Chicago Urban Art Society Wedding
Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”

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.)

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.
