Tyler Arboretum Wedding: PJ + Tushara

Posted June 10, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

PJ and Tushara’s Tyler Arboretum wedding was fantastic! Their wedding was this past May in Media, Pennsylvania at the Tyler Arboretum. The arboretum’s natural beauty was the perfect location for their outdoor ceremony and tent reception. PJ and Tushara’s wedding had many unique and beautiful elements you’ll enjoy including the tables which featured rustic chic decor. Another amazing detail was the traditional Indian attire they wore at the reception. Their wedding photography was captured by Daniel from Daniel Fugaciu Photography. See the photos and relive their special day after the jump…

7 Tips for a Wedding Lemonade Stand

Posted June 2, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Hi, loves! Happy, Happy Monday! We’re excited to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration here at Emmaline Bride with a fresh new Ask Emmaline question. But first… what do you think of wedding lemonade stands? Yay? Nay? That’s what reader Steph wanted to know when she wrote us last week. She says, “Dear Emmaline, I’m planning the bar for my outdoor wedding. I’ve heard of a wedding lemonade stand, but I have no idea what it entails. Any tips so it doesn’t look cheesy?” Thanks for writing, Steph! We, too, have been swept up in the sweet-as-sugar bar ideas popping up everywhere (like here, mostly). And, like you, we don’t think every idea is a winner (as many can be downright cheesy). We do, however, think a lemonade stand at a wedding can be a fun, festive way to incorporate a favorite summertime drink and another way to use those clever mason jars with handles. I know, I know… but bear with us on this one. As long as you follow these tips, your wedding lemonade stand will be one your guests will love…

Hanging Spheres: The Hottest New Decor Trend

Posted June 5, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Move over, poms – there’s a hot new decor trend in town! I’ve seen hanging spheres before (also called hanging string balls, but ‘spheres’ has a nice ring to it, no?) but I’ve never seen anything quite like these from The Find Sac. A & I have been discussing how we plan to update our backyard this summer. We recently hung these, I excitedly put our patio set and hot red umbrella out for the season, and I jokingly asked him 99 questions about pergolas yesterday. (I secretly just want something chic onto which I can display lanterns, poms, hanging spheres, and these for entertaining.) Anyways, all this outdoor planning has got me thinking about new trends for outdoor weddings. Paper poms and paper lanterns have been popular for years and have undoubtedly opened the door for fresh ideas yet to come to fruition. I’ll never tire of the aforementioned party decor, but I’m ready for something new. You, too? Read on for four reasons why they’re the hottest new thing in town for weddings, showers, and outdoor entertaining this summer…
