Pretty Hair Pieces

One of my current favorite bridal style trends is the hair piece. Today's Brides have the choice of pearls, flowers, feathers, & bows to add both style and personality to an updo or a veil.

This pretty flower by oh my deer completes the bride's messy updo, perfectly.

I adore these lovely yet understated pieces found on etsy. The effect a single pin can have on an updo is just striking. What's more, these pretty pieces are very reasonable; the cost-conscious bride does not have to sacrifice style.

Both simple & stunning, a single hairpin can complete a bride's look.

I am also excited to see bridal parties using hair pieces as bold ways of expressing style. Although real flowers are very often used, I like the idea of faux floral pieces as these can be used again and again to update any outfit.

I know this look isn't for every bride.

What are your thoughts?

I love that brides are wearing flower head pieces instead of veils. I am a huge fan of this look.

A friend of mine is getting married next year and wants to do flower accents in all our hair, and I can't wait!

These are all beautiful! I wore real gardenias in my hair, but it would have been nice to have faux flowers that I could have worn again!

oh, i love these. they are so my style. my veil was just a piece of sheer cloth attached to the back of a simple white wreath of roses {not real, of course.} i think adding these touches in the hair on the wedding day or any day is perfect for the right person—i guess not everyone can or wants to pull it off.

thanks for stopping by my blog. i'm glad you did so that i could discover yours—which i will now follow as well. i think you will be a great resource for me, as i plan to start my own custom wedding invitation design business.

have a great day!

Love it! My cousin wore her hair up and off to the side when she got married and had a beautiful orchid. It was gorgeous!
