- Wedding: January 2017
Last night I started searching Google for images of bridal hair accessories, since I don’t like the symbolism of a veil, and don’t want a tiara because I wore one for my first wedding back in my 20’s (and I feel they’re mostly better on younger brides).
I saw some photos of feathered hair accessories, and thought that would be nice, since I’ve been a bird lover all my life and am currently a bird rescue volunteer.
Then I recalled that one of the other volunteers makes cruelty-free feather jewelry from naturally-molted parrot feathers donated by the rescue’s fosterers, and some of her proceeds are donated back to the rescue.
I emailed her late last night to see if she’s still in business and could make a custom-designed hair accessory for me, and we’re planning it out now! I’m SO excited to have something so perfect and meaningful for my wedding day!
Please share your experiences of finding or thinking of that perfect, meaningful item for your wedding.
