Brides: we’ve found an easy way to sparkle down the aisle! Check out these sparkly wedding shoes we spotted from Ammie & Joyce. We’ve found shoes that are blue with sparkles (two styles), one in pink with sparkles, one in silver with sparkles, and a pair of classic white sparkly wedding shoes. Whether you’re looking for the perfect pair of sparklers for your wedding day, engagement party, bridal shower, or just because, you’ll love what they have to offer! Take a look:
These are my favorite! I love this slingback style.
They look fab in pink…
And lovely in metallic silver and classic white, too!
Which pair would you pick?

What kind of wedding shoes are you wearing? I wore these. They were SO comfortable and they still sit in my closet on the shelf. I haven’t really found a great place to wear ivory shoes, so I just, you know, try them on every so often. :)
More coming up next! Make sure you’re on the list so you don’t miss it.

Detail alert: this rustic centerpiece idea features one of our favorite new finds from Featured Artist, Sweet Carolina Collective: that charming rustic table number! It’s hand-painted and sure to make a statement. This display is one example of how to assemble a rustic wedding centerpiece with a touch of vintage flair. Along with this stunning table number, the centerpiece includes old books, brass candle holders, votive candle holders, and recycled glass bottles. The lace doilies underneath add texture to the look, while incorporating that vintage-inspired feel. This is a lovely look all around!

Allison and Matt’s rustic Wilmington wedding was absolutely gorgeous! The rustic wedding was held at the Poplar Groves Plantation in Wilmington, North Carolina. Their photographer, Eric from Eric Boneske Photography, captured this wonderful couple and the entire day’s amazing moments.
Allison says, “When Matt and I met, the first thing we found we had in common was our favorite childhood movie, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, an old musical from the 50’s. The movie takes place on a farm in the country and that’s why we wanted to have a rustic barn wedding. We had visited Poplar Grove the year before, for a music festival, and fell in love with its charm! The plantation offered everything we were looking for, and at a great price! We loved that our guests were able to walk the grounds and enjoy the scenery and historical aspects of Poplar Grove!”

“The day was beautiful! Just as we imagined it! With the help of our wedding coordinator Charyl Williams from Social Butterfly Events it went smoothly and looked beautiful! We wanted our flowers to have a wildflower feel and coordinate with the bridesmaids dresses. All of the decor was handmade by Matt and I, and some of our talented friends and family which helped with the cost! Our wedding band was FANTASTIC and kept everyone on the dance floor, except when it was time to eat. We did a buffet style wedding with all southern style foods, including a pig roast, and all the food was stationed in the Barn. Everything tasted amazing and doing the buffet let people pick and choose exactly what they wanted, and eat when they wanted. It kept everyone from staying in their seats for too long.”
“My dress is an Amsale, and I purchased it at Nordstrom’s Wedding Suite in New York. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! I ordered my shoes from modcloth.com and my necklace was from BHLDN. All other jewelry I wore were heirlooms from my mother’s side.”
“All in all, the day was perfect, exactly what we hoped for! And it was all captured beautiful, by Eric Boneske and crew! We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos! They captured every little detail and we will cherish them forever!”

The ultimate light up wedding cake debuted by Disney last week and it’s pretty amazing to say the least. It uses this new patented technology called cake projection mapping. Just wait until you see it…

Hi, lovelies! Did you have a nice weekend? I did SO MANY THINGS this weekend, list-cross-off kind of stuff. I finally put a small wall gallery up the stairs. I reorganized my home office. I did eight billion loads of laundry. I did many other things. I love weekends like this — it super-charges my week for sure. I hope you had a productive weekend, too (or relaxing — depending on what you really needed!) We’re kicking off the brand new week with a gorgeous hairstyle inspiration spotted over at Hair and Makeup By Steph (whom we adore). This curly hair down hairstyle features soft ringlets in the most elegant way. It doesn’t hurt that the bride has gorgeous hair, too. Take a peek!

Hi, loves! We received this Ask Emmaline question recently from bride-to-be, Jennifer. She asks, “I’m planning a country wedding and I’m having trouble finding cheap wedding cowboy boots to wear. I also want my bridesmaids to wear cowboy boots, but I want to buy them as gifts and I can’t really afford what I’ve found. Do you know of any cheap wedding cowboy boots under $100?” You’ve come to the right place!
Oh, how we love brides in boots.
And bridesmaids in boots.
And photos like this that make us smile.
We love the trend of brides in cowboy boots (bridesmaids, too!) and certainly understand how expensive they can be. So, we’ve found three of our favorite go-to wedding boots for women that are ALL under $100. Sweet, right? Take a look…

On to the gorgeous, gotta-have-em-now cheap wedding boots! I’ve got my eye on pair #2.
Cheap Wedding Cowboy Boots
1. Coconuts By Matisse – The Gaucho Book
These cuties are light brown in color and feature a decorative stitched pattern. They also have phenomenal reviews, with one person mentioning they are ‘lightweight and comfortable’. Awesome.
2. Volatile – Arienette Bootie
These are my favorite and my top choice if I were buying wedding cowboy boots. I love the added studs. One reviewer says, “Love the color and sparkle.” Sold.
3. Volatile – The Rio Grande
I picked these as the third option because I like how they have a little something blue. What do you think of these? They’re also available in a ton of other color combinations.
Are you wearing wedding cowboy boots at your barn wedding?

You’ve heard of mismatched bridesmaid dresses, but have you heard of the maid of honor wearing a different dress? It’s a fun new trend that’s happening now and is a way to have her stand out from the bridesmaids. Here are a visuals to show you how it looks!
Maid of Honor Wearing a Different Dress
This one is especially fun because the MOH gets to wear a gold sequin dress. I want.
So, loves… what do you think of this trend?
is your maid of honor wearing a different dress?
