1930s Style Bridal Headband – Take 2

I tore apart the 1920s style headband I made for my veil and completely restyled it this weekend.  I really loved it and everything, but it wasn’t exactly right for my gown – especially since I added the super ruffly bolero.  I decided to add even more ruffles, a couple little bows, and now . . . oh now it’s magnificent.  NOW it’s perfect.

Well it will be perfect after I’ve added a few more tiny floral buds above that bow there, but anyway, the design is perfect for my dress – more 30s, I think.  Speaking of those little floral buds . . .  my greatest discovery ever . . .

I really wanted antique wax blossoms for my veil, but couldn’t spend hundreds of dollars on them.  I had completely given up on the idea when I spotted these pearly floral sprays at Joann.  I started tearing them apart this weekend and unveiled the perfect modern version of wax blossom buds. Behold:

If you’re looking for wax blossoms for your veil and would rather spend $2 instead of $300, then run to Joann now.  I searched the internet high and low and could not find these anywhere else, and apparently they’re a one-time seasonal item at Joann.  They come in all sorts of pastels as well, so you may have to dig.  Just unwrap the floral tape for these perfect pearl buds.  What luck!
