Your special day fast approaching, every fashion detail counts. Jewellery and hair accessories are a fun thing to think about through the duration of the wedding planning. You may have put together a Pinterest board or collated a bunch of photos or perhaps it is something that has been completely overlooked. One thing is for sure when it comes to the final decision making it is often one of the tougher decisions to make.
Things to consider when deciding on hair accessories for your fabulous ‘Bride Tribe’:
- What dress design are they wearing?
- What hair colour and hair length do your girls have?
- Do you have a theme that you’re trying to incorporate?
- Are you wanting all the girls to accessories the same and how are they wearing their hair?
A decision on a signature look for those you’ve chosen to join you in your walk down the aisle may be complicated. What dresses will they wear? Will they be comfortable? Will they like how they look? While finding coordinating dresses comes with its own set of challenges then, what about their hair? Every woman has varying locks and different tastes when it comes to hairstyles. At the end of the day, you want your bridesmaids to be comfortable and confident. Then they can do their job attending to you and making the day enjoyable for all.
A great option for any women with any hair type or length is a bridesmaid headband. It is incredibly versatile and can be used to accentuate virtually any hairstyle. Choose from crystals, pearls, hand painted leaves, flowers, and many more eye-catching options to keep your bridesmaids feeling beautiful and confident.
A creative alternative, the bridal headband
Bridesmaids headbands are a creative alternative to a comb or hair pin with endless styles to choose from. So, whether you’re after a vintage look and feel – or just a little art deco, here are some of our favourite bridal headbands.
Some brides like to choose the bridesmaids hair accessories to coordinate with their own but this all comes down to personal choice not necessity.
To create uniqueness to your wedding ceremony you may consider allowing each bridesmaid to choose her own headband. This can be based on a desired colour or style that will flow with the rest of the wedding wardrobe. But, if you prefer the continuity of all your bridesmaids with the same matching headbands, why not allow individual hairstyles. Imagine how beautiful it would look with 4 different hair styles and a stunning matching bridesmaid headband tying them all together, simply WOW!!!
Just between you & me …
I will let you in on a little secret. You can also explore the world of tiaras, hair vines and headpieces to expand your options. Some smaller tiaras, depending on how they sit, can certainly be positioned differently to give the same effect as a bridal headband. Most hair vines depending on length can double as a bridal headband. Most hair vines have either clips on the ends or loops which can have ribbon looped through the ends and act as a tie under the hair. Likewise, some headpieces can be large enough to wrap around the head and pinned or clipped into the hair to give the illusion of a headband.
Different bridal headband styles & how to wear them
With so many types of headbands available likewise there are many different ways to wear them. Wear it the classic way behind your ears and up on your head for an elegant simple look. You can consider wearing your headband closer to your forehead or even across your forehead. Depending on the style of the bridal headband, the theme of the wedding or the style of the hair will also dictate your decision.
Side headbands are incredibly versatile worn easily with any hairstyle, long or short. A good rule of thumb is to place the bridal headband on the side of the head opposite any dress detailing, such as one shoulder dresses, to harmonise the look.
