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 him...it 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.

I'm super excited to have Sweet Tooth Confections making all the cupcakes for our big day!  They're local out of San Jose and have a crazy variety of flavors to choose from.  We're outfitting them with our custom guitar picks so people can grab a sweet at the end of the night and take a souvenir home with them.  If you like flavor and creativity, you'll love what this husband and wife duo has to offer!

Are You For Real???

Are You For Real???

Going with a theme-centric wedding makes it easy to do things a little...different!  We recently took a spontaneous trip to Disneyland which prompted us to have our first caricature done.  I asked if they could make us into 80's glam-rock stars rather than Disney characters and this was the outcome.  Big shout out to artist Brooke.  

It turned out so great (and he really nailed my waist line ;-)  so it will be framed at our wedding for friends to sign!
