Here’s a fairy tale bride in a fairy tale dress.  The hair, by Vivienne Mackinder, is from her Bridal L’Amour Collection, 2012. A jeweled headband decorated the head, and also kept the hair off the face. What bride wouldn’t want to look like this?    For how-to, and more brides by WorldGreat Vivienne Mackinder, click
