Wedding Accessories - The Hair Comb ..

I'm so excited today because when I came home I had a parcel waiting for me.  I first thought it was my corks which I have been waiting six weeks for to arrive from Canada to finish off my place cards, and had forgotten that I'd ordered a little something from Light in the Box, an online company.

The inside of the box - isn't it pretty (my photo)

It was my beautiful sparkly hair comb which I had found for $30 on the Light in the Box website, after trailing through many eBay and Etsy stores. I was quite impressed with their service. I ordered it last week and it was estimated to arrive on the 25th, but it came early. Yay!

The pretty box to keep it in (my photo)

I'm lucky enough to have my friend staying with me and she took a photo of it in my hair. Just for those new to reading this blog, the photo with the hair comb in, is not how I'm going to have my hair, that's how I usually wear my hair when I'm kicking around the house or on my days off. Have included the one which I had taken at my make up and hair trail so you can imagine what it will look like.

And it's arrived in perfect time so I can take it along to my wedding dress fitting on Friday to make sure the dress fits and is the right one before I take it home- will post about this then as I'm sure to be rather excited. Will have another fitting closer to the big day as well. I get to try it with my veil and shoes as well so I can work out whether I'm on the right track with accessorising the dress. So can't wait. It's all very exciting!

    1. Yeah definitely check them out. As they've got specials on all sorts of things. I think my comb was supposed to be $124 but it had been marked down in their sale, (whether that was a gimmick or not to increase sales). I think its been reduced even more as when I went back to leave feedback on the page, It was $24.95, so you never know what you might find. They have a decent range as well.
