Brides: are you having an outdoor wedding? Do you need to protect your wedding cake from the elements (and worst of all… bugs)? You’ve come to the right place. We received this recent Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara, who says, “Hi, Emmaline. I am getting married outdoors this summer and will have my wedding cake on display. How do I protect it from the elements (like dirt, bugs, and leaves) without it looking tacky?” Great question! After spending money on your gorgeous cake (and having it made to perfection), the last thing you want to do is have to cover it up. For outdoor weddings, though, it’s important to protect wedding cake from the elements. Read on to see four surefire ways to protect wedding cake outdoors without stripping it of its loveliness…

You probably won’t believe us, but spring is actually around the corner. I know. It doesn’t feel like it at all, and I (Emma here!) can’t even remember what summer feels like. I’ve reached the point this winter where I’m tired of putting on a winter coat, boots, gloves, a hat, and a scarf every time I want to go anywhere. So, I’ll be the first to say that spring can’t come soon enough! Today we’re warming you up with some hot new styles for spring and summer sandals by the lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo. We’ve teamed up with the past and we love, love, love their sandals. Read on to see five new styles for summer sandals from their collection and see which pair got the EB Editor’s Pick! Whether you’re wearing a pair of summer sandals down the aisle or on your honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll find a pair to love from this collection. Enjoy!

Wedding favors are one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. While some may say favors aren’t necessary, I think they’re a totally fun detail that I love to see at weddings. However, they don’t need to be overly pricey or detailed. Keep it sweet, simple, and personalized — and your guests will love ‘em. We’ll talk about our favorite wedding favors for 2014 in a few days (stay tuned!) but today we’re focusing on favor tags. Any wedding favor you dream up, create, or buy will require some sort of personalization to make it your own. A popular (and easy-to-DIY) detail you can add is a tag. It can say thank you to guests, include your name and/or wedding date, and tie in your theme just a bit further. In this post, we’ll share favorite ideas for DIYing your favor tags PLUS one lucky reader will win one of the items below! Read on for the full scoop…
