For my wedding, I had initially wanted to wear a flower in my hair but wanted to only use a fresh flower. Thankfully I realized that a fresh flower probably would have never made it through my afternoon vineyard wedding (a big wilted flower would have made terrible pictures). So as an alternative, I started to shop around for vintage looking brooches. I finally found the one that went perfectly with my dress and jewelry. With the help from a lot of bobby pins, my hairdresser was able to affix the pin in my updo and it never budged.
