The Royal Wedding got everyone talking about bridal headpieces and those hats the British call Fascinators.
If you don’t want to run the risk of looking like Princess Beatrice in her outrageous hat, we have some suggestions for both the bride and her wedding guests courtesy of Jen Goth and Jamie Coulter — owners and creators of ban.do.
Their accessories line is a fave of celebs Taylor Swift (pictured in ban.do), Kelly Osbourne and Carrie Underwood, who looked stunning on her wedding day in a gorgeous sweeping feather custom made by ban.do, created by using a mix of vintage brooches and earrings as well as shiny new Swarovski crystal chains for added glam.
Here are their picks for any type of wedding:
BLACK TIE FORMAL
If you’ve opted for a black tie wedding, then you are obviously ready to go glam, and nothing says glam quite as well as sparkly crystals. That’s why, without a doubt the perfect piece for a black tie formal wedding is our “paramount jeweled headband,” which features sparkly clear Czech crystals on a gold plated band. Over-the-top glamour, so you won’t need any other accessories! $350
The garden wedding is the perfect occasion for a sweet flowy dress and flowers in your hair. The ban.do “rose halo”, which is an oversize rose made up of layers of ruffled silk is attached to a halo of off-white ribbon wrapped wire, has a hippie chic vibe that is both bohemian and girlie. Wear the halo over long beachy waves or tuck it into an updo. This style is a favorite of Taylor Swift. $130
Whether your destination is wine country, a seaside town or anywhere in between, the vintage inspired “odette crystal bobbi pin” is small enough to slip into a carry on, so you won’t have to worry about it getting crushed in your luggage. The gorgeous silverplated pin, which is made with clear crystals, looks like something you could find in your grandmother’s jewelry chest. Looks equally pretty with long Veronica Lake style retro waves or worked into an updo. Wear it for your wedding night and throughout your honeymoon. $130
If tying the knot barefoot in the sand is what you have planned for your big day, our light and airy floral corsage, the “organza flower,” is like a breath of fresh air.
