- Wedding: September 2012
I have my dress which is more Hollywood than bridal but I need help with the accessories. I’m starting with the hair – please vote for your favorite or let me know if you have other suggestions. With the back of the dress, the hair needs to be up, possibly messy chignon in the middle or side.
Option 1 – Headband: My FI has a thing for headbands but I’m having a hard time finding one that would look OK with hair up (and I don’t have bangs) and not too school-girlish. This one might work.
Option 2a- Feather clip: I don’t think girly flowers will look good but I like a feather clip to one side. I’m thinking of adding a birdcage blusher veil for the ceremony. I like feather pieces that stand out but don’t steal the show (ie, something huge sticking off the side of my head).
Option 2b- Feather clip with purple incorporated: FI is wearing charcoal 3pc suit with plaid tie that is black & white with a little bit of purple and a royal purple pocket square (looks great despite the fact that wedding colors are black/white/lemon yellow with a Palm Springs feel – I’m going to have to add some purple to the bouquet, I guess).
I’m up for any suggestions! It’s a mostly DIY wedding so hair will be done a few hours in advance so can’t be too fussy. Thanks for your help!
