Not every modern bride wants to wear a traditional long veil, and neither do they have to. There are so many options out there for bridal hair accessories today, from the traditional veils or statement veils with modern twists, on trend vintage inspired tiaras, golden flora crowns, crystal or pearl encrusted vines, handmade silk flowers through to the smallest of hairpins and feather clips. The widest selection of Bridal Accessories can be found on Etsy. There are so many options in fact that if you do a search for Bridal Fascinator you’ll find the results are overwhelming - from cheap to mega opulent and expensive, all handmade by artisans around the world...
For this article I have selected items from SMALL Independent sellers on Etsy (plus a couple Amazon, and others). I've hunted out the items that you won't often see coming up in search results, because the seller lists only a few unique items and are drowned by the overwhelming volume in searches, or because they haven't done something else (like PAY to be at the top of search results, or added a shop update in last month.....!). Please support small artists, as they give you love and attention, and the art they make for you is as important to them, as it is to you. I'm giving them a shout out, not high volume sellers to whom you are just "Another". I constantly update, add, remove items each season.
How you decide to wear your hair, and your bridal headpiece is one of the most important elements to consider for your wedding. Remember it will be in every picture of you. Unless you don't plan having any pictures of your head in your wedding album or wall, then it will be there, so you need to be sure you've chosen the one you'll love looking at for ever more. If you make a mistake ordering poor chair decorations, table centre pieces or other elements of the wedding that turn out less than your fairy-tale dream, then it would be a shame, but you won't be reminded everyday for ever more. Your hair and headpiece will be there always in every picture of you.The Hatista
