5 Great Alternatives to The Traditional Wedding Veil
Bridal Veil Alternatives
As time progresses, and ceremonies shift into modern territory, wedding attire has naturally adapted. Some brides are opposed to the historic symbolism of the full-face veil and lifting of it, which used to indicate that the groom was taking possession of his wife. Here we feature five alternative veil options for the modern bride to-be, let us know which ones are your favourite in the comment box below:
Tiara: Most brides want to feel like a princess on their wedding day, what better way to top off that feeling then to wear a rhinestone, diamond or pearl tiara giving you the regal, royal look you desire? Favoured by celebrity brides of the past such as Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, this style is perfect for the bride who still prefers a classic look with a twist.
Bird Cage veil: The ‘Golden Age of Hollywood’ is what comes to mind with the birdcage veil. Birdcage veils are generally viewed as less old-fashioned than the full-face alternative. This style will suit the glamorous bride, and pays homage to the brides of the the 1940s.
Flower Crowns: The bridal floral crown has seen a real revival in the past year – vintage, medieval and bohemian inspired brides are all turning to the floral head dress. Floral crowns are a romantic and feminine alternative to the traditional veil, and will suit the down to earth bride with a free spirit.
Jeweled Hair accessories: For the bride who just wants a simple statement piece the jeweled hair accessory would be a perfect choice. There are so many options available these days, from delicate hairpins to vintage hair combs. Whatever your choice, a jeweled hair accessory will always be a winner.
Headbands: Wedding Headbands will capture the heart of every whimsical bride dreaming of a fairy tale/ethereal wedding. Adorned with flowers, pearls and other chic accents, bridal head bands can complement an up-do or loose flowing locks.
