Ready for a new wedding giveaway? You’ll love today’s guest book puzzle giveaway for your wedding! What is a guest book puzzle, you ask? Great question: a guest book puzzle is a puzzle created from a favorite photo of yours (like an engagement photo) turned into a 16×20 puzzle. Instead of displaying the puzzle assembled at your wedding, you place the puzzle pieces on a table and guests sign their names on the back. After the wedding, the two of you will put the puzzle together as you read the names (and well wishes) from guests. We’re giving away one custom 16×20 guest book puzzle by The Missing Piece Puzzle Company to a lucky Emmaline Bride reader this week… will it be you?

Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about modern ideas for something blue. We’ve all heard of the same tried-and-true ‘blue’ finds, like a wedding garter or a blue ribbon sewn into your gown. While lovely, we’re ready for something fresh + new! We’re tossing out the traditional playbook and sharing eighteen modern ideas for something blue. These finds will prove that this vintage tradition is anything but old-fashioned. Read on to see which ideas made the cut and find out how you can win something blue (or gifts for your bridesmaids) for your big day. Enjoy!
Modern Ideas for Something Blue
When I started searching for modern something blue ideas, I was amazed at the beautiful items I found. Some of the most unique ideas include a temporary tattoo, blue soled sandals, an iPhone case (for your phone in your wedding clutch), a navy blue bolero, a feminine navy blue bra, and yes — even “borrowed & blue” nail polish. I love the light blue locket (#7): I picture it wrapped around one’s bouquet and worn after the wedding. There’s a little something here for everyone… and, if I had to pick a favorite, I don’t think I could. Can you?

Brides: you’re making a grand entrance at your ceremony, but what about a grand exit? A ceremony exit is an opportunity to engage guests as you walk down the aisle for the first time as a married couple. Traditionally, guests would toss rice at the bride and groom; today, though, rice is on the outs. I’ve heard this is because rice can harm birds when ingested, but Snopes reports that it is a slip-and-fall hazard for guests. To stay on the safe side, skip rice and opt instead for one of these creative ceremony exit ideas. We’ve gathered up nine of our favorite ideas to inspire you today including a few that aren’t tossed (which means couples in all ceremony venues can participate!) PLUS, we’re announcing the next prize in this week’s giveaway lineup! You won’t want to miss it…
