A Frilly Fascinator
A British Royal wedding and Diamond Jubilee in the past few years has influenced wedding styling across the pond. British-style hair accessories called fascinators have been all the rage for brides-to-be. Fascinators are constructed pieces, either on a large barrette or headband, and can contain everything from flowers and feathers to beads and lace. They're traditionally worn on the side of the head, and range from classic and chic to completely over the top. If you're considering a flowery fascinator, choose a medium-sized single blossom, such as a peony or poppy, as the focal point. Since fascinators generally take some work to construct, the flower will most likely be silk, so there's no worry about wilting.
