Today’s bride has really begun shying away from the typical nuptial traditions. I mean, with so many cool wedding looks walking the Bridal Fashion Week runways, who would even want to stick to run-of-the-mill anymore? Even when it comes to engagement rings, brides-to-be are opting for the unconventional.
Nowadays, brides aren’t going for the classic white gown/white veil looks. While some opt to fully stray away from a white ensemble (a black wedding dress, perhaps?), others are choosing to break the mold in more subtle ways—the veil. With the rising popularity of flower crowns, as well as unique headpieces in general, statement headwear has begun to trickle over to the bridal market.
From colorful flower crowns to pearl headbands and a Swarovski crystal-encrusted bug (yes, bug) tiara, we rounded up some of the coolest veil alternatives out there. These pieces will have you shouting, “I do!”
