Rainbows and Leopard and Leather OH MY! - DIY Accessories

So my fiance has 1 idea for every 20 I have for our wedding day, so when he has an idea I let him have it.  His number one request was to have all of his groomsmen wear a rainbow of suits.  Suits from Opposuits.

This was a bit shocking, but then again if you know really wasn't.  See pic of him below.

I had to come up with a way for him to have his rainbow array of suits, but still keep it wedding-classy.  So I decided to have my girls wear black dresses.

That's him in the orange with his Best Man.

But black by itself would be pretty boring especially with my whole Rock 'N' Roll theme so I had to find some ways to amp it up.  Each of the girls will be accessorizing with the color to compliment the groomsman they stand with.  As you can see in the picture above, the ladies with wider dresses will be adding a petticoat for a pop of color, but I wanted to do something else for all of them that's really different.  

I found a company called Shoes of Prey that does custom designed shoes. You get to pick every inch of the shoe with a variety of colors and materials.  I love animal print so I combined each of their colors with a furry print heel.

See swatches below

Then I started to think about what kind of jewelry they could wear, and I came up with this.  I'm hand-making guitar pick earrings with some picks I had lying around and adorning them with Swarovski crystals. These are only 4 of the 6 colors so far.  They're turning out so fabulous I may do them for myself and our mothers.  If you like what you see check them out at my Etsy store.
