A Wedding with Some Summer Punch!


I love Spring and Summer weddings – the colors are often deep and rich and our wedding with Brandi is no exception!  When I got a call from the bride concerning her daughter who was to be her flower girl in her wedding, Brandi said in the sweetest southern voice – “I want to have some real punch in my wedding and make it fun” – so we sent her all the hot pink colors we had as we knew she was going to have the maids wear navy.  “Send me lots and lots of pink” Brandi said!

I was transfixed when I sent the dress to the bride and even more excited to see her photos….so much so that we named her’s the Flower Girl Dress & Wedding of the Month for August!  The flower girl dress had a navy bodice in silk with a Cinderella Sash and Boing underskirt covered with 10 layers of hot pink tulle for Pegeen Style 402.  Enjoy.

Flower Girl Dresses for an Ole’ Kentucky Family Wedding


I had SO much fun this past weekend!  I went to a family wedding, and boy was it a shindig.  My sister’s family (lives in Indiana) transported our “mostly from NJ” and the Kentucky family of the fiance, now wife of my nephew, into a different time and age.  I will post more images later as I plan to cover the wedding details in full (starting with a transformed “Gatsby” themed rehearsal party), but I had to talk about the flower girl dresses that I was SO proud of my seamstresses that produced truly a spectacular and wonderful Swarovski encrusted, silk and tulle, vintage feeling Tulle Flower Girl Dress from the Fairytale Collection, our “Topaz” Style 904.  I can’t remember for sure but I estimate that there are close to 800 or so crystals on that dress, which is a lot of handwork.

Yes I admit – it is the most expensive dress that we have produced but after I saw all the dresses the bridesmaids wore and this SPECTACULAR wedding gown (the first one actually) and veil with all of their crystals, I know the bride chose the right flower girl dresses that we gave as their presents.  (Part of the perks of having a designer in the family, I suppose).Creme flower girl dress "Topaz " from the Fairy Tale Collection ivory-flower-girl-dresses-00119

So, now that my “niece-daughter” has announced her engagement, she asked me to do her gown.  I was pretty hesitant before, but I am “in” on it now!  Jessica – let’s do two!  For those of you that have seen these images on Facebook, please indulge me on the duplicate post.
