It’s only natural that you’ll want to have every detail of your wedding just the way you want it. We’re definitely with you on that! And we’re sure it includes your bridal headpiece. It’s like punctuation to your wedding outfit. So you have to make sure it’s just right for the style message you want to convey on your most special day.

Bridal headpieces come in a wide variety of styles, from classic veils to trendy bows and everything in between. They can add a touch of elegance, glamour, or personal flair to your bridal look. Come with us as we explore the world of bridal headpieces and how to choose the ideal headpiece to complement your wedding attire.

Bridal headpieces of today

Bridal headpieces now come in a wide range of styles to suit every bride's taste and wedding theme. Here are some of the more popular ones.


bridal veil - ford bridal trax


Veils continue to be a top choice for a bridal headpiece — they come in various lengths, from the short birdcage veil to the dramatic cathedral veil. They can be simple and elegant or intricately adorned with lace, beading, or embroidery.

Flower crowns are also here to stay. They’re perfect for those who are opting for rustic, bohemian or garden weddings. 


bridal embellished headbands - surya

Embellished headbands have become increasingly popular in the past few years as a choice for modern brides — and for good reason. They’re comfortable and versatile. You can also choose an embellished piece that will fit your style and your wedding’s theme — whether you like crystals, pearls or floral elements. 


bridal hairpins and combs - fitz

For more minimalist or traditional brides, hairpins or combs are a good choice. They can be worn by themselves or used to secure your hair or veil in place.

Choosing the right bridal headpiece

Selecting the perfect bridal headpiece for your special day doesn’t have to be nerve-racking! It can be really fun and exciting. Heed these tips to make choosing a breeze. 

Consider your dress

Your headpiece should complement your wedding dress. Colour is crucial — you probably already know: that not all whites are the same. There’s pure white, off-white, ivory, cream and more. Another good option is to opt for a customised headpiece! This way you can ensure that you get exactly what you want. (P.S. You can send us a snippet of your fabric so we can colour-match it with your headpiece!)

Match your theme

We’re sure you’ve already thought of it, but just a reminder: Consider the overall theme of your wedding. While we’re all about wearing what you love and going for what makes your heart sing, you should still consider your wedding’s theme. For example, a cathedral veil may work for a beach wedding but may be a bit difficult to rein in if it happens to get windy on your special day. 


Your hairstyle will also definitely influence the type of bridal headpiece you choose. It’ll be good to talk to your hairstylist to discuss which hairstyle works best for your dream headpiece.

Personal style

A bridal headpiece can make any outfit instantly bridal! Your headpiece should ultimately reflect your style and personality, of course! Top tip: Choose one that makes you feel like the most you.
