A lot of brides ask us where they can buy things like ribbon and other crafty business. One of the places we always recommend is M&J Trimming in NYC. M&J packs tons of fabulous sparkly bits and notions into their midtown location, and we thought it’d be lovely to take you on a little tour. Please note, we are not in any way affiliated with M&J and we were not compensated for this post. We just think it’s a great place to shop!
All of the above and so much more is only the front part of the store. As you get to the back wall, there’s something even more magical. Yup, more magical than an entire wall of ribbon in every color imaginable!
That’s right – there’s a bridal salon! For all of the not-so-crafty folks – you choose the components & the lovely staff at M&J will make things for you!
They also do custom jewelery and headpieces too! We got the lowdown from bridal consultant Whitney (a total doll, by the way), about custom pieces. Veils start at $100 for super simple styles with no bling. They take approximately 6-8 weeks. For custom belts, brides can choose a ribbon that coordinates with their dress color and have either trim or an applique added to it. Belts take approximately 3 weeks to make, and prices vary based upon your selections. Jewelery & headpieces take approximately 4-8 weeks.
Our photos really do these sparkly items no justice. We definitely recommend stopping by M&J to see them in person.

Will you be making any fascinators or belts? Will you be having a custom veil made? Is it wrong that I really want one of these gorgeous bridal belts to just wear around town?
