Wedding dress belt and bridal headband by Jenny Dayco

A few months ago, my work husband, photographer Josh Williams, asked me to make his sister’s bridal accessories for her October 10th wedding! The outfits of the bride and groom are such an important part of a wedding, especially the bride’s dress as this is one of the biggest things that people talk about after the event. To help me out with my designs for her accessories, Courtney sent me some inspiration pictures she’d found, along with some pictures of her dress! Accessories are an essential for every outfit, let alone your wedding day outfit. It was so important that her accessories were perfect and matched her dress as well as they could. Her dress was so gorgeous, it reminded me of the sort of dresses you would expect to see from luxury wedding dress brands like Winnie Couture (for Wedding Dresses in Atlanta) for example. The pressure was on as I knew that the bride would be wearing these accessories all day, and being photographed in them! They had to be perfect for her special day.

Despite having these pictures, I still needed some direction from Josh as to what would pair well with her dress, so we went to downtown LA together to scout for some supplies! It was Josh’s first time going into all the supply stores, so he was (not surprisingly!) visually overwhelmed! (Plus the 90+ degree heat didn’t help either) But, after a zigzag search of all kinds of sparkly bridal trims and goodies, we finally narrowed it down to a couple of crucial pieces to start from! And pictured above is the final result of her accessories. Hopefully they will match her dress perfectly, I’m sure she’ll look amazing on her big day. I’m looking forward to making more bridal pieces in the future, and seeing the pictures from Josh’s sisters wedding day soon!
