Wedding Preparations

My eldest niece, Diana, is going to be the first of my three nieces to get married. And I am soooo excited. She and her sisters are the daughters of my heart. I love them more than life. So this Saturday will be the first day of Bridal shopping. My sympathies are going to be with the Bridal Consultant who will have to deal with my niece, Diana, a very strong-willed woman, her two sisters, two best friend, Auntie (me) and her Mom. I've been watching "Say Yes To the Dress", a Learning Channel reality show that takes place at Kleinfeld's in New York.

OMG, what these people go through to find the right dress. It's
not just price, which can range from $1,000 to a whopping $24,000, it's finding what makes the bride "feel" it's the right one. They do say that the more people the bride brings to the consultation, the harder it is. After all.... everyone has an opinion and that could get the bride confused. But I have faith in my niece and our family and friends. Most of us pretty much agree on what will look good on her.

Of course, as her Auntie, I've elected to cr
eate all of the jewelry for the Bride and the Wedding Party. Can't do anything until the dresses are chosen but I am getting so excited. Her colors are ivory, fuchsia and sage. For a January wedding in South Florida, it's perfect!!!

However, I could use some advice when making wedding jewelry as this will be a first for me. Hints, tips, inspiration, ideas, anything anyone can share will indeed, help me do the best I can for them. Last thing I want is for them to think my work is too cheap or unprofessional.

The closest I've come to anything bridal looking are these Pearl drops. But I think they'd be more for the Mother of the Bride than the young lady herself.

So, I'll do my best. But I could use some help from the experts and others with a good eye. :) Oh, did I tell you I'm all excited!?
