Swarovski crystal and pearl wedding hairpins are incorporated quite often  with wedding hair styles and with coordinating them with your bridal jewelry.  P1011080 All those little finishing touches can create just the perfect look.  Wedding hairpins comes in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes.  Once you have selected your hairstyle it is helpful to speak with your hair stylist about their ideas for your hairpins.  Thinking about the shape and size and how many is your first step.  If you are wearing an up do with soft curls the hairpins to the right are great for adding in hair ornaments that can match your bridal jewelry set. These hairpins are about 1 inch in diameter and typically 5-9 hairpins are used for this type of up do.  As you can see in this picture a soft light pink Rosaline crystal are used with Cream pearls to add a touch of color.  These were perfect for one of my brides who had an Ivory wedding dress that had embroidery details in a light blush pink spun with silver on her bustier bodice.  Her bridal jewelry was also created with the Rosaline crystals with the primary emphasis of the design in pearls and touches of pink.  P1011472

If you are wearing a tighter bun style or up do a single pearl bridal hairpins can work perfect for adding in touches of pearls that match your wedding dress color.  Sometimes mixing the flower hair pin style above with singular pearls creates a really fun and unique look.  You can easily have 6 to 15 hairpins included just depending on your style and hair  type. These pearl hairpins have also been used towards the back of an up do when a bridal tiara comb is being worn to give a finished effect when your veil is off. P1012118

For french twist hair styles adding in a cluster of larger wedding hairpins can look exquisite.  The bridal hairpins pictured to the right allow for flexibility for styling.  The wire sprays can be adjusted into shapes that will work with your unique hair style. These are especially pretty when all worn on one side of a french twist.  Your bridal jewelry can be coordinate to match your hairpins so you have the perfect wedding jewelry set.P1012433

Now here is a perfect example of how to use your wedding colors.  These hairpins have a Light Azore crystals which is a very faint aqua color and are mixed with Blue Zircon which is a teal color.  The bride chose to add in the teal color to her hairpins since these were her tow wedding theme colors.  Her jewelry was create in all Light Azore crystal which matched the crystal beading on her wedding gown.  By keeping her jewelry in one color, she was able to have her wedding hair pins express her theme colors and not take away from her entire wedding day look. It truly is about balance when you introduce colors into your jewelry.   To be honest, if her bridal jewelry had been created in both colors, your eye would have gone straight to the jewelry and you would not have noticed her wedding gown nearly as much. emilyhairpin

As you have come to know from reading my blog posts is that I like to leave you with inspiration.  Here is a lovely picture of one of my brides Emily who had one of the most beautiful up do’s I have ever seen and every customer who comes to my bridal jewelry showroom is always in awe of her hair.  You can see how hairpins were introduced as lovely light accents to coordinate with her pearl lace choker bridal necklace.  My last advice is take a look at pictures in magazines and especially in the sections that feature live weddings to get ideas.  There are plenty of wedding magazines including national magazines such as The Knot, Modern Bride and Brides magazines as well as local magazines for your area for example  Manhattan Bride magazine  serves the tri state area.
