Good morning, loves! Well, get ready to be inspired because, like I said yesterday, these wedding hairstyles are getting to be pretty amazing. Today we’re featuring a ribbon updo: a wedding hairstyle with a soft ribbon wrapped right through it and worn in the front like a halo headband. (You might remember this similar ribbon braid we talked about before. Cute, right?) I thought this one was my favorite, but today’s pick is totally taking the cake. So, what is a ‘ribbon updo’? See for yourself…

We received another awesome Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara. She asks, “Dear Emmaline, I just started shopping for wedding gowns. I’m so confused on necklines, though. There are so many and I’m unfamiliar with most of them. Any advice?” Great question, Sara! We spotted this helpful wedding dress necklines guide that we thought would help you — and many other brides! — as you shop for the perfect dress. It definitely helps to know the style you’re referring to when you speak to a designer. If I could offer some advice, it would be to try many different wedding dress necklines. After all, you’ll never really know how great a neckline can look on you unless you try it on! Onto the guide…

Good morning, loves! I was just talking about how today’s coffee tastes more like eating chocolate for breakfast and less like the black coffee that it is. Yum, mocha swirl. Totally recommended. Anywho, we’re continuing our series on 31 wedding hairstyle ideas and this is one of my favorites yet! It’s a relaxed updo with braid on top, as featured in the bride (Megan) below. I love how the bride had a formal pulled back look but was able to tie in a casual, chic braid, too. It’s the best of both worlds! This relaxed updo was styled by the awesome Ashley Fisher of Ash and Co. Take a look…

Brides: guess what? A bridesmaid dress doesn’t have to be made of taffeta or be constructed with layers of itchy tulle. Picking the right bridesmaid dresses doesn’t have to be a battle between big bows on the butt or poofy sleeves (both of which should be banned). The perfect bridesmaid dress doesn’t have to be pricey, and it doesn’t have to turn you into a Bridezilla monster. Read on to see how picking the right bridesmaid dresses can be a fun + enjoyable experience for all. Also, get inspired with some of our favorite bridesmaid dresses from crush-worthy designer, LHC Couture! It’s all right here…

Hi, loves! Happy Sunday! We’re popping in to share the newest in our wedding hairstyle ideas series: day six! But first… I (Emma here!) have always admired Keri Russell, ever since her days on Felicity. I can only imagine she’s probably tired of always being typecast in that role as Felicity Porter, since she’s so much more than that: she’s an actress, yes, but a mother, wife, and heck if she isn’t a beauty and fashion icon. Her wavy locks sent many girls wishing she had curly hair (some of us, ahem, even went out and got a perm), while chopping her locks into a cute short ‘do sent shock waves through Felicity fandom. Anyways, I digress… today we’re sharing a photo inspiration of the lovely K. Russell wearing one of our favorite hairstyles for short-haired brides: short layered curls. This is a hair down style, which can be more casual (when worn down without a veil or accessory) or dressed up (with a decorative pin, barrette, or birdcage veil, just to name a few). Take a look for yourself…
