Complete Your Dream Bridal Look: How to Choose Your Bridal Headpiece

Once you’ve found your dream dress, the next step is finalizing your bridal ensemble with accessories! Shoes, jewelry, hairstyle — and hair accessories! Bridal hair accessories are the finishing touch to your wedding look. The question is, with so many options, how do you choose?

There are many things to consider when selecting your bridal hair accessories. Read on for our top 7 tips and things to consider when choosing your perfect look!

Your Bridal Gown

Your wedding dress sets the style for your whole bridal look. It is important to take the color, style, silhouette, and material into consideration, including any jewels, lace, and other decorative elements. If your wedding gown has a lot of detailed embellishments, you will want to take this into consideration when selecting your hair accessories as well. If you have a more simple or minimalist wedding dress, that leaves you more open to choosing any type of hair accessory.


Your Bridal Hairstyle

Updo or down? Straight, curly, or wavy? Low bun, high ponytail, chignon, or twist? In addition to choosing your dress, we recommend figuring out your hairstyle before shopping for hair accessories like a headpiece or veil.

Your Personal Style

Whether your go to style is boho or romantic, classic or trendy, romantic, elegant, dramatic, or anything in between, the most important thing is that you stay true to yourself. This is your special day, and you should feel your most beautiful, your most authentic, and your most FABULOUS!


Your Jewelry

In addition to you dream and hairstyle, it’s important to consider your jewelry as well when choosing your bridal hair accessories. It’s best to stay with the same color metal so your hair accessories match your earrings, necklace, and other jewelry. If you have rhinestones or pearls in one you may want to find a complementary piece so the look flows. Together your jewelry and hair accessories make the perfect accent to your gown, while drawing attention to your glowing, radiant face.
