Musings: Tassels, ribbons and ties, oh my!

July 31st, 2013 – 1 Comment

Ribbons make the loveliest of wedding decorations…tied onto chairs, streaming from trees, and of course in the case of our Maiden gown, streaming from your waist and shoulders for the dreamiest walk down the aisle!

Musings: Decoupage • The Back Story

May 29th, 2013 – Comment

From the moment the bride takes her first step down the aisle, all eyes are on her. And honestly, it’s hard to take your eyes off! So, it’s always been my mission to make her look breathtaking from every angle. The back is a beautiful spot for a sheer inset of lace, or a fantastic floral detail…or even to show a sensous (but always lovely) bit of skin. Your guests will be fully captivated, so you may as well give them something to admire while you recite your vows.

New Looks: Decoupage Details • Lace

May 21st, 2013 – Comment

Lace is one of my favorite fabrics. There are so many varieties and techniques used to create this intricate textile, but I prefer the old ways. Many of the mills that I work with are in their 4th, 5th, and in one case, 9th generation of family owned businesses! Some of the lace patterns in my collection were designed and drafted in the 1760’s. I feel the history behind these gorgeous fabrics makes lace such a special choice for a wedding dress. That sense of the past, and artisan craftsmanship being handed down through the generations is rare in our disposable world, and it gives me hope that there are still people doing this work, and brides that appreciate it.
