Once you have set your mind on the dress you will be wearing on your big day, it is time to look at the rest of the accessories that will pull your wedding day look together. Hair accessories add the perfect finishing touches to your look, and there is a huge variety to choose from.
Whether your long locks tumble down your shoulders or you have a short hairstyle, a good hairpiece can add a touch of sophistication to your total look. Here are some tips to help you select a headpiece that will add extra glamor to your bridal look.
Buy your headpiece only after you have zeroed in on your wedding dress
Wait till you have finalized your wedding dress to look around for any accessories, including your headpiece. This is to make sure that the designs don’t clash when put together. Silver is the most popular color for hair accessories, as it goes with most wedding dresses. Gold headpieces complement champagne or gold-colored wedding gowns. Headpieces are also available in white or with crystals and embellishments in various colors.
Decide on the TYPE of headpiece that you would like to wear
Headpieces are available in the form of headbands, tiaras, combs or hairpins. While the first three form prominent displays, hairpins are subtle adornments that accent your hairdo with a touch of sparkle. Your wedding day hairstyle should determine your choice.
Hair combs are the ideal choice if you put your hair up in a bun or chignon. Tiaras and headbands are versatile, and you can add them to almost any hairstyle. Experiment with placing them flat, or lifting them up against your crown, to find the look that you like.
Hair pins are ideal if you are already wearing other noticeable pieces of jewelry. These add the finishing touches to your hairdo, without going overboard with details. It is a good idea to try on your headpieces with the hairstyle that you intend to wear for your wedding, so you can choose well.
Make sure all your accessories are well coordinated
The various elements of your wedding attire—your dress, veil, headpiece and jewelry, should all come together harmoniously. For this you should envision your wedding day look, before you go shopping. This will allow you to mix and match appropriately.
If your dress is rich in details, choose simple accessories that do not shift focus from your splendid wedding dress. If your dress is relatively simple, you can enhance your look with ornate jewelry and elaborate headpieces.
Your headpiece and the rest of your accessories should help create a look that matches your personality. You can choose to look beautiful and sophisticated in a single statement piece, or spectacular and bold in a collection of pieces. Either way, remember that it is not everyday that you can walk around in public wearing a tiara; so make the most of your wedding day when you can be the princess you always longed to be.
