8 Alternative Wedding Veil Ideas from Tessa Kim

Your wedding is unlike anyone else’s, so why the pressure to wear a wedding veil like most brides do? Although a wedding veil is the traditional choice, it’s not the only choice for what you’ll wear in your hair. In fact, there are dozens of alternative wedding veil ideas that can be worn to accommodate any wedding theme, hairstyle, or personal preference. In this post, we’re sharing eight alternative wedding veil ideas from Tessa Kim‘s new collection for 2015. We’ve found eight totally unique alternative ideas that will inspire you to think outside the wedding veil. (P.S. If you love a wedding veil, but can’t decide between a veil or an alternative, do both: the bridal veil can be worn during the ceremony and the accessory piece can be worn for the reception. Boom. Solved.)

Alternative Wedding Veil Ideas

The most important thing to remember when selecting your wedding veil (or alternative) is to pick one that best suits your style. If it feels comfortable and flatters you, it’s the one. If not, move along: you’ll find the perfect choice for you eventually (just like your wedding dress!) Here are a handful of alternative wedding veil ideas below to inspire you.

Stunning Cuff Bracelets from Cloe Noel

When you want a piece of jewelry that will make a statement, consider a cuff bracelet. Cuff bracelets are a unique style of bracelet set on a wide band for an ultra-bold impact. Typically, cuff bracelets are made with rhinestones and Swarovski crystals which add even more pop and pizazz to your bridal look. A cuff bracelet is the finishing touch; when wearing one, be sure to accent with coordinating pieces that are less dramatic. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite stunners from the Cloe Noel collection. Take a closer look…

21 Stylish (+ Temporary) Wedding Tattoos

My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!
