    After you choose your wedding dress, you'll probably start thinking about what accessories will look best with your gorgeous gown. Many brides select very traditional pieces, but what if you want to showcase more of your own personality and style? Well then my dear, then go in search of accessories that speak to your fashion soul. Go with your gut and wear what love.
    The Dress
    Before we talk about the jazzy accessories you might like to select, you might want to decide on your dress. Would you like it to be more traditional, or a little out of the ordinary. You can always play around with adding colorful embellishments, going with vintage, raising the hemline and much more. Be sure that you select a gown you LOVE and makes you feel like a bride.
    The Shoes
    Bridal shoes generally peek out only slightly from the bottom of the wedding gown. More and more brides are having a lot of fun by putting their personal flare and funky style into their bridal shoe selection. At weddings today, you are likely to find glittery sneakers or pumps, brightly colored heels or ballet flats, beautifully embellished cowboy boots, and much more!
    The Accessories
    Bridal jewelry and other wedding accessories are another way that brides can really show off their personal style. Bold necklaces are very popular for brides who choose a strapless gown. However, some of these brides choose to forgo neck adornment and instead go for a striking pair of drop earrings. Many brides today are also losing the veil and instead selecting beautifully ornate hair pieces, or using a blusher.
    There are so many ways that brides can showcase their personal style. Brides, don't go with what you think people expect you to have or wear, instead choose what makes you (and your groom) happy. When all is said and done YOU will be left with those wonderful memories of how perfectly authentic your big day was.
  • Flower Girl -- Flower Girl Baskets


    Embroidered Flower Girl Basket

    Flower girls are darling, sweet, and often unpredictable -- but usually in an adorable way. They range in age from about 3-8 years old and most often carry a beautiful flower girl basket full of rose petals. During Greek and Roman times -- these little princesses would carry bundles of grain and herbs, which was thought to aid in fertility.

     


    Starlight Flower Basket

     

    Flower girl baskets became a tradition during the Victorian Era and that tradition continues today.  The flower girl dress is most often white -- to represent purity. The ring of flowers - that the little lady wears on her head - symbolizes eternity. The flower petals being scattered - just as the grain in Roman times - is used to represent fertility. Red rose petals are scattered to represent the deep love of the couple. Many brides choose flower petals other than red to either fit with the theme or their personal preference.
