How do I choose the perfect wedding hair accessories?
Use your wedding mood board to figure out your wedding style. Are you a classic, modern, romantic or boho bride, for example? Classic brides will love a stately tiara like our Aurelia, below, while boho beauties might prefer a scattering of pretty hair pins, like our Tia dragonfly. Love a vintage vibe? Check out our Art Deco Gatsby headband.
Work with your dream wedding dress
Your wedding hair accessories should work with your dream dress, not against it. It’s the most important part of your look and should set the style for everything else. Simple dresses with few embellishments give you the option of going to town with your wedding hair accessories. If your dress is more detailed you’ll need to think carefully about adding extra sparkle. If there’s coloured beading or metallic lace make sure you choose hair accessories to match. For example, the iridescent gems of our Petra tiara below perfectly complement this dress's embellished straps.
Think about your hairstyle - up or down?
Choose your hairstyle first then choose the accessories to go with it. Your hairstyle should frame your face, reflect your chosen theme and suit your dress. For example, if your dress has lots of detail around the shoulders you might not want to cover it with flowing locks. Think about your hair type too. If your hair is very fine a tiara or hairband might work better than a heavier metal comb that may slip. Alternatively, an up do like this twisted French plait, peppered with our glorious Tia and Talia hair pins, will help accessories stay in fine hair and keep thicker, frizzier locks looking chic.
Choose your style...
Hair combs: These are super versatile and can be worn on the side of the head with loose hair or to accentuate most styles of up do. For example, our Maya comb here looks great as part of a low, twisted bun.
Headbands and tiaras: A classic bridal style, these can be worn with most bridal hair looks. They can be dramatic or beautifully traditional, depending on the style you choose, and can also be worn on the top of the head or across the forehead.
Hair vines: Bridal hair vines are currently bang on trend and can be twisted into lots of shapes to accent any hairstyle. Try running one through a soft braided up do, wear one on the top of your head as a headband or wrap it around a sleek bun.
Pins: Pretty pins are great for adding a little subtle sparkle. Try dotting a few through hair that’s twisted up or pick just one or two to pin back loose waves.
Hair flowers: Full of romance, these are perfect for a soft and pretty boho style. Go for one dramatic large flower or lots of little ones dotted through a casual up do. Ask your florist about creating a floral hair crown with real flowers or take a look at our Reilly crown made with beautiful artificial blooms.
