My second Wedding Fair, bestsellers and more

You know this feeling: you are waiting for something, the time is dragging on and it seems that it will never happen. But voila, with a blink of an eye the long-awaited event has come and gone! After 2 months of rather intensive preparations yesterday I took part in my second Wedding Fair ever and the first one in the new area. The event was organised by Norfolk Brides (many thanks to Dalia) and was held at the beautiful Drayton Old Lodge wedding and conference centre. As a result of a lot of advertising on social media and in the local press, we had a decent footfall. 
Here is how my stand looked at the Fair:

Despite a very chilly day the morning started very busy and continued up until lunchtime. The second half was slower partially probably due to the local football game. I saw many more genuinely interested brides and their mothers than at my first Fair. The most popular item turned out to be my wedding butterflies as hair clips, brooches and headbands.
The oat pearl headband with a large white rose was second most popular along with veil fascintors and wedding hats.
This unique headband in the roaring 20s style can be purchased from my Etsy shop. I can also make to order similar headbands in silver grey and golden colours.
 Given the number of business cards and leaflets handed out let us hope for a busy forthcoming wedding season. Meanwhile I shall continue working on new wedding designs which I will share with you here 🙂

Bridal garland headpiece

A bridal halo with double cherry blossom

Well, you have probably noticed that recently I have created quite a number of wedding designs. Although, I love to create bridal accessories as much as flowers for other occasions and even for every day, the reason I am concentrating on the wedding theme is because in a month (exactly a month from today!) I am taking part in a large Wedding fair in this new for me area. The Drayton Old Lodge Wedding Fair is held on 17 March at this elegant Edwardian manor house just 10 minutes drive from central Norwich. I have been placed in the Vintage room, which is another reason to concentrate on bridal floral accessories with a vintage feel to them.
Here is the creation of the last week: an open bridal wreath with double cherry blossom in soft pinks and mellow yellows. I used habotai for flowers and pongee for twigs (all 100% pure silk). As always I hand painted all the elements using colours for silk. The size of the wreath can be regulated with a silk ribbon at the back which is useful because you can wear it higher or lower depending on how you like it.

A similar wreath can be made with just white flowers or maybe only pink depending on the colour scheme of a wedding. The bridal wreath can be purchased from my Etsy shop.
I do find this floral garland very romantic i must say. And what is your opinion?
