Jessica Beattie Headpieces and Accessories

The bridal headpieces from the Jessica Beattie Bridal Enchanted Collection are mostly reminiscent of old-world Hollywood glamour.

Jessica, a milliner from Sydney specializes in custom-made weddings accessories such as headpieces and hats. She also designs headwear for special and casual occasions, and race events.

“I love millinery,” says Jessica. “It’s a free-form design discipline where there are no boundaries. The result is a piece of art…created to make the wearer feel stunning and other people to sit up and take notice of the person who’s wearing it.”

Just recently married, Jessica created headwear for her entire bridal entourage. This gave her the inspiration for a new collection and gave rise to the launch of her bridal line this year.

Hair Comes The Bride

Wedding hair accessories may be one of the smaller details of your wedding day, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less important. There are countless styles and designs to choose from – flowers, feathers, combs, pins, birdcage veils, hats, tiaras, headbands – the list goes on and on.

Keep in mind the detailing of your gown when making your final decision on wedding accessories. Does your dress have pearls, crystals, lace or a splash of color on it? A cute idea is to coordinate these details into your wedding day accessories to keep your look balanced and beautiful.

So when picking what to pop in your hair, definitely pick and choose on the basis of your own style. Also consider what will fit your theme and wedding dress. As a rule of thumb – if your going for a simple wedding dress then you’ll be able to pull off a more extravagant hair piece and if your going for a more elaborate dress then opt for a more simple hair piece.
