I Belong With You Chair Sign

Posted March 12, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

We’ve all heard the song, “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers by now. You know, the one that goes, “I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweethearrrttt…” I mean, I can pretty much bet money that every time I’m in the car there is a 50/50 chance that I’ll hear it. So, when I spotted this I Belong With You chair sign set over at Host & Toast Studio, I knew I couldn’t keep it to myself. Instead of a traditional bow, ribbon, or Mr. and Mrs. sign, give this version a try: it tells everyone ‘you’re my sweetheart’.

I Belong With You Chair Sign - Inspired by Ho Hey by The Lumineers, this set of chair signs reads, 'I belong with you' and 'You belong with me'.  By Host and Toast Studio.





Mississippi Mansion Wedding: Chelsey + Danny

Posted March 11, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Chelsey and Danny’s Mississippi mansion wedding was beautiful! Their Mississippi wedding this past summer was captured by photographer Kate from Kate Anthony Photography. Kate tells us, Chelsey & Danny were married in Holly Springs, Mississippi at the beautiful Montrose Arboretum. The Greek antebellum mansion was full of history as it was built in 1858 as a wedding present to the builder’s daughter. The mansion sits on a beautiful plot of land that was absolutely breathtaking and features 50 different species of trees. The inside of the mansion was a photographer’s dream come true: tons of beautiful natural lighting, vintage pieces galore, a spiral staircase, and tons of space. I tried to evoke the feeling of timeless romance in these photographs…”

Inn at Penn Wedding: Meredith + Georg

Posted March 5, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

Meredith and Georg’s marvelous Inn at Penn wedding is one that you won’t want to miss! The Inn at Penn in downtown Philadelphia offered a romantic and classic setting. Meredith and Georg are both big Disney fans. They incorporated some of those Disney elements into their personal wedding items and even went there for their honeymoon. Some neat DIY details done by the couple include record theme table numbers, favors, and a card station. One intriguing aspect of their wedding was the delivery of the wedding rings. Their ring bearer was actually a remote control golf cart operated by the groom. The photography team of Cathie and Al from BG Productions Photography & Videography captured their wedding. See the fun photos and get inspired after the click…

Ready for a new wedding giveaway? You’ll love today’s guest book puzzle giveaway for your wedding! What is a guest book puzzle, you ask?

Posted March 4, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

We have seen some fascinating wedding programs in the past (like these wedding programs and these, just to name a few), but this is a first! Introducing the Infographic Wedding Program, a brilliant idea put into beautiful design by B is for Brown! This infographic program will keep your guests entertained with charming, informative facts about your wedding ceremony and reception. Read on to find out more…

Infographic Wedding Program

This unique program reads like an infographic, which gives your guests background information on you as a couple, the wedding planning process, and more. It also provides information on family, bridal party members, and the ceremony. I love this program has a modern feel to it… and I love the section dedicated to wedding planning. It gives a pie graph of how much he/she planned, along with a bar chart that shows how many dresses were tied on, how many feet of bunting was made, and how many calls were made to the MOH (Maid of Honor), among other things. Plus, you can totally customize this to suit your own style and your wedding! Love, love, love.
