17 (Chic!) Chevron Wedding Details

Posted November 18, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Love chevron but you’re a pattern-commitment-phobe? No problem! Chevron is one of our favorite wedding theme ideas with its quirky zigzag pattern and versatility. The key, though, to a perfectly chevron-ed wedding is to use it sparingly throughout your decor. (Too much of a pattern can overwhelm your space.) You’ll also want to stick to one color palette for a cohesive look. Since we love handmade weddings, we’ve rounded up seventeen handmade chevron wedding details we know you’ll love. We’re also including a few wish-list worthy jewelry pieces for bridesmaids (or your own holiday wish list). Enjoy!

Wedding Vow Keepsake: What Would Yours Say?

Posted May 15, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Brides: whether you’re reciting traditional vows or personalizing your own, you’ll love this sweet idea: your personalized wedding vows as wall art! B is for Brown can turn your sweetest, most heartfelt (and sometimes hilarious) vows into a personalized wedding vow keepsake, suitable for framing and displaying in your home after the big day. This is a fantastic gift idea even if you’re reciting traditional vows at your wedding; instead, you can have these custom vows printed up and displayed at your reception for guests to read. And, while these vows will encompass your deep, sincere feelings, don’t be afraid to include a few fun and personal details, like “I promise not to hog the remote”, “I’ll try not to steal the covers”, or “I promise to sip your cocoa first to make sure it isn’t too hot for you”. One of my favorites: “Try to remember to turn down the volume on the TV when it gets too loud”. It’s fun to personalize your own! If I had to choose one, mine would say, “I promise to cover you in a blanket when you fall asleep on the couch”. I asked my husband to contribute his and his answer was… “I promise to rub your feet when you’ve had a long day.” (I know. He’s a total charmer.) OK, we’ve shared ours… what would yours say?

Top 10 Reusable Wedding Decorations

Posted November 12, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Hello, loves, and Happy Monday! We hope you had a great weekend. I (Emma here!) love Mondays in particular since we get to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration and launch a new giveaway (details on that coming up next!) This weekend, I had the honor of signing copies of my new book in lovely Northville, Michigan at Next Chapter Bookstore and Bistro. I wanted to extend my gratitude to those who came out to visit me and purchase a copy. It was wonderful to see your smiling faces!

To kick off the brand new week, we’re talking about reusable wedding decorations. Instead of buying decorations to be thrown away after your wedding, consider reusable wedding decorations meant as keepsakes in your home. To show you what we mean – and provide plenty of inspiration! – we’ve compiled ten favorite new finds. Read on to see which decorations made the list + find how we recommend using ‘em. Enjoy!

Reusable Wedding Decorations

1. Bride + Groom Custom Illustration Print

Who wouldn’t love a custom illustration made in their image? This find is one of my favorite illustrations to date. At the wedding, display on an easel for guests to view upon entering the reception; after the big day, frame and display in your love nest. Illustrated with love by Barbara Szepesi Szűcs Illustrations

Chevron Wedding Clutches

Posted February 23, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

The popular chevron print of the past has made a crazy comeback in home interior, fashion, and has made quite an impression on the wedding scene. We’ve seen chevron wedding finds popping up everywhere from table runners to wedding invitations – even chevron cake stands! – with good reason: this zig zag pattern can tie into nearly any decor and color palette. If you are planning a chevron themed wedding, consider adding an unexpected accessory for your bridesmaids like these stylish chevron wedding clutches by BagEnvy Handbags. These clutch purses feature chevron print in a few color combinations from which to choose… with larger bags available in the shop (even chevron diaper bags for those with a little one on the way!). We love the interior lining and customization to suit your favorite wedding palette. Read on for more…

How to Wear a Scarf: Inspiration + Scarf-Savvy Ideas

Posted December 9, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 9 Comments

We featured a Real Wedding where the bride wore a light pink silk scarf with her wedding gown, and we remember it like the post was yesterday. The bride, Debbie, wanted a simple, sweet, and elegant wedding day look, so her light pink scarf was the perfect thing to tie into her personal style. If you’re looking for an accessory to tie into your bridal ensemble, perhaps a silk scarf is just what you need for a fun pop of color! And, if you’re not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. I love scarves and wear them as often as possible. But before I became scarf-savvy, I had that feeling where I would see pretty scarves at the store and feel like I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off… you know?

That’s why today we are helping to nudge you a little into the right scarf-savvy direction with a few tips + tricks on how to wear a scarf. Wearing a scarf around your neck isn’t the only way to work it; you can wear it around your neck, as a headband, as a wrap, as a cuff bracelet, styled into your braided hairstyle, and more. You can even decorate your reception or ceremony site with scarves… your love nest, too! Read on for plenty of scarf-filled goodness compiled just for you after the jump!

How to Wear a Scarf with your Gown

The most popular way to wear a scarf is worn around one’s neck. If you’re braving a cold wintry wedding, consider a silk scarf for a pop of color or a pretty pattern in lieu of a heavy wrap. It won’t keep you as warm as wool, but it may just be the lightweight accessory piece for which you’ve been looking. Besides, if you get a chill I’m sure your groom will be happy to lend you his suit coat, right? ;)

Here is one example how to wear a scarf with your gown. This is Debbie, the bride we mentioned early in this post:

Tea for Two: A Handcrafted Tea Party!

Posted September 17, 2010 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

HAPPY FRIDAY, lovelies! I guess today is about a good as time as ever to let you all in on a little secret obsession of mine: tea cups. I’m not quite sure where it began, but I think it had something to do with an engagement photo shoot I spotted a year ago that spurned my interest. Since then, my love has grown into a full-blown obsession and I’m hooked. The more mis-matched and vintage, the better. I dream of super-awesomely-remodeled shabby-chic kitchen someday where my lovely teacups and saucers can not only be displayed as part of the whimsical decor but enjoyed by house guests. Ah, tea gets a pinch sweeter with fab teacups and good friends. That’s for sure.

Speaking of which… I went to a dear friend’s wedding a few weeks ago, and the lovely bride happens to be a pretty big fan of tea. To my delight, the favors were tea cups and saucers! The kicker?  Each set was totally unique, and EVERY PERSON (not couple) was sent home with their very own.  One guest at our table never arrived and I was asked to please keep theirs since they had tons of leftovers.  Would I mind? It pretty much made my night. Well, that, my ridiculously handsome husband, seeing two of my best friends get married (!), Oberon on tap (oh, YES), my sexy new little black dress, a ton of Lady Gaga, and, yes, a piece of delicious carrot cake. Game, set, match.

So, in honor of Ann & Pat, the newlyweds, and their love for tea and all things amazing (your wedding seriously rocked the house), I present to you some of the most amazing handcrafted ‘tea’ finds out there.   There’s some pretty amazing talent out there, and I sort of went a little nuts, so enjoy! xoxo
