I have something completely and utterly gorgeous to show you today! I hope your ready for a lot of wedding pretty as I have some amazing items to share with you today. You may know Debbie Carlisle Bouquets as mainly a vintage inspired bouquet designer, bouquets may I say of outstanding quality and and design! But Debbie has just launched her first accessories range and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to share it with you as it’s completely stunning!
Debbie is a good friend of mine, we both set up in business pretty much at the same time, so it has been amazing to see how her work has moved on and grown over the last 2 years. I am so proud of what Debbie has achieved, and her her work certainly does stand out from the crowd as it’s unique and always made toe the highest quality.
With this accessories collection Debbie has really stepped up the next level, and I can’t tell you how much I love each piece she has created! And what’s more Debbie got to launch her new collection at the Designer Wedding Show a couple of weekends ago!
The collection of headpieces and cuffs which take inspiration from the 1920s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s – with a modern fashion-forward twist. The bands can be worn as headbands or
forehead bands, allowing brides to mix up their look – and wear their headpiece long after their wedding day. Sparkling combs, off-centre beaded headbands and fabulous feather headpieces complete the collection Debbie said: “I wanted to make this collection as versatile as possible so brides could wear their chosen design in many different ways. I wanted to give them maximum choice about their on-the-day look – or looks – and also give them the option of wearing their bridal headpiece over and over, long after their wedding day has gone!”
Daisy – headpiece £60, cuff £20.
Daisy is a simple, fresh embroidered floral ivory headpiece which can be worn as a simple single-strand headband or a forehead band. Delicate metallic embroidery completes the look with a warm glow that would work well with silver or champagne tones. Buy two headpieces and wear together for extra glamour – this style twinned with an ‘up-do’ and an empire line gown creates a beautiful regency look. Daisy sits on an ivory organza ribbon and has a matching Daisy cuff – wear two for added impact.
Natalia – £145
Natalia is a stunning diamante headpiece which sits fluidly against the head in a design reminiscent of delicate lace. The soft curves created by the sparkling diamante combine to create a romantic yet striking look. Natalia comes on a comb so it can be placed in different positions – but can also be placed on a headband by request which will be wrapped with satin ribbon in the colour of your choice.
Mae – headpiece £150, cuff (not shown) £45
This delicate creation can be worn as a forehead band, headband, or wrapped around a ballerina bun.

Matching Mae cuff available.
Florence – £160
This show-stopping diamante headpiece is designed to be worn both as a fashion-forward forehead chain and a more traditional headband.

Rosa is a delicate floral design created from silver tone glass and ivory beads and designed to sit on a comb so it can be worn with a variety of hair styles. It can also be placed on a headband on request which will be wrapped with satin ribbon in the colour of your choice – choose bridal ivory or go for a colour
that tones with your hair to help the band ‘disappear’.
Small Ava – £85
This delicate ivory feather headpiece sits on a clip which allows you to position it anywhere you like on your head. Each headpiece features a vintage brooch or dress clip – sourced to complement your gown, embellishment or other jewellery.
