"Feather Hair Thing "

A few people have commented / asked about the "feather hair thing" (as someone called it).

After the first dance, I changed from my mom's veil, which I wore for the vows and first dance, into this fascinator:

Sometime before my wedding, I started thinking a hair fascinator or a funky veil would be appropriate for after the ceremony. Exactly 3 weeks before my wedding, I looked all over etsy like a mad woman. I found some charming items, including a beautiful mini-bubble veil. But then I found the most amazing fascinator at Hairfascinators.com @ Etsy made by Linda and Chance, a mother-daughter team. Normally, the fascinators take over 3 weeks to make, but they can sometimes help in exceptional circumstances. So I "convoed" them and asked if they could help, knowing full well that if they couldn't help, it was my own darned fault!

Well, they could help! And I got my beautiful fascinator, which is now on display in our living room (until I figure out what to do with it ... maybe I'll put it in a shadow box or something).

(And can I just add the fascinator is much more beautiful in real life than in the picture. I was just floored when I received it in the mail. It is beautiful, slightly funky and perfect!)

P.S. Happy Long Week-End, (most) fellow Canucks! It's Civic Day where I live, but whether you celebrate Founder's Day, Natal Day, or whatever else, enjoy!

It is beautiful... And how nice and sweet and kinda solemn that you wore your mother's veil...
