I realize this is only pictures of 3 brides, but a Google search for "bridal fascinators" (because, of course, a fascinator is a hair flower or other type of hair adornment) yields 67,500 results. A search for "hair flower" on weddingbee.com yields at least ten pages of results, likely even more. (I also learned that while every bride in the entire world, probably including this one, is wearing a hair fascinator, these brides are also going the extra mile and making them themselves. I might have to be "original" here and just buy the damn thing, just for uniqueness's sake!)
Suffice it to say, while I thought wearing a flower in my hair would be unique and awesome and special and romantical, turns out that bridal hair flowers, I mean, fascinators are as ubiquitous as Uggs and rain boots in a sorority house.
It's just a little disappointing that something that I thought was so ME turns out to also be sooooooooo everyone else too.
Unfortunately, this is only Part One of how creative I am not. Stay tuned for the next post, where I go on to tell you all the other ideas I have apparently stolen from brides who have gone before me!
Have you ever thought you were being creative and unique, only to discover that your "original thought" was totally commonplace in wedding land? Were you bummed out by this revelation, or did you decide that you were the original trend setter, and everyone else was just following your lead (which is, secretly, what I think every time this happens to me)?
And, are you wearing a hair flower? :-)
