One more wedding craft I can check off my list! It's so darn satisfying to cross them off...



I'd been planning on making my own, but was lacking the motivation to actually do it. Then, one day I got this article magically delivered to my email, and it convinced me the time had come to attempt the comb.

The comb is actually 3 small combs wired together, I couldn't find one the right size that wouldn't rip my hair out. I got the pearl and rhinestone flowers for $3 at Hancock fabrics (on sale! woohoo) and I just whipped up the brown and orange beaded doodads from some stuff I had lying around. Then I wrapped the base of it in grosgrain ribbon because it was all pokey with wires.

I also sewed my veil on after I finished, but I forgot to take pictures of it. I'm actually pretty pleased with it and it was easy. I'd say any other bride could do it themselves, too!

Very pretty!  I've noticed how expensive things like bridal combs and barrettes are if you buy them from bridal shops.  So this is awesome that you figured out how to make your own!

oooh! That is absolutely gorgeous! Be sure to get a picture of the veil too when you get a chance! It's the little things that will stand out, and this one is beautiful  Smiley

Thanks, ladies! Leah - it is ridiculous how expensive wedding related things are! I consider making stuff to be my own version of sticking it to the wedding man.

This actually didn't take very long to do at all, maybe an hour, and that includes making the little beaded thingys.

I have a fitting on Monday and I want to see if I like the length of the veil with the dress, so I will take a pic of it with the veil then and post it up!
