Six types of bridal headwear
19 Sep 2017
If you're thinking about bridal headwear but are unsure what type will suit your style, take a look at these options
1. Fascinator or hatinator
Fascinators featuring feathers, pearls and rhinestones are a quick and effective way to add interest to the overall bridal look. Similarly, hatinators - a fusion of a hat and fascinator - are perfectly suited to a vintage bride. Fascinators and hatinators can look particularly bridal when paired with a birdcage veil.
2. Flower crown or garland
Big and bold or soft and subtle floral headwear continues to set the bridal world alight. Matching the colour scheme and flowers featured in the bouquet, florals offer a beautifully bohemian feel. Take a look at these 10 flower crown designs for further inspiration.

Fashion forward brides looking to incorporate a catwalk-worthy finish should consider a statement turban. Available in various styles, bridal white might seem an obvious colour choice but a vibrant design will also turn heads - such as this emerald turban from Violet & Wren.
4. Headpiece or hairpiece
Vast in style and choice, embellished hairpieces, dazzling hair jewellery and diamante encrusted headpieces offer added sparkle. From understated slides to bejewelled bands, a headpiece or hairpiece can inject personality and reflect your bridal style.
Brides looking for the fairytale finish need look no further than a simple yet stunning tiara. Regal and refined, a tiara offers the perfect amount of princess glamour.
