Happy Weekend, loves! This weekend, hold on to summer just a little bit longer… spend the evening at a bonfire, toasting marshmallows, or walking along the seashore. Before we know it, Fall will be at our beckoning call and if we don’t enjoy the summer right now, it might just pass us by! Welcome to The Weekend Edition at Emmaline Bride, a visual inspiration handmade wedding feature that finds the best of the best – say, pumpkin pie favors for fall, a cute idea for guests who can’t attend your wedding, a pair of comfy bridal slippers, a DIY hairstyle to try (and more!) – just to name a few. If it was share-worthy, it made the cut! So, pop those peepers, grab a giant cup of coffee, and jump right in as we dazzle your wedding senses. And… go!
Handmade Wedding: The Weekend Edition – August 25th
We begin the list with one of my ULTIMATE favorite types of rings (besides a traditional diamond, of course): the herkimer diamond. These pretty little rings are incredible… and, I swear I’ll buy one someday. Until then, I’ll just dream of this one by Lumafina…
Don’t let your bridal feet get sore! Try out a pair of these comfy cuties instead.
Great idea: if someone can’t attend your wedding, snap a special photograph in their honor.
Here’s a new hairstyle up-do to try: the inside-out french braid!
This clutch makes a great bridesmaid gift…
This creative chair sash adds glam to any space, particularly for the hot pink-loving bride.
A sweet anniversary gift…
A sweet treat for fall: mini pumpkin pies!
To get guests talking (+ break the ice a bit), check out this conversation starter! It would be fun for the couple to read after the big day.
I’m admittedly posting these homemade pretzels as a fun wedding treat idea (place in brown wrapped bags and sprinkle with salt for a sweet homemade favor), but also so I can remember the link to make these at another date. I LOVE those mall pretzels and would rather make them at home… here’s how, thanks to Fifteen Spatulas – looks delish!
I love watercolor wedding invitations (well, watercolor anything it seems lately!) and these caught my little eye…
Coral and aqua is one of my favorite color combinations. This dress sash = perfection.
Fresh flowers wilt, but this paper dahlia centerpiece can last through the entire night (and afterward, too!)
And, last but not least… check out these DIY wedding favors thanks to a sweet template by Magpie Paperworks:

That wraps up The Weekend Edition for this week! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and meet us back here bright + early Monday morning as we embark on another exciting week of handmade wedding loveliness. (In the meantime, go shopping – you’ll love the new look of The Marketplace!)
