My hair style would be something like this:
Though I will probably try to make the bun part a little smaller. In place of the yellow flower comb, I would like a turquoise fascinator. So it would be toward the back corner of my head rather than on the side. I am deciding between these 3:
#1 Satin and Feather
#2 Sinamay fascinator
#3 Peacock feather, blue and white
I like them all! The one concern I have about #3 is that, if I put it in the back corner of my head, it won’t be visible from the front, and I kinda want a little to be visible from the front. Otherwise, it looks more bridal to me. But then again, I like the more whimsical looks of #1 and #2. #1 could be customized to be whatever mix of colors I want, so if I chose it, I might make some of the feathers white. I don’t know, they’re all pretty. What do you think?

To clarify – is this to wear on your wedding day?

Honestly, I like the peacock feather the best. My second favorite is the satin and feathers.

I’m not so sure about 1 or 2 because for these I think the wearer may need a shorter haircut? But I could be wrong. I do like 3 though.

@CatyLady: Yes, this is for the wedding day.

For me I’d say 3, as here in the UK 1 and 2 are what you’d wear to a wedding if you were a guest.

Hmm, I’m a little torn. I agree the peacock one is too small. I’d like to see it from the front as well BUT, I’m trying to picutre how the other two would actually lay against your hair. You said the bun would be smaller…I’m guessing that would make it a little lower too….?? If that’s the case, I’d pick the first one. Satin and feathers. It looks more wedding like than the second one. Are these your final options? Or are you open to keep looking?

@Crazyhair: Yes, since the bun would be smaller, it would be a little lower, too. This is on blow dried hair, and the wedding day bun is likely to be done on straightened hair, so the hair will be overall less voluminous. I’m open to keep looking, but I’ve looked at so many and was hoping I’d narrowed it down a bit!
@DiscoBows Yes, I think the British are more likely to wear fascinators in general. I’d be surprised if any of our guests were wearing them, but I can see what you’re saying. I do agree that #3 looks more traditionally bridal.
Thanks for the opinions!

I love #1, and if you can add other colors, such as white, you might like it even more. #3 is pretty, but I agree, not big enough.
