It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question, this time from bride-to-be, Sarah.

Wedding Card Box Suitcase

Posted August 18, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

One of our favorite parts of handmade weddings? The decor! There are so many creative twists on traditional items that we’ve been finding lately. We especially love when artists make keepsake-quality items you can use long after the wedding is over. For instance, this wedding card box suitcase over at PNZ Designs can be used to hold cards from guests, guest book notes, or pop open the suitcase and use it as a creative escort card display. The front is embellished with your monogram, etched in wood and stained to perfection. Love, love, love.

7 Tips for a Wedding Lemonade Stand

Posted June 2, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

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…

15 Creative Wedding Coaster Ideas

Posted May 16, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

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!
