The Beachside Bride’s Tiara Guide

Alexander McQueen

Reminiscent of the Little Mermaid or Isolde, a beachside wedding blends enchantment and mystery. The sea brings endless possibilities and beauty, while the sea wind does its best to tousle your locks into oblivion. If you’re lucky enough to plan a beach, river or lakeside wedding, make sure your tresses are secure. . . but that doesn’t mean you have to forego the elegance and charm of a perfect headpiece. Whether you’re going for a crowd-stunning or simple, bohemian look, there’s a tiara to bring it to life.

With A Starfish, You’re A Star

The ocean has inspired as much jewelry as it has poetry. When you’re standing on the beach with the love of your life, why not let it inspire your look, too? Seashells have been used as symbols for rebirth for centuries, and the starfish is a religious symbol for safety and purity. You don’t, however, have to be invested in the symbolism to reap the beautiful benefits of a sea-inspired tiara at your beach wedding. Ocean inspired tiaras can be as affordable as they are lovely, and you can find them on Etsy for less than $100.00.

For The Bohemian Beach Babe

You don’t have to be a treehugger to benefit from the beauty of the bohemian look. Flowers probably acted as the original tiara, so it’s only fitting to pay homage to nature with a floral tiara. From a simple, hand picked flowers to an elaborate, pearl-enhanced configuration, the floral tiara symbolizes life and spring. For a destination like Hawaii, a hibiscus or other tropical flora is fit for a princes, and you can slip into a sexy bikini and be whisked away into the sunset. Although the prices for real flower tiaras vary, The Fashion Interview blog offers a simple step-by-step guide to making your own here.

Fairytale Elegance

For the hopeless romantic and impossibly chic, the whimsy of a fairytale tiara is perfect for a rustic, enchanted beachside setting. Instead of the formality of a crown-like appendage, soft and flowing metal vines with porcelain or gemstone flowers. Stars like Anne Hathaway have walked down the aisle of their outdoor wedding with gorgeous floral inspired headpieces.

Securing Your Tiara in an Outdoor Wedding

If you’re going for a curly look, the wind can quickly tangle and dismantle your carefully placed coils. Instead of opting to run your fingers through them, which could dislodge the tiara and cause split ends, “Naturally Curly” advises that you use an extra moisturizing product that will allow your hair to bend gracefully in the breeze. For taut up-dos, the opposite is the case: hairpins and extra strong hold are your best friends. Also consider a variety of hairpin sizes so that your gorgeous tiara stays in place.
