THE ZEN OF BRIDAL HEAD PIECE
How any Princess can choose the best bridal head piece.
With so many options and designs to choose from, you need to remind yourself that this is easy when you know what you’re doing. We’re going to help you narrow down your style and what’s best for your special day.
The different styles of Bridal Head Pieces are:
Bridal Barrett/Hair Clip: This is a great option if you plan on letting your hair down for the wedding. You’ll be able to clip back some of your hair or bangs to keep them out of your face while still showing off flowing curls.
Bridal Hair Comb: These work well for accenting an updo or embellishing a simple veil, particularly a birdcage veil. You can also often find a comb to perfectly match any adornments on your gown!
Bridal Tiara: You can wear these alone or with a veil, and whether you hair is up or down. Not only is a crown or tiara versatile, but there’s no better way to complete the princess look!
Feather Fascinator: A fascinator is perfect for incorporating a vintage feel to your wedding attire, and can be worn with almost any hairstyle. Many brides choose to attach a pouf or birdcage veil to finish the look.
Bridal Hair Flower: If your dress has a flower accent, using flower hair accessories is ideal for tying together your look. You can get a formal flower pin or clip. Be sure to use the same flower in your bouquet for consistency, though!
Bridal Hair Vine/Headband: These are another versatile choice. They can be worn to keep your hair out of your face if you wear your hair down, or provide a subdued crown look with an updo style. Hairvines or headbands are also a flattering choice for brides with short hair that might not be able to wear many of the other types of bridal headpieces.
Bridal Hat: A hat carries a bit of a retro vibe, but can work really well with certain theme weddings or appropriately replace a veil for some religious ceremonies. Additionally, hats are wonderful for beach and other outdoor weddings as they’ll help keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face (which is important for those must have wedding photos!).
Bridal Veil: This formal, traditional headpiece is a no-brainer for many brides, yet others are unsure whether they want to stick with this tradition or not. An easy compromise to appease older family members is to wear a veil for just the ceremony and then remove it for the reception. You can always says you’re afraid to ruin it if you need an excuse to wear that tiara!
