I used to think of headbands as a hair accessory made for middle school girls or something practical to hold my hair out of my face during a workout. Then I first saw the adornments feature in mywedding The Magazine and realized that there is so much more to these accessories than I could have ever imagined. From simple and delicate to unique and bold, these bridal headbands are the perfect accessory to complement any hairstyle on your wedding day.
The best thing about wearing a headband on your wedding day is all the different hairstyles that you can wear it with. They can be infused into your curly haired updo like the delicate lace piece above or simply enhance a boho chic bun (bottom, left). Whichever style you choose, make sure that the beading or design flows well with your dress and other accessories. The braided beauty (below, right) is a perfect example that you don't have to choose between a veil and a headband - you can have both!
If you are a vintage bride and haven't thought of the perfect accessory to complete your look, consider a headband! With elegant gold details like the one above, you will be sure to glow when you walk down the aisle. Art Deco details like the two headbands below have become very popular for brides during the last year. The one on the bottom left is great for brides with short hair that want to add a little extra glam to their look and the one to the bottom right is a more modern twist on the classic ballerina bun. Both exude a sophisticated style while maintaining a unique look.
Go simple and natural with the thin, floral headband above. These look fabulous at spring weddings and definitely give off a garden-esque vibe. See more inspiration for floral bridal crowns here.
For something you can wear again and again, go with a faux floral or feather headband (above). These choices in accessories make a bold statement and show off your unique bridal style that will be sure to turn heads.
Speaking of turning heads, I might have saved the best for last. This delightful gold headband below is truly stunning when paired with a long elegant veil. It takes the look of a modern bride to a whole new level.
I hope that these bridal headbands have changed your mind about the hair accessory as much as they've changed mind. Let us know which one is your favorite in the comments below!
