We’re excited about this post because it’s two-parted: first, it’ll help you with some fun ideas on what to pack for the honeymoon, and second, it is a giveaway from our friends over at StockinGirl! They’re giving away a pair of custom wedding stockings to one reader for her wedding day — and beyond. But first, check out the fun honeymoon accessories we spotted…
Looking for a stylish wedding gown with short lace sleeves? We have found one you’re going to love! But first, are you on the list? If not, you’re missing out!
This season, we’re seeing some refreshing new bridal gown trends. There’s low back, v-necks, sheer necklines, and this stunning dress style, just to name a few. And while long sleeves has been a trending topic for some time, it seems short lace sleeves — especially crush-worthy delicate French lace ones – is the forerunner this season.
This wedding gown with short lace sleeves was spotted at Flora and Lane and there’s a healthy mix of ultra-gorgeous details in this one. We spy a lightweight bohemian-inspired gown with french lace capped sleeves, a v-shape neckline and a tulle-layered skirt made with soft organic silk. Take a look:
If you’re trying to complete your bridal look, but you’re not sure about the veil yet, you should consider a bridal hair chain as one option. We spotted these unique hair chains over at Lottie Da Designs and we are in LOVE with how gorgeous they are! I even dare to say that hair chains might replace the veil for many brides this season. And we were happy to have found them, especially because bride-to-be, Leah, wrote to us about this very topic a few weeks ago. Leah spotted a hair chain in a wedding magazine, but forgot where it was from and wasn’t even that crazy about the particular design of that chain; instead, she wanted some recommendations for other hair chains because she loved the idea of wearing one. So, we did our best digging and found a bridal hair chain collection we knew she’d love as much as we did! Here’s what she wrote to us in our Ask Emmaline inbox:
“Hi Team Emmaline! I saw a hair chain worn by a bride in a magazine but I was wondering if you’ve seen other styles you could recommend? Also, is a bridal hair chain fancy enough to be worn instead of a veil?
Fantastic question! Anything you choose to wear in your hair is fine, as long as YOU love the look. (It’s always your day, your way… that’s our motto here at EB.) You don’t have to wear a veil — or anything else in your hair — if you really don’t want to. In fact, we love when brides opt for something that aligns more closely with their personal style, like a hair chain for a free-spirited bohemian bride or a bridal headpiece for a vintage bride. We’ve shared veil alternatives in the past, but these bridal hair chains are a new favorite of ours. Heck, I want one just to wear to a fancy dinner or soiree. Take a look at this unique new find and tell us: would YOU wear a hair chain instead of a veil?

Want new something blue ideas that haven’t been done millions of times before? You’ve found ten of them right here! But wait, are you on the list yet? Do it or you’ll be out of the loop on future posts like these.
Hi, loves! Emma here and I’m curious to know what you’ve picked for your Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and most of all, Something Blue. Because, let me tell you, many brides are skipping this tradition altogether and that’s really not too surprising. I mean, adding one more thing to your list of wedding planning to-do’s can seem a little daunting… but it doesn’t have to be. Of all the SOSNSBSB ideas, Something Blue is the most fun of them all, don’t you think? Guests are wondering, where did she hide the blue? I’ll bet she’s wearing a blue garter. Or has one of those hems. Or she put those stickers on her shoes.But we’re ready for a twist on the old tradition. We’re craving modern, NEW Something Blue ideas. We want yours to be something that haven’t been done over and over again. To inspire you, we’re sharing a list of fresh, inspiring new something blue ideas you may not have considered before. And, also, we think that any ‘blue’ rules should fly out the window. For instance, we don’t think the item has to be worn by the bride to “count”. We say, if you incorporate something blue somewhere in your day, you’re good. Because, let’s be honest, some of us don’t want a blue sash over their perfect white dress that never really needed a sash in the first place. You know?
And… to make this round-up even sweeter, the lovely Laura Stark is giving away the beautiful blue necklace shown in #1 to one lucky reader! I wish I could win this one myself, loves. So, do us proud and enter (and share it with all of your friends) because it really is a stunning piece. The full details are at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
