@LastGirlStanding: That’s exactly what I was thinking, that the hat would nestle into my hair. The brown one is actually a teardrop one worn sideways, so I could do the same look with any of the teardrop ones that have been posted. Is the make-up in my e-pics what you are talking about with the eye makeup?
@PoppyH: I have a lot of respect for the Amish. I’ve always thought the kind of see-through bonnets that some of the women wear are pretty.

@MrsWBS: That is a possibility. I do need to get the illusion top taken in a bit as it is too big right now.

@Eckle: I can’t really tell from your epics what your makeup was like. But the eye shadow shown in the second etsy link I put is what I’m thinking; Dramatic liner and lashes, but pretty neutral on the lid.
You have a natural eyebrow (ie – you don’t over tweeze, which is good), so I would aim for a lighter shadow on your lid to open up the space between your eyeliner and your eyebrow. From the epics you posted you’re drawn to shots where you’re not looking at the camera/your eyes are closed. A brighter shadow will keep your closed/downcast eyes from looking dark/like you’re tired. When they are open, you want to avoid darker eyeshadow that might make your eyes look hooded/shaded. A light neutral eyeshadow with a highlight on your browbone will help your eyes pop while the liner/lashes will give you drama.
*disclaimer – I’m NOT a makeup pro but I also prefer a fuller brow and I’ve found that these tips help me stay “bright eyed” in photos*
Best of luck!

@LastGirlStanding: I actually don’t do anything to my eyebrows at all, that’s what genetics gave me. I just started learning about make-up about a month ago, so I’ll take whatever advice anyone wants to give me.
Here’s a better pic of my make-up. It’s a light neutral on the browbone, a darker one on the lid with a purple on the outer edge/crease and a dark purple on the lash line. No eyeliner, mascara, or lip gloss.

Alright, looking again, the mother of pearl buttons totally work, and i would use the pink seed opals as the accents. It will be gorgeous. You will not look Amish or yarmulke-y– you will be a beautiful vintage bride!
As for the yarmulke comments, has anyone ever seen an old-school Juliet-cap? they hug the back of the head muuuuch more than OP’s options.
MOTHER OF PEARL AND PINK OPALS. and then I want to see pics of progress.
