As soon as they find their perfect dress, most brides are on the hunt for their veil. Will it be a bird cage or a bouffant style? Will you add a blusher to your veil? Or maybe you’re looking for something more dramatic, like a chapel or cathedral veil. Sometimes brides go with no veil and choose a stunning headpiece instead. Which style will you choose?
To make the hunt easier, we suggest you pick your head-ware based off of the theme or style of your wedding!
For the trendy vintage style wedding, a birdcage veil would be perfect. Immerse yourself in this theme by wearing your hair in pin curls and applying your favorite shade of red to your lips!
For the hippy-chic wedding, forget the veil and wear a beautiful floral crown. Have the flowers match your wedding colors or to keep it simple, wear a daisy chain crown.
