When looking into accessories for their big day, brides often rely on an elevated version of their day-to-day style – as well as the design of their gown – as their guide. Jewelry pieces like necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are not essential, but they can bring a regality and refinement to your look as you float down the aisle toward your beloved. All brides will have differing opinions on how much or how little “bling” is ideal for their wedding, but one piece that may be glazed over – albeit accidentally – is the headpiece or hair accessory. 

Clips and combs embellished with stunning crystals, pearls, and other gems are an opulent feature to include in your bridal ensemble. You can match particular stones to those found on your gown or other accessories, or mix and match with other coordinating gems in order to create texture in your look. These trinkets can range from miniature to grand, and their inclusion in your ‘do will surely get your guests talking about your “statement piece.”
