1. If I spent a couple of hundred dollars on crystals, I would want to use them. Do you have a bead store in the city in which you live? I would speak to the owner and ask for a referral to a crafter who could make you a headpiece using your crystals.

2. If money is an issue, unless you already own extensions, I would style your own hair in it’s own length.

A stylist could pin up the back to get a Gatsby look

If I were in your shoes, I wouldn’t worry about using the supplies I’d purchased, and I would head out and start looking at hair accessories. You can always use your supplies for a different (less stressful!) project when you have more time; for now, you want to make sure that you look great for your wedding day. It’s not worth stressing about using your supplies to “save money” and end up having to wear something you don’t love, or end up spending more on the project to try to save it. You’ll use it for something later on, and not waste money that way! Have you thought about looking at costume jewelry that can be worn as a head wrap? Maybe even a crazy blingy necklace could be bobby pinned to your hair by your stylist to give you a jeweled hair wrap look. Places like Nordstrom Rack, The Icing, JCPenney, Kohl’s, even Forever 21 have affordable costume jewelry; I think there may be a statement necklace somewhere that could double as a hair accessory. Think about layering a couple, or adding a brooch or a hair comb to get the look you want.

this dress would look awesome with a birdcage and a haircomb and call it aday… You sound like you DIY like I do, weddings are not the time to teach yourself how to DIY, way too stressful…

@multinational:  Do an etsy search on ‘rhinestone applique’

This will help you find two things – 1.) a rhinestone piece to use in your hair (if you want it.

And 2.) a rhinestone piece you can secure to a ribbon (usualy they are iron on) for your ‘blingy belt’.

Good Luck!
