Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m not lying when I say that coffee ranks pretty high up there in my list of my favorite things. From espresso to cappuccino to Keurig blends (like this, my latest obsession) to pumpkin-spice fall flavors coming out next month, I’d say that coffee is a fascination. Earlier I told our Twitter followers about the funny thing I almost did this morning so you can imagine that coffee is a pretty wonderful start to my everydays. It wakes me up, smells heavenly, and it’s the juice that keeps me going, going, going. So when I saw wedding coffee bar ideas popping up on our Pinterest boards, I knew I had to turn this into an inspiration post. Because, when you get down to it, coffee and weddings are both pretty amazing; add in a few handcrafted touches and the result is awe-inspiring. If you’re a coffee-addict like me, you’ll love these seven things every wedding coffee bar NEEDS to have. Enjoy!

As it starts to get ridiculously chilly outside — especially here in the Midwest — we thought it was a great opportunity to share bridal cover ups for winter weddings. When A & I got married, we chose an early December wedding in Michigan. We lucked out with pretty gorgeous weather for winter, along with a little sprinkle of snow as we exited the church after the ceremony. I chose a faux fur stole and it was the perfect accessory to keep my shoulders warm. However, anytime from October through March is anyone’s best guess at how chilly you will or will not be in your wedding gown. And, like Halloween when your mother made you wear a jacket over your costume, no one wants to cover up their gorgeous dress. In this post, you’ll find a few hand-picked suggestions for bridal cover ups that will warm you up without ruining your style. Plus, we’re giving away a wearable item for the bride to wear while running errands, lounging, and wearing on the honeymoon by ArenLace. Read on to find out more…
