Wedding attire: what to wear on your head.

Yesterday, I found a dress. It wasn’t what I had imagined, because actually I couldn’t solidify what the imaginary bride-me would wear down the aisle, but it is PERFECT and I love it and I did not want to take it off. It made my mom cry, my maid of honor cry, one of my best friends cry, and I cried.

So, you know, I couldn’t leave it there. And no, I will not show you all a picture. You have to wait till the wedding to see it.

ANYWAY. I haven’t decided if I want to wear a veil or not, but something I have always envisioned was wearing flowers in my hair. And recently, I came upon Which Goose on Etsy, who makes the most gorgeous flower crowns I’ve ever seen.

Now, I can’t really afford any of these– the first one is my absolute favorite– but what I can do is make one. So today after work, I’m stopping at the fabric store, and I’m gonna buy myself some flowers, hot glue, a headband, and some ribbons and make myself a (hopefully) beautiful flower crown for my wedding. It’ll be my first DIY wedding project. I’ll try to photograph as I go to show you all how it’s done, if you’re interested.

Because everyone needs to know how to make a beautiful flower crown, wedding or no wedding. They’re just too gorgeous to pass up!

I hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday!

    these are gorgeous! I’d never be able to make something like that myself. I’m looking forward to seeing how yours turn out. 

    btw, I’m a long-time reader of your fic who just came back to your blog after a long time away. congratulations on your engagement! 

    I’ve been catching up on your entries and saw that you’re still deciding about wedding music.  I know we’re strangers and this might be weird, but I’ve got a suggestion, if you want one: “set me as a seal” by Matt Maher. it’s beautiful  and the lyrics are all taken from Song of Solomon. pretty music about love + bonus wonderful Scripture. it’s on youtube.

    Congratulations on your engagement! Another place that does really beautiful floral wreaths is a friend of mine:

    It looks about the same price range but they are so lovely! Hope you find something you like!

    I’m so glad that the first one is your favorite, because I was going to say how much that girl looks SO MUCH like you on your first “I <3 Eccentric Owl" button (the one with you in a blue top and you're against a brick wall).  I saw the resemblance right away because the two pictures just happen to be situated right next to each other.

    I'm so excited for you that you found your dress and can't wait to see what it looks like!

    I also love flower crowns and couldn't picture anything else to wear for my wedding.  Luckily for me, a mutual friend of me and my now-husband is a pro at making crowns (she makes them for Rennaisance Faires & similar events), so she pretty much insisted on making me one as a wedding present to wear on my wedding day.  It turned out absolutely gorgeous.  It was actually a crown/veil combo, which I loved.  The veil was detachable via velcro so I was unable to wear just the crown during the reception.  Maybe that's something you could do, too, if you wanted the best of both worlds.  🙂

    Anyway, I'm excited to see how yours will turn out!  It's always fun to be able to make something for your wedding.  It'll mean that much more when you wear it because you know it'll be
