When talking about hair accessories for your wedding day, the first thing every bride thinks about is veil. 

These days, there are so many more ways that you can accessorize and play up your wedding hairstyle! From a look that is more natural and romantic to something on the bolder and edgier side, there are hair accessories for every bridal style. Even if you want to go simple for your actual wedding look, you can sport accessories for your rehearsal dinner or bridal shower to give your look that little extra flare. If you’re planning for upcoming wedding looks, here are some bridal hair accessories trends to look out for!

Barrettes/Statement Clips

This 90’s hair accessory has been taking over the everyday fashion world, but now it’s getting a bridal makeover. They’re perfect if you want to add a little bling to a half-up, half-down hairstyle with some rhinestone or pearl clips. If you’re looking to be a bit edgier, you can buy customized barrettes on Etsy that say “bride” or “love.” If you want to make them even more personalized have some made that spell out you and your partner’s initials for a sentimental touch. No matter what kind of barrette you choose, you can stack them up or use a single piece to highlight styled hair for a trend that adds modern chicness to your bridal look!

Bold Headbands

If you’ve always considered yourself a Blair Waldorf, then this is the hair accessory trend of your dreams. A statement headband is the easiest way to style your hair for your big day. Slip on a headband with pearl embellishments or a silk wrap and you’ll elevate your wedding look into something bold, yet effortless.

Wearing a hat on your wedding day wouldn’t seem like the first choice, unless you’re suffering from a bad hair day. But, they’re an unexpected accessory that can show how fashion forward you are. If you’re going for a more indie, bohemian chic bridal look pairing your wedding gown with a floppy, cream colored hat could be a great way to tie your aesthetic into your bridal look.

3D Florals

Flower crowns have been a staple in the Coachella-inspired fashion world for years, but this new bridal trend takes it up a notch. Just like the floral appliques on your gown, this hair accessory adds a fun twist to a traditional look and is heavily influenced by the likes of Frida Kahlo.


With a whimsical vibe reminiscent of the Renaissance days (think the infamous Juliet), circlets are a simpler version of a headband. Typically thin with a ribbon as a foundation, circlets can be adorned with gemstones, flowers, lace, or sequins. You can choose to go with a sweet, simplistic look with this accessory or make a statement by having a heavily adorned circlet and walk down the aisle as the queen that you are.




If you’re more of a minimalist, try a velvet bow for that cool-girl look. We love how effortless, yet put together this look is, and you can easily incorporate your wedding colors into the trend!

We’ve seen statement bows on wedding gowns for a few seasons now, so it’s no surprise that the trend is extending to hair accessories. Whether you want to go big with a tulle bow as a replacement for your veil or keep it simple with a silk bow, you can channel your inner Hello Kitty or Lady Gaga and make quite the fashion statement on your big day.
