Q. I'd love a showstopping headpiece for my wedding, but I've never worn anything like it before. Can you give me some tips on how to find the right style for me? I'd love a showstopping headpiece for my wedding, but I've never worn anything like it before. Can you give me some tips on how to find the right style for me?

A. Annabel Allen says: Your wedding day is the ultimate opportunity to unlock your true style potential without letting day-to-day practicalities get in your way – so follow your heart! Decide if the headpiece is going to be the main event of your outfit or if you would like it to complement the look as a whole. If the latter, then you should consider the design inspirations behind your outfit, for instance the era, colours or motifs, and reflect these in your headwear. This will allow them to work together rather than compete for attention.

If your outfit is simple, then you can really use your headpiece to reflect your personality, whether that's bold and elaborate or sleek and sassy. Sometimes the choice online can be overwhelming and it's easy to lose sight of your own style, so if you're unsure, I'd advise choosing a piece from a company that you can speak to or visit. This way you'll find a design that works specifically for you.
