Loving Twigs & Honey

Lately I've been loving Twigs & Honey hairpieces. While my first instinct is to go with fresh flowers, my sister made a great point about gardenias to me last weekend - they tend to brown quickly. I'd been envisioning some combination of white and possibly red flowers, with a loose/curly/low updo. The idea of a custom Twigs & Honey piece - for me and the four girls - seems like a fantastic way to interject fun and color into our look.

I love the look of these two, even though they're a little more monochromatic that I might go with:













I am loving the color and pattern of these pieces (hello bridesmaids in polka dots!), especially since we want lots of pattern and texture in the wedding attire and decor.











All photos are from Twigs & Honey with the exception of the gorgeous pinky-peach piece, which came from the bride behind In This Instance.

Check out the Twigs & Honey blog and shop for more looks!

UPDATE: And headbands for flowergirls?! Oh yes.

Thanks for the link love! I loved my Twigs & Honey piece...

"Pros" of one of these over a real flower is that you can wear it again for an anniversary... and it can add various textures with the addition of feathers and such... and you can take it to your hair trial to get a nice visual.

I love this idea! So cute :)

Yay Heather! They would look fab on red hair, don't you think? :-)

Yes! I think it'll be a lovely addition no matter the hair color. I'd love to try a chignon bun. This would be perfect opportunity to do it!

You see Twigs & Honey pieces all over the wedding blogosphere. Here's another gorgeous one that was just published, from a wedding in Greensboro: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2008/09/29/real-wedding-beth-and-mike/

We used Twigs & Honey hairpieces for our flowergirls, the jr. bridesmaid and the maid of honor. They were gorgeous. Somehow Myra matched our fabrics perfectly! The girls did look so sweet with the lovely silk flower and all those curls.
