They’re stunning and if you’re having a hard time justifying spending that amount I’m sure you can find it less expensive. Are you crafty? Could you duplicate this?

I bought my headpiece on etsy. It was really hard to find something in my price range that I loved, but I believe I got an earring and headband set for like $40? (Could be off on that number though)

These are beautiful.  However, they are basically just glued to a satin covered headband.  Probably pretty easy to do.  The hard part would be finding the appliques

You probably need some interfacing or something to give it shape, some crystals/beads/pearls….

If you like the look of the lace cut outs then why not try making it and what’s the worst that can happen in you don’t like the outcome? and if you love it think what everyones reaction will be when you say “I made it myself”. Good luck

I’m finding the whole bridal business is a HUGE mark up. They know you need it and know brides will pay it. I mean a hand tied bridal bouquet can range $90-$150 and all they do is take some flowers one by one and wrap with ribbon. Maybe I’ll go to the grocery store and buy a bouquet come home and wrap some ribbon around it and viola… a bridal bouquet. Just kidding, I’m a sucker and will pay my florist to do it.

Love, these are so pretty! The price tag? Not so much!

This looks like an excuse for a trip to Michael’s πŸ˜‰
