Once you have found the perfect wedding dress, it’s time to complete your bridal look with wedding headpieces. These are a must for any wedding ensemble. Start with the fact that they’re beautiful complements to your bridal gown and pair beautifully with bridal veils. And don’t forget that they’re a great way to keep your hair out of the way while still staying stylish. Last, but certainly not least, is they add a joyful sparkle and glamour to any outfit.
If you’re not sure about whether to add wedding headpieces to finish your look, here are some simple tips to consider when shopping for your bridal hair accessories.
What to Consider When Choosing Wedding Headpieces
1. Your hairstyle.
Your wedding hairstyle is the first thing you should consider when deciding on a hair accessory. It determines the type of wedding headpieces you pick for your special day. Bigger wedding hair accessories are more suitable for long thick hair, updos, and voluminous hairstyles. The accessories will be more noticeable and the hair can stand up to the weight. If you’re wearing your hair down or you have a shorter or minimalist hairstyle, pair it with daintier or simple wedding hair accessories which add glitz to your look without outshining you.
2. Your wedding theme.
Whether you are the ball-gown princess bride looking for shimmery royal wedding hair accessories or the boho-chic bride who fancies bridal hair flowers, your headpiece is the perfect opportunity to add a touch of personal style and also make a directional style choice on your big day. It should enhance your overall style, not detract from it. Unique wedding headpieces can unify your wedding theme to give you that beachy, boho, royal, or vintage style you’re going for.
3. The color of your wedding accessories.
The hue of your wedding hair accessories should coincide with your style and theme. Stay true to your personal style and wedding theme, and choose a color that will brighten your look while complementing it. The general rule of thumb is to pair cool-hued wedding hair accessories embellished with crystals or diamonds, such as the Antique Silver Princess Tiara Headpiece, with white and/or silver-toned wedding dresses.
Headpieces with warm hues such as gold, rose gold, and/or pearl embellishments, like the Champagne & Gold Rhinestone Tiara, pair well with ivory, champagne and off-white gowns.
4. Consider a second accessory.
If you cannot decide on one specific look, consider a second (or even third) accessory for your big day. Get creative and have lots of fun putting together your ensemble. You can start off with a romantic updo paired with a headband, like the stunning Vintage Couture Side-Accented Crystal Bridal Headband, for the ceremony.
Choose bridal hair accessories that add fun, personality, and interest to your ensemble. After all there are no rules, just as long as your accessories match your theme and the setting of your ceremony and reception.
5. Be You.
Choose bridal headpieces that celebrate your authenticity and personal style. Go with what represents you. Most times, that’s the boldest statement you can make.
