For me, the accessories really made this dress come together. I made an orange blossom hair piece from a kit I ordered and attached a mid-19th century embroidered bonnet veil that I bought off ebay. I had to soak the veil in Biz a number of times to bring it's beauty back.

Oh yeah, and I also made our wedding cake from an 1840s recipe the day before the wedding! (Not for the faint of heart).
|Everyone raved about the cake. Some people had a third piece!|
We rented out a Gothic Revival bed & breakfast for the weekend for the wedding and reception that was built in 1854, which the town of Ferndale was named after.

And to top it all off, my engagement/wedding ring is from the 1840s. We might be a little obsessed with this decade...
