i’ve been going around and around in circles trying to figure out what to put in my hair for my wedding. my dress is super simple (the jcrew sophia), so i want to really do it up with my hair. so far, i’ve seen several options (thank goodness for etsy!).
1) feather fascinator – http://loboheme.etsy.com or http://portobello.etsy.com
2) silk flower w/ brooch – http://brasspaperclip.etsy.com
3) kanzashi – http://atelierkanawa.etsy.com
4) handmade organic-looking flowers – http://mgmart.etsy.com
i’ve seriously considered each and every one of those options. i’m leaning away from the feathers out of concern it’d look ‘western’. i want something more homemade than the silk flower. the kanzashi are BEAUTIFUL (i LOVE what this bride did with them: http://theflirtyguide.com/pages_ideas/idea_gown_kimono_ribbon_flowers.html), but won’t fit with the rustic farm feel of the wedding. right now, i’m leaning towards the last.. so beautiful, and diy friendly!
are you doing a fun piece of art in your hair? what are your plans? i’d love more ideas!

My dress has a lot of sparkle, so I am not doing a huge hairpiece, but I did find this barrette I love from http://www.jenarichards.com

I totally agree on the feather thing. I’m not a big fan either.
I purchased my lovely modern veil at 5eizen on etsy. She also has some more modern designs. Check her out.

JessicaHayes – i had forgotten about 5eizen (probably because i can’t figure out how to say it, hah). she has some beautiful, modern, clean things. so fantastic.

leaver – I totally hear you! There are so many gorgrous options out there. Especially when you want to make a statement with your hair accessory. I think that if you want to continue with a rustic feel then I would also go with the last one. I think that the flower would give a subtle but noticeable dash of color to your hair.
kitty25kat25 – I love love love the barette it super cute. You can never go wroung with a little Bling!

Is there a possiblity that you might use more than one option so that you don’t have to choose? I think Mrs. Avocado changed her headpiece during her wedding day.

I am doing two different hair pieces. One is a sparkly headband with crystals for the ceremony, and the other is a black headband (there are two from Urban Outfitters that I like and I can’t decide which one to choose just yet: http://images.urbanoutfitters.com/is/image/UrbanOutfitters/15875743_01_b?$prodmain$ or http://images.urbanoutfitters.com/is/image/UrbanOutfitters/15633464_01_b?$detailmain$). Switching from the the formal look to the fun look for the reception. So excited.
