Getting ready for your wedding is an event in itself. The hair. The makeup. The pop mix your MOH made blaring from a nearby speaker. The (happy) tears. The waterproof-mascara (I swear by this one, and I’m pregnant so I cry a lot, ha!) The bridesmaid gift-giving moment. The first look after putting on the gown. There is so much to love about getting ready before the wedding, so you might as well make it a special part of your day. Today we’re sharing some rules you should know for getting ready to ensure you and your entire bridal party have an absolute blast. We’re also sharing some getting ready attire ideas and a special giveaway from Memento that you’ll want to win and start wearing RIGHT NOW. So, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and get ready to jot down a few notes for the big day!

“Wearing My Hair Down for the Wedding, But… ?” – Ask Emmaline

Bride-to-be Liz wrote to us with a new Ask Emmaline question about hairstyles for her wedding. She asks…

Dear Emmaline, I am getting married in a few months and don’t know what to wear in my hair. I’m not crazy about veils but I know I want to wear my hair down and curled (it’s pretty long). I’m worried without a veil it won’t look elegant enough for my wedding day. Do you have any advice on what I can do to make it look more formal?Liz

New! – Spring Wedding Crowns for the Bride

Happy Tuesday, loves! After one of the coldest winters I can remember, it’s finally getting warmer around here (upper 40’s and 50’s all week long). In some places, that’s considered cold; in Michigan, that’s shorts and sandals weather. ;) Anyway, with spring around the corner, we’ll finally get to see flowers in bloom. Since we’re too impatient to wait (you, too?), we thought it would be fun to bring some spring to you, in the form of spring wedding crowns for the bride, bridesmaids, or flower girl. These floral hair crowns are already in full bloom and ready to be worn. We spotted them over at Roses & Lemons, where our friend Cecil has been busy working around the clock on this new gorgeous collection. Ready to see what’s new? You’ll love these…

Bridal Headband With Veil or Without? – Ask Emmaline

Wondering what to wear instead of a veil? A bridal headband is one lovely option! Read on to find out more + be sure to subscribe so you never miss a post.

Are you considering a veil alternative for your big day? A bridal headband is one of our favorite choices, especially since it is extremely versatile. It can be worn with nearly any hairstyle and can be paired with a veil or without. You can even wear it with a veil for just the ceremony portion, and remove the veil for the reception. This question to our Ask Emmaline inbox couldn’t have come at a better time, since the lovely Blair Nadeau Millinery just released a beautiful new collection of bridal headbands, halo headbands, fascinators, and more for the discerning bride-to-be. Alicia asks,

I want to wear something other than a bridal veil, but I want it to be fancy enough. Also, am I supposed to wear a veil with a bridal crown or headband or is it better without?

Great question, Alicia! One of the wonderful things about a bridal headband or crown is that it can be worn with or without a veil. There’s no requirement — as the bride, you get to decide whether or not you wear a veil at all. It’s really up to your own personal preference. We think they look great with or without, and can really show off any hairstyle (whether up or down) nicely. To inspire you, here are a few handpicked (+ handmade!) bridal headbands we found that will fit the bill nicely. Some of these headbands can even be transitioned to a sash, which we love. Take a look…
