Bling is more than just a ring!

So many bouquets are being blinged up to match crystals and and diamonds to tie in with themes and dresses. I love it, but only the most tasteful of diamontes should be used. I can either stud the centres of flowers with diamontes or add clusters inbetween the flowers.

The diamontes come in a wide choice of colours and can be used to work in a colour scheme as seen here at Audrey D'Sa wedding last summer. The Chief Bridesmaid had bouquets that laid across there arms with modern looped leaves. It looked great

Kelly's wedding had loads of sparkle throughout her day and so I added clusters of diamontes to her bouquet. I made a butterfly wand to match the colours and sparkle which was perfect for the flower girl. These are ideal for toddlers as they will wave it around which looks really cute.

I even added glitter to the gel which sat in her goldfish bowltable centres.

Here the brides bouquet had the diamontes through the flowers. I had to thread them onto bear grass to create the effect. Pain stakingly slow and fiddlely -but worth it!

I can also add diamonte details to the stems, prehaps using a special brooch or find a vintage looking piece- they are everywhere in the shops now. Alternatively add sparkle to your shoes like I did saying "I do"
