The tradition of wearing a veil on your wedding day is one that is said to have been around for centuries and centuries. Even though we no longer wear a wedding veil for the same purposes, it is a tradition that has managed to carry on and is still a prominent feature of wedding day attire. It has become more of a finishing touch, icing on the cake, so to speak, that pulls the hair and the dress together. Plenty of brides choose to wear a bridal headpiece such as a halo or headband lined with crystals and some wear both! Bridal veils and headpieces can be a traditional ivory, bohemian, vintage-inspired, or edgy, but most importantly they are an extension of your style and your wedding dress. Available in many incarnations, find long, short, lace, crystals, flowers and bows just to name a few, modern wedding headpieces can add a traditional element to a nontraditional gown. We love pairing vintage wedding veils, such as the cathedral veil, with a fit and flare wedding dress. If you are planning a beach wedding or wearing a wedding dress with sleeves, keep your hair accessories light with a simple beach wedding headpiece like a crown or wreath to achieve the bohemian look.
