Wedding Hair Accessories to Match Your Wedding Gown and Jewelry

Will you wear it loose, in curls, in a princess style or will you have a stylist create an updo or French roll? Will you need a hairpiece or extension to get the look you want? How will you accessorize your hairdo? Do you need pearls, rhinestones, decorated combs, hairpins or a wedding tiara? Are you going with a veil or just a hairdo with a little sparkle? If you have decided upon a veil, will you choose a traditional bridal veil or opt for a vintage cage design? These are all questions you may not be able to answer until you’ve seen a few hairstyles and know what accessories you can choose to accent them.

Choosing Hairstyles & Wedding Hair Accessory Designs

Cheap wedding hair accessories that look elegant come in a variety of options like barrettes, hairpins with crystal accents, pearl tiaras, adorned headbands, combs with flowers, feathers or rhinestone embellishments and a variety of combinations of all these items.

One of the simplest ways to accent a hairstyle is with hairpins that have long stems and can be placed in almost style of upswept hairstyle for a bit of sparkle. They are usually sold in sets and start at about $22. They can be used in conjunction with a veil and can be added to the hair even if you plan to wear a bridal tiara.

One beautiful hairstyle that can be accented with crystal or pearl wedding hair accessories like adorned hairpins, is the large bun that is spread in an open floral design or loose woven braid. It’s simple and chic, can incorporate a bridal veil at the back, and can be formed from your own hair or enhanced with a hairpiece even if you have short hair. The veil can be attached just under the bun or you can choose to forgo a veil and accent with larger wedding earrings that match the design of the decorative hairpins.

Even if you’re not sure what your stylist will recommend, you can take her/him a few of these very affordable bridal hair accessories and play with their placement to see what suits you best. Remember: a pre-wedding day consultation with your stylist is an absolute MUST. You won’t have enough time to play with hairstyles on the wedding day and you don’t want a hairdo surprise! Usually stylists offer bridal hairdo packages that include a consultation for no extra charge.

The ones with pearls and crystal are about $38 for a set of two, the rhinestone flower hairpins are about $30 for a set of 12, and Swarovski crystal florets are just under $22 for a set of two.

Many designs are replicas of vintage wedding hair accessories, with darker silver-tone settings around crystals and pearls for an aged feel. You can also choose rich yellow gold in either antique or bright tones to match whatever jewelry you have selected.

There’s one unique hairpin that has a vintage air, and that’s the Roxanne Gold Hairpin, with a large cluster of Swarovski crystals and rhinestones in an assortment of cuts, all on a pin that can be placed into almost any hairstyle. It’s so elegant it may be all you need, replacing a tiara or headband or other decorative combs. It’s set in gold and matches almost any bridal ensemble, but especially a champagne or ivory gown, worn with gold bridal jewelry. Vintage wedding hair accessories with this much detail and sparkle can be very expensive, but at USA Bride Weddings, this piece costs under $50. It may well be the only hair accessory you need to complete your vintage look.

Another way to achieve a vintage look is to use small pave hair pins or pearls to accent a ‘60s upswept hairstyle with large rolled curls that fold under in elegant waves. With just a dash of sparkle or pearl accent, you may go without a veil, or add a small tulle netting for a visor or birdcage affect over your eyes. The small pave pins are very reasonably priced since they come in sets of 12 for just $39.95. The delicate pearl versions are $28.95 for a set of 6. Take a set of these pearl wedding hair accessories to your stylist along with a picture of the hairdo and see what personalized creation you two can up with.

Some of the best bridal hairstyle designs are very simple. Remember to choose a design that will accentuate your best facial features. If you tend to have a rounder shaped face, have your hair pulled away from the sides and piled on top to create height and form a crown. For long slender faces, have curls cascading around your face to add a bit of width.

A bridal tiara can accent both low and high styles since they can be worn high on the crown or low like a headband. The position of the tiara will depend on the hairdo and on your face shape. Choose your bridal hair accessory based on YOUR features and not on the design that looks fabulous on the model in a magazine picture. Use the images as guides to try styles and come up with the one that brings out the best in YOU.

There are some unique alternatives to tiaras, crystal or rhinestone sparkle or even pearls, and that is using wedding hair accessories flowers, be they natural or silk, set onto combs or pins or even headbands. Some floral styles may have a touch of sparkle or pearl, but are primarily silk petals and leaves, sometimes accented with feathers. Usually when using flowers, the hairstyle will be asymmetrical, with only one side of the hair having the floral accessories. A feather comb may be placed at the lower back of an upswept hairstyle, or may be worn at the right or left side of the face. Sometimes a feathery or floral accessory will be used to attach a visor style veil for a retro look.

If you wish to wear your hair loose, or pulled into a curled princess style, a floral or feather comb can be added to accent the curls or loose hair. Using floral and feather bridal hair accessories is not just for high piled or upswept styles, however, it can be more difficult to keep the pieces in place if your hair is not naturally thick. One solution is to add a small hairpiece or some extensions and place the flowers or feathers where the extension has been added. This gives more body to your own natural hair and provides a means to hold the decoration securely in place.

You can also mix natural flowers, that match your bouquet, with the silk bridal hair accessories flowers, but if you choose to do so, use small rosebuds or flowers that are not too heavy. Just a few green leaves or bridal fern will add life to a silk accessory and yet not make it appear like you have a garden on your head.

A single orchid bridal comb will cost just under $50, but there are some designs in the $30 to $40 price range. Feather and flower combinations start at about $35 and go up to $99. If you’re not going to add a veil, cheap wedding hair accessories like the ones we suggest through USA Bride Weddings can help you to accent your ensemble within a very tight budget.

If you wish to add a veil, there’s good news. USA Bride Weddings also carried a selection of bridal veil styles that are extremely affordable, starting at just $39.95 for a birdcage veil design that can be worn alone or enhanced with designer bridal hair accessories like the ones mentioned above.

You can also select from traditional bridal veil styles that start at around $45. Accent a simple cut edge veil with crystal or pearl bridal hair accessories and create your own design around your hairstyle using a tiara or a comb or a few pins.

There’s yet another alternative to all the wedding day hair accessories we’ve mentioned so far, and that is a simple ribbon headband that can be tied around a bun, worn in place of a tiara, woven through a braid, placed on the front part of an updo, or used to hold back curls in loose hairstyles or princess designs. They start at just under $50 and go up to about $90 for ribbons embellished with silver and vintage rhinestones.

One of the most delicate bridal hair accessories you can select is the sheer tulle or organza headband with detailed beaded accents sewn onto the wide strip of sheer fabric.

For under $50 you get the sheer ribbon that has a segment 12.5 inches long that’s completely decorated with clear rhinestones and seed pearls, and two 16 inch lengths of ribbon to tie under, or through, your hair. The tips of the ribbons are also decorated with a seed bead pearl motif.

The simplest way to wear the ribbon bridal hair accessory is similar to how you might wear a headband. Or wear it to enhance a braided twist, or wrap it around a spiral bun, or use as a band to adorn a bridal hat.

The ribbon headband with pearl beads or the ribbon rhinestone vintage design are both ideal to accent loose hairstyles for beach weddings or outdoor ceremonies that are less formal.
