Charming vintage headpieces for your big day at Butterslip

Butterslip, Kilkenny’s leading destination, bridal accessory store, is getting ready for the summer wedding season with a gorgeous collection of sparkling hair combs and flowering headpieces.

The girls at Butterslip have been accessorising brides with bejewelled headpieces, birdcage veils and sparkly combs embedded with Swarovski crystals and pearls, for over six years now and add to the collection each season with the latest bridal looks.

Owner Anne Barber says, “Many contemporary brides are choosing to swop the traditional veil for a pretty, vintage headpiece complete with organza flowers or pretty Swarovski crystals for that extra sparkle – even for the evening part of their wedding celebration. Butterslip offers a large selection from which to choose along with advice and assistance in how to wear and place each piece.”

Butterslip offers a stunning selection of combs, pins, headpieces and hairbands, including classic and vintage styles and all at affordable prices.

Anne believes, “A well-chosen hair accessory is a great way to enhance your bridal look and create some extra drama and sparkle!  From pearly pins to organza flowers, vintage lace and sparkling deco designs the choice can be overwhelming, but expert help and an emphasis on personalised service should make the process of choosing your wedding jewellery a fun and exciting experience! We have great fun with brides and bridesmaids and really try to take the stress out of shopping and make it part of the wedding fun instead!” says Anne.

Anne’s top tips when shopping for a bridal headpiece include:

Bring a hair clamp and some pins, to tie up the hair while trying on pieces

  • Bring a camera/phone which is invaluable to take pics of the back of the head!
  • Bring your veil/earrings if teaming with a veil or other accessories
  • Bring a swatch of material from your dress if matching up colours

Butterslip also has a gorgeous selection of earrings, bracelets and neckpieces for brides and bridesmaids and will work to coordinate your overall look to perfection.
