You’ve seen my dress (I had a fitting earlier this summer and it looked great!), so I thought I would give you a quick update about what I’m planning to accessorize it with.
The Green Wedding Shoes (Nina Shoes in my favorite color):

(The lighting in this picture wasn’t the best. Sorry about that, but you get the idea)
Flower Hair Clip (custom made by Stephanie James). We emailed about the details and then she sent it to me in the mail. She’s absolutely wonderful to work with (though super busy, so give her some lead time).

When we got married in England, we had two people in our wedding party: our brothers. Our Best Men, they were amazing. And for their wedding gifts we took the more ‘traditional’ route of giving them their wedding accessories: purple tie and cuff links for Alex’s brother, green tie and cuff links for my brother. Sorted.
Our wedding party in California, however, is much bigger: we each have a maid of honor, three bridesmaids plus my best friend is officiating. That’s 9 ladies total.
For ages now, we’ve known that we want our guests to wear white knots for marriage equality during the wedding. My maid of honor dutifully tied them and stored them in a clean Tupperware box months ago for safe keeping on the big day. We haven’t quite figured out how we’ll distribute them–in baskets and handed out before the ceremony or on the table during the reception–but they’ll be there. Regardless, we knew we wanted to get fancier ones for our ladies (and probably our parents & siblings as well) from Holden Marks, The Official White Knot Collection. While I’d love it if more than 10% of the net proceeds went to marriage equality campaigns, 10% is something and the lasting awareness even more. (I’ve also just emailed them to find out what their quantity discount is as $15/pin is a lot times 9 +)

But what to go with the pins? Are the pins enough?

One of my favorite things about New York City is the street vendors! In a one hour lunch I got some great halal food and also scored ties for our entire wedding party for just 5 dollars each!! They were the perfect color of blue and match the girl’s sashes perfectly. We wanted to silkscreen them with the damask pattern that has become our wedding theme. So we dusted off the Yudu and got to work!

I’ve been on the hunt for the right pair of green wedding shoes to go with my tea length dress FOREVER. I’m a little bit obsessed with all things lime green. But it’s not easy to find fancy shoes in this color. Every pair seemed to either have a four inch heel or a sky high price tag. Either way, they were out of my league. Finally, I stumbled upon Nina Shoes, and found a pair of apple green heels that looked cute and comfortable…for about $67 after a coupon. They are back ordered for a couple of months. As soon as they arrive, I’ll try them on and post a picture! In the meantime, if you are looking for a specific color for yourself or your bridal brigade, try their “design your own” feature.
