We’ll take the lot.

When it comes to bridal fashion, discussions around dresses and veils tend to dominate. Having said that, selecting the perfect hairpiece for your big day can really bring the whole ensemble together, and, from tiaras to headbands to flower crowns, the world is truly your oyster.

If you are tying the knot soon – or know someone who is – then here are eight unique headpieces to wear on the day.

1. Quinn Headband

€125, Folkster

For a bride who doesn’t want to go down the traditional veil route, this super delicate headband offers a happy medium.

2. The Tiggy

€130, Alice May Bridal

The Tiggy comes in two colours – silver and blush – and it’s super versatile. Brides can wear it as it is, or attach a veil to it.

3. Crystal Hair Vine

€140, Sharon Hoey

Made from gold wire, this piece can be worn like a headband at the front of the head, or as a vine wrapped around a bun at the back.

4. Statement Plisse Bow

€15, boohoo

They say there’s no beating a classic, and this is certainly true of this statement bow from boohoo, which will, quite literally, tie your whole look together. Simple elegance.

5. Pearl Headband

€39, Coast

If you can’t embrace your inner Blair Waldorf on your wedding day then when can you? This headband from Coast is ideal for walking down the aisle, particularly if you’re opting for an up-do.

6. Ivory and Co Marielle Gold Crystal Embellished Bridal Headband

€122.99, Lace and Favour

If you’re opting for an Art Deco theme for your wedding, then this gold bridal headband is bound to awaken the revelatory spirit of the 1920s. This particular headband features intricate crystal patterns, and is also available in silver.

7. Etoile Hairpins

€55, Folkster

If you fancy bringing the glamour in a more subtle way, then a set of hairpins may be your best bet. These stars from Folkster come in a set of three, and they bring some sparkle without completely dominating the look.

8. Flower Crowns

Available from Every Blooming Thing, Limerick

In a departure from your traditional gold and silver embellishments, it would be remiss of us to fail to include a flower crown option on the list, particularly when they can be custom-made with fresh flowers.
