Wedding Wire Reviews

I've started advertising on and have been promised that having lots of good reviews will help me claw my way to the top of the search results. If I have made something wonderful for you, would you please let them know by clicking the button to the right (scroll down to just under "About Me") and writing a quick review? Once you get there, they'll ask you what service I provided; the answer is "Other unique service."

Thank you so much! My cyberlife and I thank you!


Washington Bridal Showcase

My faithful assistant and husband, James, and I attended the Washington Bridal Showcase expo at the Patriot Center last weekend. We met a whole host of wonderful brides, parents, and other vendors. Here are some photos as proof of our presence, lest we need an alibi for that time and date.

Bat Mitzvah Quilt

Here are some photos of my most recent creation: a wall-hanging gift for a girl having her Bat Mitzvah. We managed to include all of her interests: friends, cell phones, softball, basketball, and wheaten terriers. And I had to add silver thread and some beads and sequins, because she is a 13-year-old girl, after all! We've all been there.

Miniature Huppa Display

I'm proud to virtually unveil my new miniature huppa display. It features a square canopy on wooden poles (frame provided by my talented wood-working father, David T. Bailey). This particular huppa has a cloud motif, with reverse-applique clouds that are nothing but a layer of tule that you can see right through. The sides of the huppa are embroidered with: "Rachel Green and Ross Geller," "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine," and the date. This is a sample, obviously, as Ross and Rachel never did get married, as far as I know.

Inside are the tiniest miniature bride and groom ever, standing in for Ross and Rachel. Pretend like they're bigger. Huppa frames are on average 7 feet tall; they don't usually dwarf people like this. Unless you start out with really small people.
