Hello, hello! Emma here and I have to say… this weekend was pretty amazing. I had the privilege of attending not one but TWO weddings (both totally gorgeous and chock-full of details, which we’ll talk about soon!) AND it was my birthday! We hope you had a great weekend, too. We’re kicking off the brand new week the best way we know how: by giving away a free prize to a lucky reader! We’ve teamed up with Toriska to offer this pleated wedding purse to one lucky reader in any color. There are plenty of shades to choose from, so there’s bound to be one that coordinates with your wedding beautifully. Take a look…

My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!

If I had to pick a giveaway that I (Emma here) would love to win, it would be this pair of tiny heart earrings. Although all of the giveaways have been supremely awesome so far, I’ve had my eye on these petite gold heart earrings for some time. They’re handmade by the talented Andrea Bonelli and they’re up for grabs to one lucky reader! Will it be you?

With this monogrammed garter giveaway going on this week (ending soon!), we thought it was the perfect time to share the latest Ask Emmaline question with you. Vanessa, asks, “I am ordering a garter online and it asks for my size. Since I can’t see it in person, I want to know where to size properly. I know it (obviously) goes on my thigh area, but do you have any tips on where to measure for a garter? Thanks!” Great question! This is a common one asked by brides, and with online ordering so readily available, it’s no wonder you want the perfect fit when it arrives. Read on to find out where to measure for a garter so you don’t order the wrong one…

Ladies: listen up! Today we’re talking about what to wear under the dress. The wedding dress, to be exact. It’s important to wear the proper wedding shapewear to get that perfect fit. Today we’re tackling underwear. Bridal lingerie. Support. Proper straps. Size. Fit. Comfort. Pulling it all in. Tying it all together. Wearing something that makes you confident. Comfortable. Happy. Hugging those curves. The proper fit is the most important thing when it comes to the perfect wedding dress and, by picking the wrong undergarments, you could be getting a less-than-perfect fit. Read on to find out what to wear under your wedding dress and why it’s important. Oh, and gentlemen, if you’re reading this, head over to this post while us ladies get down to business.

One of the best things about handmade weddings is the unique one-of-a-kind items! There are custom-made things by handmade artists that you’d never find in store. For instance, this beach wedding veil, spotted over at All For Love By Gina, is handcrafted with an authentic (+ thoroughly cleaned, mind you) fishnet-turned-wedding veil for the beach-loving bride. It has been hand-embellished with mini seashells, mini starfish, and faux pearls. This veil is a truly unique piece that will look phenomenal in your wedding photos. Take a look…

We received another awesome Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara. She asks, “Dear Emmaline, I just started shopping for wedding gowns. I’m so confused on necklines, though. There are so many and I’m unfamiliar with most of them. Any advice?” Great question, Sara! We spotted this helpful wedding dress necklines guide that we thought would help you — and many other brides! — as you shop for the perfect dress. It definitely helps to know the style you’re referring to when you speak to a designer. If I could offer some advice, it would be to try many different wedding dress necklines. After all, you’ll never really know how great a neckline can look on you unless you try it on! Onto the guide…
