Maybe you prefer to grab an umbrella and hit the high streets, or grab a coffee and hit the internet highway…either way, there are 4 important things to keep in mind when choosing your wedding tiara:
It often helps to have already chosen your wedding gown before looking to add the accessories, so have a sketch or picture of it to hand when tiara hunting. Is it a strapless dress, a v-neck, a halter-neck? Does it have a scooped or rounded neckline, or is it off the shoulder? Is it beaded or decorated, embroidered or plain? What is the texture and style of your dress? All these areas will greatly influence the style of tiara that will perfectly complement your wedding outfit.
Taking a swatch of your dress material, plus some magazine cut-outs showing your chosen colour theme, can help in choosing your accessories. Even if you decide not to have any bold or obvious colour in your tiara, you can subtly enhance your look by choosing one shade of jewel over another.
Whether or not you have already met with a hairdresser for your wedding day, you instinctively know what hairstyles truly suit you. So whether you have long hair and want to leave it to flow naturally, have a short crop, want an updo, or are having a few strands framing your face…take this into account when looking at the height and shape of a tiara.
At the end of the day there is only one thing that will be the final influence on choosing your wedding tiaras…and that is your personal and unique style!
