Hi, lovelies! Emma here. If you follow the old custom of something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and this for your shoe, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered up the best, most modern something blue ideas — thirty-two in all — to tie into your ceremony. We begin with one of the loveliest clutch purses ever…
Something Blue Ideas
1. Clutch Purse
Carry a clutch purse in your favorite shade of blue. Or, pick a purse with a beautiful blue brooch or floral clip attached to the outside; an inner liner of blue is another fantastic something blue idea.

It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! We received this question from bride-to-be, Lana, who asks, “Dear Emmaline, I’m planning my wedding and my parents have been so helpful, especially my mom. She has been helping with every DIY detail, even taking some of the bigger projects (my centerpieces) to eliminate my stress. I want to thank my parents for all they’ve done for our wedding; any advice?” Fantastic question! You can never thank your parents enough for all of the wonderful things they’ve done for you, and your wedding is no exception. Whether they are contributing their time, money, support, or they’re just being totally awesome per usual, it’s important to thank your parents at your wedding. In this post, we’re sharing some of our favorites ways to thank your parents at your wedding PLUS we’re giving away one of our favorite finds by Paper Street Press!

These carefully selected items are what we feel will keep you happy, pain-free, and embarrassment-free, too. We could always add more to the list – like mascara, and eye makeup remover – but we’re focusing more on things you’ll want to keep on hand. What would you pack in your wedding bag if you only had room for seven things? Here’s what made our cut…

Happy Tuesday! There are few things I (Emma here!) love more than DIY projects turned heartfelt gifts, which is why I’m excited to share our exclusive new DIY project with you today. Our DIY wedding hankie can be tied around your bridesmaid’s bouquet as a wrap, placed in her clutch purse as a personalized accessory, or wrapped around a jewelry gift + tied with ribbon as functional, re-usable gift wrap. It can be wrapped in a ribbon and gifted to your mom, grandma, or aunt (to catch those joyous tears). And, it can be placed in your own clutch purse just in case you need it during the ceremony. Hankies are inexpensive (around $4 for a pack of six) and its uses are endless. This DIY wedding hankie project costs little out of pocket, requires little know-how (beginners: rejoice!), and there is almost no clean-up. Plus, you’ll have an excuse to buy a few new crafting projects for your DIY arsenal: I swear, these little alphabet stamps are used by me almost daily. So, if you’re ready to get started, read on to find out how to craft these beautiful bridesmaid hankies just in time for those joyous tears! Enjoy!

Happy Friday, loves! If you’re recently engaged and wondering how to ask your best girlfriends to be bridesmaids at your wedding, we found a charming idea! The lovely Allie Ruth has created a fun way to ask your girls with this “will you be my bridesmaid handkerchief”. We love this idea for many reasons: first, it is functional. This ‘card’ won’t be tossed into the trash, never to be seen again; instead, it will continue to be a facet of your best friend’s purse, cosmetic bag, or sock drawer. Second, it is unique: each vintage handkerchief is hand-picked by Allie, so no two are the same. Third, it won’t get washed away in the machine, since she uses high-quality ink to print on each. And, finally, it can be used as a decorative wrapping around a pair of earrings, necklace, or a chic headband, tied with a pretty ribbon. We love it all the way around! But, don’t just take our word for it… see for yourself!
