When you want a piece of jewelry that will make a statement, consider a cuff bracelet. Cuff bracelets are a unique style of bracelet set on a wide band for an ultra-bold impact. Typically, cuff bracelets are made with rhinestones and Swarovski crystals which add even more pop and pizazz to your bridal look. A cuff bracelet is the finishing touch; when wearing one, be sure to accent with coordinating pieces that are less dramatic. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite stunners from the Cloe Noel collection. Take a closer look…

Have you seen this show on BBC called Sherlock? It’s pretty amazing, in so far as detective shows go. When Lorna Lovecraft took her admiration for the series to a whole new level with a Sherlock inspired wedding shoot, the color palette, bouquets, lace-detailed everything fit right in. But what we loved most was the vintage silhouette cake which totally stole the show. We’ve seen an awesome silhouette wedding cake in the past, but this, um, takes the cake. Read on to see it!

Hi, guys! Emma here, and I have a problem: I’m obsessed with sequins — gold, silver, hot pink, black — you name it, I would embellish with it. Maybe I just like sparkly, shiny things… Glitter. Diamonds. Druzy. Gold foil. (Then again, who doesn’t?) It turns out that sequins — you know, disc-shaped beads used for decoration purposes — originated in France and are used in a wide variety of accessories today including clothing, handbags, hair accessories, and more. What’s even more fascinating, though, is how they’re taking the wedding world by storm. It seems gold sequin wedding ideas are trending the most, with rose gold just one step behind. And, like its trending counterpart — gold foil everything — we know this is one trend that will be sticking around for awhile. Here’s how it starts: you don’t even think you like sequins, but then you discover a tutu-like wedding dress with a gold sequin bodice and think, holy cow, that’s gorgeous. Then you find a few gold sequin garlands, headbands, sashes, sequin trim wrapped invitations… and before you know it, you’re sequining ALL OF THE THINGS. So, take a look at the thirty-plus gold sequin wedding finds we’ve gathered (don’t worry, we’ll do silver, pink, and black in the future, I’m sure), and tell us know what you think of this trend. Sidebar: if you’re planning to incorporate some gold sequin wedding ideas into your Best Day Ever, I recommend moderation — it’s always key, you know. Enjoy!

My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!
