Jennifer Behr ‘Dorothee’ Headpiece ($675 at Jennifer Behr)
I know I’ve abandoned my Bridal Love posts since getting married last September. I’m not sure how many of you are planning to tie the knot in the near future (if not just skip this post — super girlieness ahead), but I’ll sneak in a couple of bridal posts here and there.
I found choosing the accessories to be the most difficult part. Especially headpieces, since that’s what everyone will be focusing on and what the camera will immortalise forever and ever. What’s on your head is almost more important than the dress: if your headpiece looks cheap, everything will look cheap.

Another thing we learned? Tiaras rock. But one could get the same look just as easily with a headband (and it will be less cheesy). In fact, one could wear them any day of the year — I wear my Jennifer Behr ‘Crystal Twist’ all the time!

I also love the idea of wearing your hair down, decorated with a pretty headband or a pin. Your hairstyle depends so much on the dress. In my case, my outfit was all about the shoulders. The top had giant ruffles (it was a Lanvin) that cleared half way up my neck so a chignon was my only option.

So what did I wear? This gorgeous Jennifer Behr (my fave) flower comb and I will treasure it forever. Thankfully, it’s very wearable in a non-wedding situation (unlike a veil) so I’ve worn it a couple of times since.
My intern Shakeira who is “obsessed” (her words, not mine) with weddings initially picked about ten pieces, and then I added another ten or so. To avoid bridal overload, I spent two hours (no kidding!) deliberating what to keep. It shows you that even after one has already been hitched, there is still a little bit of a Bridezilla left somewhere deep down.
So….Who’s getting married?
