Hand Made With Love

I love this time of year! Not only because of the holidays but this is the time of year when I get to make hand crafted accessories for brides. I started Pretty Bride Shop because I saw a need for brides to be able to get the accessories of their dreams. It all started with one head piece for a friend, and since then I have had the honor to create veil’s Garters, flower girl baskets and even a jumping broom kit in addition to feather fascinators. Today I would love to share some of my favorite pieces and why I love making each piece tailored to each bride. 

My first veil for 2014 has turned out to be a very special piece. I met with the bride, Linzy a few months ago. As soon as she began to tell me about her wedding, my mind began to race with designs for her. She is my kind of gal, her style is very boho, fresh, girly, southern with a vintage flair. As I got to know her, she began to tell me about how her grandmother is growing the flowers for the wedding and how excited she is. How amazing is that? to have your grandmother not only arrange the flowers for your wedding, but to grow them! As soon as I heard that, I knew we had to incorporate pieces of her grandmothers jewelry into her veil. Below are a few sneak peaks of the supplies that I used for her veil and of the veil itself. Her wedding isn’t until Spring 2014, so you will have to wait to see her wedding photos. I am so thrilled to have been able to make this very Special veil for such a lovely southern bride!

As soon as I get photos from Linzy’s wedding, I will share her amazing veil made with love just for her. 

I would love to showcase some of last years creations:

I made this sassy birdcage veil/ flower hair piece for Katie. Katie had a Mad Men Themed wedding.

I made La June a Super fun feather flat hat! I had so much fun making her hat for her Tiffany’s themed wedding.

Finally, I will leave you with Heather’s flower Head piece. I loved matching the flowers from Heather’s dress for her head piece. I would not have thought of making the flowers the way that the dress maker had made them. This flower headpiece was a piece that forced me out of my comfort zone and helped me grow as a designer. 

Thank You for reading today’s post. I hope you enjoyed it!
