Bridal Cocktail Hat with Birdcage - Vintage Style

Bridal Cocktail Hat with Birdcage

One of my lovely brides we designed a cocktail hat for.
This hat was made over the course of 5 months. Katy, the bride, took time to work with us to create the hat she wanted. 
Her love of  all that is 1950's vintage, peacock feathers, vintage mother of pearl buttons and a birdcage veil came together beautifully.

Bridal Button & Brooch Bouquet

Bridal Bouquet Vintage Buttons, Brooches and Beads 

Work in progress!
We are making a white and silver bridal bouquet using all that is vintage.
The buttons are the treasures form many grandmothers' button boxes. Brooches are all vintage and are mainly from the 1940s to 1950s. Glass beads from the 1930s to 1960s, these probably attended many parties and sparkled as the were worn to dances and parties. Each part of our bouquet probably has a story to tell.
Now each part lives on in our nearly completed bouquet.
Any ideas of bouquets you might like made for your wedding. Please email me, Adrienne with ideas.
