Ribbons, Sashes, and Bows: Ribboned Headpieces

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2004

A flower girl looks like a Degas ballerina in a buttercup taffeta dress with tulle overskirt by Fenaroli for Regalia. We wrapped a picot-edge velvet ribbon around a 1920s pearl-trimmed lace cloche from Ellen Christine Millinery.

Beautiful and versatile, bows can adorn a headpiece or a dress with equal finesse. The simple flat, tailored bow and clean lines of this ivory silk-wool dress by Shannon McLean Bridal recall the classic sixties style of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. A short, chenille-dot tulle veil attached to an off-center satin bow from Suzanne Couture Millinery adds a flirtatious air.
