Special Occasion Headpieces: Tiaras, Fascinators, Headbands, and Others


Wedding headpieces run the gamut from traditional to the glittering, jeweled tiara. As with choosing your veil, consider both your wedding hairstyle and your dress when deciding what type of headpiece you will wear. If you have already purchased your veil, of course, consider it as well. It is a good idea to make the decision with your maid of honor, mother or other close friend so she can give advice on which headpiece looks best with your ensemble.

Choose a headpiece size that is in proportion to your dress and has similar detailing. The best advice is basic advice: first choose your gown; then, choose your accessories to complement it. This section contains headpiece options for you to consider. (Note: Veils are here.)

Your headpiece and wedding gown create a cohesive look.

When choosing your tiara or any bridal accessory consider what will go well with your wedding dress. It should match or otherwise complement the gown. In general, some element of your dress should be reflected in the tiara. Some examples of how to accomplish this:

  • Consider era. Complement a modern design with your up-to-the-minute wedding gown style or a vintage piece with more traditional fashions.
  • Pair a gown with simple lines with headwear that is also streamlined.
  • OR, if you want to draw attention to your hair and its accessories, pair that same simple gown with a more extravagantly designed headpiece.
  • If there are patterns in the detailing on your gown, look for similar detailing in headwear.
  • Match pearls or other hair bling to those in the earrings or necklace. Choose the entire jewelry set to go with the white or ivory in your gown.
