DON'T Forget That Size Counts
Thin little headbands don’t really cut it – this trend is all about thick, chunky styles. We suggest you put all thoughts of dainty little head pieces firmly out of mind.
DON'T Believe Only Certain Dresses Will Work With The Look
You might feel more comfortable in a really ornate, busy headband if your dress is a little simpler, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look great with a more statement gown, too. Look to influencer Bettina Looney’s bridal look for proof.
DO Take Your Venue Into Consideration
Much like with the dress, the space you’re getting married in should somewhat dictate the style of headband – anything heavily pearl or jewel encrusted may feel a little over the top in a rustic countryside setting.
DO Shop Around
There are some amazing milliners creating beautiful pieces, but adding a headband can be an affordable way to inject something extra into your bridal look. We suggest you head straight to Etsy.
DO Keep Your Hair Simple
Either a slicked-back bun or loose, tousled waves are best. Anything else and it might start to look a little top-heavy.
DON'T Forget To Give It A Test Run First
Those with experience will know headbands can get uncomfortable as the day goes on. As you would with wedding shoes, try wearing it in around the house first. If it starts to hurt, consider taking it to a milliner – they can help insert cushioning for added comfort.
