Coral and mint has to be one of the prettiest color palettes, especially when it comes to beach weddings. It’s soft and summery with a poppy punch of color. If you’re planning a beach wedding and need a color palette to work with, these coral and mint wedding ideas are for you! And we’ve found so many pretty handmade finds, since you know how much we love handmade weddings here. Enjoy!

Happy Friday, loves! We are kicking off this beautiful, sunny, finally-spring-like Friday morning with a pretty post on wedding invitations. We spotted these floral wedding invitations over at Whimsical Prints. Leeanna has been whipping up an extra dose of pretty this season in the form of floral patterns and prints, which, as you probably already know, is all the rage this year. Check out some of our favorite invites from her collection below!
When we showed you these shoes yesterday, we couldn’t help but follow up with a spring flower girl dress, too. AND THEN WE SAW THIS! We loved it instantly because it’s like your flower girl is dressed as a flower with this unique petal-like neckline. Take a look at this new petal flower girl dress from Beane and Co and tell us what you think!

That flower crown is cute, too! We’re not sure the exact maker of this crown, but we talked about similar flower crowns earlier this week.
You can see this dress and more here. I wanted to note that it’s made to order, which means colors and sizing are completely customizable.
Happy Tuesday, loves! After one of the coldest winters I can remember, it’s finally getting warmer around here (upper 40’s and 50’s all week long). In some places, that’s considered cold; in Michigan, that’s shorts and sandals weather. ;) Anyway, with spring around the corner, we’ll finally get to see flowers in bloom. Since we’re too impatient to wait (you, too?), we thought it would be fun to bring some spring to you, in the form of spring wedding crowns for the bride, bridesmaids, or flower girl. These floral hair crowns are already in full bloom and ready to be worn. We spotted them over at Roses & Lemons, where our friend Cecil has been busy working around the clock on this new gorgeous collection. Ready to see what’s new? You’ll love these…
This wedding cake pick is a buttercream four-tiered beauty with an unexpected garnish: lemons! For a garden themed wedding, this wedding cake with lemons is the ultimate choice. When life gives you lemons… put them on cake? YES.

This looks more like faux lemons (obviously due to their weight), but still. Lemons. Love it. You can find some faux lemons at Hobby Lobby or any craft store. I’d imagine they even have the kind that are shown above, with the green leaves (a must). Spotted via Style Me Pretty, photo: Janae Shield.

Brides: are you having an outdoor wedding? Do you need to protect your wedding cake from the elements (and worst of all… bugs)? You’ve come to the right place. We received this recent Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara, who says, “Hi, Emmaline. I am getting married outdoors this summer and will have my wedding cake on display. How do I protect it from the elements (like dirt, bugs, and leaves) without it looking tacky?” Great question! After spending money on your gorgeous cake (and having it made to perfection), the last thing you want to do is have to cover it up. For outdoor weddings, though, it’s important to protect wedding cake from the elements. Read on to see four surefire ways to protect wedding cake outdoors without stripping it of its loveliness…
Protect Wedding Cake: 4 Easy Tips
There are a few steps you can take to protect your wedding cake outdoors. Here are a few of our favorites.
Place your cake under a cake dome. This works best if you have a small one-tier cake. If you’re having multiple one-tier cakes (or pies), place on cake stands and place a dome on top of each one. See above image as an example.
2. Place Under a Pavilion or Tent.
Placing your cake under a pavilion or tent will keep it mostly clear of the elements, though bugs may still land on it and fly away. Also, be sure it’s always in the shade. You can also protect your cake from pests by placing citronella candles in luminary bags (or mason jar lanterns) along the pathway and near your tent entrance (not too close to the cake). This will deter most of the pests.
3. Create a Canopy.
You can create a canopy over your cake with netting. Attach netting to a canopy loop and hang above the cake from a hook or ceiling beams above.
Keep it on dry ice and avoid placing your cake outdoors until it’s closer to the reception time. And, be sure to avoid a filling that won’t spoil easily (buttercream if great). Once the pieces are cut and served, bring the rest indoors.
