How 1950s. Once-upon-a-time brides typically wore some version of Juliet or Camelot caps like the ones above and below. All these headpieces are special in that they adorn clusters of flowers. Flowers--whether real or silk-- really add texture, romance and sometimes color to your overall look.

Above and below remind me of the 60s-70s decade. Above, the flowers pick up the texture of the cut velvet gown. Below, this hair lei makes for a different kind of grand entrance.
Bottom: a veil attached to a cap of peonies.

I love your blog! What a great inspiration of pictures looks. Even if not all of them are "me" per say, they are so inspiring to be a little different, a little sassy, yet still traditional!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, i hope to see you around there some more... and hope you don't mind but i added you to my Link Library!

I love the 1960's vintage look, I think its so chic!

I would love to wear that look when I walk down the aisle to match my gorgeous diamond engagement ring my fiance bought me from then I would feel like a runway bride!

I also love the first photo, she looks like a princess bride!

I am a fan of the vintage look. That is for sure. Women just looked more pretty in the 60's.
