When it comes to getting ready for that momentous day, there are so many elements to take into consideration. Your wedding dress is a very important element, some would even say, the most important element. And to go with that dress, you have to pick which one of the amazing bridal headpieces available you would wear.
With the dazzling array of options such as tiaras, headbands, hair clips, fascinators, combs and veils available, this decision can seem very daunting! RELAX, take a deep breath!!! Selecting the right headpiece to complement your wedding dress is a matter of personal taste and also the kind of image you want to portray. Letting your personality shine is important. Think of your bridal headpiece like the pretty bow on top of a beautifully wrapped present. Allow the bridal headpieces to highlight your hairstyle and face while unifying your wedding attire.
Keep in mind that as the bride, you will be the center of everybody’s attention, so think of yourself as the most gorgeous bride ever (which you are of course)! Rather than just focusing your attention on your wedding dress, bridal hairstyle and makeup, giving considerable attention to the bridal headpieces you’ll wear, the finishing touches to your wedding day ensemble, is also crucial. So naturally, you need to pick the best bridal headpieces that will complement, and never distract from your perfect wedding dress. Here are a few key points to help you pick the perfect bridal headpieces for you:
Time and again, brides are confused about which to choose first—the bridal headpiece or the bridal hairstyle. The answer to that is simple: you need to follow your gut instinct. Let your hairstyle inspire your choice of bridal hair accessories or let your hair accessories determine the hairstyle.

To Veil or Not To Veil
Historically, bridal veil headpieces created a sense of mystery and fantasy as the bride floated down the aisle, face hidden under the veil. The bride didn’t unveil herself until her father presented her to the groom. As a modern bride, you have numerous options when it comes to veils and it’s agreeable to keep your face unveiled. Veils come in various lengths – shoulder, elbow, fingertip, waltz and cathedral lengths, and in two tiers – single tier and double tier. Then there’s the bird cage veils.
