Quite often when I speak to brides they are struggling with 'bridal overwhelm.' You know that feeling where there is so much choice, so many beautiful styles, and you can't decide which one to go for? Have a look at my top 3 questions to ask yourself when choosing your bridal accessories.
1. What is my dress like?
If your dress is simple or lightly embellished then you are free to go for a more statement headpiece. If you dress is more heavily embellished then a more delicate bridal headpiece may help to complement it rather than overshadow it. Having said that, your wedding day is unlike any other day, and many brides choose to go all out on details and sparkle from head to toe! I always recommend taking a major cue from your dress and the overall style of your day.
2. What feels most like me?
You want to be best version of yourself on your wedding day. You need to be comfortable, yet feel the most beautiful you have ever felt. I believe there’s an inner princess in all of us, (which doesn’t necessarily mean a ‘princess-style’ wedding!) but being made to ‘feel’ like a princess.
When I took my own journey down the aisle I arrived and stood beside the man who was about to become my husband and he whispered “Buongiorno Principessa” (“Hello my princess”) as seen in one of our favourite films ‘A Beautiful Life’. I can honestly say I did feel so special on my wedding day, and so me! Whether you opt for something small and delicate or more lavish and statement, be the bride that you want to be.
3. Should I follow the latest trend?
There are always trends in bridal. Be inspired by them, but don’t feel you have to go with the latest or most modern look, if you’re more of a classic bride at heart. Some brides feel best in a hair vine, others can’t wait to try on a headband or crown and have pictured themselves in a particular style of bridal headpiece for years. If you're a lover of delicate and intricate detail you may prefer the lighter look of a hair comb or hairpins.
It really is all about you, your style, your wedding, your dress, your bridal headpiece, so wear what makes you feel happy and beautiful!
