Veils may be seen as unnecessary, and flower crowns are certainly the hair trend du jour, but the accessory that really completes a bridal ensemble is a great headpiece. Whether a pair of pins, a large clip for side sweeping your hair, a regal maang tikka draped onto the forehead, or a delicate headband to add a crown of sparkle, a headpiece is perfect for any bride. Headpieces are almost like bridal gowns that way – no matter what your style is, there will be one that expertly fits your personality: Pearls for the vintage-lovers, loads of crystal for glam brides, worn alone for the modern woman, or paired with a veil for classic ladies – the possibilities are endless.
