I have a confession. Graduating from college, with a degree in finance, and starting work at OneWed back in January, I was far from a wedding expert- especially when it came to bridal fashion.
How far I've come since then... Its as if I've learned a whole new language! And I must say, it was a lot more fun (and much easier) than learning Spanish or Italian!
Do you know what a Fascinator is?
Because when I started at OneWed, I sure didn't! Defined, a fascinator is a delicate, slightly-to-very frivolous head decoration worn almost exclusively by women
. Modern fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers or beads
, and are perfect for the vintage-loving bride!
I was contacted by a gal who has an Etsy shop, called Hapitat
, and her flower fascinators, brooches, and bridal bouquets (made from recycled vintage fabrics, feathers and lace) are lovely! Courtney Love Cobain is a fan (she's purchased two Hapitat pieces!), and so am I!
What do you ladies think of these statement-making flower fascinators? Would you walk down the aisle in one?
