Looking for a less expensive alternative to bridal tiaras? Flower and feather hair combs, bridal hair pins and even rhinestone brooches are now available and less expensive than a traditional bridal tiara or headpiece. Bridal hair jewelry is usually, but not always, worn without a wedding veil which saves you even more.
The comb headpiece, usually between three and six inches, is usually adorned with rhinestones, crystals and freshwater pearls. Combs can be worn on top of the head, on the side, or at the back, and look best with an upswept hairstyle. Bridal hair pins, usually sold in sets of six, can be grouped together or scattered around the hair. They are the one of the least expensive bridal hair accessories and can be purchased for less than $20. A single well-placed rhinestone brooch can make a dramatic statement in the right hairstyle and you only need to purchase one.
Small feather hair combs, with ivory and cafe colored feathers were introduced in 2008 and will continue to be popular. They will become larger and available in multiple colors as demand increases for platinum, black and red wedding gowns. Feather and flower hair combs can also be attached to bird cage veils, with French and Russian netting, that can be as much as half the price of a traditional wedding veil.
Wearing something smaller in your hair allows you to make bolder choices with your bridal jewelry.
A large tiara, busy necklace and chandelier earrings is too overpowering. Scattered pearl or rhinestone hair pins can be worn with any necklace and earring set and still look perfect.
