Sparkling Hair Accessories

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2002

Every bride should shine on her wedding day. You can do so, quite literally, by adding a sparkling tiara, Barrette, or other hair accessory to your ensemble. Let the style of your dress guide your choice. A dazzling crystal tiara can be the perfect complement to a traditional gown, for example, whereas a more subtle hairpin or comb may be just the thing for a modern sheath.

Give some thought as well to how you will style your hair at your wedding and the veil you have chosen, if any, before making your decision. Knowing whether you want a piece that will become an heirloom or one that will just survive the day can help you determine what to look for and how much to spend.

Above, the crystal tiara by Lori London recalls the fanciful crowns of fairy tales. A touch of fantasy is also reflected in the crystals and freshwater pearls of this headpiece by Jennifer Leigh.
