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, loves! We have a new Ask Emmaline question today from bride-to-be Ashleigh. We were just talking with one of our wedding clients this week about this very same question, so it couldn’t have come at a better time. Ashleigh writes,
Hi Emmaline! I was looking for a wedding card box at the store with a lock, but they didn’t sell any. I looked online and saw dozens but they will take too long to arrive for my December wedding. Do you have any suggestions on how to secure the card box at my wedding? I’m scared of someone taking the cards and money or stealing the card box altogether. I don’t want to be paranoid about it all evening. Any tips?
That’s a good question, Ashleigh! Most brides don’t think about this problem, yet it presents itself at every single wedding. I’m not suggesting your friends and family or wedding vendors will necessarily steal from you; however, you can’t always be certain and if there are other weddings happening at the same time, someone could walk by the door and grab the box and run. It’s horrible to think about, but you wouldn’t want all of your cards or gifts to go missing. There are some really easy ways to secure the card box and we’ll share those with you today!

Spotted: we found a sweet and heartfelt way to honor lost loved ones at your wedding. At a side table or entry way table at your reception, include a lighted candle alongside a framed sign that reads something along the lines of, “This candle burns in loving memory of those who are forever present in our hearts.” Make sure you choose a tall hurricane-style vessel — something like this would work — and a lower candle so it is not a safety hazard. Also, check with your venue to make sure you can have candles. If they prohibit real flames, use one of these instead.
