Kansas Wind + Wedding Veil? No Thank You!

Posted in wedding with tags , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2010 by Jessica Lada

Here’s the setting for the wedding:  It’ll be on a creek in the middle of nowhere in the tallgrass prairie of the Kansas Flint Hills.  There’s a long, gradual hill leading down to the creek, then a small ledge and a rock shelf below.  The grasses will be turning gold to match my hair.  My flowers, as well as the groom’s boutonniere, will be shades of cream, ivory, and white.   Kansas has a lot of wind, so I don’t want to wear a veil.  I don’t think I’m much of a veil girl anyway.  So I decided to have a gorgeous updo.  But I wanted to have some sort of decoration in my hair.

I stumbled across one of my favorite Etsy shops:  WhichGoose.

She makes crowns, tiaras, clips, and combs from natural vines, pinecones, dried leaves, along with fabulous fabrics and silk flowers.  The designs are earthy, romantic, and uniquely sophisticated.  I had the TOUGHEST time choosing a design, but I finally settled on a comb with an ivory pinecone rose, dried bay leaves, and small silk roses.

The dusty, muted hues go perfectly with my color scheme.  WhichGoose absolutely nailed my custom comb and gave me exactly what I asked for.  Not to mention, it came wrapped up in the prettiest package.

If this comb doesn’t say elegant prairie bride, I don’t know what does.
