Sara's Customized Tress Bridal Feather, Swarovski Crystal & Silk Headpiece & Birdcage Veil

December 28, 2010

We have been working on a customized Tress bridal headpiece for Sara. It is time to share feedback photos with her before finalizing her design. I thought some of you might enjoy seeing the results of our work with Sara!

Sara has chosen the lovely strapless, silk chiffon Grecian-style gown in light ivory/silk white with princess neckline and champagne satin sash shown below.

Sara wanted several changes to the Tress design, which included customized dying of the silk organza & velvet pressed flower, the design of a pearl & Swarovski crystal accent, and the addition of taller stripped coque feathers. She has chosen the 12" French veiling birdcage in ivory, mounted on a separate comb. This will allow her to remove the veiling during the reception.

We have used a few shades of feathers to add interest to her design and created a dramatic accent of antique silver filigree elements, large pointed-back Swarovski crystals, and cultured pearls. The crystal accent is pinned in place in a few of the photos below, as we want to make sure that Sara is happy with the outcome before permanently mounting it in place. I was just thinking how lovely a matching accent (with or without feathers) would look on the left side of the empire, satin sash of her gown and will share that idea with her.

We will eagerly await her feedback!
