What Is a Flower Hair Crown?

First things first: what is a flower hair crown? A hair crown, in this case with flowers, is a bohemian bridal veil alternative that can be worn by the bride on her wedding day. Instead of a traditional veil, a bride wears a hair crown usually with a more casual hairstyle. Here are a few examples of flower hair crowns we think you’ll love…

Posted June 3, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Hi, lovelies! Looking for a fun alternative guest book idea? We’ve found it! Introducing the wedding pinata, one of the latest-and-greatest guest book alternatives we’ve seen yet. Instead of a traditional guest book, each guest writes a message (a joke, a note, well wishes, or words of advice) on a piece of paper and places it inside the piñata. On your one year wedding anniversary, break open the piñata to discover heartwarming messages left by guests. Fun idea! Find out more about the wedding pinata and get inspired with a few handmade finds!

Magnolia Single Stem Bouquet

Spotted: this magnolia single stem bouquet proves that you don’t have to go big to make a statement. Instead of carrying a huge bouquet of flowers, consider one large bloom – like a magnolia, for instance – as a single stem bouquet.
