A little history of the decorative hair comb –

In the Western world, decorative hair combs became necessary objects in the 1800s, when women grew their hair long but always wore it in a pile on top of their heads. Victorian and Edwardian hair combs were produced from ivory, precious metals, pewter, aluminum, brass, tortoise, amber, coral, jet, bone, horn, gutta-percha, and wood. In the 1920s and ’30s, short bob haircuts were adorned by Art Deco, Bakelite hair combs accented with rhinestones, beads, feathers, and enamel and filigree artwork. René Lalique even designed a beautiful dragonfly hair comb. source – collectorsweekly

Mixing new with some old, here are some ideas for a hat, some with veils.

Wearing a hat can bring on “hat hair”, so decide if you will wear the hat throughout your wedding and reception or changing it out for something else.

When shopping for vintage hair accessories, you will most likely land on Pinterest and that could lead you to Etsy.  I always find so many vintage items on Etsy.  Also for Vintage wedding hats, Etsy has over 6,200 results!

Try these search terms – “Wedding Hats”,  “Wedding Hair Combs”, “Fascinator Hats For A Wedding”, “Fascinator Hats”.  You will find many, many choices!
