Head Over Heels: Choosing the Perfect Headpiece
By Bella Bleu Bridal
You have ordered your dress. The big decision is made...or is it? Being a bridal accessory boutique owner, we frequently see brides that are overwhelmed with the accessory process and wonder where to start. The first step is to have an idea how you are going to wear you hair to proceed with choosing hair accessories and jewelry. The hairstyle factors in when picking the headpiece and earring style. With so many accessory options out there, some wonder where to start. A good rule is “head to toe.”
Number one, the headpiece, of course! Have you ever seen a picture where the bride’s head wasn’t in it? If so, don’t book their photographer for your wedding! If you are trying to allocate a budget, make sure you prioritize on anything above the shoulders! Everyone will be looking at you...including your new groom.
The headpiece makes a strong statement about your overall bridal style and can play a key role in the rest of your jewelry, so decide “head on” what role you would like it to play. Is it a simple accent, a statement headpiece or an equal player in your jewelry selection? Once decided, you have many styles to choose from! Everything from the simple headpiece to the dramatic floral crown is being seen on brides around the world, which is adding a new and welcomed floral element to wedding fashion.
Tulle and French Net lovers unite! Veils are back in a big way. Whether you select a romantic cathedral veil or a whimsical fascinator, you can’t let this one and only veil opportunity pass you by! Take a chance on two looks: Wear your veil down the aisle, then do a quick costume change and “unveil” a glamorous reception look with an amazing headpiece.
Here are some of the 2013 headpieces styles that blow our hair back this season:
Don’t be afraid to take the glamour up a notch! This is your opportunity to select something unique and special to stand up and out like never before. We hope you gained some inspiration for topping off your wedding style and that you are ready to head out for some accessory shopping! You can go wrong if you end up “Head Over Heels” in love with your headpiece!
