Wrist Watch

Lovely Linen Wrist Corsages by EmersonMade

While corsages may remind you of a 1950s prom, they also lend an old-fashioned charm to your wedding. But instead of roses that wilt by midnight, give VIP guests a wither-free version. The custom linen flower corsages from EmersonMade look enough like the real thing, and make a perfectly preserved keepsake to wear again.

To create your unique Adore or Kiss corsages, EmersonMade’s husband-and-wife team carefully sculpts, stitches and dyes each linen bloom by hand. The shabby-chic arrangement of cloth flowers features a felt back and pin so it can be re-worn. Want more for your wedding? The company also creates a potpourri of perfect blooms for ring pillows, hair accessories, sashes and shoes.

It will be a hit – faux sure.


Get Pinned

Vintage Costume Jewelry by Carole Tanenbaum

You may think pins are passe, but consider breathing new life into an antique brooch by placing it on the stem of your bouquet. Not only will it add a bit of dazzle to your dahlias, it makes the perfect memento well after your flowers have wilted.

If Grandma hasn’t passed down one of her heirlooms, get your own from Carole Tanenbaum’s line of vintage costume jewelry. A large domed pearl pin or diamante wreath looks equally lovely on your bouquet as it will later on your cashmere cardigan. The collection includes designer stamped, limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces perfect for a bride.

It’ll stick with you.
