3. A Beautiful Wedding Headband With Large Pearls

If you’ve fallen in love with a wedding dress that has pearl accents, you may want a unique wedding headband. Rhinestones and crystals don’t match pearls, so this bride selected a bridal headband with large pearl balls.

Her vibrant red hair is done in a simple down style with a little wave, and then the ivory pearl headband adds the perfect bridal touch. She also chose a set of drop earrings that matched the pearl headband.

We think the overall look is stunning, a little dramatic with the vibrant red hair, but her pearl headband and earrings complement her wedding dress with a sheer neckline with small pearl balls.

4. Beautiful Bridal Headband With Lace Appliques & Crystals

5. A Traditional Wedding Updo With Pearl Headband
