I had the plan to make hair pieces for myself and my bridesmaids but with everything else that I had taken on, I realized that I wasn't going to have time for that project. I am so happy with my decision to "outsource" the job to the lovely Kaelah. Kaelah whipped up these pieces for me and the ladies so quickly and got them in the mail *just* before the mail strike! Phew! We were all so happy to wear a little Hive & Honey on the wedding day.
I decided to make the ties because we couldn't find exactly what we were looking for in any stores. We wanted thin, non-shiny ties so I scouted out some fabric and tried my hand at tie making. I think they turned out super cute!
The bouquets were one of my favourite things about the wedding. I made them out of white fabric, 3 different types for my bouquet and 2 for the bridesmaids. I made mine a bit larger and a little more detailed by adding buttons in the centre of some of the flowers.
UrbanOg thanks to my sweet pal cb. I ordered these blue ones as a "backup" because I thought the yellow ones might have been too big. When I tried both pairs on with my dress and saw that the blue was an EXACT match with the bridesmaid dresses, I decided that I had to go with these ones.
I told the bridesmaids to wear whatever shoes they wanted but to try to stick with grey, nude or white. I think it looks really cute that the girls are wearing different shoes. Great choices ladies!
As soon as we started to plan the wedding I requested that Ivan and the boys wear Converse. I personally love my Chucks and I think they look awesome for weddings!
Oh my gosh! This post turned out super long...and it's just accessories! I hope you guys enjoyed and I can't wait to share more with you!
EDIT: I forgot to mention...all photos are by our lovely photographer Kara Lodder!
What a great post! I love it how much attention you guys paid to those accessories.ReplyDelete
I even hope my boyfriend will wear Converse shoes on our wedding.
These pictures are absolutely stunning! You look so lovely, and I love your shoes! They're so darling. And I've always loved the idea of Converse in weddings - although I think I'd be the one wearing them ;)ReplyDelete

I love the small pops of that gorgeous yellow tone you incorporated through out from the thread used to attach the buttons to your bouquet, the guys ties, nail polish and the Hive+honey fascinators! It seems like you achieved that perfect balance an artsy + DIY wedding that still reads as sophisticated which is a task all bloggers hope to obtain! Thank you for sharing with us all.

So so beautiful!! ALL of it! I adore the hairpieces especially, and LOVE the lace gloves (I may just use that for my winter wedding plans) and the fabric bouquets are just absolutely stunning. You have incredible taste, as ever =) xReplyDelete

Amaaaazing accessories. I really love the yellow nails against the blue dresses. And your shoes were perfect! Very nice. Oh! And the buttons in the center of the flowers... ahhh! Sea MarieReplyDelete

how were your shoes comfort-wise? i need to pick up some new shoes for a wedding and i'm trying to find some that are affordable and comfy... not easy :(
I love all the color choices you made! Very pretty and simple. Beautiful photos, too! Everything is so so pretty.ReplyDelete
thank you so much everyone! you are all so sweet.ReplyDelete
sylvia: my shoes were surprisingly comfy until I had to stand on grass. The heels sank in so I had to stand on my toes only...not comfy. But yeah, other than that they weren't bad at all. And they were cheap!!

Everything is so beautiful and harmonizes really well without looking matchy matchy you have such good taste! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures :DReplyDelete
ps. Your hair looks lovely, perfect haircolor for a bride i must say
Just beautiful. That blue and yellow is my favourite colour combination.ReplyDelete
wow where to start... I loved all the head pieces, the necklace was a cute thing to add, the ties look really good, the boquets I love how you can see some buttons, your shoe color <3 omg !! and the little gloves are reaaaally cute with the whole thing <3ReplyDelete
Everything is so perfect. I adore the color palate you chose and all the things you made yourself. The fascinators look great and so do those handmade ties. I enjoy that the bridesmaids wore their own, different shoes and the chucks all the guys wore. Plus, the yellow nail polish adds such a nice touch. I like that you wore it too! Everything goes together so nicely. You had a lovely wedding!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love all of this! I can't even go into each accessory because everything is just so cute and so perfect! Beautiful!!!!ReplyDelete
I'm a little late on the commenting, but I absolutely love how much time and thought you put into all the details of your wedding! I think my favorite part was the bouquets, I'm sure they looked even more amazing in real life! This is beautiful. :)ReplyDelete
LOVE the boys' shoes! My husband almost did that too but changed his mind at the last minute. I think it's awesome!ReplyDelete
Converse and weddings just go together. And you have to love a relaxed bride who lets you choose things that are comfortable.ReplyDelete
My really good friend got married and had us all wear the same (brown) dresses with different colored sashes, and then we matched our converse shoes to the color of our sashes. It was awesome and comfy.
And we all got pocket knives that matched our sashes too as bridesmaid's gifts. Awesome! hahaha
