Hair Accessories

Particularly if you aren't wearing any other bold accessories, a headpiece can be a gorgeous alternative to a veil. Above, this boho wedding dress is complemented perfectly with a headband full of sparkly flowers.

Below, Art Deco brides will love this medallion headpiece. Pair it with a pretty pair of earrings and you are good to go!

Tuck an elegant crystal hair comb into a simple updo for an easy vintage style (below).  Wear with a pair of studs and a dainty bracelet to glisten just the right amount.

Want your hair in long waves?  This gleaming hair clip with crystals and pearls (below) is small, but also bold enough that it can be your statement accessory.

Just because you want a veil doesn't mean you have to be left out of the sparkly fun. This blusher veil below features tiny crystals dotted throughout. It's a fantastic choice for retro brides wanting a sweet accessory.

Brides with gold in their color palette might prefer to wear a shiny metallic accessory rather than something with crystals. This crown below features dozens of tiny golden leaves.
