Oh, you’re going to love this adorable idea. Since we just talked about wedding coffee bar ideas, I knew it was the perfect time to tie in this DIY marry me mug. If you’re going to propose soon, and need the best proposal idea ever, this is one of them! Introducing the marry me mug, a mug that has the words, ‘Marry Me’, written in the inside, at the bottom, so it is revealed after she is done drinking her beverage. I think it would go something like this: guy makes girl delicious cup of coffee. Girl sits on couch waiting for said coffee, cuddling up underneath an afghan. Guy brings coffee — one mug for him, the other is the marry me mug for girl — and they converse for a pretty solid amount of time. Girl drinks her coffee too slow, it’s too hot, and boy gets impatient. He’s sweating, nervous, but he also has to drink the hot coffee because otherwise she would wonder what’s up. With each sip, he gets nervous… when will she see it?

One of the biggest wedding etiquette issues comes down to the guest list. Who should you invite? Does so-and-so have to be invited? Do I have to invite my co-workers? It’s a sticky situation, that’s for sure. And that’s where this guest list flow chart comes in. It will help trim the guest list fat, so to speak, so you can keep your budget in check and keep smiling. This is not the end-all list (and it won’t help with each guest) but it can help for a few of those guests where you’re completely unsure whether to invite. Take a look…

We received another awesome Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara. She asks, “Dear Emmaline, I just started shopping for wedding gowns. I’m so confused on necklines, though. There are so many and I’m unfamiliar with most of them. Any advice?” Great question, Sara! We spotted this helpful wedding dress necklines guide that we thought would help you — and many other brides! — as you shop for the perfect dress. It definitely helps to know the style you’re referring to when you speak to a designer. If I could offer some advice, it would be to try many different wedding dress necklines. After all, you’ll never really know how great a neckline can look on you unless you try it on! Onto the guide…
