Headpiece found!

Sorry for the lack of posts all!  I figure if i don’t have anything to say I shouldn’t post, right?

Those of you who have followed me for a while have seen my back-and-forth waffling over what to do with my hair.  I turned down the idea of a traditional veil right off the bat, but I wasn’t sure what to do.  I started thinking of hair vines, and then a headband with a feather fascinator.  But – I think I found it!!




I love it!  I’d get to have a veil but without the all-in-my-face-ness of a traditional veil.  I can totally make this on the cheap too – preferably with a MUCH smaller flower.  Even cooler, it’s the “Ashley” design from Sara Gabriel.  I’m thinking of making it in red and doing a purple flower (maybe even a d20 in the center of the organza flower…i’ll have to play around a bit)

Since this is something that can be easily done now – I’m gonna get started!  Yay wedding project!  I’ll post pictures!

Example Tie

We bought a tie and did a mock-up of one we’re considering.  The tie color isn’t exact (since we couldn’t find a purple to match – we’ll have to buy them all online at once) but the print is what we’re looking for.  My camera phone doesn’t do it justice.

Hair Vine Trial

I was pretty disheartened by my last attempt at a hair vine.  It was pathetic looking at my hair is really thin.  But, I was so enamored of the idea that I made another attempt.  It’s not quite 100% of what I’m looking for, but it’s WAY closer than last time.  Maybe I can incorporate something like this into a half updo?  I know the picture is terrible – so many times my phone is the only camera I have easily available.

I’m thinking of trying to find silver leaf and flower beads – something to consider.

Over the weekend I made a hair vine!  The hair vine turned out pretty darned cool….but it looked terrible in my hair!  My hair just wasn’t thick enough to even begin to hold something that complicated.  <sigh> back to square one!

We are looking to do our photos bright and early, so I am looking for a hairstyle that I can pull off myself (or with the help of friends).  I am looking for a style that is more casual and relaxed feeling than a stiff updo.  I remembered particularly liking Susan’s hair in the Chronicles of Narnia movies, so I thought I’d look at some of her hair again and see what I could find. 


I know the last picture is pretty blurry – there was a lot of motion in the shot apparently. I think I like the sides pulled back in either a braid or twist or some sort of accessory, with the rest down.  What do you all think?

Corset Cuff

I saw this on a message board.  It’s WAY too much, but the idea is pretty cute.  I wonder if there is a way i could simplify this down…

Probably not for the wedding, but cute nonetheless.

Hair Vines

I saw the niftiest little hair accessory yesterday that I had never seen before:  hair vines.  A quick google shows they’re pretty much only popular for weddings which may explain why I hadn’t heard of it before.  Take a gander – i think they’re adorable.  And – I could totally make my own.
