While most brides typically stick to tradition, there remain a select group that go against the grain in creating a memorable and unique ceremony.

It is that final piece that tops off your gown and adds just a little more glamour to your look. While you can select from a variety of accessories; bracelets brooches, and necklaces, this season's trends are centered around headpieces.  

From elaborate lacy perfection, whimsical feathery details, to the classic elegance of jeweled pins, no detail is just alike. Not at all like tiaras or crowns, this season's trend is a bit more tasteful. A smaller ...

I have always known the power of a dress.  From the time that I was very young dresses have always been IT for me.  I am guessing about how old I was, but I am pretty sure I was around 8 years old when I was flipping through the family JC Penny Catalog that I saw my first wedding dress.  It was very 80’s with its big puffy sleeves and beaded Alencon lace cutouts all over the dress and they all had these pointed veil head pieces like from Luke & Laura’s wedding from General Hospital.
