Q: Is a veil too traditional? (Question by Tiffany P.)

A: In my honest opinion, a veil is a timeless classic and will never go out of style. That being said, if you don't want to wear one but feel like you'll be missing an integral element, there are some nifty alternatives that will compliment your wedding day look.


The birdcage

    The birdcage veil is a popular choice. It's stylish and can be worn comfortably all night long. Wear it simple or embellished with a hear piece, you can't go wrong!    Celebrity who wore it:   Katherine Heigl

The hair piece

    An adorned hair comb can be worn with or without a veil and is often passed down as heirlooms from mother to daughter. Make it your  something old.  For something new (and unique), shop on sites like Etsy where many people craft unique wedding headpiece for a very reasonable price.    Celebrity who wore it:   Sofia Vergara

The bridal wreath or head garland

    The bridal wreath is growing trend. More and more brides are going for the head garland, as a more relaxed, romantic headdress. It can also be a fun D.I.Y. project to do with your bridesmaids so that all your head accessories match beautifully.    Celebrity who wore it:   Ashley Tisdale

Don't be afraid to mix and match. A detachable veil with any of these options is a great solution, if you are facing the veil or no veil conundrum. If you have creative fingers, there are plenty of DIY veil tutorials on the internet and it's a good way to save money.

Your hair accessory, like your wedding gown, is not a one size fits all, nor should it be defined by someone else's tradition. Rock your own wedding style! 

Happy wedding planning Tiffany P.
