Hi, loves, Emma here! I was browsing (okay, swooning over) the vintage inspired bridal finds over at BHLDN the other day and, holy smokes, what a collection! Instead of keeping these to myself, I pulled together a style board with vintage inspired bridal finds for a complete look. You’ll find a wedding dress, a pair of heels, a sparkly pair of sandals (girl’s gotta be comfortable!), a garter, a pair of earrings, and a fab art deco inspired clutch. I think you’ll love what I’ve pulled together! Let’s begin, shall we?

You probably won’t believe us, but spring is actually around the corner. I know. It doesn’t feel like it at all, and I (Emma here!) can’t even remember what summer feels like. I’ve reached the point this winter where I’m tired of putting on a winter coat, boots, gloves, a hat, and a scarf every time I want to go anywhere. So, I’ll be the first to say that spring can’t come soon enough! Today we’re warming you up with some hot new styles for spring and summer sandals by the lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo. We’ve teamed up with the past and we love, love, love their sandals. Read on to see five new styles for summer sandals from their collection and see which pair got the EB Editor’s Pick! Whether you’re wearing a pair of summer sandals down the aisle or on your honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll find a pair to love from this collection. Enjoy!

Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! When we spotted this sweet initial necklace with heart charm over at Ava Hope Designs, it was love at first sight.

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…

Hello, loves! Chances are when you got engaged the first thing you did was shop for your wedding gown. (I know I did!) It’s interesting how wedding magazines feature gown after gown across the cover and inside its pages, yet wedding veils don’t get nearly the same attention. And, while wedding gowns have changed dramatically over decades, the wedding veil hasn’t changed much at all. The wedding veil is still one of the most classic, elegant accessories for the bride to be – and you have to admit, there’s plenty of veil styles from which to choose. So, if you’re wondering how cathedral, chapel, ballet, and blusher veils are different, you’re about to find out… read on to see nine wedding veil styles, lengths, and get inspired with hand-picked handmade wedding veil options. Enjoy!

If you pick a pair of wedding shoes that’s uncomfortable, unflattering, or downright painful, you’ll be sorry you did. But, if you take a few of these wedding shoe tips to heart you’ll keep you feet happy, accentuate your style, and you’ll be able to dance the night away. Read on to find out which seven wedding shoe mistakes you should avoid PLUS find out which three must-have shoe accessories you’ll
want need for your wedding. But first… here are the wedding shoes I wore for Me & A’s wedding. They have a little bit of a vintage feel and I loved how simple yet elegant they were. I love the knotted detail and these were insanely comfortable. Plus, they don’t have too high of a heel (I was so nervous about tripping down the aisle). They do sit in a shoe box in my closet because I can’t bare to wear them and ruin them, but I think I’ll make an exception for our anniversary this year. :)
