Stella and Dot Special Occasion and Bridal Jewelry. Make a statement and stay on budget!


Yay, It’s your special day!!  You’ve chosen the dress, the cake, the venue, the flowers, so what’s next? Your wedding jewelry of course!  This is a fun opportunity to take your bestie, mom or future mother-in-law out for some bonding as well as a time to choose the pieces that reflect you!I have some helpful tips for you as you plan your wedding jewelry.

Your wedding gown is one of the centerpieces of this special day and you want your jewelry to complement your dress, not clash.  For a traditional white gown stick with softer hues like platinum settings and pearls.  If you’re wearing an ivory gown yellow gold is a great way to bring out the undertones of the gown as well as stand out.  Diamond-white gowns work with any metal really, from yellow to rose gold to platinum, it’s very versatile!

Your necklace and earrings are important but don’t let your wrist go lonely! For your cake cutting pictures, wedding ring pictures, and any close-ups a beautiful bracelet will not go unnoticed for sure!  For a more traditional look, try a bracelet with lots of art deco sparkle which makes for a gorgeous vintage feel!  Colored jewels like blue topaz (my favorite and something blue!) and peridot make for a colorful fun experience!

Check out these gorgeous and affordable Stella and Dot pieces! Maybe you will find something absolutely perfect for you wedding or special occasion. :-)

How to decide on what flower girl dress is right for you & your little flower!

Something to keep in mind when choosing the perfect flower girl dress is formality. The formality of her dress will depend on the formality of the wedding. If you are having your wedding on the beach, then your flower girl’s dress should be something in light and airy colors, such as pastels (light pinks, blues, yellows, etc.) and simple designs. If you are having your wedding in a ballroom setting, then you want to pick a fancy dress for your flower girl.

When choosing the style of your flower girl’s dress, keep in mind that you want to stay within the style of the wedding. As she is walking down the aisle in front of the bride, gently tossing the flower petals on the floor, all eyes in the room will be on her first. You can stay calm in knowing that even though wedding styles have dramatically changed over the years, the style of the flower girl dress has not changed that much. You can choose to have this beautiful little girl’s flower dress made into a special little version of the bride’s wedding gown or even a flower girl version of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

When choosing the color of your little flower girl’s dress, you also want to maintain the colors in the wedding. If you choose to go with having her dress in a miniature version of the bride’s gown, but you still want some color in it, you can incorporate some of the color scheme by putting pretty ribbons and bows in her hair or maybe some small flowers pinned on her dress or a hair wreath (carefully of course).

It does not matter how young or old your flower girl is, you still want her to be comfortable in her dress. She will look very beautiful in her flower girl dress, but I can guarantee that if she is not comfortable, your whole wedding will follow suit. Little girls love dressing up for special occasions and they should. Even though we are talking about flower girl dresses, you need to keep in mind that you will have to pick out a matching pair of shoes that she can wear for a long period of time and not start whining. It is recommended you buy her flats (no matter how much she may beg for heels) that are made of patent leather.

Wrinkle Factor and Quality
You want to keep in mind that little girls do not sit still either at the reception nor will they stand still while you say your vows. They also will not remain still even though they are already dressed while you try to put on your wedding gown either. Since she will want to move around and on the off chance you can get her to stay seated while you dress, you want to make sure that your flower girl’s dress stays neat and pretty. Always pick fabrics that are not easily wrinkled and possibly ripped.

The weather and time of year will play a big part in the style of the flower girl dress you pick out. If you are getting married in the summer or spring, then you want to make sure you do not get something that has long sleeves as she will be very hot and may tend to complain more. If your wedding is going to be in the winter or fall, you don’t want to pick a dress that has short sleeves as she will get cold. You also want to pick your flower girl dress in accordance with what colors are for the season, just as you did when you set your wedding date.

There are two different lengths that you should consider when picking your flower girl dress, floor-length and tea-length. If you choose tea-length, make sure the socks or tights that you choose to go with it are appropriate for the style of the dress you choose. If you decide to go with floor-length, make sure that your flower girl will not trip over it. You do not want your beautiful little flower girl to fall and get embarrassed in front of everybody. In my opinion, tea-length is probably your best choice.

We all know that in planning and setting up your wedding, you have a budget that you have to follow as getting married can cost a lot of money. If money becomes an issue when choosing which flower dress to buy, you can look at purchasing her dress online or you can just buy her a nice party dress. If you choose to shop online for your flower girl dress, you can find a lot of great deals because shopping online can be cheaper than buying in a bridal shop. If you go with buying a party dress as a flower girl dress, make sure that you at least get one that complements the bridesmaid dresses.

Here are some great inspirations below on how to give your flower girl’s dress that special vintage boho flair with the above dresses! Add hair accessories to really amp up her look! 








Happy Planning!
