- Wedding: May 2014
I’m not entirely sure how to do my hair or what to wear around my waist.
Some info: My wedding doesn’t have a particular theme or look, but it’s in a 1920s mansion. Our centerpieces are antique books with mercury-glass vases filled with peonies and anemones. I guess everything is very soft, intimate, antique-y, and romantic, lots of candles, books, rose and gold tones, etc. But everything is very relaxed, and we have 70-some guests.
I’m not sure what to do with my hair or the sash. I know I won’t wear a necklace (I have a small tattoo on my collarbone that I want to show, and besides, I think necklace + sash + hair accessory will be too much). Here is my dress, for reference. It is ivory satin on top and blush tulle on the bottom. I don’t love the oversized waistband flowers that the dress comes with, but they are an option.
So vote away, ladies, or recommend something else in the comments.
The flowers on the above photo, attached to ivory velvet sash that comes with dress.
Rose-gold swirly belt.
Feathery belt that is a bit over budget.
Silver art deco belt.
And now for hair accessories. I’m torn between something headband-y and sparkly, or something soft and flowery.
Ivory flower with tulle netting.
Duo of ivory silk flowers.
Duo of blush silk flowers, same as above.
Understated silver feather clip.
Headband of vines and flowers (a little more boho).
Or, something else altogether? Your advice is much appreciated!
