Fascinators have become a popular alternative to the classic wedding veil. Like their traditional headpiece counterpart they come in an array of shapes, sizes, colours and cuts to suit any bridal hair-do or face shape. There is nothing wrong with a delicately cascading layer of tulle, but if you’re looking for a headpiece with a twist, or even something special to change into for more of a party look in the evening, then fascinators and headbands are a great idea!
The Hat Collective have a quirky range of fascinators to add that special something to your bridal look. The Feather Flowers Fascinator will make heads turn with its striking use of texture and elegant teardrop shape. Their Vintage Lace Headpiece would be the piece de resistance for a chic vintage bride, adding a touch of twenties-style glamour to your look.
For the contemporary bride, make a statement with the Pleated Sinamay Hat – it is a work of art! Other fabulous statement hairpieces include the Bridal Butterfly Comb, the Silk Rose and Veiling Cocktail Hat and the Wedding Bow Veil.
Combs and headbands can help you achieve that polished look, and they work well with veils too. Gillian Million has a stunning collection of bespoke bridal headpieces. I love the delicate Madrid Head Wrap as it is something I haven’t really seen before. The Crystal Leaf Comb is exquisite and made from real Swarovski crystals. It is also versatile, lending itself beautifully to a boho or an art deco bridal look. The Art Deco Headpiece, also by Queens and Bowl, is a striking, elegant and fantastically unusual bridal headpiece.
Finally, we always encourage you to add a touch of DIY to your wedding styling where you can. Hats on Heads offer you the unique opportunity to make your own tres chic fascinator with their special Fascinator Hat Making Kit. Now, that’s what I call DIY and a personal touch!
