Beautiful Hair Accessories for Your Wedding Day

Every bride wants to look their best when they walk down the aisle. To create the perfect look, start with the right gown. Then move on to a complimentary hairstyle and makeup pallet selection. Finally, add a touch of glamour by including a beautiful hair accessory. If you like the idea but are unsure of how to select the right hair piece for you, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Crowns

One of the most prevalent pieces you can include in your look is a crown. These have been worn by brides for decades and certainly give you the look of a princess.  If a traditional style crown is not for you, consider a more subtle look such as a floral wreath or decorative piece that sits flat.

Headbands

Headbands offer a classic and timeless look.  They are more subtle than crowns and help to set your hairstyle. Depending on your gown, you can find headbands that offer a diamond sparkle. Or go floral instead to blend nicely with the colors of your bouquet.

Hairpins

Hair pins are elusive, beautiful and serve functionally to hold your hairstyle in place. When selecting pins, be sure to match them closely with your other jewelry and select the correct size for your length and style. Hairpins are typically used for half up half down looks.

Hair Combs

Decorative hair combs also offer a subtle vibe.  They are less functional so you can choose your piece after selecting your hair style.  When setting your comb, use elastic bands to help hold it in place to guarantee it will not fall out.

Ways to Include Your Pup in the Wedding Festivities

Is your dog your best friend? If so, then why would he or she miss out on your special day? Here are some adorable ways you can bring Fido along to celebrate in style.

Engagement Photos

There is nothing more loveable than a happy, furry friend. If your photographer is on board, bring the little guy to spruce up your photo shoot. Mix your album with playful candid shots alongside romantic moments of you walking him or her together.  If your dog can sit still, try for an image with each of you on opposite sides kissing a cheek. Just be patient and bring lots of treats!

The Perfect Ring Bearer

This task should be designated for obedient friends. The key to letting your dog take on this important role is practice and abundant praise for obeying. Make sure the rings are situated in a place where they cannot be reached and swallowed.  Secure them tightly in a pouch to keep them from falling out in a moment of playfulness or excitement.

Adorable Greeter

Give your dog the special task of greeting your guests…unless your dog is likely to jump. Dogs are happy to see new faces and they offer a warm welcome. Allow them to hold a sign around their neck and navigate the crowd to the pre-wedding festivities. Make sure they sport a bow or bowtie, so they are also dressed for the occasion.

Include Them in Your Vows

If both you and your partner are bringing a dog into your new family, include them in the wedding vows. Each of you add a line and commit to loving them forever too!
