Our brides usually ask whether to go for a bridal veil or a headband when choosing their wedding hair. Our answer to them? Both! We love how a fabulous bridal headband announces a bride’s entrance while a gorgeous bridal veil makes for a dramatic exit. Inspired by their versatility, we paired them together and created several looks to help you make a decision.
The finishing touch to any bridal ensemble is a wedding veil. Possibly the most iconic piece of your bridal ensemble, your veil has a story to tell. But choosing the perfect veil for your wedding day comes with lots of decisions—from what type of veil complements your face and wedding dress the most, to how to wear it, to what hairstyles work best with a wedding veil. You can choose from a floral and lace veil, a vintage-inspired bridal bird cage veil, or a traditional, floating cathedral veil. If looking for bohemian bridal hair accessories, consider a halo veil with the tulle adorning a simple circlet of flowers or beads.
A bridal headpiece is a great opportunity to glam up your hair on your wedding day. Whether you choose to pair it with a bridal veil or not, a bridal headband is a great way to keep your hair out of the way, while still staying stylish. Choosing the one headband for your wedding hair depends on your personal taste and style. Headbands add a joyful sparkle and glamour to any outfit, and they pair beautifully with bridal veils. Beach wedding headpieces pair well with long beachy waves or a messy bun and add a fun element to your easy, laid-back style. They also look great with lace wedding veils.
When pairing a bridal veil with a bridal headband, wearing the headband higher up like a wedding tiara and placing the veil over an elegant updo gives off a classic vibe. Wearing the combination lower on the head with the headband tilted slightly back and pairing it with loose waves gives a bohemian feel.
