Bridal Headpiece Inspiration
Did you see the season finale of "Girls" last Sunday? If you missed
it, there was some serious bridal inspiration, including one awesome
floral headpiece (check out a screen shot of it, left).
Jemima Kirke's character, Jessa, isn't the only recent bride who
opted for a headpiece. Two weekends ago, Camilla Alves exchanged 'I
Dos' with now-husband Matthew McConaughey wearing a diamond strand
draped in front of her veil. And who could forget Kim Kardashian's
bejeweled forehead accessory at her $10 million nuptials?
It seems bridal headgear of the non-tiara variety is the newest
trend, and I for one couldn't be more excited. The piece can be
paired with almost any hairstyle -- both up and down 'dos. Plus,
there are tons of styles, from classic bohemian wreaths to sweet
embellished lace headbands. Not sure which one fits your wedding
theme? I've rounded up the most fabulous trends from Pinterest -- so
you can decide if the look is right for you.
A classic romantic wedding accessory, floral headpieces were
extremely popular during Jane Austen's era (and really, is there a
more romantic period?). The bohemian wreath can be created with
flowers, twigs, and even berries. If you don't want to wear a veil
this accessory can be a great alternative.
Ready for an ultra feminine headpiece? Try donning a lace or
tulle-embroidered headband with an elegant design of rhinestones and
beads. The lovely accessory adds just a dash of subtle sparkle.
Traditional Indian Headpiece:
The jeweled bridal headpiece has been featured in traditional Indian
weddings for centuries. An elaborate piece of jewelry is pinned into
the hair, often draped across the forehead, and paired with a
matching set of earrings or a matching statement necklace.
Many brides (including Kardashian and Alves) are attaching a string
of diamonds, rhinestones, or crystals to the front of their veil.
The effect has a modernized tiara vibe without being too princess-y
or over-the-top. I mean, who doesn't love some extra bling?
