Hi, loves! Emma here. Question: are you a fan of handkerchiefs? A bridal handkerchief is usually one of those wedding day accessories you either a) need to have, as you’ll be Mrs. Waterworks all night (like me), b) want to have, as a keepsake item, or c) neither, as you didn’t really know it was a thing until we brought it up. If you’re part of the first two groups, you’re in the majority, as wedding handkerchiefs are a pretty popular item among brides — probably about as necessary as (an awesome) waterproof mascara on your big day. Tears of joy are likely going to fall on your wedding day and a handkerchief is so much prettier to have close at hand than nudging your Maid of Honor to pass over a kleenex or stashing some tissues in your own clutch purse. If you had no idea wedding handkerchiefs were even a thing to add to the list, go ahead and get it on there now! We’ll show you some examples of beautiful and affordable wedding handkerchiefs, share tips on where to store yours for the big day, and even show you where to buy wedding handkerchiefs so you can cross this off your list right now. How’s that for kicking off your weekend? Read on to find out more…

Should I wear a second wedding dress for my reception?” This is a question that rolled in from Shannon the other day and we couldn’t wait to answer it for her. Emma here and today we’re talking about if you need a reception dress for your wedding. I like the idea of reception dresses — a dressy but not overly formal second wedding dress the bride changes into after the ceremony. But to be totally and completely honest, as I always am here, you really only need a reception dress if you want one. Some reasons why a bride might wear a reception dress is if she thinks her wedding gown is too big or poofy, perhaps uncomfortable, or may get in the way of dancing throughout the night. In these cases, I say go for it! On the other hand, if you love your wedding gown and can picture yourself wearing it all day and all night, a reception dress isn’t a requirement by any means. As with all wedding decisions, the choice is totally up to you! If you want to wear a second dress for your wedding, I urge you to consider affordable options. Your wedding dress is likely one of the biggest expenses for your wedding and a second dress for your reception doesn’t have to break the bank (especially when you consider the small amount of time it will be worn). With that being said, we’ve gathered up some beautiful and surprisingly affordable reception dresses for you to consider. Oh, and another thing to consider are these wedding shoe mistakes to avoid, but that’s another topic for another day. Now, on to the dresses!
