As a dressmaker of alternative wedding dresses I'm always delighted with the unique and beautifully offbeat concepts my clients come up with. In the past couple years though I have been particularly excited by the sweeping trend of colored gowns.
I never get tired of hunting for the perfect shade of turquoise that's going to match their partner's tie or vest.
Your wedding can be anything you dream it to be, and that extends to your wedding party! It doesn't matter if you have a special theme, or just want to do something a little extra.
This wedding had a mythical woodland theme, and I wanted the bridesmaids (and bridesman) to look like magical fairies who emerged from the forest. They all had a pair of wings and flower crown, along with a decorated staff instead of a bouquet. I made each of these items by hand and personalized them for each person.
I really wanted these fairy bridesmaids to carry something special down the aisle. Originally they were going to have spears, but then spears turned into staffs. I'm glad I changed my mind; decorating six very different staffs gave the wedding an extra dash of eclectic and natural beauty.
One thing's for sure, this was a wedding party you wouldn't want to mess with!

Sara approached me and said something like- I want a corset, and then I'm thinking like a steampunk gypsy layered skirt, in peacock colors.
When I stopped wide eyed drooling, I told her- Yes. I can do that.
