Vintage Wedding Look: Using Doilies

If you're like me, the sound of doilies makes you picture your grandmother's house.  Doilies places so delicately underneath a lamp to enhance the look of the living room or to cleverly collect dust. Whatever purpose it served, the memories of doilies are not that of a modern day girl. Apparently, after extensive research on DIY doily projects, I have to admit that doilies have come a very long way. Today, I have chosen DIY doily projects to give character to an Affordable Vintage Wedding Look.  I am amazed at the possibilities.  

From your Bridal Ensemble

Now here is a bride thinking outside the dress. Talk about being unique and putting the word modern into what was seen as old fashion. I love how she combined the pink and green into her wedding ensemble, makes her dress stand out even more. This DIY Doily Wedding Dress is sure to make a lasting impression. Check out the link to see more photos, of her intimate wedding. Also, loving the Doily Necklace.  It's one of those creations that you wonder if it looks good, then you see someone else wearing it and you say to yourself..."I think I can pull that off".
