Wedding veils are a beautiful choice for the bride-to-be, but what if you’re not a veil-loving bride? Or, suppose you prefer a veil for the ceremony and want something simple for the reception? Today’s post is for you! We’re showcasing the first in our series of handmade veil alternatives with today’s post honing in on flower hair pins. These sweet handmade pins feature luxurious fabric material and a simple bobby pin, which means you can incorporate it into any hairstyle. To inspire you, we’ve gathered up some of our favorites from the gorgeous collection by Nia Person. Red on to find out more…
Veil Alternatives: #1 Flower Hair Pins
Flower hair pins are one of the easiest veil alternatives because they can be added to any hairstyle: long, short, medium, up-do, or a hair down style works! You can even wear it with a DIY hair bow! You can also add a flower hair pin to a simple birdcage veil to dress it up (or add a pop of color to your ensemble).
So… let’s get started with the eye candy!
This first hair pin is perfect for the bride. It is crafted in ivory with lovely layers of chiffon and a touch of glamorous gold in the center. Wear as-is or attach to your birdcage veil.
Here’s a set of deep hued hair pins – and a view of the back.
This set of flower hair pins is my favorite: I love the various shades of blue Nia incorporates into this set.
For the ultimate fashion statement, this hair flower can do no wrong. It’s big, bold, and features a sparkly rhinestone center.
If you crave bold color, this red hair pin is for you. What a gorgeous piece… I just wish I had spotted it prior to the holiday season!
This next punchy palette of pins is perfect for spring and summer weddings.
And, last but not least, a navy blue hair flower pin with a delightful beaded center. Lovely!
