In Roman times the wearing of a veil for a wedding ceremony was thought to keep evil spirits at bay before the groom would see his bride. Today traditionally the veil is worn as a mark of respect especially during a church ceremony, covering both the face and shoulders of the bride. Veils are usually accessorised with a beautiful tiara, adorned with crystals, diamante and glass beads.
The options are endless, they are available in many bridal wear shops as ready to wear pieces or can be specially commissioned and made by one off designers who exhibit at wedding shows. They can be ordered in a vast range of colours and metals to match your particular dress theme and style.
A well established tiara designer will be able to show you a range of styles that will suit your face shape and enhance any details that are in your wedding dress. It is best to try on different styles to see which will suit you best. Tiaras also have the advantage of adding a little height to any hair style. If you decide to wear a tiara it will be needed at the time you have your hair and make up trial, so plan ahead.
