Our gorgeous Amixi range is perfect for both a dash of subtle sparkle or plenty of glitz and glamour. It’s totally up to you! So, whether you want just a scattering of stylish pins or a beautiful boho halo, you’ve come to the right place...
How to choose your accessory
- Be inspired by your dress: All of your accessories need to complement the main event; your beautiful dress. So, if you’ve gone for a sleek modern style, you might like to add some extra glitz. Alternatively, if your dress is heavily embellished, then a single, well-chosen accessory may work better.
- Choose your hairstyle: Knowing how you want your hair will help you choose the right hair accessory. For example, if you’re wearing your hair down you’ll most likely need a lighter comb or clip, unless you’re blessed with beautiful thick hair. If you’re going for a neat bun or updo it can probably take the weight of a heavier, more dramatic accessory.
- See it from all angles: As you did with your dress, make sure you know what it looks like from every angle. Ask the sales assistant to take snaps on your phone to help.
- Location, location: Where you place your hair accessories can change your look from contemporary to classic in an instant. Try them in different places to find the right positioning for you.
Below we’ve picked some of our favourite types of hair accessories to help you chose. Also, for more advice, head to your nearest WED2B store. Our Bridal Experts can help you try on different hair accessories, offer styling tips, suggest matching items and much more.
Hair slides, like our beautiful Evie design, are a versatile choice. Light enough for fine hair, they can be clipped into an updo or a half up/half down style. They can also be worn on one side for a touch of contemporary chic. We love Evie’s ivory pearls, crystals and gems, as well as the hand-painted, silver-plated leaves that give it a luxurious feel.
Alternatively, for a more autumnal feel, try Safia. It features delicate leaf and floral details, complemented with beads, pearls and crystals.
The leaves and branches are also mouldable, making this slide easy to wear with different looks.
If you’d prefer a simple, understated style with just a dash of sparkle, then hairpins could be the look for you. Our Honey pins are floral and feminine and set with sparkling gems in a delicate shape. They come in a set of three, in rose gold or silver, so they’re great value and super easy to style.
Combs work best accenting an updo at the back or side of the head but can also be worn with the hair down and swept to the side. Our Lorelei comb is available in either rose gold or ivory and features a stylish leaf design decorated with clear beads, crystals and gems. There are also exquisite hand-painted, silver-plated leaves to finish the look.
For something with a more sophisticated feel try elegant Odetta, which is perfect for a classically traditional wedding. It features pearls, gems and crystals and looks dreamy as part of an updo with one of our stunning veils.
Halos are super romantic and look amazing as part of a vintage or boho style wedding. Our beautiful Sophie halo is available in either blush or ivory and features delicate silky flowers, pearl details and a soft ribbon fastening. It’s the finishing touch that will ensure you - or your flower girls - will look as pretty as a picture!
