All that glitters…

We’ve been having a frequently occurring issue of not being able to find gold wedding accessories-whether it be a belt or headpiece-they are just hard to find. BUT, we happened to catch wind of a new line while dress shopping at Bliss Bridal in Brookfield yesterday and thought we would share the great news with you. Be prepared to fall in love… PRESENTING (da-da-da-da!) Thomas Knoell’s new Watters line with bold and GOLD accessories. And just because I’m in love with these, for your viewing pleasure, the Athena Cuffs. *swoon*   Honestly, they’re all pretty much my favorite-how can you not be enamored by them? After viewing all of his pieces, there is one thing I noticed-I haven’t had that many brides lately with headpieces. Headpieces are definitely a do. It is just one more way your can have yourself dripping in jewels, so why not? Our Inspiration: Erin Kuhn was one of our brides from this past summer who had a headpiece and rocked it. She definitely goes to show that they can be done beautifully. Our picks:             Afraid of going overboard? Check out this smaller piece. You can always make a little go a long way! Just remember all that glitters doesn’t have to be gold; the line also comes in silver and rose gold! Want another option for glittering accessories? Check out Jaxie Bridal in person or...
