It all starts with a vision, on to the prep and trial before the main event, a lot of thought and careful consideration goes into a bridal look. You want to feel comfortably like yourself from hair to heel but in an elevated way - you're the centrepiece after all.

Whether you're keeping things classic and timeless, searching for something elegant and modern or whimsy fun and fashionable, you can't go past Lelet NY for a ceremonial keepsake. From headbands in sparkles and florals to silk bows, scrunchies and super sleek barrettes and pins, scroll down to find bridal accessories that you will want to wear over and over again for years to come.

A statement headband is the perfect accessory for a modern bride, it's basically a crown and who doesn't want to feel like royalty at their own wedding?

If the veil is top of mind, the elegant Chanel-esque Hyacinth Floral headband will sit in full bloom over a loosely pinned updo, the perfect setting to hold a veil for a romantic feel. For your Princess Bride moment, only the spectacular Margaret Fringe Crystal Headband will do, a standout tiara style headband with shoulder-grazing crystal chains that will help to define any hairstyle, ideal if earrings aren't your buzz too.

Are you wearing a suit? Bring some texture into the look with a Teddy Sherling headband, so cool for a winter wedding. After-party LBD? Pop on Le Bow for a girlish Audrey Hepburn / Ariana Grande finishing touch. The best bit about these is that they're versatile, add them to your wardrobe and wear them over and over again.

If fanciful silk bows and oversized scrunchies put you in a dream state then these accessories are a dream come true.

For those planning a whimsical Marie Antoinette Regency extravaganza with hair to match, complete the look with a silk organza Amy Bow, or add a feminine and luxurious touch by securing a flouncy XL Silk Scrunchie by Gloria to a slick back bun.

If hardware is more for you, opt for a classic gold Glossy Bow Barrette or silver Kamala Chain Bow Barrette to complement your dress and jewellery. Clip-back glossy tousled waves or add sparkling glimmer to a textured lob. Barrettes work especially well in thicker hair of all textures and styles.

For the paired-back bride who has left no detail spared, these streamlined accessories will sit in synergy with a minimalistic look.

If you're planning on wearing your hair down in a bob or long and flowing, add a delicate Vera Halo for understated simplicity, and a little pop of gold from the back. To accompany a more classic bridal hairstyle, slide a chic Selene Glossy Pin into a low bun or chignon.

Picturing a sleek ponytail or braid? Lock it in place with a Glossy Arch Pony for a contemporary feel to long or short hair, or add a Glossy Twist Barrette to elevate a loose half-up style with ease.
