Choosing the Perfect Veil or Hairpiece


Forgive us while we wax poetic, but the perfect bridal accessory can work magic; an ethereal veil or hairpiece will give your wedding day look that romantic, old-world quality that truly never goes out of style. Here are a few options to consider:

A crown of gold:

Could there be anything more regal than a delicate golden circlet atop your head? To style this queenly accessory in a more dramatic way, look for an upright crown with ornate details. Pair with a lace bodice and a sweeping train.

Intricate veils:

If your dress is simple in style or silhouette, you can add some interest with an intricately detailed veil. Look for unique lace trim, floral appliqué, vintage lace, or embroidery.

Vines and flowers:

Whether your hairpiece of choice is a crown, a headband or a pin, you won’t go wrong with botanical embellishment. Roses, vines, leaves, crystals, pearls and beads will only add to the romance.

A gossamer veil:

Any bride draped in diaphanous silk tulle—white, blush or blue—will be a vision. A floor length drop veil can easily stand on its own or be paired with a subtle hairpiece; we especially love a combination of the two.
