From the catwalk to 'I do!'

A key trend I’ve noticed from the Spring 2016 fashion weeks is a renewed love affair with hair accessories. But they’re not just for your everyday looks, they also make for the perfect bridal styles.

Of course, floral accessories are always a go-to when it comes to classic bridal styles. From quirky, boho brides who love undone floral crowns, to brides who love colour and crave explosive floral designs or just a single bloom, flowers are a brilliant way to highlight anything from a chignon to long and loose waves.

Ribbons and Bows:

It’s been a while since we’ve worn ribbons in our hair, but designers such as Lanvin and Dior have suddenly made them look grown up, and chic! A satin or grosgrain bow is a great look for brides who don’t want to follow the floral trend, but need something to keep their hair up, or swept back. A ribbon is also a great complement for bridal gowns that feature ribbon-like belts, and can be worn in any colour. While black and navy are more traditional tones, the colours I love are warm salmon pinks and neutral nudes;so pretty amongst wavy styles or tied up into updos.

Bling’s the Thing:

Some brides won’t even look at a hair accessory unless it’s embellished with stones that sparkle. For the bling-loving bride you could suggest a full-on bridal crown, emblazoned with Swarovski crystals, or you can suggest metal crowns that are twisted into nature-inspired shapes, such as leaves, twigs and flowers. These accessories can be a little heavier to wear, so make sure your bride gets used to the feeling of a crown on her head.
