        I'm wearing a veil and a flower...I think.

        Tammy, your flowers didn't fall off the pin? I tried to do the same thing this weekend and the flower fell off. I'm not sure why...I think I'll try again. I also didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for a flower clip.

        What type of clip did you use? I used a bobbypin looking thing from Michael's that had a flat round area on it. Or did you use an alligater type clip?

        Super cute!

          By the way, why is the title of the thread "hey Ann"? You didn't want to share your brilliance with the rest of us j/k. :)

            lol - it's a sisterly thing!

            i do plan on wearing a veil and a flower, then taking the veil off after the ceremony and just having the flower. i ended up ordering these (link below) but am now wondering if i could do something like Tammy did for the flower girls or something.

                LOL, Sorry Jess.. Ann is my DW sister and I knew she was having problems finding a flower for her hair so I wanted to tell her what I did. lol

                So now for my Sheraton sis (that's you Jess) Yes I used the bobby pin with the flat thing on the end. It bonded really well, did you use hot glue? I used the highest setting on the glue gun so that it got really hot and it bonded really well. I also probably put more glue then what I needed just to make sure it grabbed the flower well. What type of flower did you use?

                    I understand....just had to give you a hard time...it was too easy of an opportunity to pass up :)

                    Ahh, we're Sheraton sises....is that a word? yes, I used hot glue, but my glue gun is a cheap little $2 thing and doesn't have multiple heat settings. The flower was a silk/latex orchid, probably similar to yours. I think my problem might have been that the flower was slipping a bit when I first put it on...maybe that interferred with the bonding. I'll have to try it again. I thought for sure it was going to work.

                    Ann, did you get the flowers yet? How is the quality of the flower? Is the flower attached to a bobby pin or an alligater clip? ....boy, I'm full of questions in this thread. :)

                      Jess, (or SS for short (sheraton sis))

                      If I were you I would buy a better glue gun I think I spend like 10.00 on mine and it has a high setting. Maybe your glue gun isn't getting hot enough. OR warm your glue gun up for 5-10 minutes before you use it, maybe it just wasn't hot enough yet.
