If done properly, the two accessories together can create a stunning effect and be an beautiful addition to your bridal ensemble. If not done properly, it can cheapen your bridal look and not accentuate your face.
So, how do you do it you ask? Following are our tried and true tips...
Begin by holding the comb upside down, with the concave side upward, as in the photo. Both layers of tulle are pulled backward. The blusher, which is the shorter layer, is on top.
Rotate the comb forward as shown.
With the concave side of the comb now downward, slide it into the hair.
Slide the tiara on at a 45-degree angle.
Adjust the tiara so that there is no gap between the veil and the tiara. For a snug fit, you may have to gently bend the tiara band to fit the shape of your head. If there are thin metal fingers on the tiara, these may also be adjusted for the most comfortable and secure fit.
If you have pin loops like these, secure the tiara with bobby pins through the pin loops to hold it in place. Cover the ends of the exposed band with hair.
IF YOU ARE WEARING THE VEIL AT THE TOP OF THE HEAD, it should join the base of the tiara, with no gap. The veil may also be sewn onto the tiara with invisible thread. Many brides sew snaps or use Velcro to attach the veil. This way you can remove the veil for the reception and still wear the tiara. You will want to remove the veil to be able to dance, and to prevent it from being pulled off when that long lost relative gives you a bear hug in the reception line. But you may want to leave the tiara on.
