Wedding Bridal Jewellery: Lulu Splendor
It can be a bit of a tough task to find jewellery for your wedding. The prices can range anywhere from really cheap to really not cheap (if you know what I mean). Sometimes it’s hard to even figure out where to start.
I had fallen in love with Etsy long before we got engaged and often found myself on there looking for everything from dog sweaters to hand crocheted hats. I’m not going to lie, I have wasted hours and hours looking on it! The wonderful thing about Etsy is it is a storefront for hand made things which means you get to support an artist and deal with them one on one. It’s just awesome. And because of the nature of Etsy, you quite often can get custom made items very quickly and easily.
For my wedding, I came across an amazing seller located in Australia named LuLu Splendor. She hand-makes beautiful jewellery using Swarovski crystal and I fell in love with it instantly. The prices for her pieces are very reasonable and I was thrilled with my purchases. They came quickly (for coming from Australia!) and were in really cute tin boxes. I bought a necklace, earrings, headband for me and a hair clip for my maid of honour.
I eventually ended up getting a friend to convert the headband into a hair comb before the wedding, but that was completely my fault. This could have been done by the seller, but I didn’t realize until after I had received the headband that me + headbands = massive headache (100% bride fail there). This was not something I really wanted on my wedding day. Also, I ended up not wearing the necklace at the wedding as my wedding party advised me that it was a bit too much.
The great thing about the pieces I bought is I have been able to wear each of them again at some point. They are so beautiful that they are just such a great way to dress up an outfit. I get compliments on them all the time! Mind you, I don’t wear them all together anymore.
The fun thing is that even though she is all the way from Australia, I have seen many brides in Ottawa wearing her pieces!

Also…Happy St. Patty’s Day! Don’t forget to wear your green – I am currently sporting a green shirt, green sweater topped off with a green blazer and of course, green shoes!
Have a wonderfully green and Irish day!
