Silver or gold jewellery?

What type of bridal hair accessories?
With so many stunning hair accessories available for brides, how do you know exactly what type of hair accessory to choose? Here is a basic rundown of your options:
- Crown & Tiara– You can wear these alone or with a veil, headbands and tiaras can work great with any style, including hair down, half up or all up. Choose a dainty understated look for a more traditional style or a glamorous look if you’re dreaming of a fairytale wedding.
- Hair Combs– Hair combs vary in size and shape, and look stunning in hair that has been styled in an updo. If you are wearing a veil this could be kept on a separate comb, allowing it to be removed after the ceremony. Hair combs are by far the most popular choice among brides.
- Hair Vines– Perfect for a romantic or boho chic look, hair vines can be bent and manipulated into different shapes to accent any hairstyle. Twist a hair vine in the back of a soft braided updo, around a bridal bun, on the top of your head like a headband.
- Hair Pins– Best in an updo or half up half down hairstyle, Hair pins are more understated and can be worn towards the back of the head, which is great for brides who wear stand out jewelry. If you’d prefer something simple and subtle that will help keep your hair in place, consider this option.
