Bridal hats are typically small and most often white or cream. They are similar to a fascinator, but intended specifically for weddings. Bridal hats often have an attached veil, decorative netting, or tulle, and are sometimes decorated with feathers, pearls, rhinestones, or crystals.
Bridal headpieces are any decorative accessory that covers or is attached to the bride’s hair. This could be an ornate antique hair comb, a crystal tiara, fresh flowers with a veil attached, or even a simple Chantilly-lace veil placed over the head.
