Shopping for the perfect dress is just as important as hunting for the perfect accessories to top it all off. Whether you’re a traditional bride or are opting for a more bohemian feel, the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” mantra can come into play with these accessories created by local designers. From tiaras to garters and veils, these treasures are meant to make your look more personal on your special day.
Jewelry designer Jill Reno believes every story is romantic and unique which is why she designs her bridal jewelry to be beautiful and individually unique, just like the bride. Reno incorporates rare gemstones when designing to create pieces that have their own style and character.
From the red carpet of the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards to the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, Joyce Echols’ shoes have made several appearances — including being worn by country superstar Miranda Lambert and E! News‘ Alicia Quarles. The Italian-made shoe line sticks to Texas roots drawing inspiration from barbed wire, bullets and pistols.
Specializing in one-of-a-kind floral arrangements and art pieces (with a focus on preserved flowers and botanicals), Houston-based designer Megan LaCroix looks at every floral arrangement as a piece of art. From the bouquet to a custom crown, LaCroix incorporates paint, objects of nature, textiles and salvaged materials in her work.
