Ok Hive the time has come for me to start really thinking about this. I change my mind a lot and find things I like often. But I’m not sure what I want. We’ll start wit what I know for sure.
First up my dress:
My latest hair inspiration (if not this some similar sidedo. the sidedo is definite):
now the hair dillema. i thought for the longest time id want something blingy, then i said no i want feathers and bling, but now i just dont know. i also decided i want a slim birdcage veil that is currently being made. so here is where i am so far in the hair dept.
originally i wanted this feather combo (before i found my veil):
then i discovered this smaller feather guy which im fond of:
but then i found this hair comb:
after that i found this blue guy which i think is so freakin cool. but its blue and nothing in my wedding is blue. everything is black and white. so it really has no place. but i cant help but stare at it but who knows if it will pass.
so since im torn. what do you guys think? what are your preferences/suggestions??

I think the feathers have way too much going on to go with your intricate, large earrings. I’d either go with the simple clear crytal comb, or nothing at all. The hair is intricate, the jewelry is intricate – putting another intricate piece right there next to everything makes it a little much! I’d get a beautiful crystal cuff bracelet instead if I had your dress.

I voted for the blue one. I think it’s gorgeous and really unique, and it can be your something blue! I don’t think it matters that nothing else in your wedding is blue, it’s expected for the bride to wear a something blue any way so I don’t think it will stick out in a bad way.

I would go with one of the crystal combs.

I really like what the model is wearing in her hair. I would say out of your options the blue comb.

@ChemistryBride: this exactly! it doesn’t matter if nothing else is blue in your wedding, you’re the bride! besides, with everything being black and white, this subtle little bit of color isn’t going to derail that at all. it’ll go quite nicely, i think.

I voted for the clear crystal comb. You’ll already have a lot of texture with your side-do, earrings, veil, and gown, so I think a smaller, elegant piece like this that complements the rest of your ensemble, rather than standing out from it, is probably best.

Crystal comb for sure. I think that is timeless.

I think if you go with a sidedo and a veil and a hair accessory and big dangly earrings, you will have far too much competing for attention on your head.
Your dress is stunning with lots of interesting detail on its own. Don’t detract from it by over-doing your other accessories.

thanks for the opinions everyone. your all almost reassuring my idea of nixing the feathers. I thought thats what I wanted but that was when I was intending to not have a veil.
@Zanne54: my veil will maybe be 2-2.5 inches wide across my face. I should measure my earrings but they look a lot larger. But I agree I do not want to overdo it one bit.
