We love to find unique bridal veils and veil alternatives. This boho-inspired wedding halo headband is one of our favorite bohemian veil alternative finds, perfect for your wedding ceremony, reception, or bridal shoot. We spotted it at All For Love by Gina and it features ivory and blush-colored millinery flowers and leaves. This piece has amazing texture with a mix of satin and velvet, a hint of pearls, and a rhinestone chain with ostrich feathers and a gold birdcage netting. This wedding halo headband ties at the back of the head for an adjustable fit (with skinny soft jute or ivory satin ribbon). We especially love it with a hair down style.

I’ve never had hair extensions, but the idea of using them has always intrigued me. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on what style I’m going for) my hair grows extremely fast, so I’ve never considered adding hair extensions to my ‘do. However, hair extensions aren’t just for length: they can add instant oomph and volume to any wedding hairstyle, whether you wear it up or down. After receiving an ‘Ask Emmaline’ wedding advice request last week regarding the topic, I’ve made it my mission to jump head-in to this topic, so to speak. Victoria asks us, “I was wondering if you have any suggestions of clip in hair extension pieces for weddings. I’m planning on DIYing my hair. Do you know of any good wedding hair extensions that won’t break the bank? Thanks, Emmaline!” Great question, Victoria! In today’s post, we’re sharing hair extension do’s and don’ts, amazing finds for hair extension clip-in pieces, PLUS we’re giving away a pretty accessory for your hair (whether au naturale or with extensions in place).
