More Beautiful Bridal Accessories

Today's Weddings are all about Accessories!

My daughter's bouquet
Pink and Cream Spray Roses with Pearl Studded Stephanotis

My dear friend Monica of The White Bench was recently featured.....yes FEATURED in
not one, but TWO magazines!!

                                Monica's silk memory bridal bouquet was recently featured in

Read more about it here and here

Monica says, "I envisioned the bride walking along the aisle wearing a meaningful bouquet made with her mother's wedding dress or veil turned into beautiful rosettes, adorned with brooches or earrings previously enjoyed by her grandmother, beads or pearls from vintage necklaces that hold a special memory... "an unusual way to tell a family tale".

She was also featured in the Winter Issue of ALTERED COUTURE
and she has graciously allowed me to use her beautiful pictures here
for all of you to see!

I found a few other "takes" on the not-so-traditional bridal bouquet.....
All made with vintage/newer rhinestone jewelry

Swarovski Pearls and crystals bridal necklace

Beautiful Hair Brooch with Feathers

Bridal Ribbon Rhinestone Headband Hair Accessory

Valentino Shoes

The Pour La Victoire "Stella" shoes (Zappos.com) have all the classic nuptial markings -- white satin, decorative bow, peep toe -- but the sole is a vivid aqua.

birdcage veil with floral detail

Garter belts just MIGHT come back in fashion if they were all this pretty!

The BEST accessory of all is LOVE and a gorgeous SMILE!

Looking forward to seeing YOU on Friday at the party!

Eeeee!!! This is gorgeous, Stephanie. I almost cried when I saw those tiffany blue bottom shoes. Sigh...my favorite color and on a bridal shoe. Gorgeous!! You were right, seeing these helped me but I gotta admit I am hypnotized by the birdies on your chandelier. How cute is that? :)

Looking forward to Friday. Thanks for stopping by.
Much love!

Does anyone know where to find the shoes now-a-days? I really love them and have found some like it but not those exactly!
