A Bridal Tiara can be the perfect way to finish off your wedding day look.
It’s very important that your Tiara compliments your wedding dress and flatters your face but it’s often difficult to know how to choose the one that will be just right for you.
Leanne from Contemporary Tiaras very kindly shares her top hints & tips to help you choose the perfect Tiara.
Know Your Face
To choose a Tiara or comb it is helpful to know what shape your face is. For example, if you have a round face avoid wearing a Tiara where the design is all the same height and follows the round shape. By simply choosing a Tiara with a raised design in the centre, it will give you more height and your overall look will be complete.
Harmonise Your Head Piece
If you are wearing a gold dress then choose gold as your base colour and make sure all of your accessories are the same. Careful use of colour and design can enhance your look – remember your Bridal Tiara is a finishing touch and must compliment your dress rather than fight against it.
When trying on Tiaras you need to imagine that you have your dress on – not Jeans and a Jumper. The Tiara may look great when you are in your casual clothes but get lost on the big day.
It’s Your Day
Make sure you look at all the options before diving in and buying a Tiara. There are many ways to find the tiara that is right for you so don’t be rushed into to buying it when you are in the dress shop. An especially nice touch is to have your Bridal Tiara designed and made for you – it’s not as expensive as you may think!
Design Your Own Bridal Tiara
If you are giving your big day a theme a Tiara can help to carry the theme through or it can be as subtle as you like. Having a Tiara designed especially for you will help give your day a more personal touch.
The Hair Style Or the Bridal Tiara – Which Comes First?
The answer is whichever one is most important to you. If it’s the Tiara, choose one that looks great on you first, then take it to your hairstylist to work around.
If your hairstyle is more important, select your style first and then look for a Bridal Tiara. It’s not as difficult as it sounds – just go with your intuition, keeping in mind that no matter which you choose first, both your Tiara and hairstyle should work well together – try to keep the styles similar.
