The accessory that is perhaps most associated with brides is the wedding veil – from blusher to cathedral-length styles, those diaphanous layers of fabric are often considered the finishing touch to a bride’s ensemble. However, cascading lengths of silk tulle aren’t always practical, or simply don’t line up with a bride’s vision or style. And that’s perfectly fine – if your wedding setting isn’t conducive to acres of veil or you have a different look in mind, there are plenty of gorgeous options that are equally becoming of a bride.
From beautiful blossoms to sparkling hair accessories, we outlined the top wedding-day alternatives to bridal veils. Browse the images below for inspiration, and let us know your thoughts on opting out of this traditional bridal accessory.
