Hi, loves, Emma here! I was browsing (okay, swooning over) the vintage inspired bridal finds over at BHLDN the other day and, holy smokes, what a collection! Instead of keeping these to myself, I pulled together a style board with vintage inspired bridal finds for a complete look. You’ll find a wedding dress, a pair of heels, a sparkly pair of sandals (girl’s gotta be comfortable!), a garter, a pair of earrings, and a fab art deco inspired clutch. I think you’ll love what I’ve pulled together! Let’s begin, shall we?

You probably won’t believe us, but spring is actually around the corner. I know. It doesn’t feel like it at all, and I (Emma here!) can’t even remember what summer feels like. I’ve reached the point this winter where I’m tired of putting on a winter coat, boots, gloves, a hat, and a scarf every time I want to go anywhere. So, I’ll be the first to say that spring can’t come soon enough! Today we’re warming you up with some hot new styles for spring and summer sandals by the lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo. We’ve teamed up with the past and we love, love, love their sandals. Read on to see five new styles for summer sandals from their collection and see which pair got the EB Editor’s Pick! Whether you’re wearing a pair of summer sandals down the aisle or on your honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll find a pair to love from this collection. Enjoy!

I’ve never had hair extensions, but the idea of using them has always intrigued me. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on what style I’m going for) my hair grows extremely fast, so I’ve never considered adding hair extensions to my ‘do. However, hair extensions aren’t just for length: they can add instant oomph and volume to any wedding hairstyle, whether you wear it up or down. After receiving an ‘Ask Emmaline’ wedding advice request last week regarding the topic, I’ve made it my mission to jump head-in to this topic, so to speak. Victoria asks us, “I was wondering if you have any suggestions of clip in hair extension pieces for weddings. I’m planning on DIYing my hair. Do you know of any good wedding hair extensions that won’t break the bank? Thanks, Emmaline!” Great question, Victoria! In today’s post, we’re sharing hair extension do’s and don’ts, amazing finds for hair extension clip-in pieces, PLUS we’re giving away a pretty accessory for your hair (whether au naturale or with extensions in place). Read on to begin!

As it starts to get ridiculously chilly outside — especially here in the Midwest — we thought it was a great opportunity to share bridal cover ups for winter weddings. When A & I got married, we chose an early December wedding in Michigan. We lucked out with pretty gorgeous weather for winter, along with a little sprinkle of snow as we exited the church after the ceremony. I chose a faux fur stole and it was the perfect accessory to keep my shoulders warm. However, anytime from October through March is anyone’s best guess at how chilly you will or will not be in your wedding gown. And, like Halloween when your mother made you wear a jacket over your costume, no one wants to cover up their gorgeous dress. In this post, you’ll find a few hand-picked suggestions for bridal cover ups that will warm you up without ruining your style. Plus, we’re giving away a wearable item for the bride to wear while running errands, lounging, and wearing on the honeymoon by ArenLace. Read on to find out more…
