New From Rew : Statement Necklace

Vintage Rhinestone Statement Necklace
I have long wanted to make a statement piece - a one of a kind, stand out original piece. But I've been so busy with new baby and custom bridal orders that time and inspiration have definitely been lacking. Well - I recently came across a parcel of stones that gave me the inspiration I needed, and I managed the time when my mother-in-law was in town helping out (yes... I have help and readily accept it whenever it is offered).

I am so, so excited to introduce today's R.E. Style feature! The first time I saw Jason and Andie's creations my jaw literally dropped from complete amazement. Their Etsy shop, Andie's Specialty Sweets is a virtual wonderland of confectionery delights including edible embellishments and decorative candies. Stop by and marvel at expertly crafted edible sugar strawberries,exquisitely detailed chocolate filled candy seashells, art nouveau starburst lollipops, and statement jewelry that one can devour after wearing.Though Andie tells me otherwise, I imagine their candy-making kingdom to resemble something like Willie Wonka's factory... full of fantasy and whimsy.

In the Details : Fabric Bouquets

The bridal bouquet is just as important to the bridal ensemble as the accessories, the shoes, the hair, and the gown itself. My own bouquet was gorgeous. It was full, it was delicately hued, it was complete eye candy... and it was dead after a week. Had I known about fabric flower bouquets at the time, I'm pretty sure I would have invested in a bouquet that would have stayed beautiful for years to come.

Color Palette : Sand & Sea

Sand, surf and sky... is there a more beautiful setting for a spring or summer wedding? Today's color palette reflects the soft tranquility of the beach, played out in gentle hues of driftwood gray and muted coral, accented by crisp white and classic beige. Romantic. Intimate. Relaxed. This is one of my favorite color combinations - so much so that I used it at my own beach wedding!

Trendwatch : Mismatched Bridesmaids

Gone are the days of uncomfortable, unflattering, one time wear, matchy bridesmaid dresses. The growing trend is for brides to embrace a mismatched approach to their attendant's attire. Bridesmaids are now wearing dresses that not only fit their body shapes, but also their personalities.

What's New With Rew - April 2012 Wrap-up

April 2012 was crazy! Just. Plain. Crazy. But most definitely in a wonderful kind of way. Here's a wrap-up of what went on over the past 30 days:

**I had a new baby!**
Baby Teagan Lonnier Gholson was born on April 12th. She is amazing. We were all smitten immediately with her pouty lips, tiny feet, and sweet disposition. Little Asher can't help giggling and saying "she's so cute!" every time he passes her. As the youngest of my three children and the only girl on my husband's side of the family, she's in for some serious spoiling I'm sure.
