Orange & Blossom Review


Are you a bride looking for a way to make your wedding unique? Or just love pretty things? Orange & Blossom is an amazing site packed full of pretty things that make lovely additions to not only weddings but everyday life as well. Orange & Blossom is the brainchild of Lisa Marie who has loved weddings her whole life and now has found a way to work with what she loves best!

They also have a great resources for brides to be with an online virtual consultation at a fraction of the cost. You can speak to a wedding coach on all aspects of your wedding from: working with a tight budget and how to make the most of it all the way as well as how to navigate through your big day! I think that this is such a great and innovative way in which to help plan a wedding and it's always reassuring to have a professionals input!

You may also find it interesting that Orange & Blossom has received a very prestigious award from Startupnation.com in their annual awards for the 100 best start up companies that are home based! Orange & Blossom recieved an award in the "Most Glamorous" category, and it is very much deserved! What is mind boggling is that Orange & Blossom was only started last June and it has already won such a prestigious award!

Here is a little bit more information straight from their site:
"Orange & Blossom is the first of its kind: a highly edited shop curated from artists and vendors to appeal to modern couples seeking something beautiful, different, real. We work with artists, designers, and vendors to bring you the very best in wedding embellishments, from handcrafted jewelry and accessories to exclusive thank you notes on recycled papers. Inside our boutique, browse new ceremony traditions from around the world, order custom moving cards, and learn more about our virtual wedding consulting services — another O&B innovation."

Orange & Blossom has so many great products to make your wedding unique! In their online shop they sell Paper Goods, Jewelry and Fashion, Wedding Decor, Favours, New Traditions and Gifts. You know how much I love my bling and I love the amazing jewelry offered by Orange & Blossom so much! Not only do they make great bridesmaid gifts or great focal pieces that help bring attention on your actual wedding but they translate so well to everyday wear! Lisa Marie was so generous in offering me an amazing piece to do a review on!

My package arrived quickly and I just loved the presentation! Lisa Marie put in so much effort and love into her packaging and it really showed! The piece that I reviewed came in a box with soft cotton to pad the necklace and came with the logo on the box. This box was neatly tied up in a very cute pink box. the whole package was wrapped very nicely in pink tissue paper and I had such a great time opening it up! The package also came with an adorable little pencil that had "It's going to be a beautiful day" engraved on it!

Isn't this packaging adorable?? Don't mind the shadow of my huge head! Eeek!


Me rocking the necklace....sadly this was the best shot! The other shots were shot badly and made me look like I had a triple chin! Which I don't dear readers!


I was lucky enough to be able to review the Balancing Pearls Necklace in Silver! This beautiful necklace is lovingly handcrafted in San Francisco and features a small tower of round freshwater pearls balanced in between delicate silver petals! The pendent dangles on a very fine chain that is 16 inches in length! This necklace is extremely delicate looking yet it has a great weight and strength to it! I really liked the fine details in the petals and each petal had such great detail in it which was really appreciated. It makes a big impact on everything that you wear and I love how well it goes with any outfit! I have received many compliments on it and I love to layer it with many other necklaces that I have and I love wearing it alone!
