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…

Hello, loves! Emma here and, wow, this weekend was awesome. It was sunny, relaxing, and A + I had so much fun hanging with little man (#BabyAndrew).

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…

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!

This Fayetteville fall wedding was fantastic! Meet Blair and Jeremy. Their Arkansas wedding this past November was at a magnificent venue called The Garden Room. Their wedding has tons of rustic DIY details that are sure to get your handmade heart pumping! Look out for the fabulous details including the bouquet, boutonniere, hanging poms, invitations, and wedding cake. They even devised a great idea of having guests put money into either the bride or groom’s mason jar. The person’s jar with the most, wears the cake! It’s one of neatest ideas we’ve seen at Emmaline Bride. You’ll love their photos captured by Leah from Leah Marie Landers Photography. See them after the click…

Burlap is one of our favorite accents for rustic weddings because it is so versatile. Plus, it’s inexpensive and easy to find at any local craft store. We’ve shared many burlap-inspired ideas in the past (like these 50 must-have burlap wedding items) and accents such as burlap wedding banners, burlap ring pillows, a diy burlap table runner, adorable doily clutch purses and these burlap letters, just to name a few. Today we’re sharing burlap wedding bouquets for your bridal party and, since it’s Friday and Jane’s Daughters and The Piecemeal Shoppe are feeling extra generous, we’ve arranged a HUGE extra-special giveaway for one bride-to-be. It’s all inside (and exclusively at Emmaline Bride)…
Burlap Wedding Bouquets
Burlap wedding bouquets are an awesome alternative to traditional fresh flowers. Burlap won’t wilt, it is the perfect accent to tie into a country or western theme, and unlike fresh flowers, burlap lasts forever. You can even have your ‘flowers’ crafted in specific colors to coordinate with your wedding palette. At Jane’s Daughters, maker of stunning burlap bouquets, we spotted some in green…

Hi, loves! Happy Friday! If you’re planning a rustic, western themed wedding with plenty of mason jar drinking glasses and decor, this is the invitation for you. When you’re planning a wedding, it is important to set the tone of your theme right off the bat. And, what better way to do so than with wedding invitations? We spotted these mason jar wedding invitations at the lovely Jen Simpson Design and couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. There’s so much to love in this design, from the soft mint and coral color palette to the kraft paper envelopes — not to mention the adorable ‘carving’ of your initials into the mason jar itself! Take a closer look…
