Somewhere between veil and headband (with a little bit of tiara tossed in for good measure) lies the wedding headpiece. If you can get over that word, which, to our thinking, makes it sound kind of Vegas showgirl-y, which these are so NOT, a headpiece can be the answer to one of your biggest bridal accessory dilemmas. If you’re not the traditional veil type, but, at the same time, can’t imagine a complete bridal ensemble without some kind of statement-making hair accessory, a wedding headpiece is a great way to go. We’re showing some of our favorite headpieces here, including gorgeous new feather-and-jewel creations (above) from the ever fashionable Jannie Baltzer. For a sense of how a headpiece can transform a bridal look, have a look at our “Glamorous Gowns” features, on pages 326–339 of the new print issue of Weddings in Houston.
Like its name, Myra Callan’s Oregon-based Twigs & Honey takes its inspiration from nature. Hair accessories come in categories like flora (silk blooms) and fauna (goose, pheasant, ostrich feathers), while belts and jewelry blend flowers and feathers with crystals, pearls and faux berries.
If you’re planning to wear a simple, sophisticated, unadorned bridal gown, or one of those currently coveted ethereal, diaphanous styles we all know and love, Twigs & Honey’s enchanting bridal accessories will add a little something extra special to your bridal look.
PS: Twigs & Honey just debuted its brand-new collection, available on its brand-new online store, so be sure to check it out!
