It’s been said that accessories make or break the look and we’d argue that of all the bridal accessories, the headpiece is the exclamation point! It’s the pop, the wow-factor, the “I’m a queen and I know it” statement that brides are sporting down the aisle and in true GWS fashion, we can’t get enough.
We’re full on into 2019 and on the front end of some of the year’s best trends. From oversized florals to something a bit more holy, here are some of our favorite trends—and how to rock the looks for your own big day!
Flowers in Her Hair
Yes, the flower crown is here to stay—in some form or another. This year is less about braided foraged finds and more about wild pops, Frida-inspired florals, and whimsical touches. The great thing about florals is that you can easily tailor them to your own style by choosing blooms (or greenery) that speak to you and collaborating with your florist or hair stylist!
The bridal crown has come a long way from its days of dainty tiaras! We’re spotting crowns with more unique materials that make for a super modern + unique look. Think: gemstones, crystals, lace, and metal in shapes that range from sweet to statement. There are tons of great finds across Etsy and many makers will even work with you to create something 100% YOU.
I Can See Your Halo
A subset of the bridal crown, halos are taking over and we’re singing praises! Such a fun + bold look mixed with classic appeal is sure to take off with brides of an edgier sort. Try a halo crown for the ceremony and switch up it something a little more dance-ready for the reception.
My Moon and Stars
Celestial details are making a smooth transition from 2018 to 2019, and for good reason! A GWS fave, the ethereal look is even more fun with some sparkly makeup pops or nail art. Stay on top of the trend with more moon-centered accessories like barrettes and pins.
Ones to Watch

From streetwear to the runway to Instagram—bridal fashion finds its inspiration in many areas. This year, we’re seeing the re-emergence of pearls in a way that’s more high fashion and less like your darling grandmother. Bars or slides (aka, barrettes) are making a HUGE comeback, as are scrunchies, hair scarves, and bows. All of which could easily translate into bridal style…which would you try?
