Wedding Hair Accessory Shopping Tips
Before you buy a headband, comb or hair pin, read through these pro tips:
1. First, consider your hairstyle. Your wedding day 'do can help determine the type of wedding hair accessories you choose. Big updos and voluminous hairstyles work well paired with heavier pieces, while daintier and simple wedding hair accessories suit shorter and minimalist hairstyles.
2. What's your theme? Whether you're the boho-chic bride with wedding hair flowers or the ball-gown beauty with a shimmery wedding tiara, your choice should enhance—not distract from—your overall style. Bridal hair accessories can solidify your theme to give you the vintage, beach or rustic style you're going for.
3. Take hue into consideration. Your bridal hair accessories should coordinate with your style, outfit and overall color palette. Stay true to your taste, but consider these general rules of thumb: Choose warmer-colored wedding hair accessories (think: gold, rose gold and pearls) for ivory, champagne and off-white wedding dresses; if you're wearing a stark white or silver-toned gown, try cooler-colored bridal hair accessories like diamond or crystal hair jewelry.
4. Go for that second and third look. Many brides who can't decide on a specific look are now getting creative and having a ton of fun putting together a second (and even third) outfit change during the course of their special day. Why not change your hairstyle too? For example, you could let down your ceremony updo and switch to a romantic all-down reception hairstyle. Replace the comb from your vow exchange with a trendy headband to complete the look. Remember: There are no rules, just as long as your wedding hair accessories play well with your other big-day details.
