Everything you’re about to see in this post is amazeballs. Fair warning.
I got so excited when I found everything I’ve compiled here; they’re quite possibly the loveliest hair accessories I’ve ever seen in my adult life. (I’m sure pink Hello Kitty hair pins with my name on them were my top choice when I was a wee babe, so that’s why I’ve clarified.)
If you’re trying to achieve a natural look, you’d like to keep it simple with the ‘do, or you’ve simply got a few fly aways that need taming and you’d rather not ugly up all that pretty going on up there on your wedding day… I suggest using a few of these gorgeous twig-like pins to hold things down.
With these hair pins, you don’t have to worry about ordinary bobby pins ruining those precious and often gorgeous close up shots of your ‘do. I once did a photo shoot where I had a gazillion bobby pins up in there, and the photographer actually asked to take them out before she took any more pictures of my hair. So, with that in mind, I suggest bringing a few of these nature-inspired pins along with you for your stylist to use, or even just throwing some of them in one of your bridesmaid’s clutches, for safe keeping.
Aaaand, if you’re looking for a laugh, you should get the Solid Bronze Bird’s Nest Hair Pins…
This way you can have a bird’s nest in your hair…
… without having a bird’s nest in your hair! WIN!

P.S. – I wanna hug all of your faces. I sincerely wish that was possible. Sadly, my bosom would inevitably be involved, and I don’t have enough discretionary income to fight the harassment lawsuits that would ensue. So here’s me hugging your face, the ethical/safe/lawsuit-free way…
I can’t tell you how overwhelmingly heartwarming it is to hear from so many of you how excited you are for the launch. Believe it or not, I just can’t explain in words how it actually makes me feel. It has, on occasion, brought me to tears. But I’m a little emo, so don’t get all proud of yourselves or anything. ;) I don’t want to drone on and on about it, I just want to thank each and every one of you for loving The Knotty Bride, and being so freakin’ psyched to see what’s coming! I heart you guys! You’re the greatest, and it’s because of you that I do this every day. In fact, I can’t even imagine not doing what I do every day here on The Knotty Bride, so it’s an incredible feeling to know that you guys feel the way you do about what you see here every day.
P.P.S. – We’ll be toying around with the back-end of the site this weekend to test a few new features (such as Vendor Love™ and a bunch of other fresh awesomeness that’s on the way to your faces), so there’s a small possibility that when you visit the site over the next couple 0f days, you might be met with a message telling you we’re working on things. Please, stay calm – good things are happening. ;)
P.P.P.S – Have a splendid weekend, pretties.
P.P.P.P.S – One more thing – I heard this recently, can’t remember where, but thought I’d mention it because it’s lovely…
May your love for one another be like the capital of Ireland – always Dublin.
