Good morning, loves! It’s Saturday, which means it’s time for the Weekend Edition at Emmaline Bride! Every weekend, we highlight the best of the best from the web including handmade wedding DIYs, ideas, beauty tips, wedding planning advice, and more. Since your wedding planning doesn’t come to a screeching halt because it’s the weekend, neither do we! This weekend, we’ve gathered up inspiring finds such as an elegant wedding braid hairstyle, a cute wedding button, a killer first kiss, cinnamon rolls on a stick, garland, decorative drinks, a sweet gift for the bride, and more! So, without further adieu… let’s begin with a gorgeous wedding hairstyle…

Cinnamon Rolls on a Stick
We love cake pops, but cinnamon rolls on a stick have just become our newest favorite. Serve with cinnamon glaze as a dipping sauce. How delightful! Imagine serving theses at a bridal shower brunch or as part of your dessert bar…. yum! Grab the full recipe at Ice Cream Before Dinner.
