Hi, loves! Emma here. If you’re reading this, you’re most likely a bride-to-be who is a) planning her wedding and b) curious about bridesmaid etiquette for the bride. I read this cringe-worthy article about a bridezilla with a capital B that really struck a chord. It’s hard to believe a bride could be such a crazed lunatic (to put it loosely), but I’m sure it happens more often than I think. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but it needn’t break character. The bridesmaids you’ve asked to be a part of your day are presumably your best friends. Sisters. Cousins. Loved ones. Don’t let this wonderful time in your life bring out the worst in you. We’ve prepared this post to keep things in perspective and stay on the good side of your wedding party. After all, it’s one day — one amazing, totally memorable and awesome day — and you’d like them to remember it just as fondly, right? Exactly. Read on to see seven things your bridesmaids need to hear you say…

Hello, hello! It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! Bride-to-be Allison is tackling some DIY projects, including her wedding invitations. She asks, “I purchased printable wedding invitations and I’m now putting together the response cards and envelopes. I need to include my return address on the envelope but I’m not very skilled with my computer and printer. Any advice?” The easiest way to add your return address to response card envelopes and other paper goods is with a return address stamp. Custom wedding stamps are designed for your event, incorporate your theme, and can be used in perpetuity. Plus, you don’t have to worry about using a computer or printer. And, unlike an address label (which we loathe for formal events), a stamp will look totally elegant and professional. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up some custom wedding stamps spotted over at Olive Berry Paper. Which one catches your eye?
