The best thing about a hair accessory is that it truly ties your bridal look together, especially if you opt for simple jewelry and shoes that won’t be seen from under your dress. Whether you’re a bohemian, modern, or traditional bride, hair accessories are a category not to be overlooked, they’re basically jewelry for your hair—what’s not to love about that?

For classic brides, a headband, comb, or tiara with pearls is timeless and chic and always pairs nicely with veils of all lengths. For bohemian brides craving something other than a flower crown, look to hairpins, hair vines, or clips with blossoms, branch motifs, or leaves. A hairpiece with rhinestones or feathers is perfect for the glamorous bride while sleek and sculptural pieces in gold or silver suits ultra-modern and minimalist tastes.
