Statement Headpieces



A statement headpiece can definitely enhance your wedding dress but also compliment your gown without overpowering it. Think about your overall look and choose a piece that matches your dress perfectly. It can be a traditional crown, sparkly headband, flower wreath made of fresh blooms or even a crystal studded hair comb. Whether you are going for an elegant up-do or a relaxed down-do, formal reception or a beach wedding, the right accessory can improve your overall look and make you feel even more sophisticated and chic!


Wedding Tiaras 

A tiara is a classical choice, perfect for more traditional weddings. It can look lovely with a long tulle veil which you can remove after the ceremony, leaving only a sparkly tiara on your head. From family heirloom and gorgeous vintage pieces to modern tiaras with Swarovski crystals, this beautiful accessory has an irresistible royal charm. Think Kate Middleton’s wedding and her dazzling diamond tiara borrowed from the Queen! We also love floral designs such as the Edwardian style 45-carat garland diamond tiara worn by Lady Mary in popular British series 'Downton Abbey'. 

Even though a classical tiara is a fabulous accessory for princess-like brides wearing flamboyant white ball gowns, modern designs can be worn with relaxed outfits, such as bohemian style dresses. It is important to match the tiara with the style of your dress, hairdo and the shape of your face. And remember that you will be wearing it all day, so choose a piece that fits perfectly. 


Floral Crowns 

Floral crowns are a huge trend this year and they are perfect for spring or summer weddings. This cool accessory made from fresh blooms is suitable for vintage and rustic themed weddings, as well as beach parties. From oversized blossoms to chains of daisies, flower wreaths are very natural and romantic. Depending on the choice of flowers, you can wear them with straight or wavy hair, neatly styled buns and chignons, or even braids. Our favourite styling is the combination of a colourful floral wreath made from a range of wildflowers, romantic curls and a strapless wedding gown. 

This is a great accessory for nature inspired weddings and you can use anything from white or pink roses to bright-coloured flowers combined with decorative plants. Just make sure that the crown matches your bridal bouquet! Flower crown will look great with an elegant lace gown, simple chiffon dress, or even with a casual boho style beach wedding outfit, as seen at Oscar de la Renta's spring/summer 2015 bridal show.


Head Bands 

Head bands are very popular at modern weddings and we have seen plenty of gorgeous designs at Bridal Fashion Week this year. We love Jenny Packham’s head bands embellished with crystals and worn with long, textured hair gathered in low ponytails, but there were also some amazing bejewelled headpieces at Monique Lhullier, Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera spring/summer 2015 bridal shows. 

Head bands can be worn with or without veils and they can be made out of any material from satin or lace to crystals and pearls. Combination of old lace, beads and feathers is fabulous for weddings inspired by the roaring twenties, while crystals are great for both modern and traditional brides. If you want something a little different, try sixties inspired satin headband with a big bow and match it with a high bun, or re-embroidered lace for chic vintage look. 


Scattered Flowers 

Scattered flowers are very delicate and romantic, and they are the perfect match for long, wavy hair. This is a very nice decoration for modern hair styles with multiple braids and knots and we spotted this look at Marchesa spring/summer 2015 bridal collection. White floral garlands were intertwined with hair creating sophisticated but relaxed look paired with soft, natural make-up. You can also use single fresh blooms or pin flowers made from crystals, satin and pearls to create unique hair style.
