Okay, so I took the plunge and bought the headpiece i’ve been drooling over on Etsy for weeks. It arrived today and though it is definitely gorgeous, it’s also a lot bigger than I was expecting.
So I would love some opinions on whether it looks pretty or if it’s too much.
Here is the dress I’m wearing (on another bride):
And here is me and my horror movie face in the headpiece.
Some details on the headpiece:
Also, my hair will obviously be better styled and not so flat.

I don’t know why but I love that headband with that dress I just see it coming out so beautiful

The details of it are really pretty, the size is just too big, imo, it takes over your head a bit

Also it seem like it may help the dress to pop even more

I think it’s kinda big too. It’s gorgeous though!

i love it. it will look gorgeous with that dress; very 1920’s.
i would definitely keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum, especially earrings and necklace. they would compete with each other.

It’s a beautiful piece and I think it’s perfect. It would look fabulous with your dress.

@mypinkshoes: Yes, totally agree on the rest of the accessories! I won’t be wearing a necklace and my earrings are the ones in the picture. (I won’t be wearing the studs in my second and third hole, just the dangles). I think they’re delicate enough…

@RexManningDay: i think its beautiful all that matters is that your happy with the way it looks.
you can always buy another one that’s what i did i bought one and then found myself drooling over one on esty and bought it for 80.00 the original one i bought was 26.00 and i sold it back on eBay to another bride ; ) but every time i pull my esty head band out i drool all over again i cant wait to wear it and i found earrings and a bracelet to match it all looks like a set and i drool everytime i look at it and i dont care who likes it lol be drooling happy with your choice!

i think it would look good if you do your hair with plenty of volume…if you’re planning on pulling it tightly back, you might want something more subdued.

Do it! I think it’s awesome. Your dress is simple (in a good, pretty, clean way) enough that it’s not overpowering.

It’s very 1920’s, I agree. I think it’s fine. It looks big-ish, but honestly, you can’t get away with wearing a big head peice without it looking big. Ha!
I do think you might wanna huck the danglies and go for studs, maybe just a larger size. But of course, that’s totally my opinion. I feel like there will definitely be too much bling though, if you wear a necklace or something.
I’d recommend dainty and delicate jewerly regardless, with that headpiece and that dress. Like slender silver chains and tiny tiny tiny diamonds, etc.
I also think red lipstick would be awesome!
And your hair should definitely be poofier. 🙂
