Mary's emergency becomes our studio fun. . .

June 10, 2010

We were contacted this week by Mary. She had waited several months for her headpiece to arrive, and with only weeks to her wedding, was upset with disappointment over what was delivered. We were happy to take on the role of making the headpiece she had envisioned. It has been a rush to squeeze this in, but we are pleased to be of help. . .

Mary is wearing an ivory gown with a black sash and wanted a statement feather piece in earthy greens and black mounted on a small black birdcage veil. I don't have a photo of her gown, but the Vera Wang and Jenny Packham gowns below are lovely examples of black-accented bridal gowns.

Vera Wang

With its asymmetrical layers of Chantilly lace and swirling pleated organza, this strapless ball gown is getting dangerously close to "too much"—the crisp black organza and horsehair sash manages to reign in the frills a bit.

Jenny Packham

A beaded black lace bolero gives this fluttery silk gown an antique feel; the bow detail takes the look to somewhere between sweet and sexy.

Mary's bridal piece was modeled after our Shelly. We used a kilt green dye to create more earthy green tones and added several exotic feather-types including emu and black elements to increase the texture and pop of her design.

We hope Mary is both relieved and
back to good cheer when she sees these feedback photos!
