bouquet. I asked my co-worker what the
color scheme was for the event because I would want to do the flowers using those colors. She told me the brides maid gowns were iridescent fuchsia and burnt orange. Now to be honest, I couldn't actually picture those two colors together. It was a new combination for me but I kept an open mind. I purchased some fake flowers, the primary color being fuchsia and the secondary color being burn orange with some green leaves on them. Once I put them together to form the bouquet, it actually looked great! So now all that was left was the head piece. I had a little problem with this part because no matter what I did it just didn't look right. I tried a flower crown that goes around the head and I also tried one that fits on the head like a headband. I didn't like either. So I stepped back from the project for a couple of days until I could figure out how I was going to do this headpiece. Well, one day on the bus on my way from work the bus stops in front of this party store which has always been there. But for some reason this day I was looking at the store display through the bus window and what do I see? a doll about the same size as the one I'm making wearing a tiara. I didn't think I could find one in time if I had to order it so needless to say, I was pleased. I only had a week left to hand over the doll. I got off the bus and went into the store to purchase this cute little tiara. When I got it home it was a perfect fit. Now all I had to do is make the veil. The veil would be be short and plain so that was pretty easy. I finally completed her and was very pleased with the results. I brought her in to work to show my co-worker and she was floored. She loved it so much she had tears in her eyes and gave me the biggest hug. I was a little taken aback by the response. I wasn't expecting that. She showed everybody on her floor. The response was overwhelming. Well that's the story of my bride. I had fun making her and will definitely have to make another one. I have an idea for a dress that came to me while making this one, but that's another project. It may not be my next project but it will be in the near future. Here's the bride in full view.
