    I love your dress but personally I feel the flowers are a little on the large side. COuld you wear the headband without the flowers?

    leahloughran: That big wide headband does remind me of baby headbands. I like the idea but the execution, with the thick lace, brings me back to a time I cannot recall.

    leahloughran:  I’m not a huge fan of the headband but not because it’s “childish”. I think it’s silly when Brides belittle something because it’s “childish”. Ummm hello, we are all grown women wearing tulle/satin/organza/whatever dresses…if that doesn’t scream princess what does.

    leahloughran:  I have short hair too and I do think you are headed in an AWESOME direction. Keep looking and keep posting! Your dress is fabulous by the way. Really great.

    Your dres is so beautiful! I do like the headband and props on making it, but I might skip it–I looked at that first before I looked at your dress, so it was a bit distracting. What about a different headpiece, or a birdcage-type veil for the ceremony and then just a clip for the reception? Good luck!

    I don’t think the one you made looks childish. It’s definitely not my style, but I think it looks really nice with your dress and hair. It sort of reminds of something from the 20’s. I also like that it looks comfortable enough to wear for more than just the ceremony. I think if that’s the look you are going for (retro/20’s), the first etsy posting is better. Otherwise, I would go with #2.

    Not a fan 🙁 the lace band is wide like a pp mentioned & then combined with fliwers seems too much. I’d just make one of the flowers into a fascinator.
