My friend is studying Photography and we decided to do a wedding photoshoot to help build her portfolio. I made a couple accessories and borrowed the clothes from our universitys theatre costume shop. I thought Id share the accessories I made!

For the garter, I used a chiffon ribbon with the smaller fluer-di-lis ribbon topstitched on top, and the viel was made with polka dot tulle, with the same chiffon ribbon gathered into a circle, feathers, a brooch, and lots of hot glue!

Check out more pictures and the full story in my blog and my friends photography website, KM Photography.

My friend edited some more pictures showing off another accessory I made!

The clip is a circle of tulle, basted around the edge, and pulled tight to make a bubble. I then scrunched it down, sewed a jewel over the ooky stitches, added some feathers and a clip and voila! Easy ten-minute hair clip!

Again, thanks for looking!

Absolutely LOVE that veil. It'd be cute even as a non-wedding accesory.

What material did you use for the main part of the veil? I love the polka dots and beading around it.

It was just tulle with cute dots. It came on one of those mini spools that Joanns and Hobby Lobby have on end caps.

I'm glad you like it! Thanks for looking!

That came out super adorable.  I always loved the old-fashioned birdcage silhouette of that sort of veil.  I'm really impressed with how your beading and all turned out - I made my sister's veil (a cathedral-style silhouette) and I know I had a bear of a time.  Yours looks so effortlessly perfect!
