Erica Elizabeth Designs I Wish I May Collections 2014

Erica Elizabeth 2014 1

The lovely Erica Elizabeth has wowed us last year with her Nature Inspired 2013 collection¬†and she’s back this year with a magical, fairy tale-worthy I Wish I May 2014 collection. I sooo love that there are a couple of tiaras (yes, princess crowns!) in her dreamy set this year, just enough to awaken the royalty in you. ūüôā Erica has stayed true in crafting the most stunning pieces, using only the finest materials, and sprinkling her very own pixie-dust in each piece… so that each and every of her lovely headpiece carries about a certain magical feel you just cannot ignore. As Erica shares what inspired her, “I was pulled toward the youthful crown and tiara fashions, worn for centuries as a sign of nobility and aristocratic grace. These special designs, marked by exquisite fabrics and unique textures, are crafted with my signature care to make each piece a lasting treasure.”

Ring Pillows and Ring Pillow Alternatives

Imagine this: You have just chosen the cute tot who will be carrying your rings on your wedding ceremony. To go with your rustic theme, you decide to dress him up in a cute little bow tie and suspenders, khaki pants and white shirt with rolled up sleeves, and perhaps have him wear a newsboy cap too. Oh! Will he be the cutest! The tacky, white satin covered ring pillow suddenly pops up in your mind. You think, ooooh, it’s going to be a little soo off from your theme if you let your ring bearer use this.

Don’t fret, detail-savvy bride. You’re not alone on this. You’ll go crazy-happy to know that unique ring pillow designs are now available, and there are tons of ring pillow alternatives – just in case, you don’t want an actual “pillow” – you could choose from. Scroll down and view my best picks. Enjoy! ūüôā
