Recently there has been a big shift towards fun alternatives to fresh floral bouquets for brides and their bridal party.  Sure there is always something special about having a lovely fresh posy of flowers to hold but they can be quite costly, a lot of flowers are seasonal and you can’t keep it forever. Among other ideas such as button bouquets, brooch bouquets, fabric flower bouquets (like the style that I create via Silver Sixpence), one of the cute alternatives… Read more »

Shannon came to me seeking a really fun 50s style dress and it was an absolute must for her to have a matching bolero.  During the initial consultation she fell in love with the “cherry blossom” colour on one of my other samples so we created a custom design together incorporating a lovely fitted waist, a full gathered skirt with a soft sheer overlay and a matching bolero all in the soft cherry blossom shade. The Proposal: I was lucky… Read more »
