Choosing your wedding hair accessories can be a daunting task even for the most style savvy of brides. Wedding hair accessories absolutely perfect a bridal look but I know that for some brides they don’t know where to start when it comes to choosing them. With an award-winning range of wedding hair accessories on offer, we are very happy to try and ensure this process is an easy and informed one by sharing our expert tips on what to consider when thinking about your wedding hair accessories. Hair accessories today offer so much for the modern bride but with the help of a jewellery designer like myself, why not create something that is made just for you?
Let’s go back to basics
When choosing your bridal hair accessory, the two key things to consider are your dress and how you plan to wear your hair. There are no hard and fast rules so let your personal taste guide you.
Your bridal hair accessory should work in harmony and complement your dress, ensuring the balance is just right. For example, if you’re wearing a slinky-but-plain dress, a Deco-inspired headpiece with tons of opulent embellishment like our ‘Mia’ vintage side headpiece will make an aisle-worthy impact. A jewelled birdcage veil is a super chic choice to complement a Fifties tea length dress. Or, if relaxed bohemian glam is more your style, then an organic vine of crystals or bridal browband like our ‘Amelia’ bridal browband worn around your head will look amazing with a vintage lace or floaty dress. A princess style dress will be crying out for that amazing traditional style of tiara, like our beautiful ‘Ellen’ tiara.
Think about how you want to wear your hair on the day and make sure this can work with your dress. Then you may decide you want a chic chignon or elegant up-do for which our ‘Myleene’ hair comb looks sensational with. Bridal headbands are a pretty safe option for an up-do or a down-do and you can’t go wrong with either our bestselling ‘Polly’ side headband or our ‘Stacey’ bridal headband.
Hair combs work best when at least some of the hair is worn up, and our ‘Kirsty’ bridal hair comb would be perfect for this. If you plan on wearing a veil this should be kept on a separate comb, allowing it to be removed after the ceremony.
Hair pins and clips are great for building detail in a more organic way. Tuck them into hair in threes or wear scattered throughout the hair. Our set of ‘Annabelle’ bridal hair pins or ‘Sienna’ bridal hair pins are perfect examples of classic pins and are also ideal hair accessories for bridesmaids.
