debra setWe did a feature on Debra Moreland’s cake jewelry a few weeks back after we got back from Bridal Week in New York City, and now it’s time to focus in on her spectacular bridal jewelry. As you can see, she brought quite a bit with her to the New York Bridal Market (Pier 92), and we certainly weren’t complaining.

PARIS is an exquisite collection of wearable pieces that are the perfect finishing touch to any bride’s outfit, and it’s quite extensive. Moreland is a master of it all, from elegant hair jewelry (because there’s no other way to describe these pieces as other than jewelry for your hair), to accessories such as necklaces, brooches, and bracelets.

When we got up close, it was apparent that all of her classic (yet modern) pieces were made with extreme care, each eye-catching detail carefully thought … [read more]

Flashback Friday: That 70’s Wedding

weddingpic754I, for one, am happy the 1970s are long gone. I remember wearing heavily flowered corduroy pants and polyester shirts with v-collars that could literally poke out an eye. Wedding dresses weren’t too different. In style was the polyester dress–one that couldn’t be wrinkled and could basically be thrown in the washing machine the day after the wedding, coming out looking brand new. Veils were heavy, but hats were all the rage, as seen in the photo above. Yes, I lived through this age. I was a flower girl at least twice during this time. I don’t even want to discuss the tuxedos from back then.

Strangely, as a child of the 70s, I also fell in love with weddings. To this day I still ask myself how that happened, being surrounded by nothing but polyester. My saving grace had to have been the family photos of weddings from the … [read more]

We rarely have a chance to wear something as fabulous as a Tiffany tiara in real life, but if life presents you with that opportunity, we say TAKE IT! This breathtaking beauty has 15.60 total weight in diamonds; 11.44 ct pear-shaped white diamonds and 8.43 ct cushion-cut yellow diamonds. Now imagine it with a bridal veil attached.

Next, imagine it just as a bracelet. Yes…this multi-functional tiara breaks down to be worn as a bracelet, with the yellow diamonds sparkling on your wrist.

We think that’s just plain clever.

Floral Wreaths in Style

Audrey Hepburn married Mel Ferrer on a lovely September day in 1954. While she may have been married in September, a flower crown is something many modern brides will be adorning their hair with year-round. Whether the flowers are freshly-cut or made out of fine materials with sparkle, we think there is not a more feminine and perfect accessory for a wedding–any season.… [read more]
