We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration and e-commerce site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their expert advice for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.

One of this year’s big trends in wedding hair accessories is elegant hair pins. Dainty hair pins and combs look oh-so-elegant when tucked into romantic braids, curls, and chignons. And though the look is very now, the hair pins themselves have a definite vintage feel; think pearls, jewels, Deco styles, and metallic touches. Here are some of our favorite hair pins for brides.

Is it hot out or what? As temperatures continue to rise, good hair accessories become a must to have on hand. There is nothing worse than being caught outside in 90-degree weather (plus humidity) and not having an easy way to put your hair up or get it off your face. I actually walk to work everyday and now that it’s July, I don’t even think about wearing my hair down because it’s just too sweltering. While I have plenty of beige ponytail holders and blonde bobby pins lying around, I need to incorporate some more color into the mix. Here are a few of the bright doodads that have caught my eye and given how affordable they all are, I have no reason not to experiment.
