You’ve finally decided on the dress, so the hard work is over, right? Unfortunately, there are more important choices to make — like picking out your hair accessories. Here, wedding headpiece designer, Rosie Willett, talks us through how to decide on yours and the other considerations you’ll need to make.
Should I decide on a hairstyle or accessory first?
It’s a problem many brides face; should they commit to a hairstyle and limit the types of accessories they can wear, or choose an accessory first and limit the hairstyles available to them? However, this shouldn’t stress you out.
It doesn’t matter which order you make the choices, as long as you make the right ones. All that matters is that you feel happy and confident with both the accessory and hairstyle you choose.
There are a number of versatile accessories out there too, so whether you go for an up do or wear your hair down, you can still add some glitz and glamour to your look.
What bridal hair accessories are there?
The good news is that there’s plenty of variety available when it comes to bridal hair accessories, including:
- Tiaras — one of the most popular bridal hair accessories, tiaras will make you feel like royalty on your big day. They can be as large or as small as you like, so choose a style that suits you.
- Headbands — subtler than a tiara, this is the perfect option whether your hair is up or down.
- Hair vines — this style is growing in popularity, largely because of its versatility. Form it into a halo-shape and wear as a crown, incorporate it into a -inspired braid or let it hang freely when your hair is down.
- Hair combs — these are best worn when your hair is up or partially up. If you’re wearing a veil, make sure it’s on a separate comb so removing it after the ceremony doesn’t disrupt your hairstyle too much.
Is there anything else I should consider?
The hair style and accessory you choose should naturally match your own personal style. However, you may also want to consider other factors, such as the theme of your wedding. For example, brides with a 1920s theme should consider feathered or pearl accessories to tie their day together.
You might want to consider colours too. Gold accessories work best with champagne-coloured dresses, while silver will complement ivory gowns beautifully.
