When it comes to choosing a wedding look, headpieces are the icing on the cake. Here are 20 different styles that would suit a winter wedding.

  • Lottie - Alan Hannah

    £180 Alan Hannah

    An arresting Art Deco headpiece beaded with hundreds of individual pearls and crystals to give a look of shimmering twenties glamour. Alan Hannah is a bridalwear company, so they also have the Lottie dress to match.

  • Vintage Hollywood Enchantment - Fabledreams

    £210 Fabledreams

    Inspired by "enchanted flowers" this Fabledreams headband is covered in Swarovski Elements and Swarovski pearls wrapped around the band itself for a vintage glamour look.

  • Garland Crystal & Pearl Head Band - Jane Taylor

    £375 Jane Taylor

    The young royals' milliner of choice, Jane Taylor combines edgy modernity and timeless elegance. We love this asymmetric muted-silver headband.

  • Cristine - Jannie Baltzer

    €375 (£316) Jannie Baltzer

    This delicate lace hair vine is inspired by skeleton leaves and is adorned with Preciosa crystals, pearls and seed beads. It's made with flexible wire for versatility and can be worn away from the hairline (pictured) or across the forehead.

    Described by Miranda Templeton as a "vine of sparkling diamante, capped with ivory pearl to create a regal splendour" we really like the impact of this simple, substantial band.

  • Russian Princess Headress by Victoria Fergusson

    £390 Victoria Fergusson

    A luxuriously soft, ivory-coloured leather band adorned with a row of emerald cut Swarovski gems, surrounded by crystal beads and freshwater seed pearls. Beautiful with loose hair or a neat updo. Salisbury-based designer Victoria Fergusson has an impressive range of luxury bridal accessories.

  • Byzantium Tiara - Alan Hannah

    £250 Alan Hannah

    This beautiful tiara is made from hand crafted gilded ceramic leaves and was inspired by the gold mosaics of Aya Sophia in Istanbul. Perfect for a winter wedding.

  • Petworth Gold Acorn Tiara - Cherished Vintage

    £230 Petworth Gold Acorn Tiara

    An elaborate winter headdress, this band is covered in pearls, crystals, acorns and oak leaves and yet still looks beautifully precious and fragile.

  • Lady Grey - Sally-Ann Provan

    £150 Sally-Ann Provan

    For a bride looking for asymmetric with impact, this handmade ivory headpiece from Scottish milliner Sally-Ann Provan is timelessly beautiful. It's handmade using layered feather blooms and pearlised stamens.

  • First Snow - Edwina Ibbotson

    £625 Edwina Ibbotson

    Veteran British milliner Edwina Ibbotson is a favourite of both the Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa. Her handcrafted headpieces work well for modern bridal themes - this satin and silk winter floral number can be worn with or without a veil.

  • Charlie - Donna Crain

    £240 Luella's Boudoir

    A glittering comb is a lovely accessory for brides with quite a simple dress, who want to add a touch of sparkle to a swept back look. Donna Cain's Charlie comb can alternatively be used to switch to an elegant evening look.

  • Rose of Gold Side Tiara - Glitzy Secrets

    £64.50 Glitzy Secrets

    This vintage-style rose gold side tiara is a show-stopping piece that can work with all hair colours and a wide variety of gowns - and it comes in at well under £100.

  • Willow - Rainbow Club

    £125 Rainbow Club

    Regal and retro - this statement piece is covered in crystal swirls and glossy pearls and is made to adorn an impressive updo.

  • Pearl & Crystal fan - Emmy London

    £130 Emmy

    This thirties-style pearl and crystal fan comb can be worn like an opera comb, for impact at the altar, or styled to the front and side for a twenties take.

  • Ria crystal and hair pins - Britten

    £138 Luella’s Boudoir

    For brides who are focusing on a statement dress or hair, these meticulously detailed vintage style accessories can be scattered into a style to add a little sparkle and sense of occasion.

  • Lilianna Floral Crown - Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe

    £145 Sixpence In Her Shoe

    For a boho, winter queen vibe, Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe has an autumnal floral crown made from chiffon flowers, pheasant feathers and dark plum toned millinery leaves.

  • Eos Tiara - Jennifer Behr

    $425 (£261) Jennifer Behr

    Hip New York milliner Jennifer Behr's celebrity client list ranges from Alexa Chung and Helena Christensen to Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Her modern bridal headpiece collection is worth a browse and we think this handmade leaf halo looks wonderful worn with a simple white veil.

  • Emilia - Rosie Willett

    £224 Rosie Willett

    Romantic and classic, this handmade Rosie Willett tiara combines ivory silk organza, French lace flower and Swarovski ivory pearls.

  • Dazzling Snowflake - Flutterby Weddings

    £38 Flutterby Weddings

    Ideal for a December wedding, this affordable diamante snowflake design is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals. The touch of ruby would work well with bold, autumnal lips and berry-coloured flowers.

  • Ophelia - Rosie Willett

    £335 Rosie Willett

    A beautiful hand-stitched leaf garland made in champagne shades of French lace, silk taffeta and silk organza, this headpiece would complement a Grecian or Lady Mary-style wedding gown.
