Wedding: Fascinators with a Personal Note

 STICK A FASCINATOR ON IT

After the Royal wedding, Fascinators definitely had a world stage.

THE FABULOUS FLOWER GIRLS IN DVF for GAP

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie at the Royal Wedding April 2011

If you're a fan of the 20's and the burlesque scene, like me, then fascinators needed no world wide coverage to make it to your main stream. Since the wedding was based on a 20's glamour theme, feathers, rhinestones, and netting were an ideal situation.

The weekend before the wedding while Ari was enjoying his bachelor party, I crafted feather fascinators for the wedding party and mothers.

There were some left over invitations, so I used them on the head pieces to make each one more personal (and it was a good use of extra paper laying around)

The End Result:





And the process:
For Ari's mom, I cut out his face from the invite. Brides all know mother's love their sons more than anything so I thought that would please her ;) It also had a cut out of the words "L'Chaim"
This fascinator was for one of the flower girls. I included the town where the wedding took place since that was her first time in my tiny town. She, like me, loves fashion so I thought she would like the pic of my sparkly bracelet. She also is boy crazy!! so I knew she would get a kick out of the collage "marry boyfriend"
The working desk. Supplies: Feathers, netting, wire, hot glue, needle and thread, Hot Tea with Milk
This I made for the other flower girl (the one that has not discovered boys yet).
Craft Projects = Hot Glue Gun
Cocktail Fabulous, that's all
