    8 Alternative Wedding Veil Ideas from Tessa Kim

    Posted September 23, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

    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.

    Spotted: this magnolia single stem bouquet proves that you don’t have to go big to make a statement. Instead of carrying a huge bouquet of flowers, consider one large bloom – like a magnolia, for instance – as a single stem bouquet.
