I purchased this headband for my wedding. Without trying it on, I was a little worried it wouldn't be sparkly enough but it's perfect. Very sophisticated and not gaudy at all. It will not be overpowering to wear this headband, plus an antique brooch in my hair, plus a simple veil! It's not flimsy at all, but made of very sturdy metal. This was way less expensive than the headbands at all of the local bridal shops I went to. Love!
