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.

Hi, loves! Emma here. The angled bob wedding hairstyle is one of my favorite styles, for weddings and for everyday. I swear, I’ve been trying to grow my hair out for a little while now but whenever I see wedding hairstyles like this, I start thinking, hmm, just a little trim? ;) An angled bob wedding hairstyle is a cute cut for short to medium length hair and is pretty low maintenance. Once you have it styled like so, you can add a pretty hair accessory like a pin or birdcage veil to finish the look.

Hi, loves! Emma here. Can I tell you a secret? I’m loving these wedding hairstyles, but I am secretly having trouble coming up with unique, totally-captures-the-look names for these styles. I mean, seriously, how many times can you say something is a pulled back updo and make it sound unique? Ah, well. Updos are pretty similar, you have to admit, but today’s sleek updo is one of our favorites for a traditional wedding. I love the way the bride’s hair is pulled away from her face, highlighting those earrings and that neckline! Oh, and that dress! It’s gorgeous. Take a look…
