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.

3. Turban

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.
