Lace Bridal Hair Accessories

Lace Bridal Hair Accessories

Browse the latest bridal trend for wedding hair accessories…lace, lace and more lace! Choose from textured, embellished, floral, mesh and embroidered lace to add a touch of texture to your overall look! The latest 2015 lace and bridal combs are crafted using a feminine mix of layers of lace with fabric florettes and then accented with scattering of crystals and pearls or pearl or crystal centres for the flowers. The layers add depth to the accessory and the mix of fabrics and materials makes each headpiece unique and intricate in its own way.

Lace bridal hair accessories are very different to the style of headpiece available until recently. These are not silver or gold or crystal – they are mainly cream, ivory or white so the overall tones added to your outfit will be very different. The colouring of this style of hair piece should be chosen to complement the specific colour of your gown but the overall image created will be extremely feminine and romantic in nature. The combs and headbands are perfect to add the finishing touches to a Boho, Vintage or very delicate style of wedding gown – particularly any dress with similar lace appliques, motifs or fabric embellishment for a fully co-ordinated look.

The lace hair accessories are now in stock and a wide range is available for 2015 brides to start researching their wedding accessories!

Three ways to Style a Bridal Headband

Three ways to Style a Bridal Headband

Three ways to Style a Bridal Headband

Bridal Headbands may have been replaced by more fluid, forehead band designs and fabric hairpieces…but the modern bride still finds unique ways of wearing a headband to suit her individual bridal look! The traditional ways of wearing a headband have been replaced with novel ideas for styling this versatile hair accessory to complement modern wedding gowns and even more modern bridal hairstyles!

Firstly, the fabric style or vintage design bridal headband looks simply perfect worn with a birdcage or traditional veil. Add the birdcage to soften the overall look and add a vintage finishing touch; wear with a traditional ceremonial veil to create two different looks – one with the veil for the ceremony to add interest and then remove the veil for the evening reception for a sparkly headpiece to dance the night away!

Secondly, the bridal headbands of 2015 are styled with a Deco influence – they are made using lightweight materials and the detail is often crafted with beads or fabric so that the piece can be worn across the forehead in a 1920s inspired look. Forehead adornment is extremely popular to create a hint of vintage and complement a vintage wedding gown perfectly!

Thirdly, the bridal headband can be worn in the same way as a traditional tiara for a completely contemporary bridal look! Style the headband with a sleek, sophisticated updo or half up and down hairstyle to really enhance the detail in the piece. Whether you have chosen a pearl and crystal or just crystal design – the motifs incorporated in it be they vine, leaf, floral or geometric will look stunning against backcombed hair!

For brides who considered the bridal headbands an accessory of the past….get creative and research the right style of bridal headband to create an utterly contemporary finishing touch for your special day.

Wedding Shoes Infographic: Should I wear High Heels on my Wedding Day

Infographic: Should I wear high heels on my wedding day?

Infographic: Should I wear high heels on my wedding day?

For brides still trying to make that all important decision whether they should wear high heels on their wedding day…this useful wedding shoes infographic will help brides choose the right style of bridal footwear for their big day!

Brides who choose the high heel option have the choice of cushioned platforms, stilettos or a highly sought after mid-height heel about 7.5-8.5cm high. The platforms offer stability for brides who need very high heels due to being petite, having a very tall groom or just a penchant for high heel footwear. Stilettos are the perfect choice for that hint of elegance and a less chunkier look than platforms. The mid-height heel option is becoming the choice for bridal footwear designers everywhere as it offers a substantial heel with a comfortable feeling for wearing the entire day.

If high heels are not the bride’s first choice, the kitten heel has become increasingly popular as the practical option for wedding shoes – particularly styles with vintage inspiration. Flats and mini-wedges are also becoming more easily available on the market as footwear designers recognise that they simply cannot coax some brides to wear heels – especially not on their wedding day! The retro-inspired block heel is an underrated shoe shape which some brides may not have even considered until they see some of the contemporary designs available with this style of heel – whether short or high, the block heel offers brides who simply cannot wear heels the option of added height without any fears of feeling unstable or compromising on comfort.

The useful infographic will shortly be available to download directly from the Crystal Bridal website – we hope it provides an easy to follow resource for brides and help them to choose the best bridal shoe style. Please feel free to share this valuable resource on your Blog, Facebook or Twitter feeds!

Three Ways to wear Bridal Flowers in your Hair

Three Ways to wear Bridal Flowers in your Hair

Three Ways to wear Bridal Flowers in your Hair

Brides who adore flowers for their bridal hair…how about some fantastic new ideas to wear flowers in your hair?…

One of the top bridal hair flower ideas is a simple chiffon or fabric hair flower on a clip or slide – Lilybella offer some fantastic designs from a silk florette with pearl or crystal centre and the latest vibrant pink double flower clip ‘Florence’ which looks simply stunning as a burst of colour against a pale ivory gown – particularly vintage and unusual in style for the bride who wants to be different!

Secondly, team any flower headpiece or even fresh flowers with a birdcage for an ultra romantic look…the birdcage netting adds femininity and a vintage touch whilst the flowers add interest and a burst of colour if you opt for pink or vibrant red tones.

Third on the list of hair flower ideas is a flower motif brooch or clip. This less traditional method of adding a floral touch to your bridal look means you can choose a versatile piece – perhaps even your ‘Something Borrowed’ as a hair brooch from your mother or grandmother. Any crystal or crystal and pearl brooch can be attached to the hair using slides and as long as it is relatively lightweight offers a unique touch for your hair accessory. Similarly, a headband with a large floral design will also create a romantic look with a slightly contemporary edge!

Brides…don’t forget to experiment with different types of hair accessories to achieve your desired look.
