The beauty of planning your own wedding is that you can handpick each and every element of your big day, from the location to the menu and from the music to the flowers. Every aspect of your day is bespoke to you and your partner and this gives you the opportunity to tailor it to your likes and dislikes. If you have decided against wearing a veil but are still keen to wear something to accessorise, there are plenty of beautiful veil alternatives to choose from, which may be better suited to your chosen wedding styles. Here are just a few ideas to give you some inspiration:

Flower crown

If your wedding has a bohemian, whimsical theme running through it, a flower crown can be the perfect addition to your outfit. It gives you total flexibility in terms of colours and you can be as subtle or as decadent as you like when it comes to choosing which flowers or foliage to use. If you’re planning on getting married outside, or having your drinks reception outdoors, a floral crown is the perfect addition to your outfit, creating a real connection to nature.

Hairpin

Whether you’re wearing your hair up or down, a hairpin can be a beautiful accessory – providing a subtle addition to your outfit, which can be matched by your bridesmaids and flower girls. 

Wide brim hat

An emerging trend in recent years, bridal hats have grown in popularity and are seen as the perfect bridge between classic and contemporary style. 

A hat can really dictate the style of your wedding and provide the perfect finish to your bridal outfit. From Fedoras to Panama and floppy hats, there is a style to suit, you just have to work out which one is right for you and own it!

Headdress 

From diamond and pearl headpieces to a chic feather headdress, there’s a jaw dropping amount of choice when it comes to bridal headpieces. You can go for something flamboyant, minimalist, elegant or rustic – the choices are endless. Once you’ve decided on your wedding theme and the style of your dress, spend some time on Pinterest and try not to be too overwhelmed by the choices!
