keeping brides fabulous in veils, feathered frivolities, bejeweled headpieces, and more

we heart vintage pieces turned new again

you know how much we love re-working stunning pieces into a fresh and modern piece for today’s bride… this is the story of an extra-special, unforgettable one!

a mom-of-the-bride gave us a call with a very special request- turn her stunning heirloom, a crystal-encrusted belt from her big day, into a headpiece for her daughter’s upcoming nuptials.

the belt was stunning, hand-detailed with countless little sparkly wonders – crystals and sequins and beads, oh my! we snapped a few before photos of the belt…

it was almost tear-enducing cutting up such a spectacular piece of art, but her idea of creating a custom comb was just fabulous.

we created a headpiece using a small section of the belt. but for the big day, a veil too was in order. we created a ruffled pencil edge veil, but rather than affixing it directly to the headpiece that we created, we added a secret row of buttons on the underside. this way, after the wedding, she is now able to remove the veil and wear the stunning comb again and again as a reminder of her special day!

wasn’t she absolutely stunning? so romantic!

  1. Beautiful as well as creative! Just stunning! The idea of creating this piece from a beloved piece of the brides mother,an heirloom, that was to be worn for the brides wedding as well as creating it to be removed from the veil to wear throughout her life. Perhaps she will pass this down in years to come as well!! How beautiful and,touching..such an inspiring story
