Calling all non-traditional brides: it’s now totally ok to ditch the regular veil. Many designers showed their collections styled with some major headwear during Bridal Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2017. We’re not saying that brides are immediately going to start rocking these IRL, but let’s just use them as over-the-top inspiration like they’re meant to be, shall we?
- A dramatic take on the flower crown at Ines di Santo
Want your wedding to be like Coachella, but more um, sophisticated? These bold rose hats are for you! To pull it off, keep the rest of your beauty look simple — nothing should compete with the hat. (Not that anything really could compete with it, but we’re just making sure you know that this is not the place for a smoky eye).
- Crystal caps at Naeem Kahn
Khan has never shied away from concentrated sparkly detailing on his designs, or pairing dramatic hair accessories with equally dramatic gowns. This hair jewelry is like chain mail, but elegant and regal.

We can’t be the only ones who got major ice queen vibes from this Theia collection. It’s like Emily Blunt‘s fierce and freezing character from
The Huntsman: Winter’s War
has come to life and is walking down a (very snowy) aisle.

- Abstract goldleaf crowns at Galia Lahav
For the bride whose more inspired by Charlize Theron‘s Huntsman character than Blunt’s, metallic hair appliqués. Don’t worry, these are way more “ethereal queen” than “evil queen.”
- 3-D branch fascinators at Mira Zwillinger
The hottest floral patterns right now aren’t just about the blooms: the stems play a major role in the motif (hi, Stella McCartney Resort 2016). These intricate pieces play off of the blossoms on the dresses while also providing an element of fairy princess charm that only a dainty headband can bring.
