Hair Flower, I love, what do you think? PIP

I've been in search of a hair flower for awhile as I'm not wearing a veil, and keep coming back to ones with lace.  It's made with silk organza and vintage lace.  My dress however has no lace, does that matter?

Here it is, but it would be smaller, this one is 5 inches, mine will be about 3.5 to 3.75 inches:




My dress and earrings, is a hair flower to busy with my earrings?




I am wearing the earrings in the dress pictures, fyi, and my hair will be somewhat similar.

    I can't really tell how big the earrings are in the pic where you are wearing them, but either way, I love the hair flower. I also love that yours will be 2" smaller, cuz on the model it looks a bit ridic, lol.

    Also, love your dress, it looks great on you!

    They're decent size, I wanted bigger ones cause I'm not wearing a necklace, they are actually from Left Bank, based off you telling me that's where you got your bracelet from:)  They weren't the cheapest but I love them and they mimic my dress detail perfectly.  For sure on the flower being smaller.  Thanks on the dress compliment:)

    I like the hair flower :-) I don't think it matters that it has lace and your dress doesn't.

    I think it would be too much if you were going to wear a necklace too, but since you're not planning on one, I think it will all go together great. Very pretty!

    I love the hair flower and I love the earrings but I honestly think it would be too much together. I was debating on doing very similar earrings to yours or simple dangling pearl ones. I loved looking at pics of brides with big dangly earrings but that's all I look at when they are wearing them. Anyone who saw the dangly earrings on me in person said it took away from my face and my dress. This is just my honest opinion...but your dress is so pretty and so is the hair flower and you are gorgeous!

    Awe thanks for the compliments!  I do hear what you are saying, I just love the earrings so much, but I'm still debating on how I'm going to wear my hair, so once I decide that, then I'm sure I'll be able to make a final decision on everything.  Thanks for the insight/honesty though:)

    Thanks everyone for the responses/nice words! I bought the flower today off Etsy, can't wait to get it and if it ends up being too much with the earrings maybe I'll put it more towards the back of my hair, we shall see!:)

    Sara!!!  Hi!  Glad you found your way to the boards, I'm telling you best help ever.  Has the Destination board helped you out at all?  Did you decide on a venue/date etc. yet?  So excited for you!

    We should get together one day, talk weddings, or if you ever need help with anything, dress shopping etc., sometimes having too many people with you can give you too many opinions.  Lets me know:)

    Thanks for the above response also, I agree:)

    I don't think it matters, either, that the flower has lace and your dress doesn't.  It's very sweet.  My hair flower is made of feathers, but there aren't any on my dress, and that's just fine by me.

    Love the earrings!
