1920s: More hats, more streamers - please!

Over this past weekend I was in Chicago for a funeral of a woman who led an amazing life. While we were in her home I happened upon this photo of her mother, getting married in the 1920s. I started to look around and found many pics like this. I noticed that the bouquets were huge, the streamers long, and the head-gear - glam.

I know the photo didn't take well through the glass, but I thought I'd share this photo anyway. I've dug up a few other pics online to share for inspiration.

If you really want to go traditional - but not traditional, then think about dialing up the scale, dialing up the fresh fern, and adding some sheer ribbon knots with trinkets... perhaps crystals or little milagros?
