Thank you David and all the #servicemen and #servicewomen stationed across the world to allow our way of life to continue. #happy4thofjuly
Her bra cups were too high and the sheer fabric at the center bodice did not lay properly
Linda is my #hurricaneharveybride. I remember clearly where I was when I received her text. I was in the middle of helping a friend move his parents’ belongings out of their home to the side of the road. They had lost everything during the flood and we were trying to help clean the aftermath. So many people were affected, including the bridal salon Linda purchased her dress from. At this point, she was responsible for her own alterations. Linda resides in Hawaii but had visited Houston to finish some of her wedding responsibilities. Can you imagine the worry when your custom designed gown doesn’t fit the way it was suppose to?
*I knew this was going to be an all night project since we needed to get this done before her flight back to Hawaii. I recorded the process to help others who might need to make this type of alterations. I used all the lighting I had to work through the night. I felt like I was getting ready for an emergency surgery 😬😅😜.
I also got to create Linda’s custom cathedral length veil for the church ceremony. She wanted something simple, elegant and timeless so I designed the drop veil for her special day. She had always imagined a long veil for her wedding and I wanted to make her dream come true.
To see how to bustle the Veil and Dress, feel free to view it below:
I am humbled at the opportunity to serve Linda+David. Thank you for visiting and Happy 4th of July!
I had the opportunity to demonstrate the LUXE DIY Veil Kit to the guests of Williams-Sonoma Town & Country Village. I had a great time showing them the different veil options they can create. It was rewarding to see them experience the possibilities from one veil kit 👰🏽. You can shop the kit at: https://squareup.com/store/youtiquebridal
I also fell in love 😍 with the married couples and their marriage tips. This warms my heart ❤️ because I enjoy learning and hearing how they make their relationship work. You can view my experience below.
I challenged the Gentlemen of Williams-Sonoma @wstowncountry to tie a Bow Tie in honor of their Father’s Day event. Watch and learn how to tie a bow tie from these talented gentlemen. See if you can resist smiling 🤣. They did a wonderful job and we had a lot of fun.😂 Excellent job gentlemen!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Well, I hope you have a great evening. Thank you for visiting!

Thank you for the store tour @alessandramiakashi1!
I hope all Mothers & Future Mothers receive the love and attention they deserve yesterday, today, and everyday.
Here is a #painting of my Mother in her younger years.
I get into an emotional wreck when I talk about my family. I truly do owe my life to this person in every way. I sometimes wonder how Mom was able to survive the Vietnam war running with a one year old in hand (me) and being pregnant with my Sister Linda. Like many leaving the Homeland at that time, she came to a new country not knowing the language, culture, and experiencing tragedy. My sister and I often talk about how amazing Mom is and if she can accomplish what she did for our family against all odds, there is no excuse for us not to accomplish our dreams. Her strong will and determination keeps me going when life gets a little tough – and it does get tough cause life is funny that way. Thank you Me and I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ you!
So to all the Supermoms and Supermoms-to-be, thank you for inspiring us and future generations. ❤️💐 Happy Mother’s Day!
It was an exciting weekend for Brides, Grooms, and vendors. Couples got to explore their wedding options as Vendors got to share their passions. As a vendor at the Dream Weddings Bridal Show, I was excited to launch the LUXE DIY Veil Kit. The kit includes all the high quality items needed to make your very own veil. I showed Brides up to 9 different veil styles created from one veil kit. I am happy to announce the launch was well received and a success. To view more photos, click here.
You can purchase your LUXE DIY Veil Kit for $32.99 and use the 10% Off Coupon Code PERFECTWEDDING10 at checkout. Visit YOUTIQUE BRIDAL SHOP. Create the veil yourself and you can use the savings toward other wedding projects.
For $32.99, the LUXE DIY Veil Kit includes everything you will need to create your very own veil and you will have exclusive access to the step-by-step video tutorial. Watch the promo video and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
What inspired me to create the kit? There are many little life lessons that came together in this kit.
First, it was inspired by my Lace Trim Veil. Like the Lace Trim Veil tutorial, I wanted Brides to have more than one option to design the veil. The Lace Trim Veil came with 3 options to design but the LUXE DIY Veil Kit came with up to 9 design options. The Kit gives you a basis to the design and you can go further by embellishing the veil yourself. With your imagination, it is possible to come up with more designs.
Second, When I taught classes on how to create my Camryn Flower, I realized many students did not know where to purchase each of the items so I would help them shop for supplies right before class. Many wanted to skip the shopping if there was an option and go straight into creating. This inspired the “KIT” idea.
Finally, most Brides I worked with was on a budget. If Brides could create a quality veil themselves, they would save money. As a designer, I understand the cost of time & labor and have the most respect for a Designer’s time and talent. But what if I can teach a Bride how to create her own veil with an easy step-by-step tutorial? She would be able to save money and use her savings toward other areas of her wedding.
All these ideas came together to create the LUXE DIY Veil Kit. Thank you for visiting and I hope you get inspired to create something EXTRAordinary.
It has been a long time since I last posted on my blog. I have been wanting to do it but when writing is not your strongest suit, it’s hard. Well, enough of making excuses! I decided today on Valentine’s Day that I will show my blog some love and update my readers, if I even have any;)
I will start with the most recent tutorial, the Rustic Ring Bearer Pillow. This was fun since I asked my community what style Ring Bearer accessory they would like to see – most voted Rustic. The choices were Rustic, Formal, or Steampunk. So here is the Rustic Ring Bearer pillow:)
The process was fun and the embroidery work connected me to my childhood. In August 2017, my best friend Cathy texted me the photo below during her Hurricane Harvey mandatory evacuation. I couldn’t believe she still had this coin purse I handmade for her from the 4th grade. This touched me on so many levels. First, I was surprised she still had it after all these years and second, it meant that much to her to evacuate with it. Now talk about feeling the Valentine’s love:) So her text was the main inspiration behind my Rustic Ring Bearer Pillow. I knew I was going to somehow incorporate embroidery work since the last time I tried it was the fourth grade.
Well, thank you for reading and Happy Valentine’s Day!
