For Sale

Brand new, never worn champagne colored lace & bead edged fingertip length veil - $45

After spending hours painstakingly hand-sewing the lace edging to this veil, I ended up changing my mind about it.  At my last dress fitting I just decided it didn't look quite right with my dress.  So it's in pristine condition having never been worn!  

The lace and bead work really is stunning!  I designed it myself, so it has that wide-edge mantilla look, but attaches behind your head like a regular veil.  I used a good quality, very soft tulle and a sturdy metal comb.  It's a great deal compared to what most places charge for veils like this (I couldn't believe David's charges $200 for a cheaply made veil in this style).  Free local pick up for I will ship it for an additional $10.   

Ring bearer pillow - $20

I made this cute little thing, and it was not easy!  But it turned out great, and it's a one-of-a-kind!  It's a very light blush pink matte satin with an ivory shiny satin layer over it.  Silk flower with a fancy button in the center.  Still in perfect brand new condition, because the kid never carried it down the aisle!!!

Program Baskets - $15 for both

Two white program baskets, perfect size for standard-sized programs!  Handles make it easy for someone to hold the baskets while passing them out.  They come with the orange and pink striped fabric liners you can see in the pictures below.   which can easily be taken out if those aren't your colors.  

Books - asking $5-$10 each, but I'll make you a deal if you buy more than one!

The first three are large hard cover books, asking $10 each.  Everything else is $5.  All are in great used condition - many are still like brand new!  Worst flaws are the first two, their dust jackets are a little beat up.  And "Bridal Bargains" has some dog eared pages. 

The titles are:
The Wedding Book by Mindy Weiss: no longer available
Signature Weddings by Michelle Rago: Written by a professional wedding planner.  She walks you through the process of how she does wedding design, step-by-step.  I honestly used her techniques and it really helped me pull together all my ideas into a cohesive plan for my wedding.  
Simply Elegant Flowers with Michael George: This guy is like the male Martha Steward of flower design.  If you have any desire to do your own wedding flowers, or just want to bring some ideas to your florist, you're going to want this book!  Full of great ideas and details explanations of his techniques.  
Bridal Bargains: Secrets to Throwing a Fantastic Wedding on a Realistic Budget:Chock full of ideas for how to save money on your wedding.  There are seriously some very good ideas in here, I used many of them and saved a bundle!  Nicely organized by area of the wedding.  One of the best features is their checklists of questions to ask vendors when you meet with them - I found the lists SUPER helpful, because if you've never planned a wedding before, you'd never even think to ask these things! 
101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married: Simple Lessons to Make Love Last: We wanted to do a little pre-marital counseling of our own, and this book was a great conversation started.  I found a lot of the pre-marital counseling types of books were either preachy or like an instruction manual that just bored you to death.  This one is basically stories with a lesson inside.  So it reads nicely, like a story, while still teaching you something and getting you and your fiance talking.  It's also nice way to take a break from the wedding planning and remember what this is all about - your MARRIAGE and the start of your lives together!
Paper Bouquets: There's a big trend right now for brides to make their own paper flowers.  Either for decoration at the reception or even for their own bouquets!  This book is the how-to manual.  I didn't end up doing it myself, but this book explains how really well! 
Veiled in Beauty: How to book on making veils and head pieces.  Relied exclusively on the instructions in this book to make my own veil, and it turned out perfectly!  I especially loved all the detailed explanations of the different veil styles, lengths, types of fabrics used, as well as how to make a wide variety of accompanying headpieces.
Beautiful Bridal Accessories You Can Make: This is a great little how-to book for the DIY bride!  Instructions, with awesome color pictures, for dozens of projects, including: ring bearer pillow, unity candle, bridal handbag, toasting flutes, cake and knife server, and a flower girl headband.  
Creative Wedding Florals You Can Make & Creative Beautiful Wedding Flowers: Together, these two books explain literally everything you could possibly need to know to confidently do your own wedding flowers!  Unfortunately, I chickened out and ended up hiring a florist.  But if you're planning to DIY your wedding flowers, you'll want to read this books!  They seriously have an excellent flower glossary, instructions for how to properly prepare and store your flowers, and step-by-step instructions (with color photos!) for how to make every flower project imaginable.
