Hey, loves! This Ask Emmaline question comes to us from Bethany regarding bridal rompers for getting ready the morning of the wedding. She says,

“I am looking for what to wear while getting my hair and makeup done before my wedding and before I put on my dress. I want my photographer to take photos during this so I’d like to wear something pretty (before putting on my dress). I saw a bride wearing what looked like a white one-piece in a photo on Pinterest but do you know what they are called or where I can find one like it? Any suggestions on what to look for? Thanks!”

Hi, loves! Emma here and if you’re worried about how safe it is to buy wedding dresses online, you’re not alone! Today’s bride wants instantaneous results. You don’t have time to run from shop to shop; you want to see everything right at your fingertips — and I totally get it. It’s amazing how easy it is to buy anything online. This is coming from the girl who orders this in bulk online (and I’m not even embarrassed to admit it because it is so convenient). I buy amazing socks like these that I can wear all winter long because it keeps your legs warm! (They’re brilliant.) I stock up on k-cups so I don’t ever have a coffee outage.

Buying things for your wedding is the same way. I talked to a couple who recently got married and it was incredible the number of things they bought online, sight-unseen. Almost everything was ordered online, from the table runners to the votive candles to these invitations. Even the bridesmaid dresses were ordered online! Things like digital proofs, super-helpful product reviews, and two-day shipping have made buying wedding things online super convenient, so why should wedding dresses be excluded from the list? With resources at your fingertips like The Marketplace filled to the brim with handmade dresses and accessories, along with sellers on Etsy and Amazon unveiling new collections all the time, it’s easier than ever to buy everything for your wedding online…

Do You Wear Two Garters for Wedding?

We’re answering an Ask Emmaline wedding question this morning to kick off your Friday! Bride-to-be Shelley asked us why brides buy two garters. The answer is simple — one garter is for the bride to wear, while the other is to be tossed at the reception. Technically, the bride wears both during the day, so the tossing garter is easily accessible when it’s time to toss it. You can usually purchase a set of two garters together, depending on where you buy, and typically you’ll find that the tossing garter is smaller and less detailed than the bridal garter.

And… if you don’t care about keeping your own as a keepsake, that’s fine, too! All you need to do is buy one, toss it, and be done with it. Simple as that! While we’re on the topic of garters, here are a few we recently spotted to inspire you…

What to Wear Instead of a Veil – Ask Emmaline

It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! Bride-to-be, Michele, asks:

“Help! I’ve tried on a few wedding veils in a store but I didn’t like how they looked. I don’t think a veil is my style and I just don’t see myself wearing a veil at my wedding. Does a bride have to wear a veil? Or is there something else I can wear as an alternative?”

Fantastic question! For starters, you asked if the bride has to wear a veil. Remember that it’s your wedding: there are no rules. A bride doesn’t have to do anything or wear anything that she doesn’t want to, so a veil is definitely not a requirement.

Now, before we show you some wedding hair accessory options, if you try on a veil in store make sure you also…

1.) try on a veil while wearing your dress (or a similar style)
2.) try on the veil with a hairstyle you plan to wear the day-of
3.) try on several veil styles

The third one — trying on several veil styles — is especially important because one style can look better on some people than others. Your face shape, hairstyle, dress, and personal style are all factors when it comes to picking the perfect veil — or veil alternative. Also, trying on many different veil styles to see which one you like best is also a great rule of thumb. For example, a bandeau veil — like this one, shown below from Serephine — is a unique veil style that differs greatly from a traditional, classic look.
