You heard it here first: Bridal headbands are the hottest new wedding accessory. Why? Not only do they feel fresh and modern, but they’re a bridal accessory that you can actually wear again. Plus, these face-framing pieces are a budget-friendly way to elevate your bridal ensemble while expressing your personal style–win, win!

Like many wedding accessories, bridal headbands come in a wide range of styles to suit all types of wedding dresses and aesthetics. Looking for something timeless? Go for a classic white headband made from grosgrain or lace. For something more statement-making, opt for a colorful piece in the perfect “something blue” hue. And for brides who love a bit of sparkle, crystal-lined headbands are glamorous for a black-tie wedding and always fitting for the after-party
