Oh, how I adore barn wedding receptions! Emma here and barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of a rustic outdoor wedding with a little extra comfort for guests. It also offers less stress for the bride, since weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet; inside a barn reception, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath an illuminated starry night sky. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings have been trending for quite awhile now and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn reception ideas for weddings to get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it! Enjoy!

8 Hot Cocoa Favor Ideas for Weddings

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! The beginning of the snow-filled holiday season always gets me in an cozy mood. It doesn’t take long to find me unpacking slippers, fuzzy socks, blankets, and holly jolly decorations faster than you can say coffee is ready. Anyway, with the frigid temps around here we wanted to warm you up with some hot chocolate favors for weddings, bridal showers, and holiday parties. We’ve found hot cocoa favors on a stick, in a cone, inside an ornament, in a jar, a tube, a bag, and a box. We’ve even found some cute wooden spoons for stirring.

Top 10 Benefits of Registering for Your Wedding on Amazon.com | Amazon Gift Registry Weddings & More

Hi, loves! Emma here and today we’re talking about the wedding gift registry — specifically, Amazon’s wedding gift registry. When I got married — which wasn’t really that long ago — our wedding registry was pretty traditional. Andrew and I registered at two big box chains and many items were only available in-store. Online shopping was somewhat popular but not as typical for bridal showers and weddings as it is today. But now, there are so many online registry options and it’s hard to know where to register. So today, we’re giving you a recommendation to make it easier. I’m sharing with you the top 10 benefits of the Amazon gift registry and why you might want to consider one for your wedding. Also, keep in mind that you can create a registry online and also have an alternate registry in-store, if you’d like. It is convenient to have two options for guests who might not shop online.

Read on to find out why an Amazon registry might be the perfect choice for you. The top reason (#1 at the bottom of this post) is one that might surprise you. And it’s pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. Enjoy!

Drink Koozies Weddings, Bachelorette Parties & Bridal Showers | By Sip Hip Hooray | http://emmalinebride.com/favors/drink-koozies-weddings/

When you think of drink koozies (aka can coolers), the first adjective that comes to mind probably isn’t the word beautiful by any stretch of the imagination. But the latest koozies on the market for use as bridal shower favors or wedding favors are exactly that! The brilliant typography, bold pops of color, charming one-liners and personalized details on these can coolers from Sip Hip Hooray have forever changed my mind. Guests will actually use these koozies again — proudly! — on patios, at the beach, on the front porch, poolside, and of course, at your wedding reception. And while many people associate drink koozies for use with beer or cider, you’ll be happy to know they’re functional on any can or bottle (including lemonade, iced tea, and your favorite soda pop). Unlike other wedding favors, these drink koozies also serve an important function: to keep drinks cold.

Take a look at these surprisingly beautiful can coolers and be sure to grab a few extra when you order. We don’t think there will be any leftovers! Cheers!

Happy Friday! If you liked our round-up of 40 alternative wedding bouquets, you’ll also love these sola and fabric bouquets we spotted at The Sunny Bee!

I adore these sola and fabric flower bouquets because they’re completely custom and lovingly handmade, right down to the colors to coordinate with your wedding. What I love most is the fact they’ll never wilt, so you’ll always have a beautiful reminder of your wedding day! And since there’s no watering required, you’ll be able to keep them looking like new for years to come — even if you have a black thumb like me! ;) I kid. But seriously, my flowers just sprang up out of nowhere and now I’m scrambling to weed, feed, and get started on spring gardening even though it snowed just a few weekends ago. I’m not ready yet! But I digress… get ready for an explosion of gorgeousness with six handpicked bouquets I know you’ll love as much as I do…
