Hi, loves! Emma here and if you’re worried about how safe it is to buy wedding dresses online, you’re not alone! Today’s bride wants instantaneous results. You don’t have time to run from shop to shop; you want to see everything right at your fingertips — and I totally get it. It’s amazing how easy it is to buy anything online. This is coming from the girl who orders this in bulk online (and I’m not even embarrassed to admit it because it is so convenient). I buy amazing socks like these that I can wear all winter long because it keeps your legs warm! (They’re brilliant.) I stock up on k-cups so I don’t ever have a coffee outage.

Buying things for your wedding is the same way. I talked to a couple who recently got married and it was incredible the number of things they bought online, sight-unseen. Almost everything was ordered online, from the table runners to the votive candles to these invitations. Even the bridesmaid dresses were ordered online! Things like digital proofs, super-helpful product reviews, and two-day shipping have made buying wedding things online super convenient, so why should wedding dresses be excluded from the list? With resources at your fingertips like The Marketplace filled to the brim with handmade dresses and accessories, along with sellers on Etsy and Amazon unveiling new collections all the time, it’s easier than ever to buy everything for your wedding online…

Hi, there. Happy Thursday! I like to visit fashion blogs and Pinterest boards, getting the scoop for the latest + greatest fashion trends. But it drives me nuts when I see a gorgeous outfit pieced together with one specific item I want and it doesn’t mention where to get it. And then I Google it and I can’t find the item, or I do but it is SOLD OUT. Bummer. I know it happens: I’ve seen some Real Weddings with amazing boho bridesmaids dresses but sometimes you can’t find the original designer or bridesmaids picked them out themselves it’s nearly impossible to contact them to find out where they were from. Articles can suggest similar pieces all they want, but are they ever really close enough? Never! At least I don’t think so.

You can imagine my excitement, then, when I found the perfect boho bridesmaids dresses that I knew you would love, along with a link to buy them + tons of color options + an affordable price. If you are looking for free-spirited, flowy boho bridesmaids dresses and you want to keep bridesmaids happy, you’ve come to the right place. These bohemian inspired bridesmaids dresses are reasonably priced (under $100!), are available in a few beautiful shades, and you can get this taken care of by this weekend. Ready to cross bridesmaids dresses off of your long to-do list? Let’s go!

First things first: these boho bridesmaids dresses are from Vintage Summer on Etsy. With awesome reviews and beautiful photos, I felt comfortable referring them to you. I always check reviews — you never know, and I’d hate to leave you astray with such an important decision! Take a look at the beautiful dresses we’ve found…

Your Bridesmaid Will Be So Happy with These Cover Ups

We’re all about helping you navigate the various wedding dilemmas that sneak up on you while you plan. Today, we’re tackling bridesmaid cover ups.

Problem: your bridesmaid dress is sleeveless or strapless and you’re getting married outdoors / taking photos outside where it will be cold –OR– you would prefer bridesmaids to have a little coverage during the ceremony.

Solution: just add a cover up. But make it one that she’ll love!

A pashmina, shawl, bolero, or a wrap are a few options when it comes to bridesmaid cover ups. We love the idea of something feminine and flowy that she’ll love to wear, especially in the late summer or fall when all you need is something lightweight. We spotted these gorgeous bridesmaid cover ups at Coralie Beatrix and they fit the bill perfectly. They’re lightweight, available in a variety of colors, made in your choice of lace or chiffon, and they’re priced right. Plus, these cover ups complement infinity dresses perfectly (especially these signature “Octopus” dresses here). Take a look at the bridesmaid cover ups we found below, today’s handmade-a-day find!

Gold Chiffon Bridesmaid Dresses with Sequin Bodice

Chiffon is one of summer’s favorite fabrics because it’s so lightweight and airy. That’s why you’ve probably seen many chiffon dresses showcased for spring and summer weddings — it’ll keep you and your bridesmaids cool & calm, even when it’s ninety degrees and humid as can be. When I was on a mission to find gold bridesmaid dresses for a bride-to-be, this sweet little number from Dahl caught my eye. It has a pretty shade of gold infused with light champagne, a dramatic boatneck style, comfortable knee-length skirt, and a sequined bodice. It’s obvious these dresses offer a little something that everyone could love! Don’t just take my word for it: take a look! It is today’s #HANDMADEADAY find!

Flowy Chiffon Wedding Dress

It’s time for another gorgeous wedding dress to inspire you! I adore everything about this flowy chiffon wedding dress and its sweet v-shaped neckline. We spotted it over at Mila Mira Bridal and thought you might like it, too. Chiffon is one of my favorite fabrics, especially for spring and summer weddings: it’s so soft and airy for hot weather, and styled perfectly for a free-spirited bohemian wedding.

I’m curious to know — what do you think of this style? What does YOUR dream dress look like?

Flowy Chiffon Wedding Dress

This dress features a ruched chiffon bodice and hand sewn corded lace appliqué. I adore the low back style — a huge trend this season.
