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). He’s smiling so much and making all kinds of cute facial expressions! Ah, but I digress. We’re excited to kick off a brand new week of wedding inspiration with you, starting with invitations — the first place you’ll set the theme for your wedding. And, once you pick the perfect wedding theme, the rest of the details will fall right into place. These unique wedding invites — spotted over at WildHeart Paper — are designed for a particular theme, including modern, nautical, rustic, shabby chic, and classic, just to name a few. We’ve hand-picked our favorite invitations from WildHeart Paper below and we’re pleased to announce they are the newest Featured Artisan at Emmaline Bride in The Marketplace! Be sure to stop by + say hello in their shop! Begin browsing the invitations below…

Shabby Chic Wedding Garters
1. The Emma
Up first, we have the ‘Emma’. I promise I didn’t pick it to be at the top because of its name (well, okay, half-promise). I love this color… and the rhinestone detail is the perfect touch.
Hi, loves! Oh, how we’re crazy over handmade wedding finds at Emmaline Bride… especially hair accessories. Yesterday we talked about wedding veil alternative ideas we knew you’d love and we had to omit one of our favorites: hair combs. That’s because today we’re sharing an exclusive vintage inspired hair comb giveaway for one lucky reader by Jewelsalem! We’ve hand-picked a few of our favorites to show you, but we want to know which one you love most… read on for the full scoop!
Vintage Inspired Hair Combs
These handmade wedding hair combs are crafted with care and are customized in your choice of colors. A hair comb makes a great gift for the bride, her MOH, or flower girl. You can wear a hair comb as a chic wedding veil alternative (or remove your veil and wear the hair comb for your reception).
Brides: are you planning / considering / dreaming of a shabby chic wedding? You’ve come to the right place! We’ll show you how to plan a shabby chic inspired linen and lace wedding using handmade accessories. Whether you need a stunning lace gown, a linen handkerchief for the groom, a linen flower girl dress and basket, ring pillow, or backdrop decor for your reception, you’ll find it all right here. A linen and lace wedding falls under the wedding theme of ‘shabby chic’. We recommend using linen and lace wedding accents with other shabby chic details (see the DIY shabby chic photo display, shabby chic wedding, and 5 shabby chic wedding ideas for inspiration). And, since linen and lace are neturals, don’t be afraid to add in pops of color throughout your decor to keep things fresh + exciting. Ready to get started? Read on to find out more… and, while you’re at it, try to guess which one of these items is up for grabs in our newest wedding giveaway!
Linen and Lace Wedding
The easiest way to tie lace into your wedding ensemble is with the gown, of course! This lace wedding dress (spotted at Grace Loves Lace) is one of my favorites. The lace veil, lacy wedding necklace (for yourself or your bridesmaids!), lace embellished heels, a garter, linen and lace wedding hair flower, and a coordinating clutch purse make lovely accents for this theme.
Brides: whether you’re still deciding on the perfect wedding theme or it’s already picked, you won’t want to miss this post. We had a huge response to the clutches in yesterday’s art deco wedding post, so we decided to expand the offering to wedding clutches by theme… over fifty wedding clutches in eight wedding themes, to be exact! You’ll find wedding clutches by theme for your nautical, boho, beach, shabby chic, rustic, modern, art deco, or classic wedding. Plus, we’ve teamed up with Oatmeal Lace to offer a gorgeous wedding clutch to one lucky reader. Which one is it? Read on to find out!

1. Pink English Rose
This pink and lace ring bearer pillow is one of my favorites from the collection. I love English roses, and this one features a big bloom in pink right on the front. The touch of lace is beautiful, too.

If you’re looking to add a shabby chic or vintage touch to your reception decor, her shop is the go-to place! Read on to find out three ways to use painted mason jars in your wedding reception decor… and beyond!
