Wedding Accessories: Vintage Bridal Hair Combs

A vintage bridal hair comb is the perfect accessory for a bride wearing a simple, vintage or vintage-inspired wedding gown.  This kind of accessory can be used to add that touch of glamor for any hairstyle- whether the bride chooses to wear an up-do, braided, half-tail, or to wear her hair down.

Hair combs are not only beautiful, they are functional accessories too.  A bridal hair comb helps to keep that veil in place. Do you own an antique brooch or old pieces of jewelry?  You can easily make a bridal hair comb just by attaching the jewelry on a plastic comb or you may choose to buy a ready-made one online.

Here are some of my best picks from various Etsy sellers.  Some of these hair combs have been re-created or upcycled out of heirloom jewelry pieces.  Which one is your favorite?
