Wedding Hair clip by RLRB

Super excited to share some photos of a wedding hair-clip I made for a friend.  Her wedding was this past weekend and she texted me a couple pictures of her hair with the accessory I made.  I must admit, actually seeing it on the beautiful bride made it look soo much better.  Her hairstyle and the way the clip placed perfectly in her hair was just oh so fabulous!

The wedding hair accessory is made out of beads, pearls, and Swarovski crystals.   The bride wanted to initally have feathers incorporated into her hairpiece but then because her wedding dress had such amazing beaded designs, I drew my inspiration from there.  I almost tried to create feather-like shapes out of beads.  And of course I added some crystals for some bling bling.

As some of you may know, my sister and I also LOVE accessories.  From everyday-wear to hairpieces for your big day, jewelry and accessories inspire us.  We sometimes get brides that approach us about creating hair accessories for their big day.

Above, are two hairpieces that my sister and I just completed for a bride.  Each hairpiece was handmade with wire and Swarovski crystals with our very own design.   The beauty of creating your own hairpiece is that you can play and alter each design until it’s ultimately what you love.  With wire, you can also easily maneuver sections until it’s the shape you envision.  We had so much fun creating these two pieces.  I especially loved how the headband turned out.  Such a statement piece that the bride or maid of honor can wear.

Here are a couple pictures of how the headband would look on.  Like I said, it is definitely a statement hairpiece and bling blinging! We absolutely love how it turned out.

Need a hairpiece for any occasion?  Feel free to contact us!  Whether it be wire work, using fabrics, creating baby clips/headbands, let us know your inquiry and we definitely can figure something out and create your desired hairpiece.


bridemaids steeze: beige & teal

Over the holidays a lot of our friends got engaged.  Love was definitely in the air!  I loved planning my own wedding.  I would love to do it all over again.  I loved planning and designing it.  Since I can’t redo my wedding, I thought I would create inspiration boards for future brides.  There is so much to choose from and everything can get very overwhelming.  So here’s my first inspiration board…beige and teal.  Each bridesmaid gets to pick their own beige dress and pair it up with teal shoes.  Win for the bridesmaids because they can re-use the dress!

Vera Wang – Black Wedding Dress?

Vera Wang! Omgahhh…  If I could get married again for fun, I would wear this!  Black or White?!  I love the structure of the bodice and the effortless whimsical detail of the dress cascading down to the floor.  It’s all about the details.  From all the wedding planning I did last year, the most easiest thing was picking my wedding dress.  I fell in love with a Vera Wang dress and I went everywhere trying to find something similar to it.  No dress could replace a Vera Wang Dress.  I went to about 4 bridal boutiques, but no luck.  My co-worker suggested to visit Erin Cole in Costa Mesa, but I hesitated because I knew it was pricey.  I followed them on Twitter anyways and found out they were going to have a Vera Wang Sample Sale, I called and got the last appointment.  I wanted to go just see the dresses, thinking I wasn’t going to buy anything.  My mom was in the Philippines and tax season was starting, so I was just looking at dresses and keeping tabs on my faves.  It was such a last minute appointment.  I mass texted my bridesmaids and two made it.  When I first walked in the store, a girl was trying on the dress of my dreams.  I went ahead and tried on dresses within my budget, but nothing “wowed” me.  Finally, I tried on the dress… and couldn’t stop thinking about it.   I had two dresses I liked, my friends liked another dress, but I liked my initial dress.  It was a sample sale so if I wanted to buy the dress with a discount then that day was the only day.  I hesitated and didn’t want to buy the dress without my Mom and sister.  To keep this long story short…I ended up buying the dress after hours with my sister and I couldn’t have made a better decision.  I love my dress!  It’s currently just hanging in my closet.  I’m trying to find ways on when I can wear it again!  A good tip for all you brides is to shop around for a dress, try it on, and wait for a sample sale.  You can get about 10-15% off during a sample sale.  Happy wedding dress shopping.
