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:

Groomsmen Suspenders: Trend We Love

Posted December 6, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 5 Comments

We’ve seen bow ties, neckties, groomsmen in glasses, and sneakers instead of dress shoes… but this is a first: handmade groomsmen suspenders! And, might I add, we’re loving this trend. The lovely French Knot Weddings can craft a custom pair of suspenders for your groom and groomsmen made to order in any color. These groomsmen suspenders are made of designer print cotton with elastic built in for an adjustable and comfortable fit. A suede patch on the back (shown with a heart below) can have a heart symbol, initials, or anything with which you can dream! Attaches to pants with metal suspender clips; each custom order takes 4-6 weeks to process. Be sure to ask about group pricing if you are ordering multiple suspenders for each of your groomsmen!

Guillermo & Patty’s Idaho Falls Engagement Shoot

Posted August 29, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

Guillermo and Patty’s Idaho Falls engagement took place in a beautiful backwoods setting. This cool couple had no problem looking natural in this lovely outdoor setting resting on cut timber, strolling down memory lane with umbrella in hand, and kicking their feet up on an old rusty automobile. With deep felt gazes, close kisses, and hands clasped Guillermo and Patty start their journey from best friends to life long companions. We wish the both of you all the best on your long and happy future together! Creatively capturing this wonderful couple’s Idaho Falls engagement was Jaclyn from Jaclyn Davis Photography.

Embroidered Necklaces

Posted July 14, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 4 Comments

Let’s face it: everyone loves a gift with his or her name or initial on it. I can remember being a little kid in a gift shop, flipping through personalized keychains hoping to find one with ‘Emma’ on the front. (It barely ever existed.) When I did find one, it was satisfying for some reason to see it in print. Who’s with me? Well, I’m pretty sure that feeling ever fades because I still love to receive gifts with my initial or name stamped right onto it. Add hand-embroidery to it and the adorableness factor increases dramatically. Case in point? Meet The Merriweather Council, the designer of these adorable embroidered necklaces. These are perfect for gifting to bridesmaids (and don’t forget to snag one for yourself, too!). Check out a few examples… and, no, I couldn’t resist using an ‘E’ for the top sample. ;)

Bohemian Hair Wreath

Posted June 23, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 5 Comments

I discussed my fascination with tulle earlier today (non-itchy tulle, of course), so I thought it appropriate to share a few more of my favorite things: the color pink and pearl embellishments. Needless to say, when I spotted this bohemian hair wreath by BowsnBerries it was love at first sight. This beautiful dusty pink rose flower hair clip is placed onto a handmade wired wreath, with glass pearl accents and a subtle mauve satin ribbon. Bohemian brides, you’ll especially love this look – plus, your bridesmaids can follow suit!

How to Wear A Brooch (with Subtlety)

Posted May 5, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 4 Comments

We’ve been asked many questions by our brides, particularly in regards to how to wear certain handmade pieces. One question in particular is how to wear a brooch with subtlety, when you’re not entirely sure you can pull it off or you don’t exactly like it. Vintage brooches have made a comeback in the past few years, but not everyone is in love with them and they do not coordinate with every gown. For instance, let’s say your grandmother, mother, great-aunt, or other family member with whom has a vested interest has passed down a brooch to wear for your wedding day. The problem? You don’t like it. It’s not your style, it does not match, and you wouldn’t dream of wearing it pinned to your gorgeous gown on your wedding day. But… you don’t want to disregard family tradition, let alone hurt anyone’s feelings… so, what to do? We have found the perfect solution: the brooch bracelet.

Boho Headband: Floral Halo + Vintage Millinery

Posted May 1, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Do you like the boho headband style? I do, particularly the halo style headbands. However, like most of you, I’m not quite sure I can pull it off. But, I do think they look great, ESPECIALLY on other people. ;) This in particular really caught my eye and I’d be thrilled to wear it – at least, try it out and see if someone could give me the thumbs up that I am, in fact, pulling off the look. A great idea for bridesmaids!

Pretty Pink Ruffles

I am a bit of a girly-girl (in case you couldn’t tell…) and there is something about pink ruffles that gets me every time. So, you can imagine my sheer excitement when I spotted Lilly Pie Accessories, a shop filled with romantic ruffles, lots of pink (+ other colors), and fun, ready-to-wear accessories. These hand-picked accessories will look great on your wedding day and beyond – but don’t forget to gift to your bridesmaids (and flower girl, too). Every girl could use a little ruffle in her life. :) This first necklace is my favorite and features pink, gray and white chiffon flowers:
