If you want to keep the style of your wedding as traditional as possible, a veil is the way to go. Although trends in veils have definitely changed over the years, the tradition of veils dates back to biblical times. If the idea of tradition appeals to you, but you don't want anything too crazy, try something simple like this:
With a heavily decorated dress, it is best to maintain balance by keeping the veil clean and simple.
On the other hand, if you have a simple dress, an ornate veil might be the perfect touch you're looking for!
TIP: If you don't feel comfortable wearing the veil throughout your whole wedding day, you can take it off after the ceremony! When choosing a veil, whatever you do, make sure it's exactly what you want and how you want it! Make sure you test it out, and take it with you to your trial wedding hair appointments. EXTRA: Your wedding planner should have lots of extra hairpins to help with the possible fly aways that might result in taking it out. So if you decide that a veil is best for you, then go for it! After all, when else in your entire life will you be able to wear one?!
A lot of wedding styles are quickly moving away from the traditional. If your dress, hair style, earrings, etc. are embellished enough, a veil might just be too much! Try a pretty headband with crystals, pearls, or rhinestones that match your dress. That way, everyone will still be able to see the hair style you chose for your big day! You may not want a veil to cover it up the whole time!
If the veil or the headband isn't your thing, try a few simple flowers in your hair that match your bouquet. This is a great way to add a touch of color to your overall look! Make sure you pick a flower that will hold up in all conditions. You will have it in your hair for hours, through lots of hugs and tons of dancing!
Choose a hair style and hair accessories that fit YOU and your wedding style! No one else will even notice or care if you are wearing a veil or not, as long as you are comfortable and confident in what you choose! It's your day to look and feel beautiful!
