How to Plan a Rustic Fairytale Wedding

Posted June 25, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 9 Comments

Hello, loves! Today we’re sharing some delightfully rustic inspiration in the form of a rustic fairytale wedding theme. But first… I recently went camping and my almost seven-year-old niece taught me a thing or two about fairies. At the campfire, she looked into the woods and pointed at brief sparks of light. These sparks – lightning bugs, naturally – are not lightning bugs. They’re fairies. Acorns? Fairy hats. Holes in the tree? Fairy houses. Moss? Moss is just moss. (I thought – pixie dust! – but she informed me, “No, Aunt Emma, that’s just moss.” Bless her heart.) I wanted to share that story to remind you that a wedding theme can be ANYTHING you dream it to be. A fairytale wedding doesn’t have to be all Cinderella carriages, castles, and crowns. If you’re an eco-bride, would prefer a position as princess of the woods vs. the ballroom, and you need some serious inspiration for a unique wedding theme, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re sharing an exclusive Enchanted rustic fairytale wedding shoot by a stellar team of wedding pros with photography by Jessy Carté. So, without further adieu… let’s get started!

8 Awesome Paper Flower Bouquets

Posted April 4, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Hello, hello! One of the many, many reasons I (Emma here!) love handmade weddings is the use of sustainable, re-usable decor. Take flowers for example: you love their bright colors and fresh aroma, but what happens after the wedding is over? All florals and boutonnieres are tossed in the trash! What if you could have an alternative that lasts forever instead? Today, we’ve found it! We’re showing you some of the most incredible paper flower bouquets we’ve ever seen by The Little Red Button, a sweet handmade shop that provides paper flower bouquets, paper boutonnieres, paper flower corsages, and more for weddings. This handmade alternative lasts forever and can be re-used in your home as chic decor. These bouquets are even more incredible in person (Atlanta brides may remember this at the Bridal Extravaganza), if you can even believe it! Read on to find out more about these paper flower bouquets and get inspired for your handmade wedding! Enjoy!
