Hey Brides, Hey! My name is Beth and I’m the owner/designer at B in a Bonnet, and oh how I love all things bridal.
My love affair with weddings started at a very young age. I was a bleary eyed eight year old when my Mom woke me up for Princess Diana’s wedding at 5 am, and back then you had to watch live television! In between spoonfuls of lucky charms, and my Mom saying how wrinkled Diana’s dress had become, I became mesmerized by her 25 foot train. I was instantly fascinated – Total goner! The bridal bug had bit me.
Transforming vintage & current supplies into bridal accessories is B in a Bonnet’s specialty. I specialize in reconstructions of bridal gowns into bridal belts & headpieces. Whether I find my goodies at antique stores, estate sales, or a thrift stores, I always squeeze as much love and fabulousness into every piece. Every bride should feel her most fabulous on the wedding day! Just like Princess Diana, only less wrinkly!
Gold you say? Yes, I do! The ancient Egyptians believed that wearing a gold band, on the fourth finger of the left hand (vena amoris, the vein of love) ran directly from the heart to the tip of the finger. With the Egyptian pyramids still standing 4,000 years later, I’ma gonna take their word on it! There are so many gorgeous shades of gold, that you might have a hard time deciding which one to choose for your gilded bridal scheme. If a soft, romantic feel is what you’re aiming for, there’s rose gold. It’s just so lovely and subtle – even Beats by Dre and Apple have incorporated it into the electronic world. A full-out glamorous, luxe celebration- 24k gold is your bell ringer, timeless and so very classic. So many endless choices and fabulous possibilities! Remember brides, all that glitters is gold, so….stay golden.
