head wear...

I don't get it. Why when people get married do they feel the need to wear something on their head. It seems people feel the need to have something on their heads, if they don't wear a veil they have a fascinator, a hat, fresh flowers, a garland, headbands or hair jewellery. I know sometimes it finishes off the outfit or is part of a tradition they feel is important but I struggle to see why people feel they must have something in their hair, and stress over what to have. I'd love to see more people shun the bridal head wear, if its not right for you let your hair be naked I say.

Full discloser: I'm not going to be going naked, I'm going to wear a birdcage veil over my eyes, no feathers or flowers, probably just a brooche to hide the combs. Why, not because I feel I feel I have to wear something on my head but because it finishes off the look I'm after. I really want a vintage old world glam look.

Drew rocked the veil like the one I will make, though I think it will be a little smaller, only about halfway down my nose. Image found on www.dailymakeover.com

Anyway the reason I bring this up is because my MOH really wants to wear something in her hair, (she all has a desire to make everything matching). So what to do, I don't want to tell her not to wear something in her hair if she wants to but I don't want her to dress everyone up in matching head bands that look great on a 12 years but not so chic on a 25 year old and it needs to suit the outfits, I really don't want it to look out of place.

So now I'm searching for cool head wear, I never thought I'm be doing this, worrying about headwear... for bridesmaids. Anyone got any ideas.

Have to say I love the look Drew is rocking!

Although as a Brit obviously I love all headwear. Well chic headwear!
