What’s the hottest new wedding trend in decor? Tassel garland! And where can you find it? Ellenor Shop! We spotted these festive tassel garland strands there and we love what we found. These particular tassel garlands are made with lightweight plastic (not than tissue paper), which means it’s less fragile than tissue, more durable for multiple uses/parties, and waterproof. We spotted amazing combinations: hot pink + gold. Black tie tassels. Plum tassel garland with sparkly accents. Hang ‘em up as a photo booth backdrop, decorate your cake table, draw attention to your sweetheart table, or use as decoration anywhere you see fit. Also makes a lovely accent for your bridal shower or bachelorette party. Read on to see our favorites…

Grooms: now this is how to toss the garter at a wedding! Place it over a football and have the gentlemen go long. Now, obviously, you won’t want to toss the garter like this indoors (I can only imagine the accidents that would occur if someone misses), but outdoors? Tent wedding with nearby grassy open field? Game on. This idea is especially perfect if hubby-to-be is a football fan. Or, feels sheepish about flinging lingerie across a formal room to male friends, family, and coworkers.

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…

Hi, loves! Emma here. I love quirky, vintage, totally unique-inspired finds. And, when they’re related to weddings, I love ‘em even more. I spotted this unique window pane seating chart that looked like a heckofa fun project to DIY. What do you think? It combines functionality (it serves as a seating chart for guests) with rustic charm (who doesn’t love a vintage window pane-turned-decor piece?) Plus, it looks easy enough to do. Take a peek…

We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks, “I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…

One of our favorite handcrafted details for a wedding bar is a bespoke coaster. We’ve seen coasters given as wedding favors, used as escort cards, printed with a thank you message to wedding guests, and used as a unique advice guest book alternative, just to name a few ideas. A coaster is a conversation starter for guests and offers functionality as a drink ‘saver’ or label, as well as to protect a tabletop. As a drink saver, guests can place a coaster above the rim of their glass to signify the drink is still being consumed so it is not bussed. And, as a label, guests can identify a drink as theirs by writing their name on it (these are one example). A wedding coaster can also be used just as a festive addition to your decor. To inspire your reception, we’ve rounded up fifteen creative wedding coaster ideas below. Take a peek and let us know if you plan to use wedding coasters and, if so, tell us what yours will say!

Hi, loves! Emma here. I love to peruse Real Weddings like the next girl, but one of my favorite things to do is identify real (aka practical) diy wedding ideas to try. A recent favorite do-it-yourself idea comes from a Camarillo wedding that exudes vintage flair. My favorite detail? The nail and string table numbers. This is such an easy idea to tackle yourself…
