How gorgeous is this Southern California wedding? We're falling off our chairs in the office today as we post this image of a gorgeous table dripping with fresh florals...
We've always been proud to offer specific, personalized LGBTQ+ accessories because love wins and we love love. All kinds, colors, shapes and sizes. Here's a roundup of some of our classic gay and lesbian wedding must-haves, along with a few of our newest styles in all their rainbow glory.
I'm excited to say that last month, we relaunched our entire signage collection with a brand new color card. All ribbons are made in the USA (with the exception of Silver and Gold). Our previous color card offered about 20 color choices. We've doubled that, including lots of yummy in-between shades that are soft, romantic and completely on-trend.
Brooch bouquets are perhaps one of the fastest growing wedding trends in the bridal market. Gone are the days of getting rid of your wedding flowers after the big day, or shelling out hundreds of dollars to get your fresh florals preserved in a box. Your bouquet is now something that you can keep on display after the big day, and pass down to your children when the time comes.
Not only are there endless styles and details to nail down when it comes to designing your bouquet (no two are the same)- there are several ways to go about collecting the pieces that will make up your bouquet.
While we offer a full-service option (where we supply all of the brooches), we’ve also created several bouquets using the bride’s pieces. Brides collect pieces in a variety of different ways. Some inherited a collection from family. Some girls are shoppers and hit up stores like Charming Charlie for new sparkly brooches, or thrift stores to add some vintage charm. Something old, something new? Check!
There's a huge giveaway going on right now between The Ritzy Rose
and Charming Charlie
! Using gorgeous brooches, earrings and necklaces sent to me from their charming style team, I created this exclusive Ritzy Rose brooch bouquet perfect for any nuptials.
Just an example of a few of the brooches in Charming Charlie's collection.

They sent me a package dripping with pearls, rhinestones, and metallic beauties. Of course, I added some vintage Ritzy Rose brooches to finish it off in my signature style, and voila! This stunning bouquet could be yours by entering on Pinterest

When Miranda Lambert came to town to perform at Nationwide Arena in June 2012, we bought our tickets right away. When I mentioned to her mom, Bev, that we were excited to see her perform, she told me that Miranda would love to meet me & Jason! Last May, as I created her brooch bouquet for her wedding to country heartthrob Blake Shelton, the whole thing happened in the blink of an eye- I was hired to create the bouquet a week and a half before the big day, I received her heirloom pieces about a week out, and I had to burn a sick day to complete the bouquet and get it back to Texas in time. People asked if I got to meet Miranda. Until last week I considered myself lucky to have had a phone conversation with Bev during Ran's bachelorette party weekend, while I asked questions about the details of the bouquet and Miranda answered them in the background.
That all changed this June. About a half hour before Miranda took the stage, we were backstage where we would get to meet her momentarily.
Not only is she the cutest little thing ever (and she sure is tiny!), she is the sweetest, most down to earth girl around. The second I walked around the corner and said "Hi! I'm Jen, I'm the girl who made your..." she grabbed me, hugged me, and we started jumping up and down together. She then ran around and told her photographers and security guard that I am the girl who made her bouquet. After thanking me profusely, she told me how many great tweets and compliments she got for it. It's now locked up and permanently on display in her showcase, undoubtedly flanked by dozens of Grammy's and CMAs.
Check out the autograph she gave me!!!
After I thanked her for letting me create this for her, I told her that shortly after her wedding, I did the whole quit-your-day-job thing and now get to design for all of my incredible clients full time. She expressed how happy she is that things worked out so well for us.
I thought it was pretty funny when Miranda told me she met a fan last week who told her that the girl who created the "infamous Miranda Lambert brooch bouquet" would in fact be creating hers as well. I can't to figure out which bride that was (feel free to drop me a hint below in the comment section). In case you were wondering, she totally remember meeting you. Did I say that she is down to earth? This conversation happened moments before she stepped out and rocked a full house of 15,000 fans.
