Bridal Hair Chain Instead of a Veil? – Ask Emmaline

If you’re trying to complete your bridal look, but you’re not sure about the veil yet, you should consider a bridal hair chain as one option. We spotted these unique hair chains over at Lottie Da Designs and we are in LOVE with how gorgeous they are! I even dare to say that hair chains might replace the veil for many brides this season. And we were happy to have found them, especially because bride-to-be, Leah, wrote to us about this very topic a few weeks ago. Leah spotted a hair chain in a wedding magazine, but forgot where it was from and wasn’t even that crazy about the particular design of that chain; instead, she wanted some recommendations for other hair chains because she loved the idea of wearing one. So, we did our best digging and found a bridal hair chain collection we knew she’d love as much as we did! Here’s what she wrote to us in our Ask Emmaline inbox:

“Hi Team Emmaline! I saw a hair chain worn by a bride in a magazine but I was wondering if you’ve seen other styles you could recommend? Also, is a bridal hair chain fancy enough to be worn instead of a veil?

Fantastic question! Anything you choose to wear in your hair is fine, as long as YOU love the look. (It’s always your day, your way… that’s our motto here at EB.) You don’t have to wear a veil — or anything else in your hair — if you really don’t want to. In fact, we love when brides opt for something that aligns more closely with their personal style, like a hair chain for a free-spirited bohemian bride or a bridal headpiece for a vintage bride. We’ve shared veil alternatives in the past, but these bridal hair chains are a new favorite of ours. Heck, I want one just to wear to a fancy dinner or soiree. Take a look at this unique new find and tell us: would YOU wear a hair chain instead of a veil?
