It’s pretty but surely you can find something similar on etsy or something for a whole lot less. I couldn’t justify that much for a headband.

if you are struggling to justify the cost, it doesn’t sound worth it to me.

I think Jennifer Behr’s hair pieces would be the ones to splurge on, if you were going to. This halo is pretty, but nothing “wow!” I did wear a pair of Emmy London shoes at my wedding and they were gorgeous.

 Meh… not worth it in my opinion I don’t see why in the world it would cost this much other than brand name which is silly for a headband.

 

Try etsy they probably have 40 pages worth of similar headbands

 Looks like you have some time before your wedding, sit on it some more.  See if you can find anything.  If months from now you STILL reeeeeeeeeaallly want it and just have to have it, then go for it if it’s affordable.

bellsprout :  I think that is crazy money for a headband – but if you have the money and you love it then do whatever makes you happy.

I get it- It’s a lovely headband, but I’m sure you can find something similar elsewhere.

I do totally understand though- I went way over budget on earrings, but I was way under budget on my dress.  Also, earrings are something that you will actually wear again.  (they are pretty simple/don’t scream bridal).  I just don’t think you can justify that much on a headband that you honestly won’t wear again.

Wow, you could buy all your accessories with that kind of money! I’ve also had to fight with myself to splurge a little for anything wedding related, but some things are just not worth the outrageous price tags. The headband is pretty, but you could find something equally as nice on Etsy or Amazon for 1/10 of the cost.

bellsprout :  That seems like a good plan  -don’t get it yet but stash some cash and if you still LOVE LOVE LOVE it nearer the time get it!
