Your wedding day is no doubt a momentous occasion, and every detail contributes to the overall magic of the day. One of the most enchanting ways to enhance your bridal look is through carefully chosen hair accessories. 

Whether you're aiming for a classic, bohemian, or modern style, the right hair accessory can help show your personality and style. Let’s explore the world of bridal hair accessories so you can find the perfect adornment for your special day.

Types of Bridal Hair Accessories

1. Hairpins and Hair Combs


These are ideal for a subtle look. They usually come in delicate designs — pearls, crystals and florals — but there are now more modern, minimalist options too. They’re perfect if you like to wear an updo on your special day.

2. Headbands and Halos



Headbands and halos are great for various hairstyles — loose wavy curls, an updo, half-up and half-down. Modern marriers can opt for elegant minimalist designs while those who like boho can go for floral designs. 

3. Tiara or Crown


Want to make a statement on your wedding day? Let your hair accessory do the talking. Pick a tiara or a crown and live out your royal wedding dream.

4. Veils and modern alternatives


Veils are still a popular choice, but there are ways now to give it a modern spin. You can opt for a colourful veil or one that’s embroidered or embellished. If you want a veil but don’t want one that goes over your dress, you may opt for stylish alternatives such as a birdcage veil, fascinator or hair vine.

How to Choose the Right Hair Accessory

1. Match with Your Dress

This may go without saying but a great way to find the right hair accessory is by considering the style and detailing of your wedding dress. You don’t need to match it exactly — you can even opt to go for a slight contrast — but make sure the look is cohesive from top to toe.

2. Complement It With Your Hairstyle

Speaking of a cohesive look, make sure your hairstyle works with the headpiece you’re wearing! Chat with your hairstylist to find out the best possible pairing for the hair style you’re looking to wear. 

3. Consider Your Overall Theme

You probably already know this, but aligning the look of your hair accessories with the theme of your wedding is a must. While we encourage you to wear what you love, we also recommend taking the setting into consideration when choosing your headpiece. 

Cathedral veils are designed for, well, cathedrals! But it doesn’t mean you can’t wear it elsewhere. You may want that swept-away shot for your bohemian-inspired beach wedding — veils are perfect for that. For this, you’re gonna need to forego the embellishments and keep it simple — maybe even opt for a bohemian headpiece.

4. Personalise with Meaningful Elements

We’re sure you’d love to incorporate personal elements into different parts of your wedding — why not your headpiece too? Got a favourite colour you want to wear on your wedding day? Why not incorporate that into your headpiece? Or perhaps you want your initials or a quote inscription. A headpiece is the perfect avenue for that too.
