PLANNING FOR YOUR HEADPIECE ORDER
Planning a wedding can be very stressful, even if you have hired a planner. Ordering your hair accessories early is an essential part of your planning process. After all, your headpiece will more likely be one of the main focuses of your bridal trousseau, so why not prioritize this important decision.
Often a bride’s hair accessories are the last decision she will make, due to waiting for the arrival of her gown. This can often lead to disappointments if there is not enough time left for production in the peak Spring and Fall busy wedding seasons.
We encourage you to start the process of ordering your headpiece shortly after you have ordered your gown. You may send us images and color swatches of your gown so we can help consult on style, color or any questions you may have.
OUR PRODUCTION PROCESS
The production process of our headpieces is very complicated with many different skills and steps.
First, we fabricate and solder the metal from the raw brass ornaments.
They are then sent out to be plated in the desired finish, which can take up to 2 weeks.
When the piece is received back in our studio, we then add the finishing touches which could take several days.
Then the pieces must sit undisturbed for a few days so the enamels, paints and glues can cure. Not to mention the quality control, packing and invoicing time.
Orders must be produced in batches due to vendor minimums. So if there has been not enough time left for our production process, a one-off order must be prioritized in front of others order and a rush charge will be applied.
Your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life. The symbolism of a wedding is as old as love itself so make it beautiful, have fun and leave time to do so!
