I am not kidding, I have changed my mind a dozen times!
I started with a gorgeous feather/flower fascinator..I think that it’s too big (7inches)and its almost gaudy looking. I have no feathers anywhere else, so I really dont think it matches.
Then I spend time searching online for tiara combs..not the full tiara (NO THANKS!) but just the smaller comb type that sits top center. Now I think that would look kinda dumb up there all alone. Id feel like a babydoll. Big ol’ head..little tiny “tiara”
Then I got some hairpins, figuring I would just add them to my updo, but they are VERY heavy and I am not trying to worry about holding them in all night. (I have baby fine locks)
Now Im think about something more on the elegant, yet subtle side and I am at a loss. Maybe a rhinestone comb/clip placed in the side, but I am also loving the very delicate looking vines. I could get a shorter one..maybe 6 inches or so, and weave that thru my updo?
I just dont want to come off being not appropriate or not looking my age. (Not that I look 41, cuz I dont, but everyone knows how old I am and that I am duplicate bride) Any older bees (or younger for that matter) do something very delicate and subtle? FYI – I am wearing my hair up..lots of soft curls, and a strapless dress with chadelier earrings, no necklace. Top half of gown is very detailed with lace/beads/sequins, and the skirt if vertical layers of organza and tulle. I was planning on wearing my short veil ( I think its about 20 inches or so) at the base of my upso, but now I am rethinking that. Would that be too much for a 41 yr old bride?
Any suggestions would be helpful..and pics are welcome!!
