Tutu Cute!

Our wedding was full of lots of beautiful moments and fun ones too, but the cutest part of the day was our flower girls' trip down the aisle. You see our little ladies were a tad skiddish about making their entrance, but once they saw Uncle Boo (my husband) at the end of the “runway” holding out Altoids, they were moving. 
Who knew Altoids were a treat for kids?
This scene alone was enough to draw “awwws” and “how cutes” from our guests, but the girls' tutu dresses were a scene stealer throughout the day. People adored the fluffy frocks and I got dozens of questions about them. The dresses were a big hit with the girls too. One of our nieces, Anna, said she looked like a “ballet princess" and a "cloud.”

So, where did these magical pieces come from? The dresses were a custom order designed by Shanna Hanner, owner of the Etsy shop Baby Eliza Boutique. While the dresses were made especially for our little ballerinas, Baby Eliza Boutique carries all sorts of tutus in different colors.

For my flower girls, Shanna matched a swatch of my dress to the tulle used for the girls’ tutus. Their sashes were made with recycled scraps of eco-friendly silk from my bridesmaids' dresses, designed by Elizabeth St. John Couture. The girls like matching the "big girls." Shanna also tied little tulle knots along the bottom of their dresses to match the detail on the bottom of mine.

In addition to the tutu dresses, Baby Eliza Boutique, also outfitted my bridesmaids and readers, providing the hairpieces they wore, as well as my bridal hairpiece and garter. The pieces were all made with sustainable materials and cruelty-free feathers and a portion of the proceeds benefitted the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).  The boutique still features a hairpiece (in the same design my reader Manda wore) that has 50% of the proceeds benefitting CFF.
