8 Tips for Choosing Your Bridal Hair Accessories




#1 YOUR PERSONAL STYLE

The first thing to take into consideration when choosing your hair accessories is your personal style and the style of your wedding. Your wedding day isn't the time to venture far from your personal style. Is your style more romantic? Then a sweet flower comb or hair vine will suit you beautifully. More of a trend setter? Go for a dramatic statement piece. Having a beach or destination wedding? How about a simple and elegant hair flower. Stay true to your own personal style and look for pieces that really speak to you.

 

#2 YOUR HAIRSTYLE

After taking into consideration your personal style, the second thing that you will want to think about is your hairstyle. Our advice is to hold off on purchasing a headpiece until you are sure what type of hairstyle you will want to wear and whether you are going to want to wear a hair piece in the front, back or side of your head OR better yet, borrow hair accessories using our Try Then Buy program where you can try out pieces before you buy with no cost and no obligation. It is also important to take into consideration the thickness of your hair. While your hair stylist can do wonders to attach your headpiece, brides with thinner hair may want to stay away from bulky or heavier pieces that may have a tendency to fall out or shift throughout your wedding day.

 

#3 Your Wedding Dress

The most important aspect of your overall wedding look is your wedding dress. The dress is going to set the style for your whole look. If your dress is more simple with no embellishments, it leaves you more open in choosing any type of accessories. If your dress has more detailed embellishments, you will want to take this into consideration when choosing accessories. The color of the dress is also a consideration when choosing bridal hair accessories that also have color such as colored jewels, lace or fabric.


#4 What Color?

Silver has always been the go-to color for bridal accessories and you can never go wrong with silver but colored hair accessories are all the trend right now including gold, rose gold and opal. The general rule of thumb is that gold is going to flow best with an ivory, off-white or champagne dress and make sure to stay consistent and if you are wearing gold hair accessories, make sure your bridal jewelry is gold as well. Make sure to take into consideration and also stay consistent with any details on your dress AND the details and colors of your wedding including your flowers.
