Hi, loves! Emma here. If you’re reading this, you’re most likely a bride-to-be who is a) planning her wedding and b) curious about bridesmaid etiquette for the bride. I read this cringe-worthy article about a bridezilla with a capital B that really struck a chord. It’s hard to believe a bride could be such a crazed lunatic (to put it loosely), but I’m sure it happens more often than I think. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but it needn’t break character. The bridesmaids you’ve asked to be a part of your day are presumably your best friends. Sisters. Cousins. Loved ones. Don’t let this wonderful time in your life bring out the worst in you. We’ve prepared this post to keep things in perspective and stay on the good side of your wedding party. After all, it’s one day — one amazing, totally memorable and awesome day — and you’d like them to remember it just as fondly, right? Exactly. Read on to see seven things your bridesmaids need to hear you say…

Hi, loves! While planning your wedding, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of selfishness, always wanting things to go perfectly. A few months ago, I read a blog post by Robyn Bomar of Mix Mingle Glow which focused on how she celebrated her birthday with 38 random acts of kindness. It inspired and reminded me about how simple acts of kindness can impact one person’s day – and how good it feels to do things for others without anything in return. Today we’re tying in the idea of random acts of kindness with a wedding twist: read on to see fifty wedding acts of kindness that can make your wedding more meaningful for all involved. This is a great way to step back and remember why you’re planning your wedding day in the first place and put love back into the equation. Enjoy!
