What Is Your Bridal Style? Match Your Style To the Perfect Headpiece Accessory…

Hiyaaaaaaaaa, and welcome to Wednesday! :)  Have you stopped by the Competitions page on Love My Dress of late and seen the Rosie Willett wedding headpiece giveaway competition yet?  One of Rosie's beautiful bridal headpiece designs is currently gracing the front-cover of Brides Magazine and Rosie is very kindly giving you the opportunity of choosing a design from her full collection of gorgeous headpieces, to wear on your wedding day.  Generous or what! Take advantage of this opportunity by clicking here.

Today, I have invited Rosie to talk through the various different types of Bridal Style – as she perceives them, and what kind of headpiece she finds usually works best with each of these styles.  Do you consider yourself a 'Boho Bride'? Perhaps you're more included to the higher end 'Lady Luxe' style accessories or the more edgy designs favoured by a 'Fashionista' style Bride. Rosie talks through six different bridal styles and recommends a different headpiece design for each look.  Over to you Rosie!

"I've made headpieces for some very stylish brides over the years and I love to see a look come together. It's my belief that your bridal style should be a reflection of your personality and a more polished version of your favoured look.

So take a peek at the gorgeous girls below and let us know which look you will be channelling on your wedding day. I'd like to think I'm a little bit English Rose with a sprinkling of Lady Luxe!"
