Always a beautiful bridal accessory, the bridal hair brooch quickly jumped in popularity during the last year! Many attribute this giant leap to the extensive coverage of actress Sophia Vergara’s wedding last November, where her sparkly and romantic diamond encrusted hair brooch in her long locks received a lot of attention!
A bridal hair brooch, simply put, is a decorative jewelry item attached to the brides’s hair. The brooch itself can be attached to the hair by means of a pin, comb or clip and is usually worn in the back or to the side. Brooches are most often made of metal, such as silver or gold, and rhinestones or pearls, however they can also be found with feathers, flowers or really anything decorative and lovely!
We love the versatility of the hair brooch! It looks just as wonderful in either relaxed or tight updos as it does in long, wavy or straight hair styles. A hair brooch is really perfect for the bride that wants a little extra touch in her hair, something a little understated but absolutely exquisite! And one of the best things about choosing a hair brooch for your wedding is that it can easily be a DIY project using a hair pin or hair comb and a vintage or favorite brooch from your own collection. Of course, you can also purchase a gorgeous creation from a large host of retailers, both brick and mortar stores and online.
Take a look at just a few of the captivating brides we’ve filmed recently who chose hair brooches as accessories! Casie wore a beautiful sparkling brooch in her hair for her wedding at the Green Building, down and pulled to the side for the ceremony and up for the reception. She was stunning! Our gorgeous bride Lauren also wore an elegant brooch in the back of her loose, wavy updo at her wedding at the Atrium at the Curtis Center! And the lovely Savannah wore a sparkling brooch in the side of her long wavy hair! All classic and beautiful looks!
