Low Rolled Updo aka Gibson Tuck Hairstyle

Posted January 17, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

I (Emma here!) love sharing hairstyle trends, whether for weddings or just a night on the town. My favorite hairstyle as of late is the low rolled updo, also known as the ‘Gibson Tuck’. This hairstyle is ideal for medium- to long- length hair (and it looks pretty easy to do yourself). While this style is an emerging trend, it’s not anything new: it’s actually a throwback style from the 1890′s. Show it off as-is or add a gorgeous hair accessory, like an embellished headband (like the one shown below). Read on to find out more…

Posted November 9, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Happy Friday, everyone! So, I (Emma here!) need to try a new hairstyle every few months or so to mix things up. Over the last few months, I’ve been gaga for top knots, hair buns, DIY Hair Bows – even curly top knot turned side chignons (my favorite). Today, I’m here to talk about my latest hair obsession: the fishtail braid. This sweet, boho-inspired hairstyle has been gaining popularity and I see it sticking as a popular hairstyle in 2013. Whether you’re a bride-to-be looking for a perfect wedding day hairstyle or you’re like me and hoping to score a new favorite DIY ‘do, you’ll love today’s feature.

Check out an amazing how to fishtail braid video, read a few tips, and check out Real Wedding examples below. This hairstyle is perfect for weddings, special occasions, nights out on the town, and date night! I know I’ll be giving it a try this weekend myself. So… if you have questions, share ‘em in the comments area at the bottom of the most and we’ll try to muddle through together. :) (Oh, and P.S… short-haired lovelies will find some DIY fishtail braids to try, too! This style certainly isn’t for long-haired locks alone.) Enjoy!

Today we’re tackling one of the biggest wedding blunders: tan lines. Even if you’re the self-proclaimed Queen of Sunscreen, a tan line fail is bound to happen at least once in your SPF-slathering life. There will always be that cute sundress or top you just had to wear (despite the crazy neckline), or the day you miscalculated your sunblock’s life span. It happens. While not the most flattering fashion statement, tan lines aren’t the end of the world… but they are largely magnified on your wedding day. However, you can find out how to avoid tan lines with this post! Ready to discover the secret?

How to Wear a Scarf: Inspiration + Scarf-Savvy Ideas

Posted December 9, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 9 Comments

We featured a Real Wedding where the bride wore a light pink silk scarf with her wedding gown, and we remember it like the post was yesterday. The bride, Debbie, wanted a simple, sweet, and elegant wedding day look, so her light pink scarf was the perfect thing to tie into her personal style. If you’re looking for an accessory to tie into your bridal ensemble, perhaps a silk scarf is just what you need for a fun pop of color! And, if you’re not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. I love scarves and wear them as often as possible. But before I became scarf-savvy, I had that feeling where I would see pretty scarves at the store and feel like I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off… you know?

That’s why today we are helping to nudge you a little into the right scarf-savvy direction with a few tips + tricks on how to wear a scarf. Wearing a scarf around your neck isn’t the only way to work it; you can wear it around your neck, as a headband, as a wrap, as a cuff bracelet, styled into your braided hairstyle, and more. You can even decorate your reception or ceremony site with scarves… your love nest, too! Read on for plenty of scarf-filled goodness compiled just for you after the jump!

How to Wear a Scarf with your Gown

The most popular way to wear a scarf is worn around one’s neck. If you’re braving a cold wintry wedding, consider a silk scarf for a pop of color or a pretty pattern in lieu of a heavy wrap. It won’t keep you as warm as wool, but it may just be the lightweight accessory piece for which you’ve been looking. Besides, if you get a chill I’m sure your groom will be happy to lend you his suit coat, right? ;)

Here is one example how to wear a scarf with your gown. This is Debbie, the bride we mentioned early in this post:
