Autumn is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect wedding season, what with the slightly cooler breezes wafting through the air and the unmistakably delicious scent of falling leaves. It’s definitely the time of year during which many choose to tie the knot, and I cannot be happier for all of you.
With weddings, though, often comes the stress of picking not only the perfect venue (big or small, indoors or outdoors, etc.), the perfect bridesmaid and maid-of-honor dresses (so as your best friends won’t be bashing on you until eternity for choosing a not-so-flattering color or cut), the perfect wedding dress (and I know everyone will definitely be putting in a lot of time here), and not to mention the perfect Mr. Right.
When it comes to all of these choices, the one thing that always stood out to me ever since I was young were the hair accessories. Other than the long, romantic, sweeping veils that adorned the hair, though, I’ve always paid special attention to the timeless garlands of flowers, strings of jewels, or princess-worthy tiaras that seem to add just a little more sparkle to the whole wedding ensemble.
So imagine my delight when my very best friend and fellow blogger, Vicky T, asked me to appear in some photos for her handmade hair accessories’ brand, Adorn Daintily. Not only was I wowed by her artistic creations, the whole experience also satiated my cravings to get dressed up and attend an autumn wedding.
We started off with the 1920s 1930s Inspired Comb Headpiece.
With a focus on feathers, ribbons, and simple beading, this hairpiece is perfect for not only weddings, but also for upcoming Halloween costume ideas, such as the famous “flapper” girls of the roaring 20s (i.e. Claire Holt as Rebekah Mikaelson from The Vampire Diaries).
Next, is the Elizabeth Hair Comb Headpiece, named after and inspired by yours truly.
With minimal felt, feathers, ribbons, beads, and rhinestones, this hairpiece instead focuses on the abundance of tulle that gives it a very simple, quiet beauty, perfect for brides who are having a more intimate and low-key ceremony that involves only the closest friends and family members.
Moving on is the Black Pearl Comb Headpiece.
Though not really bride-appropriate, it is still a very classically elegant piece that guests can wear to weddings.
One of my personal favorites, though, is the White Sakura Floral Bridal Comb Hairpiece.
All of those feathers are perfect for the chillier months, such as November, where autumn is almost coming to an end and winter is right around the corner. The softness of the feathers really reminds me of Christmas for some reason, and I think it’ll look absolutely magical on brides who are hosting an end-of-autumn, beginning-of-winter wedding.
Finally, we ended the photo shoot with the Butterfly White Pearl and Rhinestone Bridal Comb Hairpiece.
This comb is distinct from the others because of the two leaves that adorn it, and I thought it really brought out the essence of an autumn wedding. After all, what better way to describe autumn than with falling leaves? The white coloring of these artificial leaves coincides with the soft, romantic wedding theme. With its simple elegance, it’ll not only match the cooling weather, but it’ll also bring out and highlight the bride’s natural beauty.
Thank you all for viewing, and I had a lot of fun shooting for Vicky T. Please do check out her Etsy shop here at Jun Designs. She is extremely talented, and I know you’ll all love her stuff.
