At first I considered a real flower because I figured it would be cheaper and I don't need a hair flower after the wedding (I'm just not that fashionable). However, when it came to attaching a comb or pin or barrette or whatever-it-is-we're-talking-about-here to a real flower, I was lost. And no, I did not overcome this by figuring out how to do this myself and doing a couple of trials. I just gave up.
So, enter Etsy (is it eet-sy or eh-tsy? discuss.), which is great if you either: (1) know exactly what you're looking for and can type in enough keywords to narrow your search; or (2) you have nothing to do at work so you can sift through the hundreds of listings. I won't tell you which one I am.
If you know anything about hair flowers you probably know the beautiful work of Twigs and Honey. And if you don't, ta-da!
There are plenty of other sellers on etsy who make hair flowers, like Mikiye:
Mrs. Martini rocked out a gorgeous gardenia on her wedding (I also love the hairdo--it's pretty fabulous), that she got from SmittenXOXO on Etsy.
I really liked the gardenia, and have always loved gardenias because of their heavenly scent and creamy look.
So what to get? What to choose? Anyone else donning a fleur de cabeza for their big day?
