I had a headband..loved it, but it HURT!!  Wearing it for a good 5-6 hours almost killed me.  I switched the position a bit after a couple of hours. I’m sure you could make a fascinator stay.  So if you find one you really like, I think it’d be better.

I was thinking about going with a headband for the ease of keeping it in place, until I remembered that that ease comes from the fact that headbands DIG into my head like none other.  I agree that there HAS to be a way to get a fascinator to stay in place solidly… though I am intrigued by the ribbon headband idea… though also concerned about how that would stay in place.  Ribbons tend to slip around in my hair a lot.

So, I’ll probably be going with a fascinator.  🙂

I bought a headband that I am DEFINITELY wearing for ceremony, but still toying around with the idea of getting a fascinator to wear for the reception…best of both worlds!

I am planning to wear a fascinator as well, I can’t stand the pain and pressure from a headband. Even trying on a few of the bridal headbands I found that they were extremely heavy.

For the fascinator how are you planning to wear your hair? A little backcombing (if it fits the style) and some blend-in bobby pins should do the trick. Seems to work for me and I have extremely thick hair making it difficult for any fancy accessories to stay put.
