More Gorgeous Purple Freshwater Pearl Jewelry…

By Tara Andrews
March 29th, 2010

Another supply order arrived with some gorgeous freshwater pearls that are dyed a bright and beautiful purple. I immediately got to work hand knotting a necklace and earring set. They would make perfect accessories for bridesmaids or brides.

These pearls are 6.5mm and have a potato shape. They are not perfectly round but still gorgeous! I love the color. The fascinating thing about dyed freshwater pearls is that they each absorb the dye differently so there are slight variations in the color giving them much more character than a strand of exactly the same colored pearls.

See more pictures and a detailed description of this beautiful set of pearls in my Etsy listing.

Surprise, You Get a Free Wedding Reception!!

By Tara Andrews

Imagine deciding to get married by the Justice of the Peace in a quiet intimate wedding with just a couple of your closest family members and friends. Then you step outside to a surprise reception complete with a bridal party, cake, speeches, first dance, bouquet and guarder toss, and presents!

Well, that is what this New York couple found waiting for them after they said “I do” thanks to an Improv company. It’s hilarious and at the same time so heart warming that this fun couple got to have a bigger wedding than they planned.

What would you do if this happened to you? Would you go to the reception?

This has got to be one of my favorite surprise wedding ideas. Meegan and Jean-Louise invited over one hundred of their closest friends and family to an “engagement party” only to surprise them with a spontaneous wedding ceremony THAT DAY!

How fun would that be? I love this shot of the wedding party who just found out that they are actually going to be bridesmaids today, not just party guests.

And here, the guests are realizing that she is in a wedding dress, and she is being led down an aisle – she’s getting married today – right now!!

The happy couple following the ceremony.

Let the party begin!!
