Hi, loves! Oh, how we’re crazy over handmade wedding finds at Emmaline Bride… especially hair accessories. Yesterday we talked about wedding veil alternative ideas we knew you’d love and we had to omit one of our favorites: hair combs. That’s because today we’re sharing an exclusive vintage inspired hair comb giveaway for one lucky reader by Jewelsalem! We’ve hand-picked a few of our favorites to show you, but we want to know which one you love most… read on for the full scoop!
Vintage Inspired Hair Combs
These handmade wedding hair combs are crafted with care and are customized in your choice of colors. A hair comb makes a great gift for the bride, her MOH, or flower girl. You can wear a hair comb as a chic wedding veil alternative (or remove your veil and wear the hair comb for your reception).

I’ll never know what it is that fascinates me so about chair signs. But, alas, I’ve found yet another that has stolen my heart. These gold-framed silhouette chair signs are all kinds of lovely, especially the gold framing and the black-and-white profile print. I would recommend these chair signs for a vintage wedding theme, particularly one that incorporates rich pops of gold. What I love most about these silhouette chair signs is the ability to use them again as charming home decor. How’s that for money well spent?

We received an Ask Emmaline question recently and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Bride-to-be, Meghan, asks us, “I want guests to sit anywhere they want at my ceremony, rather than traditionally on the right or left depending on whose family they are from. Any tips?” Great question, Meghan! A new-ish trend that we’ve seen (last year in its peak and continuing through this season) is the idea of ‘Pick a Seat Not a Side‘. Easily conveyed to guests in a sign form, this ensures guests mingle and sit together rather than moving from one side to another. Read on to see an example of this idea in action and enter for a chance to win one by the lovely Citrus Press Co.!
