New About a Bride Designs --- the Summer 2011 Collection

It's the start to "What I Did during My Summer" essay....
So far, I have created 25 new designs for the About a Bride Shimmer & Tulle Collection....going for a slightly more casual look, rather than full out formal/bridal. And YES, even at a cocktail party or with a fabulous summer dress, you can wear a birdcage veil or feathers!
So GO FOR IT, don't be afraid to stand out!

All items are available for sale. Custom orders can also be arranged.

And by the way, if you are looking for a "boy-item"...any of the girl hair bows can be made into a bowtie for your baby boy or toddler! Or, if you are looking for a hair accessory to put on your newborn infant, any of the flowers or hairbows can have an elastic ribbon attached.

About a Bride has a new blog home. So on that note, welcome! You'll get to know the boutique as the "MUST STOP" Spot for the unique bride...most of the designs, including those of the dresses are from smaller designers (instead of the bigger mass produced companies). Many of the designers, including myself, are artisans, jewelry makers and other like minded individuals. Only in the store, can you find organic bridal dresses with ostrich feathers, wood, shells and hemp fabrics, tutu dresses for your flowergirl and blush pink veils.

A quick "teaser" of what's sold in store:

Some of the dresses...

And some of the accessories...

We also have jewelry, veils (as mentioned), garters and an amazing assortment of unique favors and event decor (aisle runners, parasols, kissing balls...)

Oh and an extra special giveaway --- since About a Bride is new here on Blogland, we are "looking" for followers. So when we reach 50 followers, there will be a giveaway (a garter, a favour etc) to one of them.
