Wedding hair: Veils, combs and fascinators: What to choose?

by June 27, 2012

When I got married I decided not to wear a veil.  At the time, it was a surprising decision for some.  Most people I knew wore a veil.  But for whatever reason, I didn't feel it was for me. I did, however, want something special for my hair.  I was having an updo and a special-something was needed to stand out.  I ended up with a custom made, small tiara.  It was modelled to look like leaves and grapes (we were married at a vineyard) and it was perfect. Since then (that was over 8 years ago!), I've noticed the trends for wedding hair bling are changing.  I definitely see different options beyond a traditional veil or tiara. Everything looks so beautiful! However, selecting the right head piece or accessory still comes down to personal choice and style. Here are some options: The Fascinator Perhaps it was the Royal Wedding so many of us watched last year that prompted the fasinator as being a stylish option, but just last week when I was at the hair dresser a bride had one ready to go in her hair.  This particular one had a mini veil attached.  It was stunning.  But not all fascinator options have to have the veil.  Feathers, jewels and beads seem to be popular options.

  The Headband My sister almost went with a headband and it was a really pretty option.  Some of them remind me of 1920's fashion.  They are simple and pretty.  I like this one with long, flowing hair. image source: TruLuCouture Etsy Shop The Comb This is such a versatile piece - it can be worn with an updo, a side sweep and many other hair styles, a comb is pretty and full of bling.
