    I love the two flowers for after the ceremony.  I’m not really sure if you should put a fascinator with the veil or not though.

    I think the two purple orchids look awesome! I’d wear just the birdcage (no flowers) for the ceremony, and then remove the veil and add the two purple orchids like you have them in the pictures for the reception.

    Did you use a hairpiece or something else underneath your hair to make the bun look bigger? Or is that all your real hair? I love that folded bun look.

    Awww…you look gorgeous! So pretty and classy. I’m voting for 2 purple orchids. Wasn’t positive about birdcage from side view, but it’s SO adorable from the front. Love the hair!

    I love the two purple flowers! I think it may be too much for the ceremony to have the birdcage and the flowers…can you put the flowers in after the ceremony and have the flowers just for the reception?

    So pretty! I would do the birdcage only for the ceremony and then put in the orchids for the reception.

    Hmm… you look so pretty that I feel like anything that detracts from you face is a downside. I would probably not go with anything. You with your hair do & makeup is a perfect combination in itself. Your photos would defintiely sustain the test of time through generations.

    That being said, if you really want something, maybe birdcage only for the ceremony and place a white orchid/gardenia in the back for the reception?

    That looks great! I love the orchids but don’t really think that you need them.. By the way, how did you get the orchids to stay in your hair?

    I LOVE the birdcage! You are so pretty- you look a bit like a young Audrey Hepburn or Audrey Tatou.

    I vote birdcage for ceremony (maybe with a small fascinator) and then two small orchids for the reception.
