Though veils are the traditional bridal headpieces, alternatives have become commonplace with today’s modern brides. Veils are also often combined with other hair jewelry such as tiaras or hats to create a unique wedding day look.
Tiaras used to be reserved for royalty, but they have now become a top hair fashion accessory for today’s bride. These beautiful headpieces are now affordable pieces of costume jewelry that are often adorned with sparkling rhinestones and pearls.
Expensive celebrity tiaras made from real jewels are often available as less-expensive reproductions in the accessory section of your local bridal salon. Whether worn alone or with a veil, they are sure to make you look like a princess on your special day. And don’t forget to show your tiara to your hair stylist well before the wedding so that he or she can incorporate it appropriately into your wedding day hair.
For many brides, a tiara may seem too fussy or glamorous. For a more natural look, a simple crown of flowers may be all that is needed, by itself, or with a detachable veil. Flowers can also be worn directly in the hair, with complimentary satin ribbons woven into braids. Many women of Asian,
Hawaiian, and Hispanic heritage are choosing to incorporate vibrant tropical flowers into headbands and headpieces.
If you are looking for a unique style or more elegant air for your wedding, consider topping off your attire with hats. If you’re contemplating having a wedding with a retro look, a New Year’s Ceremony, or even a very elegant evening wedding, hats may be a fabulous fashion addition to your wedding ensemble. You may even want to add top hats for your male attendants to accent their wardrobe. The same goes for the ladies—consider netted pillbox hats or small caps with feathers for deco-dressed attendants. The Easter parade wouldn’t be complete without bonnets— have them accompany whimsical matching ankle length gowns for a spring or summer wedding.
