Sometimes I find ideas for weddings where I stop and think: why didn’t I do this for my own wedding? One of those ideas is a Be My Bridesmaid party where you throw a soiree and formally ask your best gal pals to be bridesmaids. The trick is to send an invitation that doesn’t reveal the ‘surprise’. See a glimpse of how Chrissy planned a chic + swanky Be My Bridesmaid party and took it to the next level in black and white with gold and hot pink sequins…

Hi, loves! Today we’re talking about what the bride needs for her wedding. More importantly, though, six things every bride needs for the morning of the wedding. Things for those endearing getting-ready photos. The hair and makeup. The excited, holy-cow-this-is-happening-today part of your big day. The Best Morning Ever. After all, it only comes around once! Read on to find out what made the list of must-haves for every bride. And, might I add, there’s a special giveaway hidden inside this post just to make it extra sweet. :) Enjoy!
5 Things Every Bride Needs: Morning of the Wedding
So, what does the bride really need? In short, these five things:
1. A Beverage
Whether she’s a coffee drinker, prefers tea, or wants mimosas on her big day, make sure they’re readily available. Some people swear by no coffee on the bride’s wedding day (making one jittery), but I have to disagree. Well, sort-of. If you’re a regular coffee drinker, you’ll want to drink the same amount as usual; otherwise, you’ll get one of those terrible caffeine headaches. If you don’t usually drink coffee because it makes you jittery, then obviously pass. And, as it goes with beverages, moderation is key: you won’t want to slam mimosas (for obvious reasons) just as you won’t want to drink too many caffeinated beverages without incorporating water to stay hydrated. And, don’t drink too many beverages right before that gown goes on. Once that is on, it’s pretty much on… and bathroom breaks in a gown are a pain in the you-know-what.

Wedding workout tips are one of the most sought-after topics on the web, and for good reason. Has there ever been a more perfect reason to get in shape than right now as you plan your wedding? When I (Emma here!) am not blogging about weddings or babies, I am workin’ on my fitness (+ eight million other things). I workout to get those endorphins pumping and feel stress-free. Fitness is so much more than being a particular weight, or looking a certain way, or fitting into a particular size. Fitness is about being healthy and feeling good about yourself. It’s about being comfortable in your own skin. Being happy. Finding your bliss. And, when it comes to a wedding workout, it means releasing those awesome feel-good endorphins to curb your wedding stress. I read a quote recently on Pinterest that said something along the lines of, “Life’s too short to be at a constant battle with yourself.” It’s true! If you’ve ever wanted to start fresh and get in shape, now’s the time: today we’re sharing a new Emmaline Bride club you’ll want to join along with motivation and wedding workout tips you’re missing. You’ll find out how to pinpoint why you want to get in shape, along with finding out the best way to stay motivated. It’s time to get energized for the big day (and feel amazing when you walk down the aisle). Ready to get started? Read on to see which wedding workout tips made the list… and, you’ll want to be a part of our brand new fitness crew! Find out more…

One of the biggest wedding etiquette issues comes down to the guest list. Who should you invite? Does so-and-so have to be invited? Do I have to invite my co-workers? It’s a sticky situation, that’s for sure. And that’s where this guest list flow chart comes in. It will help trim the guest list fat, so to speak, so you can keep your budget in check and keep smiling. This is not the end-all list (and it won’t help with each guest) but it can help for a few of those guests where you’re completely unsure whether to invite. Take a look…
