With the current trend for retro and understated glamour, many brides are eschewing large veils and trains for ornate wedding headpieces and decorative vintage tiaras, combined with less fussy gowns to give an overall sense of chic elegance. These statement pieces against a simple, classic gown can give a touch of class and glamour to the occasion without breaking the bank.
Something such as this ‘Anna’ Ivory French Lace Wedding Tiara is set with Swarovski Crystal, Ivory Pearl and Diamante and is pretty and delicate, making it a perfect choice for an understated, yet beautiful headpiece. Retailing at around £163, it could be worn again for smart occasions.
For more of a 1920’s feel, this ‘Ava’ Swarovski Crystal Wedding Tiara has a gorgeous vintage brooch style crystal decoration, fixed to a triple wound headband. Again, the emphasis is on a classic silhouette and its appeal is in its effortless chic. Another piece that could be worn again, this retails at around £190.
The ‘Heidi’ Ivory Silk Organza Flower Wedding Hair Comb is subtlety personified and is ideal for the bride who wants to keep things sweet and simplistic. This can be worn at the side or back of the head and I feel it exudes rustic charm. Retailing around £76.
Finally, for a more gothic glamour, this ‘Naomi Swarovski Crystal AB Wedding Tiara’ has the hallmarks of a truly elegant and uncomplicated piece. Neat, stylish and retailing at £58, this crystal piece is ideal for the bride who wishes to keep things simple but undoubtedly stylish.
