Several months ago, I bought a few flower brooches in light pink, ivory, and grey. I soon found myself pinning them everywhere: my scarf, my jacket, my cardigan – I even place them on a pretty china plate on my dresser because they look so pretty as-is. So, I thought, wouldn’t flower brooches look incredible on everything wedding? I pictured flower brooch pins added to bridesmaid dresses for the perfect pop of color, pinned to a gorgeous satin ribbon and wrapped as a wrist corsage, flower brooches pinned to sashes, bridal cardigans, and clutch purses. I even pictured them pinned to shoes as flower shoe clips. So, when we spotted the new fabric brooches collection at The Blooming Thread (featured at Emmaline Bride in The Marketplace) we knew you’d fall in love with them, too. Imagine these flower brooch pins gifted in a delightful box, pinned to bridesmaid dresses, and re-worn on “girls nights” for years to come! Which one do you love most?
We’ve talked about clever bridal bouquet alternatives like brooch bouquets, button bouquets, and billy button bouquets as a way to hold on to your bouquet forever. So, why not apply the same idea to boutonnieres or floral corsages? Today, we’re bringing you beautiful handmade dahlia fabric boutonnieres which can be worn by groomsmen, by bridesmaids as wrist corsages (just add satin ribbon), or by guests as flower pins at your bridal shower. These dahlia fabric boutonnieres are handmade by When Love Happens and they are adorable. Soft dahlia petals and striped ribbon? Count me in!
Love is in the air today! The Groundhog walked out and saw his shadow (6 more weeks of winter, folks) only to climb back into his bed and tag Cupid as “it”. To kick off the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, we’re sharing these adorable fabric covered love letters by the lovely people at Duryea Place Designs. These paper mache letters are covered in a beautiful vintage-style floral paper with the edges slightly distressed to achieve a sweet, shabby chic look. This particular pattern features pretty pinks, reds, blues, and greens, but can be customized to suit a specific pattern or color scheme you have in mind – just ask! Read on to see more…
We love the smell of fresh blooming flowers (and the mere sight of a pink peony makes me especially weak in the knees), but a bouquet that lasts forever? Brilliant! Fresh flowers, while lovely, will wilt. And, days after your wedding you’ll be tossing away your bouquet in the trash. Today, however, we’re showing you how to make your bouquet last forever so you can avoid the sad toss-away dance and replace it with a bouquet that lasts forever! These five handmade fabric bouquets by Autumn and Grace Bridal are crafted with love and can be re-used after the wedding day as delightful home decor. Many years from now when your daughter asks what your bouquet looked like, you can show her in person. Who knows, maybe it will even be her special “something borrowed”! Read on to see 5 hand-picked bouquets you’ll love to hold onto down the aisle and happily ever after…
