If a veil isn't your thing (or doesn't "go" with your dress), you have more to choose from than a simple up-do or a flower crown. Check out these show-stopping wedding veil alternatives. More timeless than trendy, there's an option to fit every bridal style.
The Mixed-Media Headpiece
Want some florals but not all? We love what Pozie by Natalie created for this styled shoot. Easy to wear with any hairstyle, this piece brings in a bouquet of color dotted with butterflies. It's memorable and enchanting. Perfect for a garden wedding!
Going for an elegant vintage look? May we suggest a draped headpiece like this pearl beauty from Arianna Tiaras. The best part about this option is the versatility—drapes can be worn across the forehead or cascading in the back. With an up-do or without. It's always stunning and works with a range of styles.
The Floral Floppy
The floppy might be so 2017, but we're seeing floral-adorned floppies everywhere and there's something really endearing about them. Perfect for the rustic bride, the boho bride, or any bride who loves chic comfort, we give the Floral Floppy two thumbs up. Photographer Marissa Kay captured this look styled by The Bloom Bar Co.
Wearing your hair in a braid, low ponytail, or loose up-do? A coiled headpiece adds just the right amount of elegance. Whether you prefer a gem-like or floral option, the vine epitomizes the soft, romantic style. Check out this stunning Entwined Vine from Arianna Tiaras' 2018 collection.
The Statement Wide-brim
If you're really into fashion, consider the ultra wide-brim hat. They make for really glamorous (and fun) photos, and are a great option for an outdoor wedding. Sure, it will eventually go down as one of those "Did she really wear that" pieces, but what doesn't? If it makes you feel like a goddess, go for it. We're especially fond of this all-lace "Mandy" hat from Livné White.
Thanks to the royal wedding, miniature hats and fascinators are popping up everywhere. And why not? The pillbox hat is one of our favorites. A Jackie O staple and a classic nod to sophistication, this little statement would pair perfectly with a straight-line gown, a shift dress, or any kind of bridal "suit". Here's one from Coque Millinery that we love.
The Crystal Headpiece
Want a little sparkle? A glistening accessory can bring just the right amount of glam. With modern, art deco, and vintage elegance all rolled into one, we love options like the Aurea Rays artisanal headpiece (handmade with Swarovski crystals!) from Aura by Carolina.
