Floral Fascinators: What Are They, And Why Are They So Fabulous?

by Azure

I have a confession. Graduating from college, with a degree in finance, and starting work at OneWed back in January, I was far from a wedding expert- especially when it came to bridal fashion. How far I've come since then... Its as if I've learned a whole new language! And I must say, it was a lot more fun (and much easier) than learning Spanish or Italian! Do you know what a Fascinator is? Because when I started at OneWed, I sure didn't! Defined, a fascinator is a delicate,...

Bubbly Bride: Barefoot Bride

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride A few weeks ago I wrote a post on telling your story through the shoes you pick for your wedding day. Today I am going to entertain another idea— walking down the aisle barefoot.
