Hi, loves, + Happy Saturday! Welcome to the newest feature at Emmaline Bride: The Weekend Edition. Your wedding planning doesn’t come to a screeching halt because it’s the weekend… and frankly, neither do we. We’re constantly looking for the latest + greatest handmade wedding inspiration… so much so that we become overloaded with the goods. Beginning this weekend at Emmaline Bride, we’re offering a handmade wedding roundup to showcase the goods (like handmade wedding finds, tips, advice, DIYs, inspiration, and other hip happenings from the web) to kick start your weekend into wedding planning mode. Read on to see what we’re unveiling this week in the wedding world including a clutch purse fit for the sweetest bridesmaid, a Grammy announcement, a kick-you-know-what pair of heels, DIY lollipop favors, and much more… so, without further adiueu… let’s begin!
Handmade Wedding Round-Up – June 23, 2012
We’re kicking off this weekend’s round-up with a pastel colored 1950’s style wedding that makes our heart sing. We spotted it via Rock N’Roll Bride and we’ve never seen pastels so pretty. Photograph by We Heart Pictures.
Clutch + Portrait = Love.
We’d like to extend a high five + huge congratulations to Featured Artisan, Jami of Eclu, whose clutch purses will be featured in Emmy celebrity bags this weekend! Eclu’s collection of clutch purses are now red-carpet ready and will be in the hands of some of your favorite celebrities this weekend. Jami’s hard work and stellar craftsmanship has brought her much success, and we know this is just one exciting announcement of many to come. Congrats, Jami! In light of this wonderful news, we’re sharing these amazing clutch purses from her shop that we love! The clutch itself is gorgeous… but look closely: there’s a portrait inside!
Oh, and because we can’t get enough of Eclu’s fab collection, check out these flowers (of which we’d like in every single shade). These flowers go everywhere: clip them to your shoes, wear in your hair, pin to your blouse, dress up a gift, or decorate your space.
DIY Lollipop Favors
Up next, we’re crazy for these DIY (edible) floral lollipops that work perfectly as favors. Get the full recipe at Sprinklebakes + we challenge you to whip up a batch this weekend.
Haute High Heel Heaven
This pair is a darling little dream come true.
Brides, ditch classic nails and opt for a look that suits you best. For a girly-girl, take a cue from a chic combination of pink (with a heavy dose of glitter, naturally) spotted here.
Spotted: This ‘Rapunzel’ ring from One Garnet Girl is gift-worthy with icy clear topaz and a unique rope-like band.
Mini Ruffle Cakes… Made from Cupcakes
Turn ordinary cupcakes into miniature ruffly cakes via this amazing DIY from The Happy Home Blog. Don’t forget the cupcake stands (shown) which give these cakes an even-more-pleasing presentation.
Guest Book Alternative
Up, up, and away! This guest book alternative by Hermias Wishes is printable, which means you can print it at home immediately after ordering, ready to be used by guests!
This soft, ultra delicate garland by Renee Anne caught our eye…
Pie Serving Tips
And, last but not least, the folks at Valley & Co. share 6 tips for serving pie at your wedding – a must-read for brides who wish to skip the traditional frosting + cake.
