Not to Veil…The Alternative?
I planned my own my wedding in 2011 and having found my 1950’s dress, shoes and vintage lace garter specially made in RAF blue (in honour of h2b), I soon realised that when it came to topping off the desired look with the perfect head wear, it wasn’t going to be simple- I was faced with an endless array of alternatives…
Floral Crowns or Halos
The Bridal floral crown has seen a real revival in the past year, especially for vintage and bohemian inspired Brides.
This is an elegant wedding day hair accessory for Brides looking for classic styling or for contemporary Brides seeking a sassy semi veiled look.
For the Bride who wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day, the tiara will add a touch of elegance to any hairstyle and the type of tiara should emulate the Bride’s wedding dress of choice.
Hair Slides & Combs
Not only are they versatile but also very pretty which makes a stylish alternative to a full tiara. Combs can be worn on top of the head (tiara style) or just above the ear for that vintage look.
Head bands & Alicebands in particular anything vintage are really popular at the moment; regardless if the Bride has long or short hair, a band will give you a stunning look.
Hair pins are not only small but a very versatile wedding accessory that can be clustered together for a dramatic look or scattered through any updo hairstyle.
Oh and just in case you are wondering…I opted for a birdcage plus hair pins.
