The Colorful Bridal Biz

One of my best friends is getting married in June and I had the privilege of making hers and her Maid of Honor's hair pieces. They are simple silk flower barrettes with feathers and a rhinestone in the center. Pictured above is the Maid of Honor's. I'm holding the Bride's as a secret. Don't want to spoil it. I love how they turned out. I've never done these before and the simplicity and elegance of it just fits perfectly with my friend's style. Can't wait to see them in action.
These are the Boutonnieres for the same wedding. Using sterling silver beads and pearls, they are understated and elegant. I love how they won't die and can be kept. The girlfriend or wife will most definitely snag these babies after the wedding.
This is a set of 3 custom flower rings that are still in the sample stages for a different wedding. These are what the bridesmaids are going to be wearing- all 8. So there will be 24 rings. The wedding is periwinkle and yellow themed. That would be a fun wedding to go to. Can't wait to hear about it! Flower rings are available in my shop at $7 each.
And these are Red roses that I shipped 4 of to Montreal this week for a wedding the first week of June. The bride and her 3 bridesmaids will be wearing them. These are $10 each available in many colors in my shop.

So you can see that weddings can be fun and creative. They don't have to be white, they don't have to use pearls. And they certainly don't have to be expensive.
I do custom work, so just ask.

Adhere Your Man, Or Anyone Else

Here's a little Tutorial for a little fun. I was walking by the TV yesterday and in a glimpse they mentioned that Beyonce wears her man on her fingernail. I thought "and why can't I?" I was on the way to the computer anyways. So I found an image and shrunk it down. You have to play around with image size but you'll find around 30-50 px depending on the nail. and print it out. Cut it out to shape to the nail. Use clear polish under the nail and add a thick coat and apply the image right away as the polish acts like a glue. Hold it down until it sticks. Then apply 1-2 layers of clear polish on top.

I put my man on my nail so I can see him as he works long hours. I thought this would be cute with dogs, or kids too. Play around. Have fun.
