Nashville Wedding: Autumn + Joe

Posted April 8, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Autumn and Joe’s Nashville wedding was a hit! Their Nashville area wedding has lots of lovely details that are sure to get you in the planning mood. Autumn and Joe’s event planner was Elaine from Events by Elaine. Elaine tells us, “Married on a gorgeous fall day, Autumn and Joe’s day was filled with emotion and love. Inspired by vintage elements, a pink, yellow and gray color scheme was included in the flowers and the mismatched bridesmaid dresses. The bride made the jars for the centerpieces using lace and fabric. The couple included their mothers by hanging their dresses and wedding photos for the guests to see…”

Trend Alert: Mismatched Clutches

Posted March 27, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Hi, loves! Meet the newest trend in bridesmaid gift-giving: mismatched clutches. Giving clutch purses to bridesmaids as a thank you gift isn’t a new idea, but we love this fresh approach. Instead of picking the same clutch to give to each bridesmaid, consider mismatched clutches instead: it allows you to pick a unique pattern or print that suits her unique style while tying in your color palette for a cohesive look. Ready to find out more? Read on to see a few hand-picked finds we spotted over at BagEnvy Handbags which exemplifies this trend perfectly.
