How to Style Short Hair for Weddings

posted on April 13, 2012 6 Comments

Short hair brides: this is your lucky day! Today we’re showing you how to style short hair for weddings with a few of our favorite hand-picked Real Wedding + handmade inspiration from around the web. It seems like magazines + blogs tend to cater towards brides with longer locks, and that just isn’t fair. I (Emma here!) used to have super-short hair (almost pixie-cut-esque) so I know first-hand that finding short hairstyles isn’t the easiest thing to do. That’s why we’re sharing a little love for our short hair brides with some of the sassiest, sweetest short hairstyles we could find. If you rock a short head of hair, use it to its fullest, sassiest advantage: wear a small hair accessory or veil to show off those strands. Or, skip the accessory altogether. Read on for tips on how to style short hair for weddings + images to inspire you…

Tulle Bridesmaid Skirt

posted on April 13, 2012 7 Comments

Happy Friday! Today, we’re encouraging you to think outside the box with a tulle bridesmaid skirt instead of a traditional bridesmaid dress. Wear again? Yes! Colorful? Of course! Boring? Never! Simply pair a tulle bridesmaid skirt with a re-wearable tank, blouse, or lacy top – all of which she can wear again – as an alternative to a never-wear-again dress. Today, we’re sharing some tulle bridesmaid skirt inspiration with you from a few handmade artisans. Read on for more…

Tulle Bridesmaid Skirt

This first example reminds me of the movie, Bridesmaids! The killer heels + tank tops are killer… and the bride striking up a pose (in a tulle skirt of her own!) is priceless.
