Should you make a "fashion statement" on your wedding day, or should you make a statement about your exquisite taste? The main thing is to represent yourself in your most beautiful state which will transcend time. If your essence is a "fashionista," and you must keep that image on your wedding day, then by all means go for it. However, if you choose a headpiece that is trendy and fashionable, you must be careful that it is truly a work of art and will enhance, not detract. The bridal ensemble should flow as an entire look from head to toe. If there is one element that is too fussy or ridiculous, it will be a mistake. The headpiece is very important as an accessory, not the focal point. The bride should be the focal point. Some brides make the mistake of translating fashion fads into their wedding. The wedding fashion statement should be your exquisite taste. A huge feather glued to a clip might seem grand, but if not artfully and tastefully constructed and designed, it will look outrageous. A 1920's flapper girl is not what you want to look like on your wedding day, is it? A gigantic fake flower that looks like it came straight out of a craft store does not a bridal look make. On the other hand, you can be creative and new, and still maintain classic style. If properly designed and created, a feather headpiece can be stunning, a graceful silk flower can adorn the hair, and a vintage lace headpiece with a 20's flair can be exquisite. Just be extremely careful when choosing your headpiece. If you opt for cutting edge, make sure you are purchasing the best quality, style, and beauty, and that you are not just purchasing the latest fad.
