Wedding Jewelry

You have all heard the SOMETHING OLD SOMETHING NEW SOMETHING BORROWED SOMETHING BLUE AND A SIX PENCE (or penny) FOR HER SHOE.

Something old: I have that one covered. I am using my grandmothers (now my mom has it) brooch and attaching it to my bouquet on the stems.

Something new: I suppose my dress, shoes, my earrings, and my new bracelet that I am having made. I saw a blog post on STYLE ME PRETTY with a beautiful bracelet.

This particular wedding that they were highlighting was in the middle of the winter so the bride's bracelet had a snowflake brooch. Obviously with an August wedding, that wouldn't exactly work, but I liked the idea of a rhinestone brooch and a multi-strand pearl bracelet--so I did some digging. As it turns out, this bride had the bracelet custom made. I found out that it was custom designed & made by the amazingly talented Christa Baker (starliftrc141@aol.com). I have since contacted Christa and she will be making my bracelet. We are both in search of the perfect brooch to use!!!
I saw these other MEGA expensive bracelets (they were almost $300 and the pearls nor the diamonds were real). They weren't exactly in my price range but they provide a nice inspiration.

Other bracelets: Haute Bride

Something borrowed: My mother's pearl necklace.

Something blue: I am working on that one still. I think I might wear my sapphire ring and also go to the embroidery shop and get a piece of fabric embroidered with (blue thread) Michael and Meredith Crawford (or our monogram) and our wedding date (August 2, 2008) and have it sewn in my dress on the underside of the skirt.

and A SIX PENCE FOR HER SHOE: My aunt Wendy went to London for Christmas this past year and brought me back a British penny for my wedding day to bring me luck. This will be perfect! Its really shiny too!

The bracelets you are using for inspiration are beautiful! I bought blue panties for my something blue. Not exactly the most creative, but it worked. I have also seen your name and wedding date embroidered into the hem of your dress in blue. That I think is beautiful. I wish I would have done that, but didn't have enough time.

Enjoy your week!
