Great Find at Joann Store, Best Bead Organizer

It happens all the time, you go to the fabric store to buy a spool of thread
you need and you come out with a cart full of stuff, and it happened to me
again but this time there are no regrets what so ever. I spent all night and
early morning filling up the bead organizer, no longer to I have to dig to
get my beads out, just grab and get it.
I wish I could tell you I got all my beads in the three organizers that I bought
but I would be lying...oh and price? $14.97+tax each, regular price is over
$39.99, brand is ELIZ, now that is what I call a deal.

Hot Trends Bridal Veils for 2015

Color.- I have to say that au contraire  to what most most people would
think, WHITE is actually not the most used color by brides, I would have
to say the light ivory and off white/silk white are, color is in, so much so
that I have learned to dye tulle so it matches the bride's gown, and lace, but
not all lace is dye able and you only know until you try in a small piece so
as not to ruin the whole thing.
Trims.- From Small to large, horse hair trim is in. It's not only to match those
gowns that have horsehair themselves but also to add an ethereal air to the
overall look. It takes skill to sew this trim but with patience and a good sewing machine
I have conquered the trim!!!
Lace appliques.- Instead of the whole lace trim, just adding some lace appliques to
a veil will most definitely make a veil look like a million bucks, but it's important
the the appliques are delicate and not too big, beading can be done to complement
the beading on a gown too.

Gold.- Metallic gold is also another hot ticket, there aren't many laces that are
pretty enough and not gaudy looking that are also gold, I was lucky to find some
that is not the very expensive Chantilly trim. I have done this veil is many different
lengths, from shoulder to cathedral and love them all!

Cascade.- Whether is a single tier, short or long, brides want the veil to look like
it has many layer but with out the bulk, so i made a special cascade cut that keeps
the veil sheer and light, it can be with unfinished edge, also know as clean edge
or you can request a pencil edge, rolled edge or add some rattail cord or satin ribbon
perhaps some lace appliques or crystals? I am dying to make it with some rhinestones
all around, or little tiny flowers? how about little flowers with a rhinestone in the
middle? OMG the options are just endless. I need to make one of these in cathedral
and see what it looks like, ta ta!

The Bridal Bazaar 2015-Prevue

Today I took a trip downtown San Diego, at the convention center, that's
where the Bridal Bazaar took place, I was glad I went so many pretty things!
I highly recommend to all brides to go to events like this one, you get so many ideas
and you get to see in person all kinds of decorations, venues, photographers, music

Let's start with some fashion from Prevue:
 Lace, lace, lace, and more lace and some or a lot of bling!
The beaded accessories with lots of sparkle are still here and I think they are
here to stay, so are the blush colored gowns that I have to say, got the most attention.
The ladies where super nice and answered lots and lots of questions from brides that
stopped by to see their wonderful gowns and accessories.
More from Prevue, from the runway:

 I don't think any bridesmaid would say no to a gorgeous dress like this!:
 Check out the back on this dresses, on the colorful flower girl she looked adorable!
 One of the tendencies I noticed was the color under the lace or tulle skirts on the weddings
gowns, they look amazing, golds, pinks, blush and champagne colors. I have had a couple
of brides contact me about making something that matches for the veil on this style and I always
suggest to get the samples of tulle before purchasing, I saw at least 3 different blush colors, 4 golds
2 champagnes and a couple of light pinks. The gown below has a blush under the lace, I loved it!

More to come, this time I took a better camera, my Nikon P530 so the pictures where
better than last year LOL.

More to come soon, but let me say good night with this shoes:
