The Jeweled Bouquet trunk show is happening today and Thursday at Kleinfeld Bridal. So we caught up with Jeweled Bouquet designer Danielle Aspinwall to get all the details. Danielle wants brides to have something that will last, and something they can pass down. Being able to add that personal touch on a brides wedding day is really important to her.
Q: What inspired your new collection?
A. I get inspired by textures, colors, time periods, and by the fine details on wedding dresses.
Q: Why did you decide to launch a bridal collection?
A. A jewelry bouquet is a great way to add personal touches to your wedding. I wanted brides to have something that would last, that they could pass down, something unique and special that they could look at every day.
Q: Do you have a favorite bridal piece?
A. Yes, I love them ALL!! But my all-time favorite is one I created with a designer in mind that I used for a staged wedding. I call her Cecilia. This bouquet screams wow, and has so many intriguing details that you can stare at it forever.
Q: How did you begin working with Kleinfeld? What makes Kleinfeld different from the other boutiques you are in?
A. My husband gave me a little nudge to leave some information at Kleinfeld Bridal when we were in the city one day. Kleinfeld Bridal is the whole package. They focus on the little touches, bend over backwards to make sure everything is perfect and offer you to walk into a world you’d only imagine in a fairytale.
Q: What are your most popular bridal pieces?
A. My Audrey bouquet, it’s a classic, timeless, elegant piece that makes a gorgeous bridal statement. It features tons of Swarovski crystals, set on white flowers, with some of my hand made white brooches, AB crystals and tapers into a medium cascade. Finished off with a silver handle called a Tussie Mussie.
Q: What do you think are the next big accessories trends for brides?
A. It seems like the bridal market has shifted towards a 50’s feel with short dresses, cascading bouquets, and tons of greenery. So I think we will see more hat type veils, wristlet gloves and of course my favorite Jeweled Cascading Bouquets.
Q: How can a bride use accessories to transform her wedding look?
A. Accessories are so important. They allow you to dress up a simpler gown. You can take that dress and make it a showstopper by adding in the right jewelry, a bold statement necklace, and a jeweled bouquet filled with crystals!
