Now, that I’ve got the dress done (for those who aren’t in the social-loop, yes I finally found a day that I wasn’t randomly called in to work to purchase a wedding gown), I’m looking at other wedding-related accessories – that’s right, it’s time to get snap happy with shiny bling and all sorts of head-gear. And I mean the sparkly sort of head-gear, not the orthodontic sort. Although, on my head, it might as well convert to orthodontics, as I expect I’m going to look like a bit of a fish-out-of-water. I don’t do glamour very well. Well, okay, at all – I’m more of a holey-jeans and dishevelled t-shirt kind of girl. I think the French call it déshabille? I call it: “Ick.”
So all the peeps in the know about the topic say that you should “consider your wedding gown and what type of wedding you are having. Are you having a very casual wedding, or a very formal one? You also need to consider the length of your hair and what kind of hairstyle you will want to wear. If you have longer hair, will it be up or down?”
Okay so – a) a traditional wedding, complete with pouffy white dress, lots of lace, church and plenty of relatives, b) hair in a low casual bun-thing, preferably to one side. Hopefully, by next year, I’ll have hair that doesn’t look like something a cat threw up on your welcome mat. These two factors have…told me nothing much. Tradition dictates that I must don a veil – everything else tells me nada about what length I should be choosing or if I require another headpiece underneath, or if I should just give up now and wear a silky chicken on my head instead.
What I do know is that I will not be turning my head into the second bouquet – everyone loves fresh flowers, but no one wants bees circling their scalp in a hideous tango/ laden with pollen. Eek. I’m thinking something posh, simple, yet still stunning – and not a typical upright tiara. I mean, princesses are cool, and all that, but I prefer them in my Disney movies, not playing out in real life.
So choices? Comb? Hipster tiara? Headband? Pin?

Oh, this is so adorable! I’m usually not a fan of feathers at all, but this little rhinestone pin with a small flare of feathers has caught my eye.
