First of all, What is a Bridal Hair Accessory?

Before founding Anthemis, I embarked on my own bridal journey and quickly realized how overwhelming the process can be. One of the first questions I asked myself was, "What is a bridal hair accessory?"

A wedding day is one of the most cherished moments in our lives. It's a day where we are the protagonists, surrounded by loved ones, striving to make every detail perfect. While we often dream about the wedding dress, we seldom envision the complementary accessories that elevate the entire bridal ensemble. The wedding dress is undeniably special, but it requires equally special accessories to create a cohesive and elegant look.

While I won’t delve into the historical evolution of bridal accessories in this article, it’s important to note that accessories have always been integral to a woman’s ensemble. On your wedding day, these pieces not only complete your look but also serve as a reflection of your personal style and the overall theme of your wedding.
