This Pearl Headband Will Look Beautiful in a Bridal Bun

It’s the weekend — but we know your wedding planning doesn’t come to a halt because the weekend is here! That’s why we’re bringing you inspiration all weekend long! (P.S. Are you subscribed yet?)

Today’s #HANDMADEADAY find is from ADBrdal and is a must-have for brides who want a veil alternative. This pearl headband, as worn below by a Real Bride, is designed as a long chain of pearls which are pinned on either side of your hairstyle. This means you can wear it as a wrap around a bun, as this bride did. We’ve never seen a veil alternative like this before and we are loving it. It is especially perfect for a beach themed wedding. Take a look!

Funny Groomsmen Cards He Will Actually Want to Send

This post is for our grooms! Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a post for groomsmen, wedding tips, and ideas for the bride.

When you are ready to ask your groomsmen to be in your wedding, how will you ask? If you take a cue from brides, throwing a “be my bridesmaid” party or giving them tear-jerker cards or gifts may not be what you have in mind. Guys do things differently, and we get it! Sometimes a phone call or quick chat during the football game is all it takes to have them as a part of your wedding crew. But if you want to ask more officially with a card paired with one of these awesome groomsmen gifts, we’ve gathered up some card ideas you will like. These groomsmen cards are a) totally to-the-point, b) sure to add a little humor to the mix, and c) easy to give as-is or with a gift. Read on to see which cards made the list!
