a while back one of my customers bought this piece to wear at her wedding........she came to me with a custom order request for some similar pieces for the other ladies in the ceremony....custom work is usually pretty hard for me since i only use vintage material and don't usually have large quantities...but because she is so sweet, was pretty open to my ideas and gave me quite a few colors to work with i was able to do it!

these are the flowers i decided to work with..

and these are the final five pieces for the bridesmaids....

the bride
the other ladies

i'm hoping she sends some more photos....i'll post them if she does

congrats jessica!
