Hey, all! As part of the wedding gift, I'm going to give my girls the jewelry they'll wear during the ceremony. Obviously I will also get them individual non-wedding-related gifts as well. My sister's ears are not pierced and she's pretty bummed that she won't be able to wear earrings. They're wearing one sleeve dresses and we couldn't find any necklaces that work with them, so I was going to do earrings and a bracelet for each of my BMs. My sister desperately wants to, but can't pierce her ears because of her psoriasis, so I thought I'd get her something pretty to wear in her hair instead! I've looked around a bit on Etsy, but you all find such lovely stuff that I've never seen, so I thought I'd ask here!

Let's see what you've got!

ETA: Clip-on earrings likely won't work and we don't want to take a chance on them. Even small things like pinching can give her psoriasis in that spot. Better safe than sorry!

    I have hair sticks. They came from the UK. They are breath taking in person.

    Check 'hair comes the bride.' Lots of pretties.

    Yes I would look into clip-ons for sure. Here's mine. It was the first thing I saw when I walked into David's Bridal (on the sale table) and we grabbed it just in case - it ended up going with my dress and veil perfectly.

    I went with hair pins. Found them on etsy.

    @Sarah I almost bought that comb! It didn't work with what I am doing to do with my hair. So pretty though!

    I made this. Proud as fuck. It wraps around the back of my hair loosely and the combs go on the side sweep. Wearing my hair down in waves.

    Oh my goodness, this stuff is great! Those hair sticks! :o

    We're hesitant to do clip-on earrings, only because of the issues she has. Basically, any sort of "injury" gives her psoriasis in that area for the foreseeable future. Because clips have a tendency to pinch (not much, but enough), I don't want to risk that being an issue for her psoriasis.

    When we first started planning, she said she was thinking about getting her ears pierced for the wedding. I told her that if she wanted to do it for her, fine. But DO NOT do it for my wedding. She gets psoriasis really bad on her scalp and ears already and I just don't want her to be in misery. I figure a hair accessory is a safe alternative and she'll still get the bling. Haha.

    Thanks so much for all of the help, ladies! These are gorgeous. Jess, you SHOULD be proud. That's stunning!

    A blingy ear cuff might suit her needs if she wanted to try that (the ones I linked aren't blingy, but there's plenty of options on etsy etc)

    My headpiece is a pearl/rhinestone headband.

    LCya, THAT IS PERFECT. Do you know where that piece came from? That would go so perfectly with the dress and her hairstyle! Ahh!
