Beard Oil + Rugged Salt Scrubs for Burly Groomsmen

Brawny beard oil. Rugged salt scrub. Hardy soap. These are three gift ideas you may not have considered for your groomsmen… until today, that is. We are proud to introduce Hart + Hawthorn, the newest Featured Artist at Emmaline Bride in The Marketplace. While other couples are buying store-bought groomsmen gifts, we know better: our readers crave awesome. Unique. Handmade. Made with care. Our readers crave originality. And, that’s why we’re so excited to share the collection of rugged soaps, beard oil + other curiosities by Patrick and Yu over at H+H. Check out our favorite finds below…

Rugged Soap + Beard Oil

If your groomsmen are bearded fellows (or sport a manly mustache every so often), you’ll want to pick up a set of beard oil. These are made for manly men, in scents like birch tar, tobacco, cedarwood, and blood orange.

No bearded groomsmen in your group? Try the (manly) exfoliating scrubs instead. The most intriguing scents we’ve seen include sea buckthorn, salt of the earth, ancient ambers, and activated charcoal.

And, last but not least, don’t miss the manly bars of soap, like carbon, pumex, mineral haite, and ancient ambers, wrapped in kraft paper.

Suit Rules for the Groom

Happy Weekend, lovelies! While we tend to focus on ideas for the bride, we don’t want our grooms to feel out of the loop! Today we’re sharing an awesome post that covers twenty-seven must-have suit rules for the groom. Whether you already know ‘em all or you’re just learning how to coordinate correctly, don’t miss this one!

Suit Rules for the Groom

Since we’re not (and don’t pretend to be) suit experts here at EB, we’re going to leave this one up to an amazing post we spotted here. You’ll find out the width of the lapel, what a collar gap is, find out how long your trousers really should be, see what you need to do once you take that new suit home, and much more. You’ll find it all at 27 Unspoken Suit Rules Every Man Should Know.

We just knew this was one must-have read we didn’t want our Grooms to go without!

Enjoy your weekend and meet us back here Monday bright and early as we kick off another exciting week of wedding inspiration! Oh, and be sure to check up on posts you might have missed on our homepage — there are some great ones! xo

Happy Planning!

Pancake Wedding Cake

We’ve seen some pretty interested wedding cake alternatives in the past. Remember the Oreo Wedding Cake? The Donut Wedding Cake? And, who could forget the Cheese Wedding Cake? Today we’re adding another to our list: the Pancake Wedding Cake. Who knew flapjacks could be so chic?

Of course, you would want to serve them on a petite pedestal stand for maximum effect. And, to be honest, we think this is more of a fun idea rather than a practical one — maybe just for looks?

What do you think of the pancake wedding cake? Yay or Nay?

Happy Planning!
