Guess what… I’m getting married! In September! Eeeek!
I’ve been engaged for many (five) years but we are only now getting round to planning the actual wedding. Planning a wedding literally takes over your life. Those that have survived to tell the tale will understand where I’m coming from. So as this is such a big part of my life right now I thought I really should start blogging about the ins and outs of preparing for marital bliss!
I hope for this to be the first of many wedding themed posts. I imagine some will be nice, like this one, and in some you will find me ranting and stressing as I slowly evolve into bridezilla.
As you may know by now, I love anything that’s a little bit out there, a little bit different, and a little bit exciting. I’ve recently been looking for a bridal headband / headpiece / tiara for my wedding – I have the dress already so I’m now on the hunt for accessories. This is seeming to be quite a difficult task though as unfortunately they all appear to be rather similar, and not really to my taste.
Then I was introduced to the brand House of Halos. Arlene, the owner, designer and creative genius behind the brand makes the most gorgeous couture headpieces and accessories with her very own hands. You won’t find these in your bog standard high street bridal stores. Just take a look at some of these beauties…
Arlene also made this awesome necklace for Emeli Sande!
For something more on the spectrum of traditional, this headdress is so pretty, especially with the way the hair is styled.
What do you think of these pieces? I think they’re awesome. They’re so much more creative than anything I’ve seen so far. Sure some might be a bit ‘out there’ for a wedding, but they don’t have to be worn for a wedding! The point is they’re interesting, creative and different. I love them 🙂 Check out the House of Halos website for more gorgeous couture pieces and some amazing photography! xxx
