Hi, loves! Happy Saturday + welcome to the 2nd issue of The Weekend Edition at Emmaline Bride! (In case you missed last week, check it out here.) We know your wedding planning doesn’t stop because the weekend is here… and neither should the inspiration! That’s why each weekend we compile a huge handmade wedding round-up featuring the best of the best from the web – like handmade wedding finds, tips, DIYs, decor, inspiration, and more – to kick start your weekend into full planning mode. This week, we’re unveiling a sweet-smelling brand of soap, bridesmaid shoe-spiration, a sprinkle cake almost too good to eat (almost), a welcome tote, and much, much more (including a little something for the 4th of July). So, without further adieu, let’s get started!
Handmade Wedding Round-Up – June 30, 2012
Roll Out the Welcome Wagon
Have a few long-distance travelers attending your wedding? Welcome them with a sweet favor bag by DreamState filled with favorite local goodies.
Place Card Idea
We love this DIY terrarium place card idea by the always lovely Wednesday Custom Design. Get the full how-to tutorial here!
Who says bridesmaids have to wear cookie cutter shoes? Each bridesmaid in this Real Wedding wore a different shade. How fun! Check out more at Green Wedding Shoes.
Chalkboard Mason Jar Drinking Glasses
Add chalkboard paint to mason jars and you’ve got fun DIY drinking glasses for guests! We’ve seen these done before but we love the rustic layout and chalkboard sign (photo by SMS Photography via Intimate Weddings).
Sprinkle Wedding Cake
A decorative sprinkle wedding cake, both inside and out! You can make this cake yourself thanks to a sweet tutorial by Raspberri Cupcakes.
You Smell… Like Lemon
Now you can smell like a lemon thanks to the folks at You Smell, newest Featured Artisans in The Marketplace! Finally, a wedding favor (or bridal shower favor) that guests will actually use. Plus, how chic is the wrapping? We love it all!
Gorgeous White Sapphire Ring
Be still my heart – this ring is incredibly gorgeous. Pure perfection. By Kristin Coffin.
Skip the Veil: Halo Headband
This halo headband is one of our all-time favorites. Named “Lizzy”, this halo headband by Pretty Bloom is a perfect bridal veil alternative.
Strike a Match
Matches in a jar make a great favor, but matches in a jar with a strikeable lid? GENIUS. Thanks, The Burlap Bag!
DIY Rope Belt
Planning a nautical wedding? Gift bridesmaids with rope belts – or don one yourself – thanks to this tutorial at Sincerely Kinsey.
Kick back this weekend and give yourself a luxurious DIY scrub! Spotted via Mrs. Lillien.
4th of July Inspiration: Stars + Stripes Manicure
If you’re a nail-obsessed girl like me, you’ll love this stars-and-stripes manicure idea just in time to celebrate the 4th! By Daily Something.
