The Jewelled Hair pin
The humble hair pin is no longer a modest, monochromatic non entity. In its designer avatar it adorns the hair of the beautiful bride and the tresses of the fashionista. A colorful, brilliant, bejewelled hair pin is a fashion statement.
From rhinestone to crystal, pearl encrusted to multicolored, the bride has a host of hair pins to choose from. Many hair pin sets also have complementary pins for the bridesmaids too. You could also choose to feature the stones on the pins to blend with the theme colours of the wedding. If you would be going for the traditional hair accessories for the wedding ceremony, the reception and other functions would be the right occasions to bring out your cheery accessories.
For the bride who opts for a gown for the ceremony, a simple headband can be complemented with the hair pin. Pearl hair pins, in white or ivory are a classy version. Gold too will look good against ivory wedding sarees. You could also match it against the details in your gown or saree, a floral work can be complemented with a similar detail in your hair pin. Always take along your wedding outfit when you shop for the hair accessories, so that you can match them perfectly.
If your mother or grandmother has precious antique hairpins that was part of their spacial day, make them part of your too, it will be a great memento of shared history.
