Hair Pins: For an elegant updo, hair pins add the perfect touch of sparkle without stealing the show. If you’d prefer something simple and subtle that will help keep your hair in place, consider this option.
Browband/Drape: Perfect for adding a hind of vintage glamour, these designs generally sit across your forehead and can feature either a side or centre focal point.
Hairvine: These are another versatile choice and are flexible by design so can be worn in a variety of ways. for a boho or hippy look they can be worn accross the forehead as a circlet and tied at the back with ribbons, worn over the head like a hairband, or even woven into a plait or vintage curls and gripped into place.
Hat: A hat carries a bit of a retro vibe, but can work really well with certain theme weddings or appropriately replace a veil for some religious ceremonies. Additionally, hats are wonderful for beach and other outdoor weddings as they’ll help keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face (which is important for those must have wedding photos!).
Veil: This formal, traditional headpiece is a no-brainer for many brides, yet others are unsure whether they want to stick with this tradition or not. An easy compromise to appease older family members is to wear a veil for just the ceremony and then remove it for the reception. You can always says you’re afraid to ruin it if you need an excuse to don that tiara!
