I’ve never had hair extensions, but the idea of using them has always intrigued me. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on what style I’m going for) my hair grows extremely fast, so I’ve never considered adding hair extensions to my ‘do. However, hair extensions aren’t just for length: they can add instant oomph and volume to any wedding hairstyle, whether you wear it up or down. After receiving an ‘Ask Emmaline’ wedding advice request last week regarding the topic, I’ve made it my mission to jump head-in to this topic, so to speak. Victoria asks us, “I was wondering if you have any suggestions of clip in hair extension pieces for weddings. I’m planning on DIYing my hair. Do you know of any good wedding hair extensions that won’t break the bank? Thanks, Emmaline!” Great question, Victoria! In today’s post, we’re sharing hair extension do’s and don’ts, amazing finds for hair extension clip-in pieces, PLUS we’re giving away a pretty accessory for your hair (whether au naturale or with extensions in place). Read on to begin!

We received an Ask Emmaline question recently and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Bride-to-be, Meghan, asks us, “I want guests to sit anywhere they want at my ceremony, rather than traditionally on the right or left depending on whose family they are from. Any tips?” Great question, Meghan! A new-ish trend that we’ve seen (last year in its peak and continuing through this season) is the idea of ‘Pick a Seat Not a Side‘. Easily conveyed to guests in a sign form, this ensures guests mingle and sit together rather than moving from one side to another. Read on to see an example of this idea in action and enter for a chance to win one by the lovely Citrus Press Co.!
