Something Old, Something New:
Bringing Tradition Into Your Bridal Look

Whether you’re of Eastern European, African, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, or Irish heritage, or a combination of many backgrounds, if you’re looking to incorporate tradition into your wedding look, brides today have more options than ever before.

     Look at old magazines from your grandparent’s era for beading and accessory ideas. Add Art Deco beading to your tiara or the front of your dress, and match it with an antique beaded handbag from a flea market ...
