Original Thoughts: Part One

I'm not sure I have any original thoughts!

When I first got engaged (almost a year ago now!), I immediately jumped to dress shopping. As I was trying on dresses, I knew for. a. FACT. that I definitely, absolutely, and totally wanted to wear a flower in my hair. How romantic! How pretty! How creative and unique!

Then, I began reading wedding blogs and learned that every bride in 2009, 2010, and 2011 has worn or plans to wear a flower in their hair. EVERY bride, you ask? Really?


  1. Nope, not a creative bone in my body, everything in my wedding was inspired for something I've seen on a wedding blog! :D I wound up not finding a headband or hair flower I liked (oh he'll no, I'd never be able to make one of those!) so I wore nothing in my hair, which I think is pretty damn unique. I'll let you know if I see anything special re:hair!

  2. I knew I wanted a cupcake wedding cake... for years before I even met Rob, I knew this... once wedding planning began I saw that this "unique" idea was very commonplace. But still did it, still loved it, and still thought it was very ME. We had plenty of other "trendy" aspects of our wedding too. The best thing about your wedding day it that you're the only bride there. Do whatever will make you feel pretty, special, and bridal chic. There won't be any google images or weddingbee recaps to compare yourself to. Just you and your groom and everyone you love telling you how much they adore that flower in your hair.

  3. Nope, I don't think I have any truly original ideas either! I'm going with the hair flower too, and I'm making it myself. That's because I wasn't able to find one that I liked without feathers so I decided to make one myself!

  4. I thought that I was soooo original--and then I found wedding blogs! Fascinators, cupcakes, postcards, poster some point I thought that I dreamed them up. lol
