let me brooch the subject of hair bling for all you lovely brides...

Are you a modern bride who also loves a bit of vintage? A great way to go vintage without taking it to extremes is to add a bit of antique hair bling with a brooch. The hair stylist you use should be able to pin it in so that it looks effortlessly elegant like this bride whose wedding I photographed here. She got the brooch online from England, but there are loads of Irish antique shops in Dublin too.

 I'm a big fan of antique brooches and I use them on a chain as a really original necklace. I think a great idea would be to keep an eye on some particular colours on Ebay. Then have your bridesmaids pin them in their hair. For example, if the bridesmaids dresses are lavender, then have a look on Ebay for brooches in complimentary colours like green and plum. Use search terms like rhinestone, enamel, crystal, and rivoli with your vintage brooch search. Some fabulous vintage quality costume jewelery brands are Coro, Kramer, and Lisner.
