Despite the odds against “happily ever after,” every year thousands of young couples all over the world gaze into each other’s eyes and swear eternal love and devotion; and summer is High Season in the wedding business.
While the image of the demure, blushing bride has changed considerably since I was a blushing bride almost 40 years ago, call me old-fashioned and/or hopelessly out of touch, but I truly believe that when little girls dream about their wedding day, they still dream of looking like a story book princess. Of course, it’s worth asking what a story book princess bride looks like these days.
From what I have observed, the biggest change in bridal attire over the years is in the headpieces. Headpieces are always a dead giveaway as to the decade, often down to the year, a wedding took place.

Recently, Madame Figaro spotted a new trend in bridal head pieces that I think is absolutely adorable……on the right bride.

The look is at once vintage and cutting edge. If you choose to wear one on your wedding day, I advise designing the whole wedding ensemble around this signature piece. Otherwise, it will look like an afterthought, which will destroy the whole effect.

For a big ‘ole Texas style wedding back in the US of A, embellishing your straw cowgirl hat with a veil secured by a big ‘ole bow is always a good idea – the bigger the better. We are, after all, in Texas.
And don’t forget the cowgirl boots! Those boots were made for dancin’ the night away with your favorite cowboy on your special day.
