Bridal hair accessories just aren't what they used to be: Rather than fuddy-duddy brooches or over-the-top head bands, the new breed are like delicate pieces of fine jewellery. And it's for that very reason more and more brides are opting for them.

If you're considering going sans veil or want something shiny to pop out from underneath, there are plenty of dainty headbands, jewelled barettes and graphic hair clips that are far from fussy and make a great finishing touch to a bridal hair look. What's more, as these hair trinkets are so simplistic, they will work just as well on post-wedding hair too.  

So get ready for some pretty furious pinning as you take a look at the seven hair accessories we reckon could be The One.
