Bridal Headwear the 2017 story

Hi Ladies


This years bride is all about her accessories. The resurgence of the 70s hair crown since Coachella hit our insta feed, the most talked about “It” festival of the year. One of this festivals must haves for the music loving muse, and crowning the most talked about heads in the fashion industry. With super models and Victorias Secret Angels carefully incorporating this much loved accessory into their 3 day festival look, our interest is sweetly piqued.

Hair crowns can as simple as beautiful flowers woven together to create a showpiece , daisies, miniature roses with delicate filagree tend to be the most popular and signature look. Choose white, cream or ivory for a softer classic take on the look or opt for a colour if you want to introduce a colourful element to your look. If your thinking of colour opt for one colour per bridal party with perhaps ivory for yourself and purple, pastel pink or yellow for the rest of your party.



this beauty  is a sure favourite….  the “SPRING POSY CROWN IN CREAM” This limited edition crown  has beautiful blooms with a touch of pink and sage at the edge with foliage underneath on an adaptable base. Love is in the the little details as the say, the Tie with satin ribbon ties to various lengths at the back of the head, simple divine.

There is also the exquisite beeded variety of hair crown. Glass needing, pearls and coloured stones  are some of the varieties available. your choice here can be purposeful and match the delicate detailing of your own dress or your bridesmaids. A simple dress can be offset by a signature crown.

Adding some whimsical beauty to your day just look at the “Dimensional” a beaded flower headband, beaded twig detail paired with 3d contemorary flowers, perfect for the vintage or contemporary bride. this little piece can be worn as a hair crown,headdress or hairband and i dare say you might even get away with a veil with this one

Adding a little more structure to your hair crown check out the “Safiya” from this diamond encrusted piece from where the handout marquite stones cut as diamonds and freshwater pearls sit on a 14 C plated band.

Adding a middle eastern influence to our look with the breathtakingly beautiful hair chains originally found in the ancient city of Babylonia( Iraq) about 2500 B.C. Middle eastern designers have dominated our catwalks when it comes to everything bridal with powerful designers from Berta Bridal an Israeli based fashion house who hailed the return the beautiful goddess silhouette and Zahavit Tshuba from the heart of Tel Aviv with her statement Bridal wear with strong 70s influences. The chain has always been a symbol of eternal love, where one circle linked to another circle as a symbol of infinite love and connection.

Stunning varieties are available from where delicate varieties add simple decoration to an elaborate hairstyle or decorative varieties can add sublime beauty to the most simple of hairstyles.

One of my favourites is this simple pearl and diamond piece.

To add more definition to your hair wear check out the “Rosette” a cast boho headpiece from It has an antique charm with its delicate gold plated roses, ready to ship out in approx one week from the USA. The best thing is you will wear this piece to multiple occasions with its easy to match gold charm.

The Addition of fresh flowers to the hair can be as sublime and beautiful as you like, think fresh cream roses worn in an up style or to frame a boho style. Gypsophila otherwise known a s baby breath has feathered quite predominantly this year. Weaved into the hair, added to chignons or worn as flower crowns on the cutest of flower girls. First things first and book a consultation with your florist, as the availability of certain arrangement can vary from season to season.


So get your hair coiffed & Let’s put your crowning glory first for a change
