Kim Wright
Stella & Dot Star Stylist

What Kim has to say: “I have operated my own belt/embroidery business, Catchy Accessories, for six years, which has been great fun, but when I discovered Stella & Dot I jumped at the chance to represent such a super jewelry line. The company’s pieces are incredibly stylish and not only do I love them, but I knew my friends and family would too! I didn’t need to open my own boutique and worry about leases, inventory, websites, and employees! I was thrilled that I could launch this business RIGHT AWAY and work it right alongside my Catchy Accessories business! No risk at all. The product is so stylish and affordable, it sells itself! Tons of my customers have already seen Stella & Dot jewelry featured in fashion magazines, like Instyle, People, Oprah and more!”

In honor of our Wed for Less post that focused on Etsy this week, I thought it would be fitting to incorporate a post about a huge trend right now, handcrafted statement necklaces. Statement necklaces are amazing, beautiful, and can transform a plain wedding dress into an gorgeous wedding ensemble. From day to evening styles, these necklaces can be incorporated in all kinds of looks. The great thing about these pieces is that well after your wedding day is gone you can throw on one of these with jeans and a tee and feel just as pretty as you did on your wedding day. Not to mention it will be a great reminder to you and your hubby of that wonderful day. There are so many to choose from all over the web but these are specifically from Etsy.

Statement Necklaces 1R to L: Silk Infusion Chains Necklace $69, La Paon Grande Sequined Necklace $35, Natural Cotton Flowers $38

Statement Necklaces 2Frayed Loved and Fearless Necklace $99, The Boyfriend Necklace $46, Buttercream Blossom $34

As I was randomly checking my google alerts, I was stopped in my clicking when I spied this site.  Emersonmade‘s handcrafted beauties take my breath away!  What great design with such individuality and a sense of romance.

Just thought I would tease you with their one-of-a-kind products this afternoon that are perfect twists on wedding attire details.  If you need more, visit their website @ www.emersonmade.com

For the bride…

Love the color and texture added with this peachy corsage.

Forgo a sash of color for this precious splash of rosette!

Add a flower in your hair with this sweet thing!

 For the groom and groomsmen…

How about these bouttonnieres?

One of my favorite ideas! This little flair for the groom's tie.

 For the bridesmaids…

A sweet corsage in place of a bouquet.

A fabulous gift for your bridesmaids is a small clutch like this one.
