Cathy’s Notes on Wedding Tiaras
Everything that makes you look like a princess is important on that all-important day in your life. Wedding Tiaras are reckoned as a great accessory to give you that princely feel. When you start shopping for your wedding tiaras, you will notice that there is no dearth of options before you and in fact, you can be spoiled with the options. There is also a wide range regarding material like the gold tiaras, crystal tiaras and pearl tiaras and finding one that matches and complements your dress to the last bit is never difficult. However, when you follow the guidelines below, you can be sure that you are choosing the best for the occasion.
The wedding tiara you choose should be the last piece of wedding hair accessories that you shop for. This is because your wedding tiara should blend well with everything else like your wedding dress, shoes etc. The role of the wedding tiara is to enhance the wedding look as a whole. Care should be taken to ensure that the wedding tiara does not overpower your facial features or the wedding dress. Any bridal jewellery that you have chosen for the big day should also be taken into account alongside other hair accessories like wedding hair pins etc. that you have planned to wear.
Remember that your looks on the big day can be significantly impacted by the wedding tiaras. Depending on size and placement it can enhance your looks or do the opposite. As a thumb rule, it is always desirable to choose bridal accessories for your hair as elegant and as simple as possible. Throughout your wedding day, all eyes will be purveying you and it is important that you exude the feel of a stunning beauty and one that can do with very little accessories. Your wedding tiara while enhancing your beauty should not divert the attention from your face. Tall wedding tiaras are best avoided when you have an elongated face. On the other hand, tiara headpieces that can add some height will be a better option. But, if you have an oval face, you can choose nearly any kind of accessory since your face is proportioned well. However, in choosing a tall tiara you may also want to consider the groom’s height since you may want to be somewhat subdued. Brides who have a round face should choose a tiara that can add little height or one with a strong peak. A tall piece is helpful in elongating the round face.
- “Wedding tiaras add glitz to your hair,” says Stephanie from Stephanie Browne jewellery – “Your hair can be of any type, but a wedding tiara chosen appropriately will essentially add glitz to any hairstyle, though care should be taken to ensure that it does not outshine the bride.”
- Try out the chosen wedding tiara before the big day
The wedding tiara you choose should be comfortable on your head and should not be heavy since you will be wearing it on the day. This will also give you an opportunity to make sure that your wedding tiara is not at the centre of attraction, instead of you.
The wedding crown
From your Wedding tiaras, we now move on to the Wedding crown. Wedding crowns are made of vine and flowers and have become a popular trend in wedding accessories particularly for woodland and bohemian weddings. A flower crown is a perfect choice for brides who are not particular about wearing a veil. The three steps described below will help you choose the most appropriate wedding crown for your big day.
Coordinate the wedding season with the flowers you choose
The hair crown is an all-season accessory but like all other wedding flowers, you should focus on seasonal accents and blooms to blend with the climate in which the knot is tied. For example, wildflowers can be a great choice for a summer wedding while a mix of greenery and acorns or even red berries make a good match when the wedding is scheduled during winter.
Choose the right size
You can pick flower crowns in a variety of styles and sizes. The size you choose should be pretty comfortable on you without the feel of something big sitting on your head. The small secret is that the crown should work as an accent to your look than overpowering it.
You already know how important it is to have trial runs with your outfitting. Most brides will have at least 2 or 3 sittings with the beautician/boutique before everything can be packed ready for the big day. You can schedule a visit to the hairstylist too around the same time so that your entire bridal makeover fits in perfectly and the professional you engage can do a good job for the all-important day. Planning these trial runs well ahead of the big day. Ideally, a minimum of two weeks will put you at an advantage in more ways than one. In the first place, you will have the opportunity to change things just in case necessary without much ado. Other members of the family and your friends can also have a look in through a series of photographs that you would take with your mobile phone and express their views to fine tune things before the big day arrives. More importantly, if all your outfitting is ready weeks ahead of the big day, your ability to relax well before your Wedding day is significantly enhanced.
