Everyone is doing it: handcrafting custom bridal hairpieces, shoe clips and more. You can find beautiful designs by artisans all over Etsy. The only problem? You can’t see it in person before you buy it and you can’t make last minute tweaks and changes. How do you get that handcrafted look without the risk you ask? Stop by The Bridal Suite & Special Occasion.
“Frosting for the Bridal Suite & Special Occasion” is a custom design line offered exclusively in our store. The products in this line range from hair vines to faux floral crowns, boutonnieres and flower girl dresses to broach and flower hairpieces.
Take a look at this custom hair vine that bride Tamara and I designed together:
She took a look that was already a sample in store and had me change the colors to match the amethyst theme of her wedding. We add a few crystals here and couple feathers there, scheduled a couple “fittings” and voila! She had the perfect accessory to compliment her gown. After her wedding, Tamara said, “It looks fabulous… I’ve had so many compliments on it”!
These hair flowers are so pretty and so easily customizable. Pick your favorite color to match your dress, bridesmaids or accent your eyes! Then select a center accent. Last “frost” it with jewels, pearls, tulle, lace, feathers or berries. I can even add scraps of your wedding gown fabric in between the petals to create a totally cohesive look. These flowers also make a great bridesmaid’s gift. Your girls can pin them in their hair or on their dress to add a little dimension to their look.
How adorable are these custom tutu dresses? One of Frosting’s most popular styles, this dress is fully lined for comfort and tailored to your little daring’s exact measurements. Change up the sleeves, bodice and embellishments to create an original style. Little girls love this dress so much they cannot wait to wear it again and never want to take it off after they try it on.
It is so much fun to create your one-of-a-kind wedding day look! Book an appointment with me – Brittany Shunk – and we can sit down and design a custom piece together.
