Your wedding day is probably the only time you’ll have the opportunity to wear a veil, but if that is too traditional for your theme, there are a few other options to complement your outfit, your style and still let you feel like the special bride you are.
Tiaras aren’t just for pageants, they can look elegant and suitable if you have a princess style gown. You don’t want to look like you’re going to prom, so be sure it suits your whole theme and keep in mind the phrase “age appropriate”. If you’re of a mature age, there are other options for a head piece that will be more flattering, such as a headband.
The lovely things about a headband is that it can be adorned with flowers or some jewels without being over the top. If you are having a destination wedding or brief city hall ceremony, a headband will up the ante of drama without the dramatics of a veil and tiara. This is a perfect way to add a touch of “something blue” with a blue brooch attached to it or even make it all of blue ribbon.
A hair comb is simpler than a headband, being just a hair slide that can go over one ear or to hold your bun in place. A chignon, a low bun at the base of the neck, can be decorated with a hair comb. Whichever hair piece you are drawn to, try it with your gown and hairstyle so you’re sure it’s a great fit on the day.
