I bought this feather hair comb from Shelly Sheek. The one I purchased is not quite as long as this one. I'll wear it in my hair rather than a veil. Fun!
I'm keeping the jewelry to a minimum. I bought these Nadri crystal earrings from Nordstrom. They go beautifully with the crystals on my dress. I'm just wearing the earrings and my ring...no necklace or bracelet.
Our invitations! I ordered the flat invitation cards online from Invitations by Dawn and then got the gatefolds from Paper Source. Then I bought some ribbon to tie it together and crystals for the middle of the flowers from Michael's to complete the DIY invitation! :) These were definitely a labor of love...glued a total of about 255 crystals by hand!
Love, love, love! I wanted a little bit of pizzazz under my gown...so fun!
For our centerpieces, we're going for something a bit contemporary and sleek, yet still soft and organic.
Some of the different flowers that will be used for centerpieces and bridesmaid bouquets:
Parrot tulip Dahlia Mango Mini Calla Hydrangea
Circus rose Lisianthus China Berry Chocolate Dahlias
Curly Willow Monkey tail Green Moss
and the flowers that will be used for my bouquet:
Peony (or Rose) Blush Mini Calla Lisianthus Cymbidium Orchid
