas from A to Z. This guide will teach you how to decorate wedding favors that are more fun to make and more memorable for guests, too. Enjoy!
Burlap fabric can be wrapped around any favor to tie in nicely with a rustic wedding. Consider burlap coffee favors or salt water taffy placed in a small burlap drawstring bag. Try BurlapFabric.com which offers tons of crafting supplies with burlap as their specialty! (They are a sponsor but we also whole-heartedly adore their selection, regardless.)
Favor tags are more decorative with calligraphy! Hire a calligrapher or try your best penmanship with a decorative calligraphy set. Hand-written tags takes more time, but it is more personal.
A paper doily dresses up any favor and does double duty as a name tag. Place on a box tied with string or attached to a favor with a clothespin; write the guest’s name in the center.
It takes longer to do, but handmade wedding favors are more memorable. And, they’re fun to make! Call your bridesmaids over for a favor-making party. Make sure you stamp each favor so guests know the love + care added to each one.
Create a wedding favor in a jar (think s’mores in a jar or rainbow cake in a jar) for guests to reuse after the wedding. Or, place smaller favors like candy in nostalgic miniature mason jars to make them look even sweeter.
Add a decorative stamp to a kraft paper bag, box, or hang tag using a thematic wedding element. Better yet, select a stamp with your face right on it! It’s reusable after the wedding on all correspondence. How fun!
These colorful dandelion fabric flower brooches + pins are so fun! Pick your favorite two colors and wear together – or mix it up! We think this would be perfect for your flower girl or as embellishments on tote bags and shoes. Pick your favorite two colors for a fun pair that can be worn together or separately!
