Last November, blue bijou had the privilege of being featured on the BrideAccess.com TV show!  We were interviewed by the lovely Heather Beers and featured four gorgeous looks for brides.

The director and co-owner of BrideAccess.com, Ryan Winterton, purchased the delicate Paige necklace for his wife for Christmas and had this to say about his experience with blue bijou:

Blue Bijou was a HUGE hit with my wife.  I told you how she isn’t a very bling-bling type of girl, but she absolutely loved the Swarovski necklace and earrings.  Thank you very much!  And we will be enjoying the vacation that came as a bonue too.  Blue Bijou ROCKS (literally and figuratively)!

Nobody wants to show up to the ball wearing the same thing as someone else, right?  Your wedding day done your way is perfect with customized jewelry, just for you.  Take Quincy for example.

Quincy’s wedding colors were champagne and chocolate brown.  She decided to incorporate her colors into her jewelry to match her ivory gown and chocolate brown bridemaid dresses.

In honor of this celebration of love, blue bijou is discounting everything by 40%! (note the discount is taken off at the check-out) Check out our Valentines Day ideas here!

This summer, my rock star friend, Kim Urhahn, was married to her love, Greg in Vancouver.  She and I used to work together at Tom Lee Music and have kept in touch over the years.  To keep with the lovely blue theme, she ordered a pair of the stunning Laura earrings and matching necklace for her beautiful ensemble.  Kim is an avid drummer and used to play for Lillix, a band signed to Madonna’s label, Maverick, and now rocks the drums & mic in the band Sugarblade.

This is the lovely Quincy Lister. She contacted us earlier this year about customizing champagne and chocolate brown bridal jewelry for her upcoming wedding in April. We found beautiful champagne colored freshwater pearls and chocolate colored Swarovski crystals (for a closer look at her bijou, click here!). Here are some photos from Quincy’s wedding care of the marvelous Melissa Kelsey Photography. Thanks for letting us show off your photos, Melissa! To see more of Melissa’s incredible photography, visit her online at www.melissakelseyphotography.com. She’s got a great style and fabulous personality which makes her great to work with.

Isn’t Quincy radiant? She and her hunky husband are such a darling couple. It was an honor to be part of their wedding day.

While not a big TV watcher myself, I have no power over What Not to Wear – whenever it’s on I just can’t help myself! Tonight I caught an episode where they completely made-over a bride and groom who were at the brink of saying, “I Do” to give them a chance to do it right! I would die to be Stacy’s friend! What a woman!

On the What Not to Wear site, there are great wedding resources for brides to be, including Six Rules for Wedding Shopping.

Rule #2: Accessories
If you are wearing a dress to the floor with lots of volume, go with larger accessories to keep things in proportion.

Check out the blue bijou bridal collection to find the perfect piece for your wedding ensemble!

At the Bridal Extravaganza, we were lucky to be neighbors with local photography company, Images by JaNae. JaNae has a great eye for photography and snapped a few shots of our booth from the show!

Here are some of my favorite shots from JaNae’s blog:
