Last night I went and picked up my dress (SO SO EXCITING!). While I had it on, gushing over how well it fit and how much more beautiful it was than I remembered, we put my veil on and then the sales woman came over and put this drop-dead gorgeous sparkly… thing…. on my head.
I don’t know what it was called, but I do know that it was $350 and I could just never justify spending that much money on a sparkly … thing…. that I would wear exactly once in my life. So I told her it was unfortunately out of budget for me but I walked out of there thinking, I will totally find something similar for less.
Problem is, I don’t know ANYTHING about headpieces or what to look for. This particular thing wasn’t really a headband OR a comb. It was longish and kinda thin, and the way we had it situation was sort of on the crown of my head, right by where the top of my veil was. She just kind of set it on top there and I’m not sure how it would have attached to my head. She did mention that it was bendable.
Anybody have any idea what the heck this thing was?

@loveinthelibrary: can you try googling bridal headpieces and post some pics of something similar? did it have a veil or was it just like a fascinator or headband?

@mypinkshoes: It wasn’t attached to a veil. It wasn’t attached to my head, even! It was just this… thing, lol.
@mchitt329: Those are so beautiful! The one I had on though wasn’t a headband. It didn’t go all the way around my head or actually attach to my head in any way. Maybe they attach it to a comb or a headband later? I do like those headbands though! That might be a thought.
@weddingbound: Thank you, I will definitley check that out!

Your description of the “thing” sounds like magic! 😀
How about a hair comb? Maybe it just wasn’t attached to a come (like, if you wanted to attach it to your veil or wear it as-is, they don’t attach it to a comb in the store?)
I got my hair comb here:
Which also has TIARAS (maybe that’s what you’re lookign for?)
