I wear a top knot way too often (remember the this?), but it’s an effortless style that can be dressed up or down. I love how totally elegant it looks on this beautiful bride. If you’re wearing a top knot, I recommend going with a pair of really stunning earrings. Take a look…

What Is a Flower Hair Crown?

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…

Hi, loves! How was your Memorial Day weekend? Ours was fantastic — lots of time snuggling with little man, Andrew, who turns 2 months old today. (More details on him to come!) Today we’re bringing you a brand new Ask Emmaline question from Joshua, groom-to-be! Joshua wants to surprise his bride-to-be with a gift. Here’s what he wrote to us: “Emmaline, Help! I want to give my fiance, Jamie, a gift for our wedding. I was thinking of one of those wedding dress hangers she can hang her dress on… I saw it somewhere but can’t remember where to get one. Any tips on where to buy wedding dress hangers?” Great question, Joshua! A wedding dress hanger is an awesome gift for the bride because she can use it to display her dress on the wedding day while those getting ready photos are being taken. It’s also a wonderful keepsake for after the big day, as most wedding hangers can be customized with her name (and her new last name, if she’d like). Read on to get a glimpse of wedding hangers we love and enter for a chance to win one of your very own! Giveaways… that’s how we do it here at EB!
Wedding Dress Hangers
First and foremost, no two wedding dress hangers are the same. We’ve found a few different hanger styles from which to choose, depending on your wedding theme or personal preference. For instance, there’s a wooden hanger with metal personalization underneath which can feature her new name with ‘Mrs’ in front.
