I have been in love with this hairpiece for a long time:
I also am planning on doing something kinda similar wiht my hair – something low and slightly off to one side, with some waviness, maybe some braided detail, and very romantic.
This is my dress (before you think it looks awful on me, this sample is TEN sizes too small, the actual dress will have a more natural waist and look less poofy in my midsection… This picture give you some idea of the detail on the dress though – really the only embelishment is the bottom, otherwise no bling)
I have a cathedral-length, single-layer soft tulle veil (not the one in the above picture, the one in the picture is heavier/thicker than the one I bought), that I would wear pinned under the hairpiece for the ceremony, and then remove for the reception (if I wear the hairpiece)
I will also be wearing earrings similar to these (these are a mock-up), and plan on wearing no necklace. The earrings are pretty substntial in size.
Do you think the hairpiece is too much with my dress, the earrings, and the veil (which I’ll only wear for the ceremony)? It’s pretty pricey (like $400ish), so I don’t want to buy it unless I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear it… Can’t just order it to see it and send it back if I don’t like it, it isn’t returnable…

I like it all but if you could go smaller with the earings that would be even better in my opinion. It’s whatever you want though……everyone has their own taste.

@lilone35: the earrings aren’t HUGE, but they’re probably about 2″ long total. One of my best friends is a jeweler, and these are my wedding present from her, so I can have her tweak them however I want, even after she gives them to me 🙂 (best wedding present ever!)

@ferdie224: I think the hairpiece looks beautiful with your dress. Initially I thought it would look slightly overwhelming with the veil in the picture, but I see that you’re getting a single layer veil instead, which is a good fit for the large hairpiece.

I love the hairpiece as well! I think it has a romantic vintage vibe. The earrings are nice but I don’t think they go with the vibe of hairpiece – the earrings are too modern. I think either one would go with the dress – but not together. I agree that smaller earrings would be a better choice – look into some vintage inspirations for your jeweler friend if she’s comfortable with it.
