Soft and feminine, yet edgy and glam, we have to say, we’re pretty obsessed with Feather & Coal.

This selection of hair bands, pins, and a very cool modern day tiara, has it all. Vintage beading, romantic textures, sparkling crystals, and dull metallics, making it the perfect collection of hair accessories for brides who are looking for something stylish, versatile and unique for their wedding day.

While you probably want a hair accessory to set your look apart, and give your style a little more personality, as a potentially dramatic statement, (that you’ll see in all the pictures!) it’s important to choose something flattering and timeless, that you can rock with confidence.

But the lovely Emily Kent is here to help. Scroll down for her top tips for choosing hair accessories for your big day, and swoon over her fab collection, Feather & Coal.

Keep It Simple

Think about your overall look when it comes to accessorising, make sure there isn’t too much going on.

Sometimes earrings, necklace, hair accessory and a veil is overkill… keep it simple and chic.

Take It To Trial

The hair style and chosen accessory need to work together perfectly, scale and positioning is a very important part of this.

Ideally the accessory should be purchased before the trial so that a full run through can take place, ensuring no surprises on the day!

Head Over Heels

Given that accessories are really an added extra, don’t wear anything that you aren’t madly in love with, let the accessory choose you!

Stick to a Style

Make sure you are clear about your style for the wedding day when it comes to accessorising. If its eclectic embrace different tones, crystals and a general mixed palette across your entire look, however if things need to match perfectly make sure they match perfectly.

If either are done correctly, you are on to a winner.
