Are you a bride who wants to skip the veil? Then we’ve found a gorgeous veil alternative for you! We spotted this gorgeous lace bridal headpiece over at SIBO Designs and Sheila has outdone herself with this one. It’s designed to flow perfectly with the shape of your head and the little loops on the sides attach easily to your hair with bobby pins. This headpiece is handmade with Swarovski pearl beads, seed beads, and rhinestones. My favorite part? The sumptuous silk organza petals! This makes an exceptional veil alternative for the bride who wants to wear her hair down and incorporate elegance into her look.

Curly Hair Down Hairstyle for The Bride

Hi, lovelies! Did you have a nice weekend? I did SO MANY THINGS this weekend, list-cross-off kind of stuff. I finally put a small wall gallery up the stairs. I reorganized my home office. I did eight billion loads of laundry. I did many other things. I love weekends like this — it super-charges my week for sure. I hope you had a productive weekend, too (or relaxing — depending on what you really needed!) We’re kicking off the brand new week with a gorgeous hairstyle inspiration spotted over at Hair and Makeup By Steph (whom we adore). This curly hair down hairstyle features soft ringlets in the most elegant way. It doesn’t hurt that the bride has gorgeous hair, too. Take a peek!

31 Wedding Hairstyles: Day 23 – Sleek Updo

Hi, loves! Emma here. Can I tell you a secret? I’m loving these wedding hairstyles, but I am secretly having trouble coming up with unique, totally-captures-the-look names for these styles. I mean, seriously, how many times can you say something is a pulled back updo and make it sound unique? Ah, well. Updos are pretty similar, you have to admit, but today’s sleek updo is one of our favorites for a traditional wedding. I love the way the bride’s hair is pulled away from her face, highlighting those earrings and that neckline! Oh, and that dress! It’s gorgeous. Take a look…
