Did you know that we have a huge selection of bridal hairpieces for you to choose from? That's right! We stock basically every style bridal hair accessory under the sun, from sprays to combs, to side pieces, to headbands, to bridal crowns, we have it all. Bridal headpieces have certainly evolved in the time that I've been here, and while some traditional styles have stayed the same; the color options and styling has absolutely changed with the times.
Historically bridal hairpieces were available in mostly silver, with accents of crystals and pearls, and brides either wore a front tiara/headband, or they wore a small comb in their hair where their veil was put into their hairstyle. Today our bridal hairpieces are available in soft golds, rose gold, silver, and even soft blushes! I see girls wearing side combs, weaving beautiful woven crystal pieces into their hair, going for the more boho styled flower crown, and even going with the traditional bridal tiara. It's safe to say that bridal headpieces are still "in", my friends.
Lately I've been stunned to hear brides mention to me that they can only wear one or the other: a veil, or bridal hairpiece.... What's up with that? I'm not sure when this myth came about, but it's actually more common for brides to wear both a veil & hairpiece, rather than choosing one or the other. I mean... Let's be serious, why wouldn't you want sparkle in your hair once your veil comes out?
Don't be fooled by wedding dress designer photos - they don't make headpieces and veils so most of them don't photograph their models with them. However, we love that Essense of Australia photographs their brides in what the majority of our brides walk down the aisle in: a veil, and a hairpiece.
