Check out our Fall/Winter 2009 issue of Brides New Yorkto see all the gorgeous real weddings we've got inside.
One of my favorites is Alicia and Joel's wedding held at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City. Alicia is an artist, and it shows in all the stunning decor and details, like the unique coordinating necklaces the bridesmaids wore. I was surprised to discover that Alicia made the necklaces herself, using knotted hand dyed silk, faceted glass and acrylic stones, metal cabochons, and woven metal chain. Even better? You can get similar designs for your bridesmaids, since she has recently launched her own jewelry shop, Brooklyn Bridal Jewelry. Her bridal jewelry can be customized by color, silhouette, and materials. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
