Your choice of wedding hairstyle and accompanying veil can be a difficult one to make, especially as it has to complement your choice of accessories and gown for the day. There are some useful hints and tips for the bride when making the right decision as to the wedding hairstyle and accompanying head piece.
If your bridal wedding dress is elaborate, you must steer clear of elaborate head pieces to avoid overkill. You must rather opt for a simple shoulder length veil to draw attention to the gown. Your hair can be swept up or held in a loose chignon, with the veil providing a simple but elegant statement to accompany the bold wedding gown.
On the other hand, if your dress is simple and stylish, you can get away with wearing an elaborate head piece. You can then further draw attention to this part of your accessory by having your hair in a polished up do or bun to lend a bold statement to your headpiece. Another option is to wear a chapel length flowing bridal veil to further balance out your simple wedding gown.
If you opt for a birdcage veil with a 50’s look, avoid letting your hair down and rather have it up in a loose classic up do or in a sleek low bun. Alternatively, you do not have to wear a veil and can rather opt for an elaborate flower or head piece pinned to the side of your head, just above your ear. This works well if your hairstyle is very trendy and you rather opt to showcase this than the head piece.
