Flower Inspired Rings for Bridesmaids

Spring and summer flowers are finally in full bloom and as gorgeous as ever. I took a break from gardening last year when Andrew was a baby, and this year I’m getting back into it. I don’t quite have a green thumb — but I’m learning. The key to gardening, I’ve learned, is patience. So while I patiently wait for my pink peonies to bloom, I’ve distracted myself with pruning the roses, having fun with Little Andrew while he plucks the purple flowers from my chives (and hands it to me with a smile on his face — awwww) and, you know, finding floral inspired pretties like this adorable wallet, or wifey mug, these rustic chic floral invitations we featured yesterday, these bridesmaid clutches and today’s feature — flower inspired rings handmade by The Manerovs Workshop. This daisy ring is my favorite — and you can have it in full-bloom, all year long. No pruning needed. ;) I think these make a cute gift for your bridesmaids, especially for a bohemian inspired wedding or garden wedding. Which one do you love?

These flower inspired rings are realistic: almost as though you plucked a daisy and wrapped it around your finger.

Paper Flowers for Wedding Decor, Centerpieces & More

One of our favorite new trends — well, it’s been trending for awhile, but it’s still on point this season — is paper flowers as decor throughout your space. We’ve seen paper flowers along the aisle, as ceremony backdrops, at the head table, as centerpieces for receptions, adorning a cake, and more. Paper flowers are in — and they aren’t going anywhere for a long time to come.

These Flower Vase Favors are Brilliant — Here’s Why

When we received this question from bride-to-be, Amy, we couldn’t wait to share what we found with you! Here’s her question, submitted to us on the Ask Emmaline inbox:

Hi Emmaline! I am looking for wedding favors that can also add to our decorations. I was thinking of giving flowers since we’re having a bohemian rustic wedding and we’ll be using wildflowers throughout. Do you have any advice on how to give flowers as favors? What container to use, how big they should be, etc.? Thanks!

We love the idea of giving flowers as favors, Amy! It’s a thoughtful gift guests can actually use, which is our favorite kind of favor! When giving flower favors, be sure to provide a small glass or bottle. A tag is also appropriate, so guests know they’re favors and should be taken home. They should also be kept fresh before placing on tables — and when it comes to the flowers you pick, anything goes! On our quest for the perfect flower favors, these flower vase favors from JoBlake came to mind. We love ’em because they are essentially THREE wedding details in one: they’re 1) favors, 2) place cards, and 3) decorations. Talk about a time (and money) -saver! Individually, they’re lovely decor pieces; in a group, they’re visually stunning! Plus, they can be used for your wedding reception or bridal shower. Take a look:

We love these because they’re handmade + chock full of love. Joanna, the designer, even made these for her own wedding. TIP: She said her mother-in-law stored her flowers in the fridge and put them out in the vases the day of the wedding to keep them fresh.
