Bridal headpieces are an emerging trend that shows just how influential other cultures and styles can be on western wedding trends. These beautiful headpieces are often elegant pieces of metal and chains with gems on it that go around the head and across the forehead. They are stunning wedding accessories that are appearing more and more in bridal photos. In fact, Kim Kardashian is just one famous bride who looked simply breathtaking when she wore her simple wedding headpiece in her wedding to Kris Humphries back in 2011.
Choosing The Right Bridal Headpiece
Bridal headpieces will generally cost you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on the type of material, quality of the gem, and intricacy of the design. Because your wedding is such an important day, and the bridal headpiece will obviously be a very prominent and visible part of your wedding attire, it is essential that you choose the right one.
Style – there are many different styles for headpieces. Some are simple elegant pieces of metal that drape across the forehead like Kim Kardashian wore, while others are large and ornate pieces of head jewelry that encompass the entire forehead and top of the head. Additionally you need to consider whether you want a bohemian style, a glamorous style, or something more vintage. Coordinate the wedding headpiece with your dress for a cohesive look!
Materials – the materials used will play a massive role in not only how much the headpiece will cost, but also how it will look in the photo. If you’re going to have gems in your headpiece you need to be especially careful on which headpiece you choose. Cheap rhinestones show up often as dark and unattractive in photos, while higher quality Swarovski crystals and diamante show up brilliantly in photos.

Veil – whether or not you’re going to have a veil along with your bridal headpiece will make a huge difference. You cannot wear a larger headpiece with a veil, especially one that encompass the back part of your head since the clasp for the veil will be impeded by the headpiece. Make sure you ensure that both your headpiece and veil work together cohesively and try them both on before purchasing!
