Great Gatsby inspired wedding hairbands

I’m going to see The Great Gatsby at the cinema this weekend, and I’m really excited about it!
Not that I’ve read the book or anything, but people have been going on about this film for over a year now, so I’ve really got some high expectations about it.

I absolutely love the fashion of the early 1900’s, and especially the 20’s.
One area in which we can see lots of inspiration from the 20’s is in today’s weddings. It has become really popular for brides to dress according to the 20’s style, and the ultimate wedding attire detail, the “icing on the cake”, is the bridal headband.
The 1920’s headband is known for being a quite thin band that goes around the whole head, and that has the “fascinator” bit on one side. Think about what the Charlestown dancers were wearing, and you’ve got it spot on!
Below are some examples on modern brides wearing a 1920’s inspired headband.
(All images are taken from wedding magazines, and are of models rather than real brides, to avoid any conflicts. These are of course for comment purposes only.)

I really love this style of headband, and I really think this is the sort of style I would consider going for when/if I get married. I’m not a veil type of girl, and a fascinator headband is just the perfect alternative.

One that I’ve really set my eyes on is this simple white pearl and flower headband from the vintage collection at Rosie Willett Design.
Which one’s your favourite? Would you opt for the 1920’s style when it comes to weddings or everyday fashion?
