Post summary: the simple question is what are you doing with your head? Any fun or unique veiling/crowning/hair options?
I never thought this would be the case, but the one thing - a strange detail - that it took me FOREVER to figure out, was what to do with my head. -=insert silly jokes here=-
I finally figured it out after, literally, six months of going through options. My particular things that I was concerned with: I have short hair, and I like it that way. I have glasses and will not ever wear contacts. I have a very round face.
Now, finding inspirational pictures that represent my particular things in a variety of styles was a pain in the...you know. (I am sure that every bride has this with at least ONE of their details, right?)
The thing that really had me stumped was the fact that there are so FEW times in a gal's life when she can get away with a veil (if she wants it). I just didn't want anything snagging on my glasses. My dress style is 30s hollywood glam, and any kind of traditionally colored veil was all wrong.
My solution came to me as an accident while I was playing around a hoppy store: 8-inch wide Chocolate organza with glimmering copper sparkles. It is 6ft long.
I am tying it around my head like a headband, and then adorning it with an eggplant colored jewel-and-feather fascinator behind my ear. The alligator clip perfectly catches one of the long organza tails in a birdcage/blusher style with plenty of room for my glasses and complete visibility. Then, when I'm done - or if it simply irritates me - I unclip the end and it joins the other trailing down my back/over my shoulder.
I will say that in ALL of my searching and researching there are a lot of fun options out there. What are yours?
My motto = I was a queen before the man: I'll be damned if some wedding is going to demote me.
